Ok, so if you follow on facebook or twitter you may know that we got an Xbox Kinect for Valentine’s Day. Really romantic huh. With the combo of our lovey dovey gift and my families current weight loss challenge (everyone put in $25 so there’s upwards of $200 riding on it), I have been playing Ubisoft’s Your Shape Fitness Evolved game. And let me tell you, it’s pretty dang cool!
First, you take a fitness test to see what your current level is. Let’s not talk about my fitness level. We’ll just say when I followed up the fitness test with the “Light & Easy” gauged to be simple for anyone workout, I felt it. I am a sad specimen. (Though my 23 year old sis did one of the real workouts after the fitness test and she could not walk stairs or lower herself to the toilet seat she was so sore the next day.) I need my little virtual trainer to whip me back in to pre-baby shape.
As you can see in the videos, I love how it shows you next to the trainer so you can see exactly what you are doing wrong. Do I enjoy seeing my lard-o baby bulge next to Barbie size trainer, not so much, but I do like that I can see how my movements compare to hers. It also gives you tips about how to improve your form as you go along. It’s great!
What I look like next to my Barbie trainer.
So I have a fondness for Eclairs. What can I say?!
I also think Your Shape Fitness Evolved is easier to control than some of our other Kinect games. It recognizes what I am trying to select quickly so I am not fiddling around trying to get it to point at the right thing. Love that!
So what I am trying to say is…Your Shape Fitness Evolved is fun, it will make you sore, and you can do it at home in your pj’s during nap time! This trainer is available 24/7! Wish me luck in my family weight loss competition!
