Just as NFL training camp season is starting for real, EA Sports has announced the development of EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp for the Wii. As you might imagine, the game is a football-based training program that puts users through NFL training camp drills and conditioning workouts. Developed in collaboration with NFL strength and conditioning coaches, the game enables players to experience the thrill of competition while challenging friends and family in authentic NFL football drills. EA Sports Active Total Body Tracking uses the included heart rate monitor and wireless motion tracking to both give you a workout and help deliver measurable results at the same time, linking to the EA Sports Active online hub, where users can share training results and challenge others to beat their personal best as well as track progress towards specific fitness goals.

The game includes over 70 drills and challenges designed to improve strength, power and conditioning, as well as reaction skills, agility and first step quickness, which are key areas NFL players focus on. You’ll even get to choose your fave team and train alongside its star players. And for those willing and able to take it to the next level, there’s always the NFL Combine 60 Day Challenge. Here’s Andrew Wilson, Senior Vice President , Worldwide Development, EA Sports, talking about the game:

EA SPORTS Active NFL Training Camp delivers an authentic NFL experience that is fun and engaging, while providing a challenging workout. It exemplifies our commitment to both NFL football and the fitness space, as well as delivering new experiences for new audiences.
The game will be released for the Wii on November 16th, with an MRSP of $99.95.
