My wife and I did a challenge to see who can loose the most calories. We did the same activity and I lost 30 more calories. She does not want to play a challenge because she thinks it is unfair. I am 6'2'' and 210 lb. and she is only 5' 130 lb. We need more challenges besides loosing calories. Like the first person to get to level x or the first person to exercise for x hours or the highest accuracy on a specific workout.

Thoughts?

Yes this is true. But it's the way calorie measurement works. A smaller lighter person burns fewer calories doing the same work. Your wife is more efficient http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

And since when is it a big surprise that women get less credit for doing the same work? (ducking and running) Nature isn't fair...

But seriously - I wish where were other types of challenges too. Percentage scores for workouts would be good. And gym game scores.
