Thanks for the tips .
i have been relucatant to use this game because it doesn't track properly but upside down arm trick has helped massively.
things happen the best to people who believe that the best will happen.

I've had much better tracking since I started using an Energizer rechargeable sensor bar.

I find if I put the sensor high up my leg closer to my hip that it stays on wilthout slipping off. And the arm sensor, reads better if it's upside down on your wrist. It took some doing to get just the right position, but I don't have problems any more.

I just find that the strap doesn't stay on my leg very well. While I'm doing the running ones, it seems to always fall off and then I'm trying to get it back in place while the run is still going on. I'm sure that's why I gave up on Active and don't play it anymore.

I don't know how much room you have where you exercise with your Wii, but I run in little circles around the room I'm in and that seems to register better than running in place.

I will have to give that a try. I'm sure it's the running issues that are holding me back to a bronze rating.

Try kicking your knees up higher. I tend to find that helps. It doesn't register my minute movements, but if I make them bigger, it generally finds them.

EA Sports Active seems to do a good job of tracking most movements, but it's an epic fail at tracking running in place from my personal experience. I'm wearing the leg strap exactly as shown, and it is not catching me bouncing up and down like hell in place.
