Daisy Fuentes Pilates Review

Pilates can be a fun and enjoyable way to exercise and get healthy. The idea of pilates is to lengthen and tone your muscles, not just burn calories. Pilates has many benefits that you just can’t receive from a normal, fast paced, cardio exercise. The joy of pilates comes to the Wii for the first time with Daisy Fuentes Pilates video game.

How Does Daisy Fuentes Pilates Work?

The video game is pretty straight forward. Daisy Fuentes, animated as an avatar, guided me through a variation of pilates routines. Each routine has a varying number of reps with varying difficulties. My progress is tracked in five day blocks, or completion of exercises. Routines are either kicked off by a preset, random, or custom chosen routines.

The more arrows that are hit in a series, the higher the combo rating and the more points are received.

EA Sports Active 2 Review

Electronic Entertainments has an answer to that with it’s EA Sports Active 2 fitness oriented game for the Nintendo Wii console.

Walk It Out by Konami Review: A Fitness Game for Wii

I always found the thought of walking in one place in order to burn calories to be rather boring, and I preferred having a destination or to walk on a treadmill with a TV on to keep my mind busy.

Walk It Out makes walking off those calories fun and engaging so that you will not realize the time flying by.

How Does Walk It Out Work?

Walk It Out is a game on the Wii platform that is designed to make walking a fun activity. It motivates users to become physically active while providing them with an inviting and entertaining gameworld. Walk It Out attempts to engage players in activities that take their minds off of the fact that they are exercising. What I find so hard about exercising is the lack of stimulation; more so than the feeling of being tired or challenged. This game addresses exactly that common boredom people have with exercise and engages them in a variety of available mini games, including DDR (DanceDance Revolution).
