  1. I have had the Wii fit since New Year’s Eave night and i think that it is great! I have finished one thirty day challenge and have started another. I have already lost 27 lbs! :)

  2. check your balance board, it sounds like you have it backwards. Make sure the power button is facing you not the TV. I just did that workout this evening and did not experience any problems. I hope this helps :o)

  3. Sometimes I am wearing a skirt when I exercise and the nunchuck is covered can this be why I am having a problem with my movements being recorded?

  4. so Wii active is targeted for females?Im a male and I’ve been using it for the past week. I love it so far and Im getting a good workout. I have Wii fit as well and while I do like it I don’t feel that I get as good exercise as I do with the Wii Active. Who cares if its for girls its a good workout!

  5. I am on day 10 of my Wii Active and have seen weight loss. I have combined this activity with the Wii Fit for the aerobics and the yoga. I have also followed the journal and have changed the way I have been eating. I have lost 6.5 lbs so far and still have 14 lbs to go. I have noticed the increase in energy and endurance. By the way I am 50 and my Wii fit age is holding steady at 35. I must be doing something right.

  6. My Fiance and I are at the halfway point of the 30 day challenge and wii Love it! I have felt stronger, more Energetic, and I am starting to see the difference in the way my clothes fit. Wii are learning to eat healthier but Sticking to wii active is an achievement in the way we live. Wii Active is Awesome!

    So to the people who are dissapointed because they are not not seeing any results, have you tried eating healthy also? Eating healthy while working out will show results. I am on day 5 and I have been eating very healthy and I have already lost 2 pounds! Sometimes with other body types though, you may not be able to see results as fast as others. Don’t give up! Keep up the good work everyone.

  8. My wife and I have used this for 3 days and we both feel great. Sore, but great! Does anyone know how accurate it is? In terms of actual calories burned?

  9. I am a little disappointed yes it works you out but I have not seen any weight loss results yet. I am halfway through and I have the intensity on hard and yes it works you out but I would like to see weightloss and further results being halfway through the 30 day challenge.

      You have muscles now instead. Thats why you didnt see any weight loss. Keep up the good work!

  10. Joelle…I haven’t had much trouble with the nunchuk UNTIL I switched to a wireless one. The first time I used the wireless…no problem. Since then, it doesn’t recognize my actions consistently with the wireless version. I just switched back to the wired nunchuk and no problems since.

    I did 3 days on the EA Active,I love it .I’m very sore today and not rest. I have one question. Does anybody experience a problem when using the nunchuck? Please let me know

  12. I just completed the second day and at one point I was so tierd I decided to try and fool the trainer by just moving my arm and not doing the full run. It was great that she caught on and didn’t allow me to cheat. I sweat like crazy and am in some serious pain. Great job wii active.

  13. I’m on day 7 and LOVE it. I use Wii Fit on my “Rest Day” from EA Active. I think Active gives you more of the aerobic excercise & Fit does a great job with the Yoga, flexibility, & body awareness.

    I just got one today and I couldn’t believe how much it works you out!!! hopefully i can stick with it for 30 days.

  15. I like it a lot, my only complaint is the leg band that holds the nunchuck can slip off during the workouts multiple times

  16. I am on day 18 of the 30 day challenge and LOVE it. There are exercises that you can use your wii fit board with!! There is also a function where you can go in and create yor own custom workouts which is really cool because you dont really realize just how HARD you are being worked out while shooting hoops or pitching baseballs!!

    I just started Active today and I am impressed! I worked up a huge sweat in a short period of time.
    Wii Fit was more game orientated. I’m anxious to finish the 30 day challenge and see my results!
    I did get confused with the skating exercise. It would say to lift right foot but you really needed to lift the left foot or kick over the hay! Same with the lift left foot! You needed to lift the right foot. Needless to say, I didn’t do too well until I figured out something was wrong. Did anyone else notice that or am I doing something wrong???

    • It worked great for me. I’m guessing you were using the balance board right? If so, is it possible that you had it turned around backwards or that you had the nunchuck attached to the wrong leg??

      • try it without the board,it makes you jump over the ramps and is much much harder work than the one legged stuff on the board!! wii active is awesome,wii fit is just an expensive set of scales!!

  18. I’m on day 3 of the 30 day challenge and I am also sore… I love it though! I think it is a lot of fun.

  19. I am on day 2 of the 30 Day Challenge and I am so sore!! It’s really fun, though, and I know I’m getting a good workout.

    I’m on day 2 of the 30 day challenge and I love it. I feel great! what a great way to work out and have fun.

    Wii Active is great! My boyfriend and I have been going at it for a few days and we are seeing huge results. More energy in bed and more energy at work. EA did a great job with this game and I can see the future getting brighter for games like these.

  22. My husband and I are doing the challenge together. We were really sore the first couple of workouts but we both agree on the efficiency. Also, it’s really fun and the journal keep the motivation up.
    Way to go Wii Active :)

    I’m on day 3 of the 30-day challenge and I am so sore! It’s a really good workout. I have sweat running down my face and neck by the end. Active is awesome!

  24. Redzinja

    Bought one yesterday for my wife and test it and I think we will be doing this together. 

  25. Directly after I wrote in I found that EA Active does, indeed, have a multiplayer function.
