Since I have not been in a gym in over 2 years, I would say I am back at beginner. Especially since my little mii character has been labeled obese and shaped as round as me per the Wii Fit Plus. With that said, this is a great game for all ages.
You can register a maximum of 8 mii characters for the game to track their progress.
As a workout tool, it is great for a beginners or intermediate workout. IF you are a diehard athlete, you can use it more so for family fun or to continue working on your balance and flexibility.
You can setup your custom routines which it saves on MY Wii fit routine. You can adjust it as needed. It kept the one I created with no issues. As you progress, you get to unlock bonus exercises in strength training as well.
Please note that when you have multiple people using at the same time, and the last person logged in was someone who has not unlocked longer times in the Aerobics section - it will not allow you to use the longer times when you switch mii characters during play. Just as well, no one wants to wait 10 minutes for the other person to complete Rhythm boxing so that you can have a try.
Just wish it came with a measuring tape and a pedometer(allows you keep track of steps and waist size), but since we are wishing I would of also loved a water bottle and sweatbands. LOL
I have owned it for 30 days and used it an average of 2 times a week. Have to fight the little kiddies off to play it for my whole hour that it takes me to reach my burn goal of 455. It has a nice feature called Burn Goal that lets you select how many calories you want to make sure you burn each time you workout on it. I am more a aerobics and balance game user, but have tried all the yoga and strength training exercises (except pushups).
Results. loss 9 pounds in 30 days. Not bad since I was using it for more a fun pastime. Now I have 60 more days left to reach my weight goal that it allowed me to setup as well.
Btw, it also allows you install the Wii Fit Plus Channel so that you can have a limited variation of the game though you do not have the game cd in the console.
Fun factor: All the games are fun to do and fun to watch other people do. My 2 preschoolers are able to do all the games( they are better at the balance games, must be the lack of excess weight).
This is a definite buy regardless of athletic ability due to fun factor and a great alternative to family board games.
