I honestly prefer the Wii Active over the Fit. I find it less repetitive and like you get more of a workout 🙂

Ooh, what’s Wii Active?  I have Wii Fit, and it does get a little boring after awhile, but I think I’m about to start using it again.  It’s a very customizable workout, which is good for me.

I think the PP means EA Sports Active.  It’s a really great workout system.  You don’t have to have the board to do it either, which is nice.  I typically combine an EA active workout with running, but I could definitely get away with just doing one of their workouts.  It seems like less of a “fun game” to me than the Wii Fit is, which means a better workout (at least in my opinion)

Wii fit is ok, but there’s a lot of load time between the excercises, so if you want to work out for 30 min, then you basically have to block off an hour of real time.  I heard Wii fit 2 (i think that’s the name) is better, and you can create your own excercise routine based on what you like.  I only have Wii fit though, so I don’t really know much about Wii fit 2.  Also to upgrade to Wii fit 2, it’s only like $20.

I bought a Wii Fit last November because I thought it’d keep me active indoors when the weather was crappy, but I just ended up going to the gym anyway. It does give you a good workout… but I only used it twice. In a year. I guess “IRL” fit is more my thing.

I’m going to be selling it, if anyone’s interested. 🙂

I just upgraded my Wii Fit to the Plus, I like that much better then the original one. I love my Jillian Michaels Wii fit game.  The 2009 version, is so intense. I hurt afterwards. 🙂  I just bought Jillian Michaels 2010 and love it so far. So, I prefer the Jillian Michaels games over the Wii fit.

EA Sports Active is amazing for really toning up fast and if you don’t have time to go to the gym regularly. We have both Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus. The Plus looks like it could potentially be really good as you can choose areas you want to work and then a time you want to work out and it picks the exercises for you. So a 30 min workout is quite close to a real 30 mins. 

I found with the Wii Fit (when I did the original one – which I did for 6 months) that I didn’t lose weight but I felt much more active and healthier. It’s much more gentle exercising. When I did the 30 day challenge in the Sports Active I really toned up after about 2 weeks – but it darn hurt!

Wii Fit is ok. I want to try the Jillian Michaels stuff for Wii and the Wii Fit Plus. I’m trying to do the Wii Fit every day plus another workout.

I don’t have it.  My mom has it though and I sure had fun trying out the hula hoop exercise!

I have the Wii Fit Plus. I like it. I’ve never tried EA active, although I do want it and the Jillian Micheals one. I like the Fit Plus because it isn’t boring. I used to belong to a gym, but it was so boring I couldn’t take it anymore.LOL I even used my ipod, but it was still a bore. Plus I didn’t feel like continuing to give them $40 a month. It also does take time for the games to load, so it will take
