One of my searchers today was looking for the answer to this very simple question: Do you need nunchucks to use the new EA SPORTS Active 2 for the Nintendo Wii.

The answer:  No.  You do not need a nunchuk.

In fact, there are several times during a workout when the trainer will tell you you don’t even need the Wiimote.

In the first two iterations of EA SPORTS Active, you had to have the nunchuck plugged in to even begin a workout.

Since they’ve added a new leg band and an arm band that do cool things like monitor heart rate and talk to the console, things are much different.

You can still do what we did when we wanted to make the resistance band a little tougher on the muscles and use a set of hand-held weights with safety handles on them, but it’s been nice working out with the product and not having to worry about that wire going to the left when you’re doing things like crunches, etc.

Thanks for the question.
