Top customer reviews
What I love most about Biggest Loser is that it feels like an actual guided fitness program. Wii Fit and Your Shape have a lot of exercises, but no structure or guidance as to which to do, when, or why. Even though it isn't intuitive to figure out on BL:UW, I've designed a 3x/week program geared to my current fitness level. There is even a calendar showing me my upcoming schedule, and what I'll be doing (20 minutes circuit training, cardio boxing, yoga, etc). I really like this because it is a structure I can simply follow.
The first day of each week is scheduled as a "challenge" day and weigh-in. The challenges are short fitness activities that are set up to look like you're playing against other contestants. They're basically just one-off exercises with an added element of 'gameplay.' There's a leaderboard, scores, etc. The weigh-in is also designed like the TV show; you step forward onto the "scale" so Allison can show you your weight. (Of course, since you must weigh yourself and enter your own weight, it's not much of a reveal.) Still, a nice way to end/begin the week, and I look forward to seeing progress during my upcoming weigh-ins.
I use Bob as my trainer, because he will not yell at me. The exercises feel right for my fitness ability -- unlike the Your Shape cardio stuff, which I could often do only 15 minutes before having to stop and get zero credit for the session. Bob's exercises get my heart rate up where it should be, but are not too intense for me to keep up.
The guidance/suggestions from Bob are usually very accurate. But there are two sources of feedback in the game -- your trainer, and the system itself. Frequently (and often humorously), Bob and the system completely contradict each other. "Don't step too wide, we don't want to stress the knees," Bob will say as onscreen it's chirping and flashing bright red STEP WIDER. This happens a lot; I just try to hit the middle ground.
STUFF I REALLY LIKE
WORKOUT PREFERENCES/OPTIONS. For your fitness program, you can set options like degree of difficulty, workout length, etc. I love this. By contrast, your Shape's "LOSE IT" workout (which is paid DLC) had just one intensity level (high) and one length (30 minutes).
THE WORKOUT DESIGN & TIMER. I love the structure of the workouts: warm up, exercises, stretch/cool down. There's a "ruler" that shows your progress, with markers where you'll finish a "station" and get a break for water. A green bar shows your progress as you go. It helps to be able to look up and see that I'm halfway to the next station, or almost to the cool down. There's also a nice pie-chart timer for each exercise. Again, I like the motivation of knowing I'm halfway done or almost there.
THE "HOW ARE YOU DOING" QUESTIONS. Periodically, Bob will ask how I'm doing, and three response options will appear onscreen. It listens for your answer (so you don't have to stop moving). You can say things like "I'm keeping up," or "This is too hard," and Bob will adjust accordingly. You can also stop for water mid-workout if you need to, which wasn't an option in Your Shape.
Something that's funny but also not: sometimes Bob asks if you need water, and the appropriate onscreen response is "I need a drink." But for me, the system usually doesn't recognize that particular phrase. So our exchanges go like this: "I need a drink." [nothing] "I NEED A DRINK." [nothing] "I NEED A DRINK!!" Bob: "Okay, we'll keep going, but be sure to stay hydrated during your workout."
ADDITIONAL WORKOUTS. You can do additional workouts outside your program. They aren't counted toward your program, but it's a nice way to get in some more exercise.
STUFF I WISH WAS BETTER
CONTROLS. The reviews are right; the control system is generally awful. The cursor is hard to control and has a lot of inertia. It's a very difficult system to navigate.
INSTRUCTIONS/DIRECTIONS. I really wish there was a clear, simple guide to using this program. The menus aren't intuitive, and the interface is confusing at times. But once you figure things out, the program can be really satisfying.
In general, I'm not trying to play this game as if I was on The Biggest Loser on TV. I'm simply using it as an interactive guided workout, and for that I feel it's extremely good. With Your Shape, I dreaded the workout sessions because they were so intense, and if you can't finish you get zero credit toward your "program." But in Biggest Loser, the custom workout options and the onscreen feedback (timer/progress) make for a much better workout. I don't know what my ultimate results will be, but this is a fitness program I'm able to stick with.
What bothers me is the "appearance" of the people/avatars that they use to represent you. It is not accurate on your body mass appearance. Normally I would not care, but if you are going to make a program show you as severely obese then slowly reduce the weight on the avatar to represent your weight loss, at least make it reflect, even in a small amount, what you actually are. Yes I am overweight, but I can see my toes without an issue. My avatar is so huge it couldnt tie it's own shoes let alone see below his nipples. Yes it is a game, but that is just a poor process. My wife played once and refuses to again, because as a slightly overweight person she is displayed as morbidly obese....she was insulted and discouraged by this.
I have so much energy and am stronger than I ever thought I would be. This uses every muscle and really tones every part of your body.
For the person that said this workout wasn't very hard - try upping the levels and the amount of time you do it. I am now in a very healthy weight range and do this program 3-6 days a week for 45 minutes. I always work up a sweat and get my heart beating in a cardio pattern within the first 5-10 minutes. In the 45 minutes I easily burn 300-350 calories.
It has weekly weigh-ins to keep you on track towards your weight loss goal and even has recipes and other workouts you can do. There's everything from kickboxing to yoga to circuit training which is what I always do. I like working every part of my body and even when the circuit is very difficult - you only do it for a minute or so so you can make it through it! I love seeing the progress I made on circuits that used to be extremely hard and now I can go harder and longer.
There are a few specific exercises that no matter how I do it it doesn't recognize that I'm doing it right - roundhouse series is one of these. Overall though, it's not a big problem because it's only 1 or 2 per work out.
I recommend this for anyone who is looking to lose weight and really tone up. I LOVE THIS PRODUCT!!
