If you’ve spent any time at all on twitter in the past weeks, you couldn’t help but notice the tweets about EA Sports Active and the 30-Day Challengers. It is a new wii game from EA Sports.
From the moment I heard about the game, I. Had. To. Have. It. To find out how I got EA Sports Active AND why I am a nut when it comes to getting the thing that many would consider unattainable, read this: Got EA Sports Active
My obsessive compulsive-ness garnered me 3 copies of the game. No, that’s not a typo. I got one to keep, one to give away at a house party (post to follow), and one to give away to a lucky reader of mine. It could be you!
I’m hosting a giveaway for a brand spanking new game on my newly redesigned site. Still have a few tweaks to do here and there with the redesign, but I sigh sweetly when I log on to this site. If you are here for the first time I hope you come back and visit. I’ll have more giveaways to come in the next few weeks.
But, back to EA Sports Active… I love this game and it is not because I got a free copy. Nope. I love this game because I sweat buckets when I work out. I’ve been doing the treadmill/elliptical/rowing machine thing for months if not two years at my local health club and I never sweat like this. I’m talking sweating through a t-shirt sweat.
The workout is something I have never done before. Well, to be honest I did buy a Kathy Smith video (have I mentioned that I am an old fogey mom?) from Borders when my oldest was a baby in an attempt to lose baby weight. The concept was a good one, but the reality was that the TV was either off OR on Sesame Street and the Teletubbies. I just never got around to exercising at home until now.
EA Sports Active is a wii game where you customize your character. You can participate in various exercises guided by an on-screen trainer — a guy or girl of your choice. I chose a girl trainer. She is very supportive and encouraging. My fave activities — in-line skating, kickboxing, and running. There is a 30-day challenge workout, which I tried for about a week, but I prefer to pick the exercises that I know I will do rather than half-heartedly do a workout routine.

I’m a walker! (I’m off to tweet now!)
Um, running while being chased? Bending over to pick up the candy I dropped? What I’m trying to say is that I need this game!

My favorite form of exercise is walking but since I need to lose weight, jumping around, running/walking does the trick much better. This would be very exciting to win!
I tweeted about the contest…
Does drinking coffee count as exercise? No. Shoot. Okay, I really enjoy (did I just say that?) my Wii Fit and would love to try the EA Sports Active!
Thanks for the great giveaway!!!

I love kickboxing! And I would love to try out the EAS because it’s difficult to get out of the house with all 3 kids.
I totally love the eliptical machine at the gym. I don’t have a ton of time to devote to working out and 30 min on that thing makes me sweat!

My favorite all time exercise is Pilates..oh my holy soreness, but it sculpted my body in no time. Have found a great place to start it again, so I can’t wait, but with the kids and time issues, the this game would be a great way for me to participate WITH my kids.
I am loving my Flexxation DVD by Amy Cheryl.
My favorite exercise is dancing or something equally entertaining. I hate being bored.

swimming or biking – i never understood running though – that was always punishment for making a mistake in other sports…

I’ve been exercising with Wii Fit for several weeks and love it but really want EA Active. My favorite exercise is running, but I can no longer run outdoors thanks to knee problems.

I would have to say that dancing is my favorite form of exercise… because it doesn’t feel like work 🙂 That or hiking… anything I can get lost in the activity and not think about the effort I’m putting forth is great!
My favorite exercise is the free style step aerobics on the Wii Fit
