Summary: Bought the xbox & this work out for the hubby who was excited about not having to hold or attach a controller while working out (we transitioned from the wii). However, after 1 day's use he never touched it again. He said it was too hard to get the machine to recognize his movements.
Summary: I have a feeling that this could be a really fantastic training tool. Unfortunately, it fails due to a critical error in programming judgement. For most activities, the game will ONLY register your movements if you are a) in the proper position, and b) not only do the movement, but do the movement...
Summary: So.. I'm in relatively fit. I road bike countless miles, hit the gym regularly, and generally in pretty good shape. Ordered this based on reviews, NOT to try and fight or learn to strike by any means, just to have something to do at home when I don't feel like leaving the house.
Summary: I wanted to buy this game for a while now, but after reading the complaints, paying full price was out of the question. I had read online that updates/patches had come out and then saw the price dropped so I had some gift card money and took a chance.
Summary: I was so excited to get this game. For someone who has done martial arts for over 10 years I thought this would be a great combination of MA and fitness that I could use during the winter months.
Summary: Honestly the Kinect is just another disfunctional piece of garbage from Microsoft. The game obviously needs to have it's consistency worked on as well but I doubt the kinect is helping it make up for any of its inadequacies.
Pros: Would be ok I guess if it worked correctly.
Cons: Not sure what to say other than it doesn't work consistently at all. I have ample space, the kinect is mounted ideally but it just doesn't register well at all. I'm a 7 year personal trainer with a B.S. in Strength and Conditioning and my push-ups didn't register 20% of the time lol. As a PT I no...
Summary: So I was on the fence about getting the kinect, but then this product announce a $50,000 contest so I figured I'd give it a try. As a trainer it definitely offers you a variety of activities to work with and definitely works up a sweat.
Summary: I'm a big fan of the UFC and a big fan of working out, so this title seemed like a natural fit for me. I've successfully completed P90X and GSP's excellent RushFit, so I have reference as to what a good workout routine is and I entered UFC Trainer with certain expectations, neither of which is fully...
Summary: Having been using 'Your Shape' I was hoping UFC Personal Trainer to be somewhat more exciting and providing extra features. Was it? Has it? No. Straight off the bat, the loading times were huge. While the menu's looked nice, the actual ingame graphics are shocking.
