Wii Active

Shorter days and colder weather mean you may be looking for a way to workout indoors. That’s where EA Sports Active: More Workouts comes in. It focuses on simple, at-home exercises you can do without needing extra equipment (except for the leg strap and resistance band that game with the original game). The Wii Balance Board is optional.


You can do 90 different exercises with this game, many of them new since the first version was released. Besides lunges and squats you can do fun activities like waterskiing, step aerobics and lots of ab workouts.


Six Week Challenge

The game offers a Six Week Challenge so you can really get in shape. The exercises are varied from session to session and week to week as you get stronger. You can also set up a weekly exercise schedule and use the fitness journal to track your diet and the stuff you do actively outside of Wii.


Unfortunately, you won’t get much feedback or advice while you’re exercising, so you have to be extra careful to make sure you’re doing everything right on your own. But if you do everything right, you will see results. The game tracks workout time and calories burned, and you’ll often burn 200-250 calories a session.


Accessory Pack

Like we said above, you will need the leg strap and resistance band that game with the original game. If you don’t have them, you can get them in the Accessory Pack for $20.
