This is really strange, packing leg bands with the game. EA should just use the Wii Fit board.

Just so you know, a treadmill or eliptical machine is tax deductible people.

And first impressions from Gamespot (http://www.gamespot.com/wii/sports/easportsactive/news.html?sid=6206055&mode=previews).

When you first start EA Sports Active, you'll be virtually greeted by celebrity trainer Bob Green, Oprah's anointed fitness guru, who'll pop up as you train to offer tips or general motivation. You'll set up a profile and enter information about your height, weight, gender, and fitness goals, which the game will use to calculate your progress as you train. The interface is divided into four sections: workout, nutrition, lifestyle, and other activity. Workout is the heart of the experience, with a mass of different exercises broken up into cardio and upper and lower categories. You'll be able to put as much or as little work into your regime as you want. The game will feature dozens of themed workouts, but you can also create your own customized workout made of exercises that you can tweak to different difficulties. As you adjust your regime, the game will keep tabs and show you what muscle groups will be getting worked on. The other sections--nutrition, lifestyle, and other activity--are a mix of surveys and data input that the game will factor in as it tracks your progress toward your goals.

The exercises themselves require you to use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk in tandem with the two supplied accessories: a resistance band and a special strap. As you go through the exercises, you'll be told when to use one of the accessories. The game is diligent about offering feedback--in the form of audio cues and voice prompts--to make sure you're exercising properly. If that isn't enough to keep you on the straight and narrow, it looks like just about everything has some kind of tutorial video if you need assistance.

One of my issues with this is the leg strap...the nunchuk is an accelerometer...one that I find doesn't always pick up on slow, non-jerky movements. So, I wonder, with something like squats, if you move through it slowly and steadily, will it even pick up the movement?
