    I have Biggest loser for the Wii, I like it a lot. The pauses are annoying sometimes but I just keep doing the last exercise til the new one starts.

    If you don't like dancing, I would try wii fit, biggest loser, or jillian michaels, they are all more traditional exercise instead of being dancing based :flowerforyou:

    The Wii Fit Plus isn't a dancing game. It was yoga, strength and cardio. They make everything into a game though which makes it more fun.

    I mainly use my Wii as entertainment while I work out. I have Mario Kart Wii and play it while I'm on the stationary bike. I've found that I pedal faster when I'm behind. :D I really like Wii Fit Plus and it's good for the mornings I don't want to work that hard. My aunt has the EA Active for the Wii and said it's intense. I haven't been brave enough to try it yet.

    Just Dance, Zumba, Wii Fit, Wii Sports. . . . all of those really get you moving. I haven't tried The Biggest Loser but I hear that it's a really good one too.

    That is an awesome idea! I am trying that tonight!

    I use EA Active 2 for the Wii. Has a variety of exercises (lunges, pushups, soccer and basketball "skills", step aerobics, etc). It has a set program you can do, plus you can create your own custom plan.

    Exerbeat is fun. They have Boxing, Karate, Pilates, Yoga, and yes ....Dance (Hip Hop & Latin) .... not my thing either. Love the Barney imagery .... I can relate.

    With Exerbeat you have to "earn" longer workouts thru points. Initially it's slow, after a bit, it's fun.

    Walk It Out! Not a big calorie burner, but it's very addictive. I can paly this game for hours (silly!) Basically you walk around an island, your steps earn points for music, houses, bridges, etc ..... anyway the goal is to "build" the entire island from the ground up. Instructions are poor, so if this looks interesting to you, look up a discussion thread on Amazon Walk It Out forum ... "Unoffical FAQ Guide for WIO"
  • I love the Just Dance games! I also do Wii Fit Plus a lot. I couldn't get into the Zumba or the Gold's Gym Dance, though the reviews of Zumba 2 have me interested. I'm also looking into getting Exerbeat.

    "Walk it out" for the wii is really addictive. You walk to the beat of the music, accrue points and use the points to populate your island with streetlights, bridges, buildings, as well as finding special capsules that will make a rainbow over your island or light up astrological star signs in the sky.
