Created exclusively for Wii, Gold's Gym Dance Workout uses the motion-sensitive Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers -- and optionally, the Wii Balance Board -- to monitor player performance in a series of aerobic workout routines. Some of the software's virtual exercise activities are based on real-life and extreme sports, such as karate, rowing, and even bull riding and kangaroo boxing. Users can enter data based on their physical statistics, and the software will track the approximate number of calories burned, as well as their exercise history, time played, and changes to their body-mass index reading. A built-in virtual training coach can gradually increase the intensity of the workouts based on the player's improved performance. Central to the program are circuit routines, which string together dance exercises into a continuous work-out lasting up to 30 minutes. Gold's Gym Dance Workout supports two players at once, allowing the user to work out with a friend.
