I broke out our Wii the other day and my boyfriend and I played some Wii tennis and bowling. While Wii Sports can be fun, they don’t provide as fun or as active of a workout as Wii’s The Biggest Loser does. For fans of the Show, you may be familiar with some of the trainers and advice. However, the game itself looks like a lot more fun than the standard Wii Fit or Wii Fit Plus workouts. To check out the video of the same showing some of the exercises and visuals, go to the Amazon webpage and click on the video. The game is available from Amazon. com for about $15.00. Click here to order from Amazon.

For a sample of one of the workouts in its entirety, nutwiisystem made this excellent video.  Check it out and you will get a realistic idea of what the Biggest Loser game offers you:

Here’s what you get with the program (from the Amazon website):

Note: You will need to purchase or own a Wii Balance Board to use this game.

  •  A daily calendar for day planning and 50 healthy recipes from The Biggest Loser Cookbook.
  • A complete workout containing over 88 exercises, including upper and lower body, core, cardio and yoga.
  • Option of a 4, 8 or 12 week program with avatars of contestants from the prior seasons of The Biggest Loser.
  • Multiplayer functionality allows you to train with a friend and compete in weekly challenges.
  • The game includes four tools to reach your fitness goals:
