The game was boring and a waste of time. The only reason I didnt return it within the first few days was because i thought it might get better. It Didn't. Worst game I've evvvvvvvvvver rented. I want to give it a -1000000000000000000000000000000000000000.
I will say one good thing about this game it did work out my abs but that's about it...first you start off this game having to input all kinds of crazy things about yourself. Like measure your bicep, waist, hips, and the like. Now I mean off course I just happen to keep a tape measure right by myself all the time...What was Nintendo thinking? So after doing all this then you need to find your heartbeat resting, and then again after being active for a couple of minutes. Which I understand could be useful...but by the time I actually got to the game I was all ready bored with it. So the time comes where you are going to actually do your own routine that the have made to target what ever specific area you've decided to work on and your like all right now comes the fun...right...right? Not hardly I felt like I was watching one of those really bad 80's workout videos, and after about 15 minutes turned it off. If you want a real workout stick to Wii Fit...Normally I'd say rent it...beat it...and send it back when I give something this kind of rating, but I think the best thing I can say about this is don't bother...go for a run around your block you'd get more exercise out of that.

I read a lot of reviews on this "game" and decided to try it because the reviews I read said it was better than wii fit. I disagree. I got the wii fit because it would be fun and I could get up and moving at the same time. My fitness coach is essentially a customizable workout DVD. There is no "game" element to it. I'm very competitive and like being able to unlock new activities and compete against my previous scores. As far as I can tell, that's not an option here. I DID break a sweat but I was watching the clock the whole time waiting for it to be over. I'm one of those people that hates to work out so it needs to be fun for me to want to do it. This did not fall under that category. So bottom line - if you like to work out - go for it. If you like to do fun things like zumba and play sports for your exercise this probably isn't for you.
