    Kicks my butt!!

    Posted .

    I had bought the Kinect for workout games such as this one. The set up takes a while, but once you get everything set up, Kinect will recognize you and log you into your profile. It will keep track of calories burned in a session, and total calories burned. This helps me to know where I am in my personal goals. There are many different workouts, and each one is different. The workouts are set up to do three exercises, then a small break (no more than a minute), then three more and so on. The trainer is a beast! They will definitely give you the motivation to work harder! I would like to see more cool down exercises, and more low impact exercises. There is not a stretching period, and they don't really emphasize stretching at all. I would purchase an updated version if the game designers put a stretching or yoga session in the game. During the game, you have to be in sync with the trainer, and if you aren't, any exercise that you do won't count. It can become frustrating if you are tired and need to take the exercise down a notch. There is only on and off, there is not a "slow down for a couple minutes!" Overall, it's a fun way to get into exercising without paying for a gym membership.

    About what i expceted

    Posted .

    Your shape is very helpful for me as i just had a baby. I would have liked the games on it to be more of a variety but overall it does what i want it to do and that is track my calories and create a work out program for me. The cardio boxing is the funnest workout for me as it is the closest to dancing they have in the program. It's effective but takes too long between workouts and i get a little bored between sets, also it doesn't seem to see me doing some of the reps and marks me down but i still feel like i'm getting a pretty good work out.

    Good workout overall

    Posted .

    At first thought it was a little simplistic, but started to explore more.. and have started to rediscover muscles I'd forgotten about.. and ones I never knew I had! Only wish it had a 'panic' button when you hit your limit and need to stop and save out... get a cramp or need to step away to rest and you have to 'bail' on it.

    Kinect and Exercise are a great synergy

    Posted .

    Ubisoft's "game" is what an exercise "game" should be. The concept is simple; an on-screen model moves through exercises and you mimic them in rhythm and movements. The Kinect is capable of tracking your body position reasonably well, so it can provide feedback to improve your activities. The exercises are varied and as difficult as you choose to make them (the system ensures you move the right way at the right speed, but you choose the force and effort you put into each move).

    Absolutely love this!

    Posted .

    I bought this game to keep active during the rainy Seattle winters. It is a great way to keep active if you are stuck indoors and don't want to go to a health club. It is fun to set a calorie target and have it track your progress. There are several Michelle Bridges workouts that are fantastic - especially if you like a hard workout.. I find that, even if I don't feel like I have an hour or two to do a proper after-work workout, if I do one of her 15 minute workouts I still feel better. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is there are some quirks in recognizing your form. (ex: a few times it will tell you to move your feet closer together even though they are touching) I am learn to adjust to that as sometimes if you move back a step, then the sensors do a better job. Regardless of that, I feel like I am getting a great workout and because I am not having to drive to a gym, I do it more often and really enjoy it.

    Makes cardio fun

    Posted .

    I haven't had a chance to use any modes other then the games. But the games were fun and before I knew it, I had burned through a 1/2 hour of cardio without realizing it. I couldn't figure out why my shoulders and legs were tired & sore the next day until I realized I had used the game the day before. The user interface is better then Biggest Loser, but could still use some tweaks. The only drawback was that the Kinect had a hard time picking up my feet on the floor exercise games. We have it on top of a large projection screen TV so lowering it may alleviate this, but I haven't had the time to test this theory out. It's a good exercise game for the Kinect, especially since this is a 1st Gen. game.

    Doesn't have a 30 day, 6 week, or 9 week challenge

    Posted .

    First, this game was fun and it was hard work. You are definitely going to get a workout with it. But you may not make it past the first week. There's actually no reason to. There's no 30 day, 6 week, or 9 week challenge. This is one of the things that I loved about EA Sports. It was motivating to know that I needed to log in every day in order to keep up with my challenge. It gave me something to work towards. With this game, I was working towards burning calories. This can be good motivation, but it got old quickly. The graphics were also plain. I got tired of all of the flowers floating around. :-) I'm going to get the EA Sports Active 2 for the Kinect. I loved the first one, so I think this one is going to be a keeper. I know the EA Sports Active 2 is more money, but I think it's worth it. With EA Sports, I always completed my goals and challenges. I really grew bored with this game after the second day. Almost forgot. The website was a big disappointment.

    Decent exercise game tailored to you..

    Posted .

    First off, I have a really bad knee that had left me unable to really do anything much in the way of burning calories.. And I sat for months trying to eat less n less so I would stop gaining so much.. Then Xbox released Kinect.. I'm hooked.. I've gotten to do so much on kinect sports that I bought "your shape fitness evolved". Side note * wear clothes that aren't really loose fitting.. It will make a difference on it's recognition. The game can be tailored to fit your needs.. My first attempt I was barely on a few minutes and I was dripping with sweat! Huffing and puffing!! Now I can play the different routines for 5 hours str8 and be exhausted after but every day my stamina is better and better! I noticed toning within the first week.. And there are updates u can purchase to keep the game evolving with you..

