I must say I'm in love with this game. I tried the yoga but I need to work on flexibility first-she kicked my butt so bad with the yoga I had to give up in the middle of the 30 minute session.

But all the other stuff-wow. She's working me hard.

I put this on another thread, but if you missed it.... If you pause the game( press the minus button) you can change the difficulty. I think this is the only way to unlock the level 5 exercises, I've told her "no sweat" so many times( I've had 260 workouts) and never saw some of these exercises. pam

Something I did the other day and you want to be careful to watch for. I selected the wrong answer and I'll pay for it when it comes up again. When asked how that section of a workout was, I meant to select "I was working hard". Instead, I selected "No sweat". Honestly, I didn't think I selected that, but considering the response I got, I must have. The next time I go through that routine, it's going to be too hard. I'll have to select the answer that says I couldn't keep up so it goes back to the proper level.

That thing is kind of touchy sometimes.

I bought MFC for myself over the Valentine's weekend. I've used it almost every day since. I really like it. There have been a couple of days when I got home from work, so tired I could barely keep my eyes open, but still wanted to work out. I pulled out the Fit Plus DVD and used that. Maya works me too hard for some days.

Still, I've felt that I've hit a plateau regarding my weight loss and inches lost, so I upped my workout to 45 min. I'm really pooped when I finish that. I tried a 30 min. cardio workout one day and thought I'd die. Decided I better stick with the other workouts.

With a 45 min. workout, 15 min is cardio and the rest is the workout for the are selected, upper, core or lower body. I like that. I also use free weights whenever I think it's appropriate, not just when she suggests it. I want to get everything out of the workout that I can.

I really feel that I'm getting a pretty good workout and I feel good about paying $20 for this. Not a bad price for something that will get me up and moving.

I got MFC for Christmas and LOVE it! For me, its a great workout. I like that you have different types of workouts (yoga, flexibility, core, cardio, etc) to choose from so you don't get bored. When I do 30 minutes of this, I am sweating & drinking lots of water too. I feel that its really added to my fitness level since the holidays and would recommend it.

I really do NOT like this game. I tried it about 4 times and I am ready to sell it. I like EA Active and Biggest loser much better.
Can you rent this from anywhere? or see if a freind has it to try out first? Since everyone is different on what they like.

I haven't unlocked them either, but the key is doing workouts on the days that match the calendar you set up and not missing any for a very long stretch of time. I think over the summer the most I've hit all my intended workouts in a row was 8 - or two weeks with how I have it set. You miss any single day and it resets the count to zero - argh....

MFC has been the best thing to happen to my health well, since I quit smoking. But in terms of fitness, I've never been able to be so successful or have such pride in my abilities.

I've done it every day for the past 24 days, have lost inches all over (7 inches off my waist!!!), and pounds as well.

It's amazing.

Been doing MFC for a few weeks now and love it. Definitely more of a workout than Wii Fit, although I still do the balance games on there. Decided to buy it after reading this thread, thanks for the good advice! Can't wait to hear how EA Sports Active compares. emoticon emoticon

If MFC aerobics are too hard drop the hops (place your foot out to the side rather than kick) and lose the arm movements - it'll be easier.

I just bought MFC on Thursday and have done a workout with it every night, my abs are burning. Seems every session we do crucnches, Maya must know I need to work on my abs. I like it, let's see what she gives me tomorrow.

I totally love MFC and plan to continue WiiFitting along side the MFC because the WiiFit is a lot more fun; but then my HRM says I burn a whole lot more calories doing MFC.

Thanks AJC for the Shaun White review. I've thought about getting it.

I also love fitness coach, and sold back the JM game. I enjoy Wii Fit more for the fun aspect but am glad I bought it for that reason. There are so many games coming out that use the balance board, it was very worth it. I bought Shaun White Snowboarding, and it is pretty fun.

I only have done fitness coach once, it was a good workout and I really like it for days like today when I can't get to the gym b/c I am snowed in. I have been encouraging everyone I know to get it, I got my copy for $30 at Gamestop. I'm letting my friend borrow it this weekend so she can try it out.

I had trouble keeping up too. I just went slow through those parts. When Mya asks how you did-make sure you hit-I couldn't keep up. It will be a little easier the next time.

I just keep moving during the sections that are too tough --- you'll get there before you know it. I have only been using it for a few weeks, and I can already notice a difference in how well I can keep up.

I wanted this sooo much all last month listening to you gals and others raving about it (MFC). It finally got released in the UK at weekend and I got it. But, yeah there's a big but, I'm not fit enough for it!! With Maya setting it at difficulty level 1 I still can't keep up. So now I'm wondering whether I should file it in the cupboard and use just the Fit board until I've lost a handfull of st? (oh yeah st = 14lb ) I'll get there eventually.

I finally got it and tried it out--yep it works ya. Glad I picked a 15 minute workout!!

It's fun, even if it doesn't really use the controllers.

it's like a DVD--you pick the time and it's convenient in your own home.

it's like a personal trainer--getting feedback on how hard/easy it is.

it's like aerobic class--it offers variety.

I heard good reviews about My Wii Fitness Coach, so I bought it. I found it on Craigslist from a girl near me for $40. What a deal!
I really love it! I really does customize the workouts with however you say you're feeling during the workout. I think it;s really great that the game checks in with you to see if you're working too much, too little, or just enough.
I've done 9 workouts so far, and it's really never the same twice! I wasn't able to complete today's workout because I hurt my back over the weekend, but I'll back at it asap!

I love my Wii Fitness Coach. The fact that it lets you build up to more intense workouts is great. At first I didn't realize that it was asking me how I was doing and then adjusting the workout and I would always say it was easy...and then they pumped it up. It was killing me. I now answer with exactly how I feel and I'm doing much better. Tomorrow will be day 5 and the game just told me that I will be doing a fitness challenge. I'm excited to see how I'm doing!!! I can't say enough good about it.

I got MFC today, got the last two they had at Circuit City (one for me, one for a friend). I'm looking forward to playing it tomorrow!

I got Jillian for Christmas and I don't think it's that bad. I think we have to keep in mind that they are just games trying to get us to move more. Maybe we are expecting too much since we are spoiled by the Wii! hehehehe

I just finished my nineteenth fitness coach workout. I love it. It isn't the same twice. They stop during the game to ask how each segment was for you then it adjusts for the next time. My goal is to use it 6 days a week until the 25th then do my measurements again. That will be a month. I haven't tried Jillians but I think I will pass on it.

Oh the wii board and game is surely not a waste of money. I have had mine now for 110 days and just love it. I am almost at my 100 hours!

I love to do the advanced stepping the most as I have a bad back and can't do the bowling anymore and do try the tennis from my chair.

I use a walker and can still do alot and my balance has improved so much that the drs are just appalled with me. I have now lost 16 lbs since Aug 16th...Merri

I just got it yesterday so I have not used it much. The set up is pretty extensive and has you measure yourself and input the numbers. I wish it used the balance board to measure BMI and weight but I have decided to weigh on the balance board with WiiFit and then transfer the info.
This is much more a workout video type thing than a game but having said that, I really enjoyed the workout I did and I appreciate the fact that it asks questions in order to make sure the workout is right for you.
I am going to do it again today. The games on WiiFit are more fun but I think this definitely is a better workout.
I am also interested to see what people think. I am pretty new to this and didn't get the JM one since it got bad reviews so I can't compare there.
