Doesn't quite work out

One of the things that brought attention to the Wii by casual users is the fact that it is a very good platform for exercise games like Wii Fit.
Gold’s Gym Dance Workout tries to follow in Wii Fit’s (and some other games of the genre’s) steps. Here, the player can engage in workouts that include boxing, Latin dances or play games like running and rowing a boat.
But getting to the workouts can be a workout in itself. You create your avatar and enter information - your date of birth, your height, and your weight.
Then, you select which control configuration you will like to have - one Wiimote or two (two works best)
Then, you pick a standard workout from a list of several or you can create your own workout with all the dance/exercises that you like.
But when I started to exercise, I found it enjoyable sweating to the Goldies. And the game does keep track of the calories you burn, and which exercises you excel at and which ones you did not so well at.
Yes, there were problems with the game recognizing the motion controls, but these were kept to a minimum.
And I would’ve like to get a better warm up/stretching routine than the one in this game.
Gold’s Gym Dance Workout is a good exercise program for those of us who don’t have a gym membership or Wii Fit (or any games like Wii Fit). But the confusing menu and lacking warm up routine take it off my buy it list. RENT IT.

This is the first work out game that is actually fun. I have tried wiifit and wiifit plus and while there are a couple of games on there that I like, it just was not as fun. In dance workout it is fun to work out, and hard if you create a workout. The first one that I created was a half hour long and I was exhausted afterward. The dances are fun and will get you moving. Overall I think it makes working out fun, and this game definitely gets more use than the wii fit games.

Hard to Follow

The game starts out by having you do all these crazy dance moves; it shows you once or twice how to do the steps & then expects you to know what you're doing. I was expecting something that would teach me dance routines over time rather than something that expects me to be a pro already. Plus after following their crazy videos for about 45 minutes it said that I had only burned 61 calories, doesn’t really seem like a worthwhile workout.
