My Fitness Coach 2: Exercise and Nutrition is a good program, but it’s not the best choice on the market. Wii Fit Plus, EA Active, and Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout are better choices for a fun workout. This game is difficult to follow and understand, and between exercises there is a lot of time during which information is presented, which makes it impossible to have a continuous workout. That makes the value of the workout dubious. That said, any incentive to get off the couch for a workout is an admiral fitness tool. If you really want to lose weight, you need to get some exercise. You also need a healthy, balanced diet, good eating and exercise habits, and some reliable products, like a fat burner and an appetite suppressant, to help you stay on your diet. There is no new or different information contained in this software, and the advice and presentation is pedestrian at best. The Wii can be a great fitness tool, but our advice is to find a software that is more fun and less confusing.
