Me, Venus Williams and EA SPORTS Active 2








It is no secret that I'm a fan of EA SPORTS Active. This virtual trainer literally started me on my journey to healthy living. It took a couple of times but by using EA SPORTS Active More Workouts I lost 20 plus pounds and have remained physically active to the tune of losing 30 additional pounds.

A new version of the game is being released tomorrow and to say I'm excited is an understatement. In early October I traveled to LA to try out the new game and I also had the opportunity to sit down with tennis phenom Venus Williams, the new brand ambassador for the game.

She is truly a sweetheart and I have to tell you that I feel especially accomplished because standing next to a professional athlete I still look fit! Check out our interview below.

I'll be sure to let you know about my progress with EA SPORTS Active 2. It is available for the Wii, PS3 and Xbox360. The thing that I love about it is the game now includes a heart rate monitor and it is virtually hands free on the Wii! I can now use my own weights with the product. And if you have the other platforms you truly can go hands free and download updates from the Internet!

Can you tell I'm excited? With the weather becoming colder I will now return to using EA PORTS active as my main form of exercise as I prepare for my half marathon in February.

Wow, how fun! I pre-ordered my copy of EA Active 2 and look forward to jumping into it. I really enjoyed the first version and even stopped using my personal trainer after I started using it to exercise. Love, love, love it!!

OMG you got to meet Venus! How cool!

I haven't played that particular game before but I had a WiiFit and tested out the WiiFit plus. It wasn't really for me, but I love your story about how it kick started your journey into fitness. If it can do that for other folks it gets a definite thumbs up!
