About The Biggest Loser Challenge Video Game
The Biggest Loser Challenge is an exhilarating interactive health and fitness video game that
will allow players to experience grueling workouts, competitive challenges, the thrill of winning a
weigh-in, and making an easy, healthy meal. In the new game, players can create their own
avatar and watch as their body transforms both on and off the screen as they workout in four
environments featured from the TV show, including “The Biggest Loser” Ranch, “The Biggest
Loser” Gym, “The Biggest Loser” Yoga Area and “The Biggest Loser” Boxing Ring. Players can
workout with a friend in 4, 8 or 12-week programs that can be customized from more than 125
exercise moves, including upper body, lower body, core, cardio, yoga and cardio boxing. The
game also allows players to select from 10 pre-set programs that range from a 4-week New You
beginner program with a focus on all-around fitness; a challenging 8-week Belly Buster program
designed to slim, tone and strengthen stomach muscles; and an intense 12-week Fighting Fit
program intended to improve agility, coordination and stamina through cardio boxing.
The Biggest Loser Challenge encourages friends and families to participate together by linking
players’ profiles so that they can congratulate one another for accomplishments or help motivate
those who may not have signed in recently and are behind in their regimen. Players can also
join in on another player’s activity without interrupting the game.
• Enhanced Fitness Experience: Players can create a more intense program by
incorporating the Wii Balance Board™, a stability ball or resistance bands into their
gameplay. The game will also offer a customized workout experience by adjusting its
level of difficulty based on a player’s performance throughout the routine.
• Progress Tracking: An in-game calendar tracks players’ progress while also suggesting
a recommended routine for that day, challenges, weigh-in information and personalized
nutrition information, such as recommended calorie intake, calories burned and calories
consumed. Players have the option of inputting outside activity as well so that it counts
toward their overall goal.
• New Recipes: The game features 50 all-new recipes from The New York Times bestselling
book series The Biggest Loser, completing the game as an all-encompassing
• Motivation: Players are directed and encouraged throughout the game with suggestions
and tips from the show’s trainers and former contestants.
I have been extremely impressed with this game. The first time I used it, it took me through a 30 minute evaluation to see where I was. After that, it recommended the type of workout that I should do. It also allowed me to measure myself so that I know where I am now.
The workouts really pushed me. I was pretty skeptical, but after every workout, I'm sore. They take the time to explain what you do during each workout and while you're exercising, the "trainer" keeps giving me words of encouragement that keeps me going. My only problem is that many of the workouts involve me being on the floor which is hard to watch what my trainer is doing up on the TV. If they called out to stop or go, maybe it would make it easier.
You don't have to use your balance board, but I have one and couldn't imagine doing this game without it. You need to have the remote in most of the workouts as well. I have a problem when it asks me to switch from pocket to pocket-my workout pants don't have pockets!
I need a little moral support at times when working out and love that two players can train together and then compete to see who the biggest loser is. I'm a very competitive person and this pushes me to work harder than I would without having someone else.
Overall I think this is an awesome game with great workouts. I wish there was a little more of a variety and that you could personalize your character, but I am usually exhausted after working out with this game.
The Biggest Loser Challenge Wii Game retails for $29.99.
