That's a great idea! His program would be great for the Wii fit. Plus I'm sure his career could use a bit of a boost right now. Its been a while since the Tae Bo craze.

I think know would be a good time for Billy Bank to make a game. I think the components are there. The wii balance board and the knumbchuck controls to do the work out moves from his tapes. Or a good step aerobic class and I mean a good one with good music and intensity.

Thanks for the review. I saw it at the game store, but decided to wait until I read some reviews, and I'm glad I did.

It's too bad. WiiFit is so fun, and I was hoping for something similar. Maybe they'll pay more attention to graphics and response when they develop another fitness game.

The game is a bit of a disappointment...I bought it yesturday and tried it and it quite frankly stinks..I expected more of a challenge coming from someone who is known to kick but the game don't quiet correspond to the movements you make and the moves are not the easy to get because the instructions for each move comes up before you do the move but it literally only gives you about 5-10 seconds to read and understand what you have to do...and even if you do it right your character that you create don't move with you sometimes...but on a good note the music in the game is okay...good luck to anyone buying this...I'm going to try and see if I can return mine today...Keep in mine I only tried the single player mode and not the multiplayer...don't know how much difference that would make...I also only played six games on there and there is more to play...So please dont dismiss it because of me try it for yourself...I'm just giving my opinion here...

That is not good news about the game. Sorry to hear that your not happy with it. Better trade it back in before it loses anymore value. Maybe on Ebay you can get some of your money back since game stores only give you half the prices in trade in on new games. I had a feeling about how that game would play out but it did not feel that it was going to be great.

I just started getting perfects on the green steps last week. The key for me is to do a very slight hop movement with the foot that is already on the board. I don't even lift my foot off the board (you aren't supposed to jump on it

on wii fit the best way to get a perfect on the step is to watch the mii's on screen doing the steps. If your insync with them you are more likey to get the perfect step instead of the okay step. I still havent been able to the foot out front with the green step. I just step on the board and step back.

It's like DDR--the closer you are to the beat, the better the "score"--perfect is better than okay.

the issue might be with how well the board detects the steps...because I know of some that say if they step too fast (beyond the beat in free step), that it doesn't register all of their steps. If you think about it, it would take time to sense the weight change of the person being on or off of the step.

I completely agree. The step routine gets really old ofter a while, but its still one of my favorites. I always use it for a warm up for the running.

I really think there needs to be a good step areobics game to go with the balance board. You get a taste of it in wii fit but not fast pace enough.

Also--the Wii board is optional--so if you don't have it, you can still play the games.

I wathed the video and I am kinda hesitant to get it. Yes it is a little faster pace but it seem to my they really tried to hard to make workouts fun with weird activities. log jumping? Boulder flinging. I some how wish that their would be a better way to make a work out game that was like a show. Maybe like look like a 30 minute workout show that uses the wii fit pad. I guess I am using Wii Fit as a standard. I would probrably give it a 2.5 out of 5 score looking at the preview for being average. But I could be surprised.

E3 2008: Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2009
3G Studios takes Fitness Fun to the Next Level.
July 14, 2008 - Reno, NV, July 14, 2008: 3G Studios, Inc. confirms that it is currently in development on the soon to be released title Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2009 for the Nintendo Wii™. The game is set to incorporate both the Wii Remote™ and the Wii Balance Board™ utilizing some of their unique features to help players get in shape and have fun while doing so.

Jillian Michaels, a fan favorite of NBC's Biggest Loser, guides players through a virtual fitness boot camp offering informational and motivational video tips on fitness, nutrition, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle along the way. The game features 11 different motion-based activities incorporating four main workout types: Weight Loss, Strength Training, Interval and Hill Climb, all customizable according to the player's desired level of intensity and duration of their workout. And, since most people have realized it's easier to work out with a friend, the game also features a multiplayer mode so players are able to test their skills with friends and family in individual activities or go head-to-head through the entire training course competing for record times.

All of the game's activities are capable of being played with or without the Wii Balance Board™; although integrating the Wii Balance Board™ will offer players a much better workout. Some of the unique activities include:
• Boxing: Players begin in a fighting stance and are directed kick and punch the heavy bag in front of them with left or right punches and left or right kicks at varying heights. Speed and intensity are key in completing this challenge.
• Handcar Pump: Recruits must move their handcar along the railroad tracks using their arms, legs, or both for maximum power. They'll have to watch out for the objects that lay on the tracks, leaning to either side to avoid hitting them. Recruits will also need to periodically work harder in order to make it up approaching hills on the tracks. This activity is sure to give a great workout.
• Cannon Attack: Players will need to equip their cannon with the nearby cannonballs by performing a series of deadlift exercises and then, using the Wii Remotes or the Balance Board, aim the cannon to hit the targets ahead. Players will undoubtedly "feel the burn" in this activity.
• Punching Bag Dodge: Recruits will have to run though a course dodging the punching bags that are swinging from the trees at various angles, lean from side to side and duck down low to make it though safely. A great challenge designed to increase core strength.

Additionally players have the ability to customize their characters, track their calories burned, weight loss and their overall fitness progress throughout the game utilizing the Wii Balance Board™ and through visiting the game's Statistics Board or Graphing feature.

Analyst Michael Pachter from Wedbush Morgan has predicted big things for Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2009 telling Kotaku.com that, "Not all consumers might be aware of what Wii Fit is, but most weight conscious women know Jillian Michaels as a brand. She's branded as a fit person who helps people lose weight," he said, "and that brand affinity could help more people see the Balance Board as less of a video game gizmo and more of a health product."

Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2009 is for players of all ages who are looking to have fun getting into shape this 2008 Holiday Season.
