I have tried many times to add my own equipment for example stability ball; and it just keeps doing aerobics. How do I make it use my equipment?

I'm having the same problem as 'asmuck' and it is very frustrating. The main reason I bought this was for the stability ball and weight routines...I can't even get to the screen to pick the equipment now. Has anyone had success w/using equipment? Thanks!

I have used it with Free Weights and Step. It uses whatever I pick intermittently throughout the workout. So I'll have one or two exercises without and one or two with. Also, I think usually the first 5-10 minutes are without the equipment(when I work out for 1/2 hour). Also, I don't choose my workout from the calendar. After I load my profile, I go to Workout, then choose the base (below the feet) for Weight Loss, click on Burn, then next, choose a length of 30 minutes, then the next screen gives me the close of Stability Ball, Step Bench or Handweights. I click on the items I want and a * appears, then I go to next.
You are probably doing the same thing, but just in case, I thought I'd throw it out there.

Thank you for your response. I'll try again and see what happens...maybe I wasn't giving it enough time. When I chose weights, I expected it to just be a routine w/weights. I wish better documentation or better support would come w/the games. I posted a question to the Ubisoft Tech Support team and their reply was "Thank you for contacting Ubisoft Technical Support. Unfortunately, the issue you are having is related to general gameplay hints and tips that is either covered in the manual, or is available via another source such as the Ubisoft forums" They gave me a link to use and I received a 'not found' message. It took longer for him to create this generic non-helpful response than it would have for him to answer my question!

I have yet to be able to use the stability ball. The program has used the weights and step. But I really wanted to use the ball with it.

I just tried adding equipment as well and had over 10 minutes of cardio before it did any ab exercises, and it never included my stability ball. is there something else that needs to be done

I am having the same problem, I worked out a lots of time and I can not use the equipment, I add them, but they just not show in the work out. I really as well want to use my equipment. Somebody have other Idea.

I was able to the stability ball last night. I selected abs as the area to focus on and tone.

it doesn't pick up the stability ball either for me but the wiehgts and step up are pretty much easy for it to figure out what you're doing but still no success with the ball....anyone?

I have the same issue with it recognizing the step and weights, but not the ball. I've tried selecting the ball on it's own and with weights, as well as a 30 minute and 60 minute abs workout. None of the times was the ball included in the workout.

I am having the same problem and am also frustrated. It let me use the hand weights once about a month ago and it was a great workout. I've tried everything, burn, tone, legs, abs all conbinations and even tried 15 min and 30 min...no luck. If anyone knows what to do ....let us know!

I am having the same problem , I choose stability ball and have tried all different body parts to work on and never uses it ! It will use the weights , have not tried the step . Hopefully someone figures this out or gets a response from ubisoft as to why this is happening !

I'm having the same problem too and have tried to add the stability ball for abs burn and strengthen, doesn't matter the time length it just doesn't add the ball. That's why I got this game for the stability ball and free weights too.
