Gold's Gym Dance Workout (Wii)

Gold's Gym Dance Workout includes Latin dance styles, choreographed boxing dances and fun mini-games that target specific muscle groups. Each game comes with a seven day VIP pass to workout at Gold's Gym. Developed by Landho Co., Ltd. and available exclusively for the Wii.

The game offers a wide variety of dance routines featuring popular Latin dance styles as well as a selection of boxing-inspired dance routines. The game supports two-person co-op mode, so players can grab a friend and dance calories away together. Players will also be able to burn calories playing mini-games such as canoeing, bull dodging, jump rope and more. Players will have so much fun playing the game that they won't even notice how much they're sweating. In addition, the game offers multiple training modes to appeal to all fitness levels, and the difficulty of the gameplay evolves as the player's fitness level increases. Players can also choose to work out around the world at five of Gold's Gym's most iconic locations, including gyms in Japan, Egypt, Australia, India and the legendary Venice Beach, CA.

Compatible with the Wii Balance Board accessory, Gold's Gym Dance Workout provides players with a personal experience. Players can build their own circuit program or have one created for them. Circuit programs include continuous dancing and mini-game sessions that provide a full cardio workout. In addition, the player's exercise history, calories burned, and body mass index are stored in the game so players can track their fitness and weight loss progress as they strive towards their personal fitness goals.

Gold's Gym Dance Workout, rated "E 10+" for everyone over 10 years old, is currently available on North America for $29.99.
