I know her game is kinda glitchy and uses the wii balance board that comes with the Wii Fit
Wouldn't recommend it? You can buy the board separately right?

You get the wii fit game with the board for $90. Honestly, the reviews on the Jillian game are BAD. That is why I will not be buying it. Honestly if you want a killer workout for the Wii (even though Wii Fit can be heart pumping if done right), I'd wait till May. There is a game from EA Sports that will use the balance board, Wii, and a new gizmo that does the workout with you. The previews look great for this game. I am so going to buy it.

Although, make your own decision by looking at amazon reviews on the Jillian Wii game and on 3FC. ^_^

My Fitness Coach is a good workout for the wii..... and it doesn't use the board.

And yeah Im really looking forward to the EA game....to me it looks sort of like a mixture of the good parts of Wii Fit and My Fitness Coach rolled into one. Can hardly wait....

Don't believe the reviews for her wii game. You have to work hard to get it going, which is what exercise is all about right? Once you figure it out, it's an awesome game. I was sore for 2 days the first time I used it.

Oh, I know. I cannot wait. I think that is why I haven't bought My Fitness Coach.

Whats the EA game? I am wondering if thats the thing they had at gamestop that they said was coming out in May and you could use it with the Wii Fit. They said I could pre order it for $5 but I wanted to find out more about it.
Any reviews on the Wii My Fitness Coach? I wanted that but didnt get it yet. I did hear the Wii Jillian game had bad reviews so I didnt get it.

Here is the website:

It does use the board but I don't think you will have to have it.

If I could have returned this game, I would have. I don't like it. I think that the My Fitness Coach is a much better deal.

I don't personally have the game but from the look of the previews and you really think about it, I don't think Jillian's game is necessarily designed to be the hardest kick butt workout out there. I think it's more aimed at getting people up and moving more than before and giving kids another option of playing a game that is a little more physical and using their own body rather than sitting on their butts and using a controller. But that's just my opinion.

Back to the original question..I don't know if it was ever answered..but Jillian's birthday is February 18th and Bob's is August 18th...which makes it easy for me to remember...duh, I have these senior moments.

The JM workout game for the Wii is HARD! But I like it. You really just have to actually put forth a LOT of effort. It made me sweat, for sure. But JM is my inspiration.

Jillian Michaels is the best! I just recently joined her online program on her official site and I'd recommend it to anyone who isn't part of it yet. For the last year or so I have been using her dvds, reading her books, listening to her radio show and watching her on TBL. I have gone from 320-ish to 176. I'm not at my goal yet, but still moving in the right direction. I am believing I can do this now, even if I slip up here and there. I am doing the work, but she is a constant source of motivation and I'm so thankful for her!
