Wii fit not hard enough or simply not burn enough calories? then grab this! it is honestly a very good work out and me am my parents find it far easier to stick to than one of those DVD sets like Hip Hop Abs. Also it is noteworthy that the balance board allows more from this game but is in no way required.It has a Journal the tracks progress and helps keep you motivated, it even has a little quiz for nutrition. It is very easy to use any one can do it gamer or not. it doe have some flaws that are easily fixed.1. The resistance band is very low resistance but that is nothing weighted gloves or even free weights you can buy at any sport store can not fix.2. it doe not track weight. But the Wii does have a Wii fit channel for free even for people that do not have wii fit and i does track weight progress to get this connect you wii to the internet and download the channel under "channels"
