It does have a effective workouts. However couldnt get past how childish the game looked and SOUNDED omg... both the male and female voice sound like high pitched children. I thought this game was geared towards Adults, as thats who I saw in all the commercials for it, no families using it. I did have friends who liked it, but some who didnt too. I could have maybe gotten past the design if they had normal voices couching you.
