Wii gamers use their Balance Board to get fit and shed the fat in Jillian Michaels' Fitness Ultimatum 2009. Known for her work as a personal trainer on the TV program The Biggest Loser, Michaels guides players through a program full of varied workouts and fitness tests. Users can select from Weight Loss, Strength Training, Interval, and Hill Climb exercise routines, and then choose a workout length, from a quick five-minute romp all the way to an hour-long session. Players begin in a simulated boot camp, where each workout starts with a series of judged challenges that include: obstacle courses, balance beam, rowing, crossing monkey bars, and punching a weighted bag, among others. Personal data is tracked so players can measure their progress with regard to weight loss and calories burned, and users can unlock video tips about fitness and lifestyle. The game also lets two players get fit together by racing against each other in the complete obstacle course or any single challenge in Competitive Campfire mode. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
