Last minute gift idea! Country Dance 2 Wii game! #Fitness Friday

Whether you are trying to lose a few pounds or you just really love country music, put your dancing shoes on, grab your Wii remote and start movin’ to the music!  Country Dance 2 for Wii has over 18 CMA award winning artists and 30+ songs for you to enjoy.
Did you know that thirty minutes of line dancing burns about 150 calories??
Some information about the game:  Basically, you just grab your Wii remote and try to replicate the dance moves on the screen in order to earn  points.  Up to 4 players can dance at the same time and it even offers a ‘duet’ that is choreographed so that 2 players can actually dance together during the same song. There is also a sing along feature and a calorie counting mode as well.   Here is the ‘playlist’ that you will find included in this game:
• Ashton Shepherd – “Look It Up”
• Billy Currington – “People Are Crazy”
• Blake Shelton – “Honey Bee”
• Brad Paisley – “Old Alabama”
• Carrie Underwood – “All American Girl”
• Chad Brownlee – “Carried Away”
• Chris Heers – “Dirt Rich”
• Dierks Bentley – “Sideways”
• Easton Corbin – “Roll With It”
• Eric Church – “Hell On The Heart”
• Frankie Ballard – “A Buncha Girls”
• George Strait – “Here For A Good Time”
• Gwyneth Paltrow – “Shake That Thing”
• Hayley McLean – “Good Time Bone”
• Hunter Hayes – “Storm Warning”
• Jake Owen – “Barefoot Blue Jean Night”
• Jason Aldean – “My Kinda Party”
• Joanna Smith – “Gettin’ Married”
• Josh Kelley – “Georgia Clay”
• Josh Thompson – “Won’t Be Lonely Long”
• Katie Armiger – “Best Song Ever”
• Keith Urban – “Better Life”
• Kellie Pickler – “Tough”
• Lady Antebellum – “Lookin For a Good Time”
• Little Big Town – “Little White Church”
• Luke Bryan – “Country Girl”
• Miranda Lambert – “Gunpowder & Lead”
• Montgomery Gentry – “What Do Ya Think About That”
• Rodney Atkins – “Take A Back Road”
• The JaneDear Girls – “Wildflower”
• The Last Ride– “Take You Down”

So, my opinion: I liked the selection of music, although none of the songs is what I would call the artist’s biggest hits.  I found the moves fairly hard to follow if I tried going by the little diagrams that scroll along the bottom but easier to get if I just mimicked what the on screen dancer was doing.  This will require some repetition to really get, though.  Once I figured out the moves, scoring the points was fairly easy.

Both of my kids (10 and 12) thought it was too hard but it isn’t really designed for kids.
Overall, it was good music and fun to try and figure out.  With practice it will be a fun way to get your heart rate up but keep the blinds closed while you learn so the neighbors don’t fall out of their chairs laughing!
