Advantages: Great workout in a short time
Disadvantages: None so far
I brought this item after using the original on the wii. However we have brought an xbox 360 and kinect now, so hoped this would work better now. It does.
It comes complete with a heart rate monitor which you wear on your left arm and this tracks how fast your pulse is during the workout, letting you know how hard you are working in line with how hard you should be working. There is also a calorie counter on the screen letting you know how many calories you have burnt off.
No more holding remotes in your hands while trying to do squats/lunges run etc. No more leg band falling down halfway through an exercise...bliss.
When you first begin you have to make your character, which is relatively easy and fun to do.Then you have to enter your weight, which is a shock if you have just had another baby like me. I would recommend using the standard controller for this section. Then you can sign up for either the 9 week program or the 6 week cardio blast. I chose the 9 week programme.
The first workout for me consisted of kick ups, high knees, lunges, squats, dodgeball and mountain biking. If I remember correctly. They were all easy to perform and were quite good fun as well.
As you progress through the programme the workouts get progressively harder and boy do you notice, my nemesis is the mountain biking, it is basically a series of squats and jumps which make your legs burn something rotton. However you can defiantely feel it working.
Every workout also begins with a warm up and ends with a cool down and they all tell you how far you are through your workout which is daunting at first then comforting when you are getting tired.
I much prefer this version of the product as I can choose which weights to use instead of being restricted to the included resistance band which I always found more of a hinderance than a help.
I have definately noticed a difference using this programme, combined with a healthy diet the weight is definately coming off. Easy to fit around the kids and fun too. PLus it is a lot cheaper than a gym membership.
Highly recommended to anyone trying to shed the pounds before summer arrives
Summary: Highly recommended to lose those pounds before summer
