Experts and Wii enthusiasts alike find that the third volume of the Just Dance Trilogy is by far one of the best workouts offered around. While each one is a great investment for the individual willing to sweat, Just Dance Vol. 3 fixes some bugs found in the first and offers even more routines to keep you busy. Hundreds of songs, unlimited downloadable content, and several unique modes of play mean that you can mix up the experience every time. A great feature for the fitness-inclined is the new "Just Sweat" mode where you can select how many calories you want to burn each day. You'll have so much fun you'll barely realize you're working out.
Considered a "pure" exercise game, the latest entry in this popular game series comes with specially designed wireless transmitters that strap onto your leg, making it easier to go wild when playing. Also included is a new heart rate monitor, which should be worn by everyone who is serious about their workout. Not only does it keep you informed of your body's progress, but this feedback is also a very precise indicator of how fit you are. New interactive activities are even better than the previous version of Sports Active, with improved resistance band exercises, access to an online portal where you can track and record your improvement and stats, and even the ability to interact with and support other users on your fitness journey. Why hit the gym when you have a Wii?
While Zumba may not be for everyone, those who do practice it are die-hard fans who will certainly enjoy this Wii release. Improving on the original version, this game features an easier-to-follow tutorial, spicy music perfect for zesty dancing, and lots of routines. Simply strap on your Zumba belt (included with the game) and "party yourself into shape" as the game name implores you to do. Choose songs based on intensity (low, medium, or high) or location (LA rooftop for a workout, anyone?) and then follow the Mii on screen as they lead you through your dance routine, which offers a variety of options such as short (a 5 song set for a total of 25 minutes), mid-length, and full. Easy to use and fun to play, you'll have a blast while burning the calories.
Although Dance Dance Revolution has been around for years in various forms, this re-issue of the popular game reboots the series and offers even more opportunities to dazzle others on the dance floor. Play alone with one pad, compete against a friend or family member, or challenge yourself with the new "Double Mode" feature that allows you to use two pads for one person. 'Tweens and teenagers will enjoy many newly licensed songs that the series now offers.
Similar in many ways to the television show, the Wii version treats you like a guest at the Biggest Loser workout ranch, where you get a regular schedule of exercises over the course of 4, 8, or 12 weeks. User-friendly features allow you to choose from several goals (such as slimming, large weight loss, bulking, toning) and set your challenge intensity in order to tailor the routines to your fitness needs. New exercises, from yoga to calisthenics to boxing, offer several kinds of fitness stimulation to try. Similar to the show, there's also the new addition of challenge games designed to test your strength, endurance, and overall fitness. Even better, for those looking for a total lifestyle overhaul, there's a "Health and Lifestyle" section where you can sample healthy recipes and get advice from your trainers Bob and Jillian and even former contestants regarding their personal path to weight loss success. A highly recommended game for those serious about losing weight.
