Jul 16, 2014If you really want a decent workout instead of a quirky mini-game experience (ahem...Wii Fit U), then Your Shape: Fitness Now is really the only game in the Wii U library that will fit the bill. I don't play it much, but my 60-year old mom does and she has lost 10 pounds in 1 month! Of course she has also been watching her diet and all, but this game has played a big part in her slimming down.

Seriously, who cares if the wiimote doesn't work perfectly in sync with the game like other games? I think that's really missing the point. The point of the game is fitness, and this is way better than the alternative of watching an aerobic video with no interactive element. I think of this game as a programmable workout/aerobic exercise video/trainer that not only creates workout regimens for you but also tracks your progress.

But if you're looking for something new to keep you exercising give this title a try.… Expand
