Jumpstart: Get Moving: Family Fitness (Review and Giveaway)

I was given the opportunity to review Jumpstart's newest game for the Wii, Get Moving: Family Fitness. We loved it! First of all, we had only played on a Wii once before so that was still a new experience for us. The game was very easy to navigate through and I think it is perfect for all ages of the family. I liked how each different sport used some different muscle in the body to work out, or at least a different movement was required. I actually felt sore after playing so you know that's a good sign!

My husband and daughter loved playing too. In this picture they are sitting down, but that definitely wasn't always the case. The game really does get you moving!

After each sport activity, the game gives you little tidbits about how to be and stay healthy. Perfect for kids who are playing along. My three year old liked the game but since she has never really played on a Wii system, found some of it a little difficult to understand. Still, I believe most children would do well with this game. As for you adults, my husband and I had a ball. You can play one or two player which can make for some friendly competition in the many skill challenges of the game. They also allow you to pick your skill level of easy, moderate, or hard. We started easy and found the challenges still engaging but not too hard.

Here are a few screenshots of the game...

I enjoyed playing a lot of the games but my favorite had to be football. I don't know if it's because of the fact that I LOVE football or if I just loved the workout of this game. What I can tell you is that it's really fun. I say get out and try it...Get moving!

Hi Amanda, we just got a Wii and I think the boys would love this, so I'd like to win it for them.
