the "500 moves" one is the "My Fitness Coach". I sum it up as: like a DVD (convenient), like a personal trainer (adjusts to your level of working out), and like a fitness gym class (changing). A person should do more stretching--after warm-ups and after it's over and done, so that you don't get sore.

However, it doesn't use the balance board or even the Wiimote. It's more like a video, BUT it does give you the option to select what "tools" you have: aerobic step (I use the Wii board), balance (swiss, stability) ball, hand weights, and heart rate monitor (not sure what it does, since I don't have one--unless it just doesn't give out the estimated calories burned at the end).

I like to Wii Free Step while I'm catching up on taped shows - and I keep weights in my hands to increase my productivity.

It is on the basic Wii fit game disc - under aerobics - the 3rd step level (there is the basic that is already unlocked - then comes the "advanced" that you unlock - and then the free step)

On the free step - there sound is piped to the hand piece. I leave the Wii on but change the video display to another channel (like to the DVD selection)...the Wii is still running and sends the beat to the handset - the TV is playing my movie. When I opened the free step it says that you can leave it running and watch something else - which is a great thing because it is just the basic step up and step down and there is really no music - just the stepping beat. There is a choice of pace and rhythm 1, rhythm 2, or no sound. I chose rhythm 2 and then just change the video display to what I would prefer to watch. The Wii says to make sure that you step fully onto the board and not to go too fast or it may not register your steps. The free step is all about number of steps over the course of time. No fancy footwork.

I heard they have a Wii Personal Trainer game that is supose to have over 500 exercises on it. I think it is kinda like the Wii Fit but I'm not sure if it has the step on it. I thought about getting it to see. I like the step too. I thought even if it didn't, it would be a change up with over 500 exercises, you would never really have to do the same one twice.

I love the free step. That's how I watched the movie Momma Mia. It took me a few days but the movie kept my interest while I stepped away. :)

Mii too! or should that be me too...lol

For the free step I put on some music I like on my MP3 player and just use the screen to keep the pace they want. I focus on my music and the time just flies.

If hubby and the kids want TV while I am doing it, then I turn the sound on the Wii remote and watch the TV show with them stepping away.

But I would LOVE more Wii stepping things!

Does anyone know if they have anymore step games? I love adv. step..don't like free step,that's just boring to me. I know DDR your going, but I just wondered about a game designed for different levels of stepping exercise. Love that, hate the music, but love that.
