WOO HOO!! The one thing I just don't like about EA SA is the controls and the elastic keep getting wrapped up together. But why, oh why!, did you have to tell me so soon?? I have to wait for FALL! Crikey!

I finished my 30 Day challenge last week and already started the next one. Bumped it up to the next level and I am not resting on my "rest" days. I do other work outs or you can program your own work out on EA Active.

Just had my first workout in the 30 Day Challenge with EA Active... I LOVE IT!! The "coaches" show you the proper way to exercise. I notice that they spend time with talking you through keeping shoulders and abs in the right positions. The boxing is more realistic than Wii Fit. There are more activities and varied workouts. Their version of the 'mii' is even more realistic. I will be using both, but after just one day, I'm hooked! (I use mine with the Wii Fit board, you don't NEED to have it to use the program)

DH just ordered DDR2 from Amazon for me! He got shooting books, so I got DDR2. Sounds okay to me!

I was just looking at that too! We're planning on getting the outdoor challenge and DDR at some point this summer. And my dh finally found Jillian's game. Still, it would be nice if they came out with another Wii fit game-that actually required the board. I thought the same thing flipping through the brochure, while it may be compatible, it's obviously not needed for the new game.

I'm trying to get away from using the gym because a) it cost gas to get there and b)once I move out of my apartment I will actually have to pay for it so might as well get used to working out at home.

I'm going to wait for the reviews before I get this game but I am wicked excited for it.

Absolutely you should. I'm thinking if enough people request those features, they will do it!

Same thing with what I posted! Maybe we should send our ideas to Nintendo!

Remember what I want isn't what the new game is. It is what I want. Someone call Jillian and tell her to add my ideas to her new game.

I think it would be fun to have wrist/ankle bands with sensors in them to work with the Wiimote.

Dear child is a zelda fan. I am a jillian fan and I just.....Let's just say bob green in my book well I have as much need for him as dr phill. I really have no use for the pill man. When he put all those products out on the market and said come on all you fat people buy my 20 prepackaged bags of clever discised forms of sugar. I tell him again we are fat not stupid. OK I should work on my spelling. No wonder "O" got fat again she was taking advise from the pill man. She should of been on sparks where we would of said look "O" I don't care what he or bob says if you eat crap food you will wear down your body and you will not only feel like junk you wont want to work out.
I will be waiting for you that jump the gun to give me a review before I buy anything else.
Thanks and keep me posted on how you like it.
What I think we need it billy banks to have gloves and boots and maybe something around your middle with sensers. And kick butt

I wonder what kind of exercises are used. Personally, I don't need something that has me doing "conventional" exercises, like push-ups, squats, etc. I can do that on my own or with any number of workout videos. I like the things that are different -- like hula hoop, skiing, rowing a boat, jumping a log, rolling a ball into a hole by shifting my body weight.

I think the "ultimate" game would be one like Zelda, but where you had to be really active. You would run when your character needed to run, swing the controller like a sword to fight, bend down to pick up objects, alternate your hands overhead to climb, move your arms in front of you & walk quickly to swim, & things like that. In this way, you'd progress through the "story", never knowing what awaits you, & get a workout at the same time.

Now the only weird thing. It says in the fine print that it is compatible with the Wii Balance Board. But NO WHERE in it is there a picture of a person using it.

The time has come, The Walrus said, to talk of other things: Of shoes and ships and sealing wax, of cabbages and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings.
