There's nothing like being a part of something amazing and innovative. For the very first time EA Sports has created a game that is specifically targeted to my demographic: busy moms. The game, EA Sports Active, hits the shelves on May 19, but I along with 11 other challengers are currently participating in the EA Sports Active 30-Day Challenge to let the world know more about EA Sports Active and most importantly, if it works.
The EA Sports Active 30-Day challenge started on Saturday, April 18 and I have already dropped 12 pounds. Granted, I have a lot of pounds to lose, but that, my friends, is impressive, especially when I haven't lost that kind of weight since I was in college and wanted to look good during Spring Break.
EA Sports Active, a virtual trainer in a box built for the Wii, has preset 30-Day Challenge exercises that you can choose from, or if you're feeling rather ambitious you can create custom workouts that work your upper and lower body as well as cardio. One of the greatest benefits I've seen thus far on the challenge is EA Sports Active has allowed me to become what EA Sports ulimately wants: active. I am not only using EA Sports Active, but I am also supplementing my workouts with activites I enjoy outside like walking and running.
You can follow the 30-Day Challenge on the EA Sports Active official site at www.easportsactive.com. Thus far, week one is down, three more to go!
