Sports Active Comes Alive Next Week

EA’s latest sport activity game for the Wii being released next Thursday

EA Sports Active, to be released in Australia soon, is claimed to offer an innovative new customisable and personalised fitness regime that will be available for the Nintendo Wii console.

EA says it is designed specifically for women seeking a simple, fun and cost-effective way to achieve a healthy lifestyle.

Activities are combined into a circuit that target both the upper and lower body as well as cardio, and supports two players to allow family or friends to get fit together. It provides real-time feedback on a workout such as calories burned, while also allowing users to adjust inten

sity levels.

EA Sports Active ships with two specially designed leg straps that hold the Wii’s Nunchuk controller to track lower body movements, as well as a resistance band to support a number of upper body strength training exercises.

It also features a 30 Day Challenge, a fitness road map for players to reach their fitness goals with the guidance of a virtual trainer. The Challenge provides a 20-minute workout every time a player exercises, including instruction, feedback on technique and positive encouragement throughout the workout. Each circuit will feel different and increase in intensity as fitness levels improve to help people work up a sweat and work toward their fitness goals.

Users can create their own custom workouts that vary in activity, duration and intensity, and the Wii Balance Board will add functionality to many exercises.
