Wii ACTIVE is AWESOME!!

Recommended Posts

Be prepared this is kinda like my review for the Wii Active....sorry if I ramble!:

 

So I remember someone asking a while back about the Wii Fit and someone mentioning Wii Active. My DH's birthday is coming up so I started looking into it. I read hundreds of reviews on how Active is a much better workout than the Wii Fit. Well we bought it today and did a workout. I had sweat literally pouring off of me. My shirt was soaked. We had to put on our exercise clothes to start b/c the thigh holder thing kept pulling my shorts down!

 

The Wii Active actually has a 30 Day challenge which is what we are doing but it has so much more. You can custom make your workout or choose pre-mades broken down into a full workout, cardio, legs and lungs etc. There is so much to do. Not only that but you don't have to stop it keeps your heart rate up. No finishing the game and then choosing another. It keeps on going. You start the workout and it doesn't stop just goes to the next excercise. For example you start with a run and move to squats, bicep curls, lunges and end with a run/walk. There is no choosing the next exercise. You can custom build your workout though and choose which ones. But not during the workout.

 

It comes with a resistance band and a leg holder for the nunchuck which is awesome. It is compatible with the balance board but the board is not necessary at all We might try it tomorrow with the board. But I'd rather not use it at all. I made my DH do the workout b/c he was a collegiate athlete, his parents coach track and he does physical therapy in his practice. He is also picky about workout machines and how some are bad for your body. He was very impressed. He was soaked after we were done.

 

So if anyone is looking at buying the Wii Fit I urge you to check out the active first. I LOVE it after one workout. It has on 2 day workout rest one day and then 2 days. You can also do a dual workout and workout at the same time as your partner. You each have your own trainer. OOh which reminds me they are so supportive. It gives encouragement the entire way and if you mess up it's not that annoying sound the fit does. It just says "I don't think you completed your rep...its ok lets try on our next one." So great!

 

The only thing it doesn't have is to weigh you. Yeah that kinda sucks but I have a scale that I can use for that. Also you can set your goals. It lets you take a nutrition survey and gives tips for that as well. It has a journal to track your progress and tells you how many calories you're burning as you go. And has graphs. And the other plus is it is cheaper. The Wii Active is only is only 60 bucks compared to Fit which I believe is 80 or 90 I'm not sure I'm sure someone else knows for sure.

 

I think the Wii Fit is a fun game...but to actually workout I think the Wii Active is great. I'm going to add it to my yoga routine.

 

But what I also want to know if anyone else has this and what they think. Do you hate it or love ithuh.gif

 

ETA: Sorry for going on but I love this workout!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
