My Fitness Coach wasn't actually designed for the Wii. It's a port of an older game called Yourself! Fitness, which came out several years ago for the PlayStation 2 and original Xbox console. As such, the game is not compatible with the WIi balance board, and it's a shame. However, the game does offer support for other player-owned workout equipment like hand weights, stability ball, steps, and heart-rate monitor . (If you tell Maya that you own these products, she'll incorporate exercises that use them into the workouts.)

My Fitness Coach is a decent workout alternative for people who can't get out to the gym. It offers deeper goals and less of a cuteness factor than Wii Fit, and is great for people who don't have a Wii balance board. Those that do, however, will be disappointed by the possibilities that got squandered.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
