I admit I am in pretty bad shape. While my weight is not as bad as some of the men on finale night my medical condition is not much better than many of the folks starting out on the ranch. First thing I learned you bout need a gym to do some of the exercises Jillian really puts you through the paces and you need some room to move around. Day Two I could barely move even with it set on easy. I did not have the balance board which did limit the quality of some of the exercises, but I really felt the burn. I agree with what I have seen said that they do not give enough detail on how to do the events pretty much watch and follow. Similar to a class over 1on1 training. Once I get a balance board I want to give it another go to really see the difference, but as is it is pretty good.

I really wanted to like this game! My issue is that there is not enough verbal "coaching," so you have to keep your eye on the tv screen, which is not always easy when you're trying to do the exercises. It's not as user friendly as it could be...takes some time to figure out how to effectively use, especially when you don't have the full instruction manual (when renting). The exercises are definitely effective, so that is a big plus, I was just bothered by the fact that it wasn't always clearly indicated via sound when it was time to transition from one activity to another. I also felt that there should have been more form "pointers" available, especially in cases where it was "rating" you lower than perfect form. Often, I felt like my form was perfect, but the game clearly did not agree...and I was not able to determine why.
