Okay – I promise no more “wii” puns for a while.
The 30 day challenge I undertook with the Wii EA Active Sport Personal Trainer is over, or at least if would have been, if I had managed to complete all 20 workouts which I should have managed to do by now.
Confession – I have not been as disciplined about following the program – but this is a real, honest review, so I am being really honest!
- varied program
- Options to add extra activities (tennis, volleyball, baseball etc)
- you can do it when it suits you
- also encourages healthy eating, drinking water and getting enough sleep!
- my kids loved it too, especially the running track
- I can definitely see an improvement in my fitness level, and it definitely got me more active than I would have been without it.
- the encouraging voice gets a bit repetitive – wish there was the option to turn that bit off.
- Wii sensor did not always recognise your movements, sometimes you needed to repeat a move several times for it to register.
- handles on the resistance band became uncomfortable for me.
Would I do it again? – Yes
Would I stick at it better next time? I hope so!
I plan to continue using the Wii EA Active Sport Personal Trainer, especially for those times when exercising outside the home is not an option.
If you too have the Wii EA Active Sport Personal Trainer, or have been tempted to get it I would love to hear your thoughts.
In other happenings, I was so keen to start my jewellery design course at the local college that I arrived today ONE WEEK early! – I felt a right eejit!!
So instead I spent the morning in bathroom showrooms gathering advice and brochures for my modern contemporay white bathroom. Hopefully it will not remain just a dream in my head, but like my kitchen makeover, will soon become a reality. Of course I will share it all here on my blog (whether you want to know about it or not!)
Finally, could not resist sharing these photos of my son, who finally got to take his lunch box to school today.
He got to stay for two and a half hours (!) so need to bring a snack with him – a piece of fruit, a biscuit and a carton of juice. As he has watched his big sisters packing their lunch boxes for years, he was eager to pack his own.
Fortunately I decided just to check the contents before we left the house as not only did it contain fruit, biscuit and juice, but also an assortment of small toys! I persuaded him these were not as essential as he thought, and we managed to leave them at home.
