He helped develop EA Active for the Wii.
And let me be the first to tell you - Amanda - if you have a wii - GO GET THIS PROGRAM. NOW.
I don't say game because it's not a game. Wii Fit is a game.
EA Active is a HECK OF A WORKOUT
This morning I did 75% of one of their "easy" workouts, and I'm sore, sweating, and exhausted. From running to kick-ups to squats, lunges, bent-over rows, pull ups, and more - it keeps you jumping from one exercise to the next, urging you on to more and more caloric burn.
EA Active is an actual in-home cross trainer that really and truly DOES THE JOB. And on top of that - it moves so fast, you don't have time to get bored or complacent. It's even vaguely fun. LOL
Trust me - GO GET IT.
On a side note - I wanted to say thank you to everyone who's posting (and e-mailing) with help and suggestions for my parents. I may (or may not) choose to take some of you up on your suggestions, and regardless of if I do or not, I appreciate them.
That being said - I wanted to feature a snippit from an e-mail I received yesterday.
"I've been reading your blog for a long time, more than a year. I think what you're trying to accomplish is great. I've finally decided to start to run as well. I'm not really overweight, but I could lose a good 15 pounds or so, as well as just get into generally better shape. I've been feeling self conscious about running through my little suburban town where everyone will see me huffing and puffing, but the thought of you and all of the other Disney runners doing the same makes me feel much more at ease.
I also wanted to comment on the issues with your parents. Although I know the situations are different, my mom passed away after a long battle with breast cancer about a year and a half ago. So if a little 15 year old girl can get through that kind of a hardship, I'm sure that you can get through whatever life throws at you.
Good luck with your training and your family, both the generation above you and the impending one below. :)"
Yes. You read that second paragraph right. She's 17 years old right now. What an amazing 17 year old. (Alright - in fairness, she'll BE 17 in about a month).
It's e-mails like these that keep me going. Friends like Rae, Deb, Amanda, Kate, Justin, Maroo, Mike, Chris, Jeff W., Lisa, Trace, Heath, and everyone in team voice.
You guys just...ROCK.
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
