Tell It Like It Is Tuesday: EA SPORTS Active

Oh YEAH! I was so completely PSYCHED when I got the chance to review the new cutting-edge fitness program for the Nintendo Wii.

EA SPORTS Active packs quite a punch into such a small box! Inside you’ll find: the game disc, leg band, resistance band, and hand straps.

It was easy enough to set up- basically you use the Wii remote connected to the nunchuck for the majority of the workouts. The nunchuck slides right into the leg band and its sensors collect data on your lower body movement! If you happen to have a Wii balance board, EA SPORTS Active also gives you the opportunity to incorporate it into your workout if you’d like to.
I have to say, I could not believe what a workout this game was! I have heard from others that it is intense- I was seriously sweating in about 6 minutes! Biker Bob & Lily Bean found it pretty entertaining. :p

EA SPORTS Active has so many fun features and activities to explore! After only a few times using it, I had gone for several runs, kickboxed, done squats & bicep curls… plus a whole bunch of other stuff!

One of my favorite features is the 30 Day Challenge. You can actually have this game record and track your progress over 30 days- it offers a custom workout just for you over the duration!

The best part is, I have only just tapped into everything that this game has to offer! “Dancing, inline skating, tennis and volleyball are just a few of the more than 25 exercises and activities that combine fitness and fun in an EA SPORTS Active workout. This is the kind of game that your entire family will enjoy and benefit from!”

I can’t WAIT to explore EA SPORTS Active more and continue on with my own 30 day challenge!

Want your own copy of EA SPORTS Active? You can purchase this game at stores all over the place (Walmart, Target, Best Buy, etc.). The average selling price is $59.95. You can save a few dollars by taking advantage of the special promo in the EA STORE- it’s on sale for $52.99.

Yep, Lily Bean wanted to give EA SPORTS Active a go as well! I told her that as soon as she starts walking without hanging on to furniture, she’s got a deal! :)

EA SPORTS provided me with the product reviewed above free of charge. I was not paid or compensated in any way for this review, besides receiving free product.