    Excellent home workout, with variety

    Posted .

    I am 25 year old male, who works out frequently. I was looking for a game that would give me a decent workout while at home. This game hits the spot. If you can incorporate dumbbells the game can really push you. There are a wide variety of workouts, and they all seem to target different areas of the body. I enjoy doing this a couple times a week, as it is convenient, effective, and very worthwhile. Make sure to have enough space to play, and patience getting started. Have fun!

    Great workout, fun games

    Posted .

    Kinnect is brilliant! It's fun, it gets you moving, it makes exercising more of a game than work. My kids love the gym games; I love that we're all up and moving instead of being couch potatoes! Would recommend to anyone wanting to try a workout video that gives you feedback without the embarrassment of being in a room full of already in shape people....when you're not (yet!) an in shape person! Try it, it's fun.

    Good to get your heart pumping

    Posted .

    Nothing is better than actually going out and working out but many of us are comfortable staying at home due to some self-conscious or just prefer to work out with family. I'm a workout addict and I've been since the past 10 years. As having kids, work, life and other things, it's quite hard to find time to drive somewhere, jog or join a gym membership. I picked this game up along with the Kinect and since I tried it, it really is quite amusing. Did the training session on my lower body and really got my legs a little soar. It's quite effective I might say and if you keep it up and religious about it, this is a good alternative with great tips in exercise instead of going to the gym. Menus are a little bit confusing in my opinion. Takes too long to go through the initial setup.

    Great Product

    Posted .

    This game is fantastic overall. It gives you seemingly limitless options when customizing a workout. You can also follow along with a personal trainer that gives you feedback on your movement and progress throughout a set workout. The gym games are very fun to play and also give you some great fitness bonuses. Overall I think this is the best fitness game on the market and its compatability with the Kinect is amazing. No issues whatsoever - it is probably the most accurate Kinect game out.

    Excellent fitness game

    Posted .

    Awesome fitness game, the detail when scanning your body is amazing (do not know how accurate it is though). My wife and I love it, so far it's our favorite game out of all the ones we purchased for Kinect.

    Lots of fun while burning calories

    Posted .

    The activities and Gymn classes are great when you want a quick game or workout. The personal trainer routings are nice to reach a specific goal. You put in your stats like weight, age, and specific goal and the personal trainer will create a balance of routines that will guide you towards your goal.

    If you follow along and do what it tells you to its a great workout just dont expect the kinect to pick up on everything you do.

    Great work out game

    Posted .

    This is such a great work out game and blows the wii fit out of the water because you can't cheap like you can in there and it recognizes your every movement and puts you in the game. If you wanna get a work out this is the game.

    This game will push you

    Posted .

    When I first started this game I thought.........well its cool the workouts appear to be not so tough. Once I really got started man it was fun. Presses you to really do the exercises right and if you add free weights to the routine, look out.

    Much better than any Wii Excercise game

    Posted .

    I used to do a lot of Wii fit and EA sports on the Wii, this game blows all those games out of the water. The fact you do not have to hold any controllers at all is by far the best feature. I remember choking myself with the Wii controllers sometimes because some of the moves were not practical with the two controllers. The workouts are easy to follow and the instructors feedback is helpful and most of the time if I correct what the instructor tells me I get a higher score. I love how the experience points it gives and the calorie counter, it is a great way to stay motivated. The only downside is the limited number of games and exercises to choose from and the developers charge an arm and a leg whenever the release a new exercise on XBox360 live. Overall I have a blast working out and it is the best workout game out there.

    Bad experience!

    Posted .

    I purchased this fitness game for myselfwell after the holidays were over. When I found it on sale with free shipping i thought it was a good deal.Little did I know that it would take forever to arrive! Over 2 weeks went by and I decided to call Best Buy. Spoke to a woman who was very polite and helped me by shipping me another copy. That copy arrived in 2 days(different carrier) I never recieved the original copy. I though it was strange as I have ordered many things over the holidays With free shipping and never had a problem...most were there in3-4 days so i was kinda surprised at this one. All in all Best Buy did make it right by sending out a replacement copy right away. Now the game is very well done! It allows you to choose some mini games and actual personal trainer routines. the games are just ok, The personal trainer routines really give you a workout. I started on the beginner level that it personalized based off of some questions it had me answer. I am still paying for it. It has been a while since I have worked out and was quite sore. I also was a bit disapointed that the number of routines offered were a bit low, most are add -ons that you must purchase!But overall I enjoy it very much.

    Home personal trainer

    Posted .

    This game is by far the best workout game on the market! This looks and feels like having your own personal trainer at home. This game customizes your workout based on a wide range of things like weight, height, shoulder length, age, and many other measurements. I have yet to find something I don't like about it! I am a 6ft 400lb 20 year old that usually hates working out, but this game keeps it fun yet still challenging! I absolutely recommend this game to anyone who wants to lose weight or define themselves!
