I finally received EA Sports Active in the mail on Tuesday – YES! Of course then I didn’t get to it for the first time until 6:30 last night. I was sick over the weekend, so getting over that, and I’m trying to figure out how I’m going to fit this 30-day challenge into my schedule. I think I might have to sacrifice some sleeping or blogging time. Haven’t decided which yet. ;-) I know I’m not sacrificing my morning walks, those are definitely nice and I love the fresh air (and the company!).

So I’ve started the 30-day challenge although I didn’t go through all of the basic exercises last night… I skipped about the last four because I was getting tired and I had already done those exercises and just wanted to see what it was all about. I need to weigh myself using Wii Fit today so I can put in an accurate weight for the beginning of the challenge and do a comparison at the end of the month.

Exercises: So far I’ve tried the basic exercises which include walking and running, inline skating, resistance band exercises (for the arms), and lunges. Running using EA Sports Active I like SO much better than with Wii Fit! It just seemed a lot easier to follow along with and was more effective. Maybe I just never got the hang of it with Wii Fit, but I like this better. Oh, and the inline skating exercise? After just a few minutes my thighs were burning! So yeah, that’s going to be a definite favorite exercise.

One more thing – I just discovered that people can work out side by side with EA Sports Active, something you can’t do with Wii Fit. SWEET! Yes I WILL be buying another accessory set for my husband. Yes I will, John. *grin*

I will be updating my progress on Twitter!

Thank you sooo much for sharing this post! :-)

  • Glad you finally got your Active…I wish my husband would work out with me! Look forward to reading next weeks post after you have more time to get into it!

  • Thanks for the review! I just saw this at Costco the other day and almost got it, but wanted to read some reviews first. We have the Wii fit, but this looked like it might be more effective & if I could work out side by side w/ hubby that'd be great!

  • I so need to get the E A Sports Active. I'm hoping to get it soon. Try to fit it all into your schedule. I know I need my sleep.

  • That's what I should do – get an extra accessory set so I can make hubby work out with me instead of shelving it when he's hovering like he was on his staycation this week…(grin!!!)

    Great job this week – I'm looking forward to reading how next week goes (and looking forward to getting to use my EA Sports next week again!) ;)

  • The more reviews I read on this, the more convinced I am that we should get a Wii for our house. Thanks for adding giving me one more push towards it!

  • Well I got it and now I hurt!
