Hard cardio daiky is not good. There needs to be hard day, recovery day with any cardio program. Just like weight trainjng, one should not hit everything evrryday. The results of hard day with no recovery day is breaking down of muscle mass and potential injuries. So hard day and recovery day (but still move).

When I bought the game it came with stability ball and a resident band. They are options when asked what you have to use. However I have yet to use those. I feel I get a great workout without them.

I have been doing this for about a week and a half now, 3 days a week. I love it, i feel like it gives me a great workout. I needed a resistance band and a stability ball so far for the workouts.

I also don't use the board for exercise...except on the day I want to weigh in.

My biggest difficulty when I first started was that I am not always told when one move transitions into another...like when you are doing 'downward dog' in a yoga program...transitions to 'downward dog with one leg up'...we are not always given that instruction, and our head is down for downward dog. So, I've learned to listen for the sound, to tell me when to make the change.

I only use it twice a week.

I found the changing of the controller a little annoying. I've only done one workout and it was 50 minutes long. It did make me sweat and said I burned 260 calories. I liked that it shows your progress as you go and the calorie count.

I have been using the WiiFit Plus, but borrowed the BL for wii. I wasn't impressed with my first day. I didn't like the changing controler from hand to hand, board, no board, etc. I was also disappointed that it doesn't want you to work out every day. (per the programs) Am I missing something?

I can reach my GOAL weight!

I think I am going to get this for Wii today! I've been sort of lurking on the board, trying to srot things out. I love Wii fit plus, but need something to add variety!

Yea those extra things are definently not required. I could see using wrist and ankle weights if you need more challenge but for me there is enought of a challenge.

I prefer Biggest Loser Challenge for Wii cause of the challenge part at the end of the week just like in the show.

You don't have to use them. That is a way for them to make money. I have The Biggest Loser for Wii.

I don't believe there is any extra equipment needed.

I'm a fan of BL tv series and I just want to clarify. I heard somewhere that Wii BL game needs a lot of extra equipments we should buy from the BL site, is that right or wrong?

Is there any way to change the settings so that there is not the break every 5 minutes? I think 10 minutes would be much better and make the workout more fluid?

I don't use the balance board with it. I haven't gotten it out in a while.

The BL calorie burn on the circuit training is really high.

It's a good solid workout, that's for sure. I bought it almost 2 years ago (the yellow version), played it a few times and put it away. I got it out last night and did the warm up and the light yoga which is 18 minutes long. I never realized how much work yoga was! I'm alternating between Wii Fit Plus and Biggest Loser.

I like it and I also Like Jillian Michael's Fitness Ultimatum 2010. Those are my two favorites so far.

I really like BL. I get more of a workout on it, than the Wii Fit Plus. I do agree, that the 'get it out' and 'put it aside' messages for the board aren't always in sync with the flow of the workout, so I just ignore them and move it at the last minute or keep it just in front of my yoga mat, and just step up on it when I need it. I also ignore the pleas to 'fasten the wrist strap'. I've used the remotes for more than a year, and haven't yet flung one out a window.

Do, or do not. There is no 'try'.

I bought it a couple months ago and never put it in the Wii. I've been incredibly unmotivated but am going to get back to it. My body is yelling at me now so I think I'd better listen and work out!

I was getting bored with Wii Fit and tried Biggest Looser this morning for the first time. I set it up for 12 week Fat-burning program. I set the workout this morning for 50 minutes and away we went. I thought the excersize program did a good job getting me working and i felt like it was burning some calories quite well. The program did the same routine 3 times with a stretching routine at the end.
Overall, I thought is was a good workout. The transitions are a little funny telling you to put away the wii step and then telling you to put it out again - nothing too frustrating. The 50 minute routine ended up taking 65 minutes. I guess next time I'll allow some more time.
I'm looking forward to using Biggest Looser tomorrow. I hope it becomes the next program I love to hate!
What do you think of Biggest Looser for Wii?
