Zumba. Zumba..oh Zumba. I can not say enough about this game. It's fun, fast and doesn't even feel like a workout. I still feel like a darn fool trying to do it.
Best I'm able to do is slide left and ride, shake my hips (off beat!) and flail my arms around. I don't know how many calories I burn during a 20 minute routine (the game also offers 40 minute sessions) but I know I work up a sweat.
The other game I love that can track your progress is My fitness coach. You can choose to do anywhere from a 15 minute to 75 minute session.
You don't need any special equipment other than the game itself BUT there's a place you can add dumb bells, a step bench, stability ball and a heart rate monitor, where the game will then incorporate those items into each workout.
There's an in game calendar where you can "commit" to certain days. And this can be changed at any time.
If you do a 30 minute workout (like jog for 30 minutes) you can get workout credit that day instead of doing the game (hard to explain..but the game will give you workout credits for each workout you do on your own.)
Every 10 workouts you do, there's an in game fitness test where you enter your weight, measurements and do jumping jacks and squats so you can keep track of your progress over time.
My fitness coach gives you a choice between doing yoga or focusing on a core body, flexibility, cardio, upper or lower body workout.
Walk it out, Just Dance 2 and any of the Gold's Gym workouts I've heard nothing but good things about as well. Though I don't own them nor have I tried them, so I can't speak for them. Maybe someone else can.
Has anyone done any of the Biggest Loser workouts for Wii? What are your thoughts on them?
Anyway, I hope my opinion on Zumba and My Fitness Coach is helpful.
