If anyone is looking for a copy of Walk It Out, I have a used copy (I have never used it, bought it used) that needs a new home. Message me if you're interested.

I have Walk It Out but have never made any progress figuring the concept out. I guess I'm just tech challenged!

I put the nunchuk in my sock on my left foot.( I make sure it's a tall sock) I put it so it's laying flat on the ankle of my foot. I find I get all my steps in this way. And I hold the wand in my right hand. Hardly miss a step unless I miss a beat with the music when it slows down.( I only wear the sock when I exercise with the Walk it out game)

I hold the controls in both hands. If I fall behind it is because I am not pumping my arms as fast as my legs are going.

Hi FreegieQueen,

I find that deep loose pockets like on "Mom" shorts works best for me. You can also walk around the house pretty far and the Wii will still register the steps, even through walls. Good luck!

I just got this game from the library, as I figured it'd be a safe and approachable pregnancy workout. However, it seems like the nunchuck doesn't always register. I try lifting my knees up high, but my little person still gets the frustrated clouds and it doesn't seem to be following my steps - plus, the high knees started to hurt my hips after awhile (oh, pregnancy). Any thoughts? Should I try the balance board?

Try changing the settings so that the penalty for missed steps is turned to off and you get credit for half steps instead of quarter steps. Wear pants with tight pockets, the deeper the better. It really is addictive, isn't it?

Based on this discussion thread, I bought this game. On my first play, at first I thought this was kind of silly and lame, but before I knew it -- I had spent an entire hour walking around (and was starting to sweat). This game has enough stuff going on around you that you don't really realize that your even walking (let alone exercising). Good choice and great recommendation from all of you!!!

The one thing that I couldn't get working right was putting the nunchuk in my pocket. The game couldn't recognize my steps unless I took a 2-ft stride. Maybe because I'm a little on the tall side - not sure. I ended up using the Wii Balance Board and even though you're not technically 'walking' -- you still get the workout.

If you have the remote and the nunchuck, you can use the Walk It Out game. It's a lot of fun.

The rainbow pieces and zodiac change location depending on time. You need to click the map in the right hand corner of the game. Scroll to the right until it shows Island map. Then you will see number of items left to build, clocks available and rainbows/zodiacs. If you click on the capsules that are building capsules, those will not show up. The only thing that will show up are songs, rainbow pieces and zodiacs. You will have to scroll through the map using the nunchuck like you do if you were using it in the game. That will show you where the rainbow pieces and zodiac pieces are located.

I finally figured out how to print the map, but I still can't figure out where the rainbow pieces are or the zodiac. I know I must not be looking in the right places.

The zodiac signs only come out after dark and only certain ones at certain times. I believe they start about 8 p.m. and go until 5 a.m. Check on the map and it will tell you where they are. Usually there are a ton in the Ranch area and along the beach and hidden in trees. You can also go to the Walk it Out for Wii Team and there are a lot of tips there for Walk it Out :)

I use tight bike shorts and put the nunchuck on the front of my thigh inside the shorts. Works great. The shorts have to be tight.

I hang it with a binder clip from my waistband of my pants so it bounces and it tracks great that way. I never had much like with it in my pocket, either.

Occasionally you have to adjust the numchuk. Mine works better in a deep pocket. I have a pair of "mom shorts" that I wear when I walk. Good luck!

Don't worry about the deep pockets! If you get a nunchuk that is an off brand, they work just as well as the wii brand and are really inexpensive.

If I have deep pockets, I'll put both the remote and the nunchuk in my pockets and then my hands are free. I'll walk a long while and score some points and then unlock things. I usually like doing this while folding laundry.

I like the nunchuk in my pocket, too. Sometimes I switch it up with leg kicks and stepping side to side and the steps still register as long as I stay with beat. I like the freedom to walk around. The balance board is too limiting. I haven't tried the mat. emoticon

Thanks to reading the comments in the tips and tricks section of the board, I finally have discovered new sections of the game. I have now opened up the fountain area and the beach area. I was also in an area that looked like a lake of some sort. Very cool. Before I new it I was on the game for 1:44, completed 19,290 steps and walked 5.3 miles. I can't wait to get on it tomorrow and find more areas, get more songs and then work on building the areas up. Wow I haven't been this excited in a very long time. Especially about excercise. At this rate I am bound to lose something.

Don't know if this would work, but on my kitchen floor rugs I found this rubber type mat that keeps them for sliding. I think I actually found it in the home department at wal-mart.

Yup love my WIO - only troulbe I am having now is Ikeep going in circles. LOL

I am absolutely loving the Walk It Out game. It is fun and I can keep it up and get quite a workout in. I have knee problems and it does not cause me any pain in my knees like some of the other fitness games. I have one problem that I need to figure. When I workout the mat constantly moves. I have hard wood floors and need a solution to this moving problem. Are there mats out there with more rubber on the back. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
