Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009

Wow. This game got some really bad reviews over at Amazon. I’m glad I didn’t read them before I ordered it and actually played. Here’s the deal: It’s not Wii Fit. It’s certainly not cute or “fun”. Then again, Jillian Michaels is known for kicking ass, so I got exactly what I paid for: an ass-kicking workout. I gave it 30 minutes today, and I gotta tell ya, I feel like Jillian herself was in my living room running my ass up a hill.

The response time is a little slow, but that actually makes you work harder. I also like the fact that on the instruction screen (between activities) there is no “pause” function. You are forced to read the directions and move immediately on to the activity….no chance to rest. If you’re me, you can’t have the extra slack, otherwise you might sit down for a minute to rest.

Overall, I really like this “game”. No, it’s not cutesy. It’s absolutely no-nonsense, but that’s the point. It’s also one more weapon in my fat-burning arsenal (even though I’ll be the first to admit I’ve fallen off the wagon since Oliver came into our lives, but I’m committed to get back on now). I can’t wait for Kevin to try it. All in all, I give Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2009 a solid 3.5 stars.

    Merrin! I pre-ordered this from Amazon and they just shipped it yesterday! How’d you get it early?
