Get Active!

Isn't it most of our goals to get fit come the new year? Maybe shed a few pounds?
If you answered yes to either one of those questions, keep reading.
If you answered no, you can click out at any time and I'll never know! LOL!

First of all we were blessed enough to have my parents buy us a Wii for Christmas a couple years ago.
This past Christmas they bought my daughter the EA Sports Active Workout. (She's homeschooled and not much into group sports.) So this gave her an opportunity to get her heart pumping.
But before she could ever try it, I gave it a shot. (I'm funny like that!)
Let me tell you it was WONDERFUL! I go to the gym about 4x a week and am pretty "fit". But this thing had me sweating and sore the next day.
It has different levels of intensity and tons of variety.
Now if you don't already have a Wii I don't think you should go in debt over getting one but if you do and you can afford the EA Sports Active Workout and actually want something that will work you out, then this is for you.

On the down side I will say that I had to double up on the band when doing biceps and stuff but other than that, it was a wonderful workout and I think you can get a better band at Wal-Mart!
You can go here to read more about it.

If you already have this then let me know how you like it?
Let's eat right, exercise and be healthy!
I need you to be around to read my blog when I'm 80 and repeating myself and forgetting what day Friday Funnies is on! LOL!!



  1. Hey, cool! My kids got a wii for Christmas too... maybe it isn't totally worthless after all. I'll have to check this out. Thanks!

  2. Wow - I've heard great things about the EA Sports Active! I really should get it. Wii Fit Plus isn't quite the serious workout although it's good for me right now since I'm just trying to get back into the habit and I am burning calories.

    How fun! Too bad I don't live closer - you could "force" me to work out more - LOL! Big my-friend-Kim-is-taller-than-me-AND-stronger-than-me hugs to you! Have a wonderful day friend!! :)

  3. We have been having fun with wii fit but the hula hooping is getting a bit dull and my mii keeps mocking me when I miss a day! I wonder if she has ever heard of a little button on my remote called mute! Not that I'm bitter or anything. LOL Thanks for the tip. We may just have to try it!

  4. We have the wii too. I should try and get that. If it made you sore the next day...it might kill me. LOL

  5. No wii here! We've been going to the fitness center and back on our diets. We're trying to get into better shape when we got on our adventure trips later on this year!

  6. I have the EA active and love it. You are right that it does provide a great workout. I sweat, plus feel it later and the next day. I was thinking I may need to get a tighter resistance band because I have to double mine up and still think I could have a bit more resistance. Have a great day!!

  7. hmmm I was actually going to go buy the Biggest Loser for the WII today and now I am in a quandry....which one should I get??? I know the tension will kill you but I will have to just let you know when I do...

    Happy Monday....p.s. I hope you still blog when your 80! Your laughter is the best medicine for all of us :)

    Love you

  8. Kim,

    My kids absolutely love using their WII for working out. My youngest at 11 uses it just before heading out to school to warm up doing lunges before basketball practice since she has it first thing in the morning.

    I must say, it's the best kind of video game is one that makes them sweat and laugh at the same time.

    Be sure to stop by my blog today and sign up for my giveaway!

    Love and Hugs ~ Kat

  9. WE have the Wii Fit and Wii Fit plus. I have heard great things about Wii Active though. :D Is it a lot of upper body movement?


I really appreciate the time you take to leave a comment. Thank you!
