Biggest Loser on the Wii
So today was my first time trying out the Biggest Loser game for the Wii system. I got it for Christmas, but was really busy with company and family. Lame excuse, I know, but whatever. At least I tried it before June 20 Having read the reviews on this site, I thought it might not be challenging enough. The threads I’ve read have been pretty evenly split between people liking it and not liking it.
I put the game in the console and got ready to see what would come my way. Well, I was pleasantly surprised. It was QUITE the workout, and this was on the easiest level. The warm-up is 6 minutes, the main workout is 20 minutes and the cool down is 8 minutes. My heart was pumping and the sweat was pouring off me. Some of the exercises were hard to do in terms of the Wii Fit board “reading” my movements, but since I’m a trained physiotherapist, I know the correct body movements.
My overall impression is that it’s definitely challenging (much more so than the Wii Fit or Wii Fit Plus) and much easier to do than Jillian Micheals’ original boot camp game. If you have a Wii, it might be a good way to mix up your routine!
