I've been doing a daily custom routine in since Wii Fit first came out. I transferred my profile to Wii Fit Plus, and now I have Wii Fit U. I can't remember if the routine transferred from original Fit to Fit Plus, but I did have to re-enter my activities to a new routine for Fit U. That's fine. In fact, I love the improvements, like you can now change the number of reps, or the length of time on one of the activities, something that couldn't be done on a routine in the previous versions. I also like that you can drag and drop the order, and that you can add activities from the balance, aerobics or dance games, and aren't just limited to yoga and strength training in a routine.

But the one thing I'm finding annoying, and maybe it's just something I don't know how to change, is that the trainer does an assessment after each activity in the routine, instead of at the end of the whole thing like on the previous versions. I have 19 activities, and on Wii Fit Plus, it'd just flow from one to the next, and then at the end of the 19th one, the trainer would congratulate me. Now on Fit U, after each of the 19 activities, I have to wait for it to draw the red line for where I was centered, as well as listen to the trainer tell me how well I did. This makes what used to be a 30 minute routine take considerably longer to do. This seems to somewhat defeat the purpose of setting up a routine. If I wanted that, I'd just do the individual activities. I was able to turn off "Let's practice first" and change each to "Let's just get at it" which eliminated her sample instructions, but it still does the assessment after each one. Am I missing a setting choice somewhere to change this?

Yeah, I've noticed this on Wii Fit U too. You have to constantly press buttons to skip explanations or talking and it really breaks up the routines you do. Frustrating.

Procrastinating to the extreme!

Yeah I noted that as well. I do 10-15min routines so it's not a big deal, but if I was doing something longer it would be annoying. Why not feed that back via Miiverse? I don't see why things couldn't be changed down the line via an update.

Yeah, I'll try that. And you're right, nowadays they would be able to update the game online. When I first put the disc in there was already an update for something.
If I recall, Wii Fit Plus had a Combine button when putting a routine together. I don't think Wii Fit has that. I do like that you can create three routines though, because it'd be nice to have an alternate quick one for days without as much time.
It'd also be nice if you could select "Don't tell me this again, I understand" for the warning messages on some of the activities, which would really make the routine flow without interruption.

Yeah I'd like the ability to do a one-time "no" on mirror mode to save time or have a icon to tap if you want to use it rather than the lengthy spiel we have now.

Yes, that too! That one was surprising to hear again after the first time I said "no mirror mode", since the individual tutorials can be turned off, why not this one. It can be turned on again from the pause menu, so it really doesn't need to ask us every time.

All you need to do to avoid the tutorials during routines in WiiFitU is got to the routine line you wish to edit' in the routine page, double click a exercise and Click the (+) plus button that appears near the description for that specific exercise, set it to skip the tutorial.
there are only two options there and the second option is what you want.

hope it helps.

Since the update routines are soooo much better. No more pressing A to progress! No more Mirror Mode prompt, yay!
