I love the yoga from Wii Fit and Wii Walk it Out.
I can't do a lot of the Biggest Looser or EA Sports trainer at this time because of my foot and knees.

I like the Yoga on Wii Fit at night for a relaxer before bed, then I like Biggest Looser Challenge for a great workout, But I also like Wii Sports and Just Dance.
My daughter (whose almost 3 yrs old) won't let me do less than 5 songs so I get a great sweaty workout from it.

I have big feet and high arches and have a hard time finding shoes that feel right.
I wear a size 9W to 10 W depending on how they are made.

Shoes are all important when you exercise. Of course, I don't wear any on the Wii Balance Board.

I found some shoes that fit me perfectly, and they have the soles like the Sketchers. I've got some Hush Puppy Sandals with those same workout soles and I just love them. They're great for walking.

That's interesting, I use them a lot when I am walking outside, but I figured they would fall off or something if I tried to use them with Leslie Sansone.

You find Crocs better than walking tennis shoes?

KITTY, I was having problems with my knees too (I have arthritis) then I took out my old 3/4" foam exercise mat and started walking on that.The results have been fantastic for me. That's why I probably won't ever use the board for WIO. I've had plantar facilitis and really don't want a repeat of that either.

I love my Wii Fit Plus, but I like the Walk it Out and the Just Dance, too. I just got DanceDance Revolution and I'm looking forward to trying that one out.

The EA Active More Workouts really gave me a beating. I think I'll have to wait a bit longer before I'm really ready for that one! lol

I've used the Wii Fit+ for the Yoga & Strengthening exercises, which really helped with my balance. Then I added the Walk it Out. After finishing the Superman Challenge in the Walk It Out group I felt I could do anything (LOL!), so picked up the Zumba game & boy is it going to give me a workout for sure! My knees loved that stuff 30 years ago, but now they're going to need rest in between those workouts. Luckily I still have plenty of my island to finish on WIO!

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, ... , body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Walk it Out is my fav
you can go as long or short as you want
so if my knee starts bothering me I can quit
or can even go an hour on my good days

I really like Walk it out, but the constant pounding on my knees was crippling me for a couple days after each session. so I started chair dancing to the Walk it out game for most of the session with short standing sessions. I move my feet and lift legs as well as swaying, twisting, and punching with body and arms to get my blood moving. it seems to be working cause I actually seem to be getting a bit out of breath here and there.

Then to strengthen my back i have to do some floor stretches that the doctor gave me. and I also do leg lifts and some others to stabilize my knees and ankles. I'd love to loose about 30 pounds to take some of the pressure off of my knees. I actually have a lot more to lose, but they tell you that loosing just 5-10 percent of your weight helps the health and joints so that's my first goal

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all they ways, acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6

@EROSE1311: The sword showdown in Sports Resort is an awesome calorie burn, especially at the higher levels.

Just bought EA Active NFL Training Camp. There's a lot of overlap with exercises with EA Active 2 but the football drills give it a different flavor. Last night's workout was a light one to try it out but we'll see what happens when I push it.

I just tried Zumba for the first time last night....LOVE it!

I have been using Just Dance 2 and Walk it Out for my exercise since January and lost about 25 pounds doing so, but in the last month my weight loss has slowed way down. I bought a heart rate monitor, hoping to calculate the exact number of calories I was burning. It turns out that while I was burning a lot of calories with JD2 and WIO, my heart rate was not reaching the "fat burning range" for most of the workout. But when I used Zumba last night, I was in the fat burning range for 39 of the 44 minutes. Maybe I'm on to something...

Anyway, I just wanted to mention that I really enjoy Zumba and hopefully using it will get me past this plateau!
