- Release Date
EA Sports Active is a game similar to Wii Fit that aims at providing the player with a fun way to workout. You start the game out by creating your own fitness profile by choosing things like your gender, weight, height, and then the appearance of your character that you will see onscreen. The game provides you with a fitness journal that aims to
keep you on track of your goals, such as recording your diet and
daily activities. Aside from the main mode, there is also the 30 day challenge mode (explained below). The game lets you pick from its preset workouts or you can custom create your own workouts by selecting individual exercises and editing their difficulty to create a whole routine.
The box comes with two exercising accessories that enhance the experience of the game. The leg strap has a pocket that holds the Wii Nunchuk controller to use in lower body exercises to sense your movements. It also comes with a resistance band to raise the physical intensity of the exercises. The Wii balance board is also supported but is in no way necessary.
EA Sports Active has over 20 different exercises. There are 3 main types of exercises: Cardio, upper body, and lower body.
