EA Sports Active 2

Anyone else get this game yet? I got mine as a present for Christmas and finally dug it out and hooked it up last night. I've only played Wii Fit, not any of the more intense workout games, so this was quite an experience!

I created my character, started on the nine week plan for general fitness, and did my first workout. And nearly died. It was great! Unlike the Wii Fit, I wasn't just bumming around menu screens picking workouts I wanted to do. I chose a trainer and he guided the experience. I didn't even need the wiimote for a lot of the activities. There was stretching, cardio, strength training with the resistance bands and body weight, and fun hybrid activities, like basketball and mountain biking, which is my favorite. I don't know if the original EA Sports Active had this, but I'm in love with it. While your character rides a mountain bike on screen, you squat  to accellerate when going downhill, jump when riding over certain ramps to do tricks, and when going uphill, you run in place. It's fun and evil, which is pretty perfect in a workout game, and it broke up the more traditional workouts. Needless to say, I'm SORE. And excited to keep up with this thing.

I've also taken the liberty of setting up a workout group for members of this community who want to work out together. The name of the group is LJActive and the password is wiifit. My boyfriend and I are in the group as of about an hour ago, and we'd love to compete against and keep track of our progress with others from this community. Please join!

I don't have it but you make it sound interesting enough that I might look into it.
Very cool! It's been a lot of fun so far. Since my original post I've done one 15 minute cardio workout and am in my workout clothes about to have another go at it, this time creating my own workout, not just a trainer-generated one.

The fitness campus is set in this pretty desert area, and it keeps making me want to watch old seasons of The Biggest Loser to keep my momentum and motivation up. That wasn't related to anything, I just wanted to share. ^_^
