ExerBeat Review

Reading the manufacturer’s enticing opening line product description -“Ever used the following excuse: “I’m too busy to go to the gym!”- I knew this Wii game has been designed with people like me in mind! I actually DO have a gym membership but I hardly use it because there is always something more pressing to do: cook dinner, take my little one to a play area, and watch a programme on T.V..... Anyway, I also dread looking at over toned women lifting huge weights in the gym and feel rather inadequate when my two sets of 12 lunges leave me exhausted. So I much prefer the option of working out from home where its only the virtual trainer who can have a go at my fitness level!

For whom has ExerBeat been manufactured?

Wii Just Dance Review

Dancing is an awesome cardio exercise.  Professional dancers always look amazing.  The art and grace of dancing is wonderful.  It’s a skill I have always wanted to learn but have been to afraid to try in public. 

That is until UbiSoft released Just Dance.  It may not be professional dancing taught by a real life instructor, but it gets me up and moving while enjoying some nice rhythms.

How Does Just Dance Work?

Just Dance is a flat out video game in the same style as Dance Dance revolution or Guitar Hero.  The premise is simple; as music plays the player must match certain rhythmic motions with certain points on the screen.  Motions are captured with the Wii remote.

But there is dancing involved. Lots of dancing. The idea of the game is to dance my way through each song to obtain the highest score.  And this dancing makes for the perfect weight loss game play.  And dancing provides an excellent cardio workout.  It’s a win-win deal that combines lots of fun and lots of exercise.

The Biggest Loser inspired the world to start losing weight. Starting as a reality TV series, the hosts helped multiple contestants with severe weight problems achieve their goals and drop those pounds to live a much better life. The Biggest Loser went past just physical fitness.

The idea was a complete lifestyle change. Even contestants that were voted off the show kept dropping weight because of the mantra that was taught during their visit. That experience is now brought home with The Biggest Loser Challenge for the Nintendo Wii.
