Pleasantly Surprised (& What I Ate Today)

Tuesday, October 06, 2009

My partner surprised me with a new EA Active Personal Trainer game for Wii. I've had it for a few weeks and yesterday morning, we decided to try it out. I asked around on Spark to see what other's reviews were before I bought it (especially in comparison to Jillian Michaels' new game for Wii) and it was basically unanimous that the EA Active Personal Trainer is the best game for fitness as far as challenging. I already have the Wii Fit and although I love it for the yoga and fun, it's just not a challenging enough workout. Well, the EA Active is a whole different story. I loved it! I did so many squats, lunges, and it even comes with a resistance band! It was really awesome! My partner and I each had our own holsters (strapped to the thigh) and our own resistance band (we bought an extra one so that we could workout together). Needless to say, we both were tired and loved the exercises! I definitely recommend this Wii Game and I am pleasantly surprised! Yay!
