I've been using my Wii for a daily home workout for many years. But after progressing from Wii Fit, to Wii Fit Plus, to EA Sports Active and finally to EA Sports Active 2, it's time for a change.

I've done the "hard" 90 day workout on EA Sports Active 2 over and over, and I'm getting bored. Added to that, the movement detectors are starting to fail. Well, its either broken, or I'm a zombie, as my heart rate has been zero for the last 3 months!

Using the Wii, I've lost weight, toned-up and improved my cardio fitness. It has served me well, but I'll be happy to buy whatever platform supports the best replacement fitness "game". Compared to gym membership, buying any consul is a bargain.

I'm at my target weight now, so I'm looking for toning and cario fitness more than weight loss.

Any recommendations?

I have been using the Free Step mode on Wii Fit for 1 hour (nearly) every night for the past month and have lost just under a stone, you just keep moving to the beat on the Wii remote and watch TV, Netflix or whatever. I am amazed at how effective it has been for me.

I don't know of any other fitness games but thought I would share my experience. My advice, get out an your bike.

Sports active 2 is good fun.

Gym is the best thing or running outside

Thanks!

Yes, free step is good. You burn lots of energy but it doesn't really get the heart rate up or exercise your abs. I used to do that a lot when I first got the Wii.

EA Sports Active 2 is the best I've found, with a wide variety of exercises for arms, legs, tummy and cardio.

I guess there is nothing newer or better out.

You can't visit the gym in 30 minutes between waking up and having a shower. Running outside in the winter, no thanks.

I'm hoping that someone like Les Paul etc will hook up with a developer and get their finger out and make use out of the kinect 2.0.

I reckon it could be reasonably popular.
