Buy at a discount

Fitness Ultimatum 2010 is an exercise based game that allowed me to achieve certain desired fitness goals. The game offers a couple of varieties of play to help keep up motivation. A 60 day challenge is offered to push myself to the extreme and track my progress. A single exercise and circuit option are convenient for the on the go individual with little time. These selections allow for a single exercise, or a quick routine, to be performed on the fly.

Fitness Ultimatum tracks my movements with the Wii controllers to ensure proper form. Each rep and movement is monitored and tracked by the game. If proper form or reps aren't being adhered to, Jillian will correct me on the fly.

Options are present to view my overall progress during game play. I am able to view my progress and history from the start of using the game to current. This helped me to best understand where I stand in my fitness goals, and offered a sense of pride for completing what I have accomplished.

What Are Others Saying?

Fitness Ultimatum 2010 does work. There isn’t much of a question about it. Every person that sticks with the program will drop weight and become healthier. The exercise programs are intense in the style of Jillian Machaels. Fast paced movements and a constant workouts burn calories. Jamie I. Petit explained that it was hard for her to slack off playing this game.

For fans of Jillian Michaels this may be a great option as noted by various users. For others, there may be better options on the Wii.

How Much Weight Will I lose?

Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 is a high impact cardio game. As with any gym workouts, weight loss can not be guaranteed. With this being such a high impact game though, you’re sure to see results, but mileage may vary. A user by the alias Dancing 2 uses this game during her off season to keep in shape and toned.

Side Effects

Unlike prescription pills, there is never any real side effect with physical regimens. I would recommend checking with a doctor to ensure that you are healthy enough for strenuous physical exercise. Improper form or overexertion can lead to physical injury if not careful.

Problems And Complaints

As Donna Smeall says, this game is not for beginners. The workouts are intense. I had trouble keeping up with the routines with first use. Often, I found myself taking breaks. For example, Jillian asked me to perform 60 sit ups at one time. Starting this game I wasn’t able to do twenty.

Fitness Ultimatum tries to track your movements with the Wii remote and Wii Balance Board. On occasion I found tracking frustrating at best. Fitness Ultimatum would not properly track my movements and form, causing extra reps and Jillian to start yelling to get moving again.

My last complaint is the lack of exercises. There are plenty of moves to keep a routine going. But the lack and repetition of exercises makes this game more of an exercise video then an interactive game. The same routine is usually performed, unlike other games that have a large assortment to keep things fresh. This path makes sense with Jillian’s high impact approach to straight calorie burning, but it does get boring.

Did You Know?

Jillian Michaels helped make this game from the ground up. There are 17 exercises in this game, and Jillian hand picked each of them for their impact and intensity. All the animations of her in the game are motion captured from Jillian actually performing the exercises. Even the locations and scenery were chosen by her. Jillian Michaels wanted a heavy hand in the design and motion of the game.

How Does Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010 Rate Overall?

Buy at a discount

Fitness Ultimatum is reasonably priced. The price point lays somewhere in between what an instructional fitness video and a video game would be. This game essentially is a slightly interactive instructional video more then a game.

Exercises are very high impact, but very limited. The approach taken is a high calorie burning path rather then a targeted fitness approach. This got my heart beating and my head sweating, but eventually became rather boring with the limited exercises.

I would only recommend this game as an add on to your normal routine or something to mix things up once in a while. There are better programs out there that include a more targeted approach with more routines to keep things fun and exciting.
