Hi Cgull, glad you liked this. I sure hope you'd be able to get this. I've read in many blogs' comments that they have difficulty finding one. I hope the manufacturers take care of this problem.

That's a quite comprehensive work out beats me, but beats me how anyone actually sticks at it once the novelty has worn off.

Hi Katyzzz, good point. I think it is best to treat this as an exercise machine instead of treating it as a game. If it's done that way, like treadmill, it won't be passed off as another novelty game, hopefully. Besides, it's going to give a comprehensive workout, as you've said and hopefully, users will develop a good workout discipline in the long run. Thanks for dropping by and giving us your thoughts. :)

Heheheh. Hi Cindyvine, good luck. :) Don't they have technicians or tech support, they should help you set up your wii. Vendors shouldn't expect you to automatically know what to do, ask them for help. Best of luck.
