I'm in love with my "personal trainer"

For Christmas I bought my husband a Wii and it has turned out to be the best present ever...for me.  I've been working out with the Wii since New Year's Eve and I've only missed 2 days.  Wii Sports came with the the console (love, love, love the tennis, boxing and bowling) and I purchased the EA SPORTS Active Personal Trainer.  For someone who hasn't been in a gym in over a year and hasn't exercised in 5 months, Active Personal Trainer is the best thing I ever bought.  Within in 20 minutes, the personal trainer takes me through 15 exercises working both my lower and upper boday.  By the end of the workout, I'm sweating profusely and out of breath and I LOVE IT!!!!  I've been telling everyone I know about it, EA SPORTS and Wii should be paying me for advertising :-)  Check out the review from EA SPORTS below.
