Everything is changing these days and the digital world is taking over. Have you ever played video games? Well, most video games in the past have required very little or no physical activity. But now, digital workout games are becoming far more popular than actually working out itself.
The latest video craze is thanks to the Wii and complimentary games like Wii Fit and EA Sports Active. These “exergames” have made fitness enjoyable by allowing physical activity to be fun, challenging, and adventurous. These fitness video games are great for improving eye-hand coordination, balance, stability, and stamina; all of which you can do at the gym as well. (more…)

On April 3, 2009, I began a journey to change my life. In California to meet with EA SPORTS officials about the then soon-to-be released EA SPORTS Active, I made a commitment to my wife, Kari, and our kids, and the world, that I was going to change my lifestyle.
At the time, I weighed a staggering 369.78 lbs. That was too much. Way too much.
It’s now June 19, 2009, and I weighed in this morning at 340.65 pounds. I’m almost down 30 pounds in two and a half months and I’m still dropping. I’ve done one EA SPORTS Active 30-day challenge and I’m now doing a second. (more…)
UPDATE: Congratulations to MyDIR user Hillsa. He logged in to MyDIR using Facebook Connect and won the EA Sports Active.
Last month the new EA Sports Active was released. It’s a revolutionary new fitness game for the Wii that came with much hype. We finally got a chance to try it for ourselves, and have to say we’re quite pleased with the results.
We found the EA Sports Active to be superior to its Wii fitness competitors because it seamlessly mimicked our movements, set-up was simple, and by the end we felt like we’d completed a legitimate workout. Sweat, shortness of breath and all!
Watch our demo now, and then learn how you can get the EA Sports Active for yourself!
We recently had the pleasure of joining EA for their Sports Active media event in New York City. The event started with a demo of the EA Sports Active game/workout product. Following the demo they allowed attendees to play the units and experience the workout intensity. The workouts require the use of an occasional resistance band and the leg strap for the Wii controller, which are included with purchase. If you have purchased the Wii Fit, you can also use your balance board for a number of the workouts. The balance board, although, is not required for any of the EA Sports Active workouts. (more…)
