Review - EA Sports Active 2 for XBOX 360 Kinect

EA Sports Active 2
About a month ago I got the opportunity to review the EA Sports Active 2 for XBOX 360 Kinect. I will say upfront that I LOVE this game. I have tried demos for other games on the XBOX 360 platform including The Biggest Loser, and none really sparked my interest. The lack of interest is minor compared to their lack a heart rate monitor, which the EA Sports Active includes.  It also has an online community and groups to join in the game to keep you motivated, competition is a great motivator after all :)

Student Saving Bucks EA Sports Active 2 Heart Monitor
The EA Sports Active 2 game includes the resistive band and the wireless heart rate monitor along with the game and retails for around $40 at major stores like Target or Best Buy. The versions for the Wii and PS3 include extra sensors, but the XBOX 360 seems like it is the best system to get this game for. The Kinect sensor truly tracks your movements effortlessly. I have read mostly great review for this game, the negative ones go on about the sensor not being able to pick up movement. Now, I will say that I've had this problem too but it was my fault. I had the Kinect sensor placed badly and as soon as I moved it i did a quick reconfiguration that takes less than 3min. and everything worked fine afterwords. I love the Heart Rate Monitor thats included in the bundle. It is wireless, you just strap it on your left arm and turn it on. It is fully integrated into the game and allows a more accurate count of calories you are burning. It includes the batteries and mine died right after earning my achievement for 13 hours of exercise.

The graphics in the game are not bad, you can customize yourself in the game and as you move, your movements can be seen by you alternate self in the game. I do wish there was more upbeat music in the game, even though I love hearing my trainer tell me to push harder and that I can do it. There are over 70 exercises to choose from, including aerobic workouts, athletic training, and muscle-toning exercise. You can chose to do trainer-generated workouts or make your own. I find myself doing the activities more than any other exercise. I enjoy the boxing, soccer striker and outrunning exercises the most, they really make you sweat! I work out with the Active 2 everyday for a minimum of 30min and burn a minimum of 500 calories. When I started the game I couldn't do more than 5-10 minutes but over the month and daily exercise I have more stamina and enjoy it too.

As of today, I have used the Active 2 daily and have exercised over 14 hours, ran a distance of 13.67 miles, hit 5,080 boxing targets and burned 15,546 calories (the equivalent of 4.1 lbs.) in a little over a month. How do I know all of this detailed information? The game tracks is but I go to www.easportsactiveonline.com to track it online. This game paired with eating better on my Nutrisystem program has been work, but great. So far, combining the exercise with the Active 2 and Nutrisystem I have lost a little over 16 lbs. in 5 weeks. I wish I had an extra copy to give away to you guys but I don't :( This is one game I HIGHLY recommend and give it 5/5 stars! If your true to the game and push yourself you will lose, and sometimes losing is a great thing!

My Nutrisystem Weekly Weigh-In (Week #5)

This is my second month on Nutrisystem. I'm only a week down in my second month but feel I have adapted well. I am over 10lbs. down and while there is no big physical change, I do feel it. I love that I am adapting well and am able to successfully flex my meals. This is where I make m y own food and figure out my own portions for a meal instead of eating a Nutrisystem entree. I highly suggest everyone do this because Nutrisystem, to me, is a stepping stone and when you no longer can have it you will be on your own. Nutrisystem is teaching me that I CAN be full and full of energy without stuffing myself with food. I notice as time goes by, I don't find myself craving a HUGE portion of rice, i barely finish 2/3 cups worth. It honestly feels as if my stomach is shrinking, and I'm not sure if thats possible as you eat less. With all my food and add-ins (especially my bananas) I feel full for a good 3-4 hours, or until my next meal. I have also learned that instead of eating a protein serving for breakfast helps me not feel hungry the rest of the day. I no longer can just have a dairy serving, it doesn't satisfy my body, I guess breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day for me.

As I mentioned, I don't see the physical changes much (I regret not taking measurements before starting the Nutrisystem program) but I do feel it. I can run longer, and while doing my exercise with the EA Sports Active 2 game for my XBOX 360 Kinect, I can exercise a lot longer than when I started using it a month ago. I feel great inside, I crave more works out now and actually look forward to doing it! 

This weeks weight-loss was not what I wanted but ANYTHING lost and not gained is a victory for me.  I can't wait to keep pushing myself and lose more weight. I have now made a personal goal to lose a minimum of 10lbs. a month over the next 3 months I have left. :) I'm exited that I have rightfully earned my 1st Nutribear on my 3rd week and am awaiting his arrival! Don't forget to Check out my entire Nutrisystem Journey and photos on Flickr or videos on YouTube! Now its time, my weight loss for the 5th week on Nutrisystem:
