My Personal Review
I have to admit that when I heard others talk about the EA Sports Active Game and the 30-Day Challenge, I felt a bit intimidated. But then I decided that if I wanted to get the results I was looking for, then I have to be prepared for a challenge. It was not as bad as I imagined. I loved the personalized attention I received from my virtual trainer. I was very impressed with the versatility in the workout. I am a person who craves new things and new ideas. In other words, I can get bored pretty easily. The workout was set up perfectly to suit me.
It did take some getting used to. I used the Wii Version, which requires the Nunchuck and the Wii Remote. What's also great is that there are workouts that are tailored for use with the
Wii Fit Board. I can say that my muscles are feeling the workout and that's a good thing. I can tell they are being challenged. So this program gets **** stars from me. I gave it four stars, because all things can stand some improvement. One thing I would suggest is to add a warmup session. This was not included. Next, I would like to add some suggested tips:
- Before starting this program, make sure you get the green light from your physician
- Warm up before and after completing your workout
- Drink plenty of water
- Don't overexert yourself. Stop your workout if you feel strain or pain.
- Breathe regularly throughout your workout. Holding your breath can cause your blood pressure to elevate and possible fainting
- Envision yourself in your new body. Think about what you want to change and set goals.
- Schedule it. Having trouble keeping up with your workouts? EA Sports Active gives you a calendar so that you can keep track of the days you are scheduled to workout. Put it in your PDA or jot it on your calendar.
- Have fun. Don't look at this as a chore. Think of it as doing something for you; something rewarding and something good. Think this way and you will soon reach your goals.
