What It Is

What It Is

We all have our excuses for not working out. They usually start off with, “I can’t work out because...” and they often end with, “I don’t have time”, “gym memberships are too expensive”, “my home is too small for workout equipment”, “I’m too busy reviewing video games to workout”. Unfortunately (for us excuse-makers), EA’s Active Personal Trainer answers everyone of those “I cant’s” with a yes-you-can attitude and your own, private personal trainer.

Active Personal Trainer is a collection of cardio and resistance workouts that utilize the Wii’s motion-sensing controllers to encourage you to get up and workout. The workouts include jogging and running in place, squats, lunges, bicep and triceps curls, punching bag exercises and more. In each workout, you hold or attach the Wii-Remote and Nunchuk controller to your body and the on-screen personal trainer instructs, guides and coaches you through the workout.
