Anyone use the Wii or Xbox to workout? I love using Just Dance & Zumba on my Wii to get in a fun workout every once in a while!.

What are some games you use or enjoy to get in a workout for the day?

    I have been using a wii fitness pal game for a week. It's pretty good. I also have a biggest loser wii game that's okay.

    I used the Zumba for Wii but I didn't feel it was terribly accurate, sometimes I'd be moving and it wouldn't recognise it. However, I love the Wii fit because no matter what the weather is you can still do something fun and get fit at the same time, as well as tracking your progress.

    I started out using EA Sports Active 1 and 2. Then I bought Wii Zumba. Now I'm in love with Wii Hip Hop Experience. I use Wii workouts as a warm up when I don't go to the gym.

    Boxing, lot's of it and I am a little competitive when I do boxing so I give it my all. Works extra good if you imagine your opponent to be someone you are not happy with. LOL

    I really didn't find it much of a challange for strength or cardo for wii fit plus. But that being said the yoga was good and the balance games with the wii board is fun with someone else playing along.

    I have used then Biggest Loser for the Wii which was okay....but I love the Zumba for the Kinect. I work up a sweat, and while it isn't as amazing as an actual class, but when wearing my HRM I burn at between 500 and 800 calories.

    I don't use the Wii or Xbox but I use my PlayStation 3 Move. I got the Zumba Fitness game and I love playing it.

    We have Just Dance 4 for the WiiU, and my 7 year old loves it as much as me. There's a Just Sweat option with different durations, up to 45 minutes.

    You can work up a good sweat either dancing in the game side or the Sweat side.

    I have Just Dance 2, 3, and 4 for Wii. I use them all at random times, depending on my mood, for my workouts. I also have the Black Eyed Peas dance game for the Wii as well. I'm really into the dancing games. I have Wii Fit, but I feel the balance board isn't very accurate for weighing. There is usually a 5-8 lbs difference between my scale and the Wii Fit.

    dance central on the kinect is a lot of fun and you can put it on workout mode so it is continuous. Kinect sports can be a great workout if you play some of the harder ones

    I keep meaning to try the Nike+ Training on Xbox, but I do love using Dance Central to work up a sweat on occasion!

    I haven't gotten Just Dance 4 yet, but I love the Just Dance 3! It has the sweat option as well.

    I do wii Just Dance 4.
    It is pretty fun, and you really don't notice how long you are playing. It isn't very intense though! But still a great workout and fun.

    I use the Nike Kinect trainer, Zumba and sports along with dance central for the xbox :) I think I spend more time justifying to my kids why I need the xbox!

    The Just Dance 4 Sweat Mode is a lot better than Just Dance 3. A lot better! I've pretty much only played Just Dance 4 in the Sweat Mode instead of Dance Mode. I'm addicted to it.
