Anyone out there watch The Biggest Loser?
Ever wondered what it would be like to have that evil bitch Gillian as a personal trainer?
Well we just found the best thing in exercise ever:
It is fantastic! Ideally you need 2 remote controls (one for each hand) and a balance board and away you go.
It has a whole range of workouts divided into categories such weight loss and strength. Then there are 3 difficulty levels too! The default workouts alternate jogging with other games such as swinging on monkey bars, rowing and loading a cannon. You really have to work at it to do well in these games, let me tell you, especially the Monkey bars! As you would expect, you get heckled by Gillian the whole time you are working out, demanding more effort, more commitment, etc.
I have had 2 short sessions on it and I can feel the difference in my thighs already - and I was pretty proud of my thighs before!
And, of course, it also keeps track of what you have done - time spent, calories burned, weight change (the balance board weighs you) are all recorded for posterity. Hey, you even get to choose what your on-screen character looks like, with a mini Sim-like editor function.
There is only one thing I want to know - why have I not seen this advertised on TV, in the slots in Biggest Loser? We just stumbled on it in the local supermarket!
If you have got a Wii and want to work out, you need this! If you need an excuse to get a Wii, this is it!
