    Had to share.

    I'm not keen on exercise.. in fact I only join gyms in the vain hope that I will get fit by a process of osmosis. But I did this yesterday with my daughter and it was great fun :D.....All the old disco hits so I could sing my heart out as well.....

    Down side was I could only manage 2 songs before keeling over on the sofa knackered and I nearly wet myself laughing when elder daughter showed me the footage she had taken on her phone ( I thought I was a smooth mover till then):eek:

    Lol...I do this regularly with my 4 year old...she's more competitive than I am!!!

    It is a giggle isnt it? This is the reason why I teach jive...its fun and you dont feel that you are exercising like you would if you were going to the gym.

    Enjoy!

    Love Just Dance, its fun and although gets your heart rate up it doesnt feel like excercise. The music is great, a real mix.

    Only problem is I struggle to get a look in with my 8 year old son and 3 year old daughter, they wont let go of the controllers!

    I think so, There is a warm up section on the game and you can do as little or as much as you have time for so its great if you dont have alot of time, if you dont like excercising or are new to excercise. Each track has an effort and difficulty rating so you can pick what you want to do .

    It definitely gets my heart rate up, i really enjoy it, its good fun but not specifically an excercise/fitness game.

    Hope that helps

    Never had so much fun with my clothes on.

    Picture a 14stone... 5ft zero, 48 yr old unfit women throwing herself around like a demented dwarf and you'll have a good idea why my daughter felt compelled to tape it. Just hope it don't in up on youtube.

    I bought this a couple of weeks ago but haven't had a chance to have a look at it yet. I got flu the next day and just haven't had the energy to even think about about exercise since - I'll dig it out tomorrow :D

    lol! sounds great!! i have been looking at the wii fit boards etc, but i really dont think i can afford one yet a while and thought about getting this game or one of the dance mat games (i loved my old ps2 one years ago!)
    but worried i wont find time to fit it in with an 18 month old baby, house work in the day, cooking and ironing etc in the evening lol

    what other ones do you use? would you recommend any of them?
