Game of the Week - Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout

Wii Fit has proven to be a huge success, getting gamers and non-gamers off the couch for a fun, action-packed workout. Ubisoft is looking to build on that momentum with the release of its Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout.

Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout focuses on aerobic or cardio exercises, with a heavy emphasis on the high-energy boxing routines that have become so popular in gyms around the country.

You get started by choosing a character for the game – similar to your Mii for other Wii games. You can also preview music to play during your workouts, select your preferred instructor, and choose a background setting – the gym, a forest, or the seaside!

The game shows you the moves you need to make and you repeat them, earning points and progressing through the exercises. Once all the basic levels have been cleared, you can move on to Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced levels, continuing to earn points as you progress.

The huge choice of programs will really have you working up a sweat! A calorie counter shows you the approximate burn rate and the Boxing Examination mode will keep you honest and force you to hit passing scores before you can move on to the next level. A My Data feature allows you to track your progress and build a calendar of achievements.

The game is perfectly synched with the Wii controls, allowing you to use one Wii remote and the Nunchuk or, better still, two Wii remotes. The game also supports the Wii Balance Board but only for 4 of the non-boxing exercises that are unlocked as you work your way through the program.

Gold’s Gym Cardio Workout delivers a great, heart-thumping work-out. If you want to get off the treadmill and work that upper body, this is the game for you!

* The game includes a bonus 7-day VIP Gold’s Gym membership pass.
