Meets my Expectations (which granted weren't high)

Summary: I am probably a mid level athlete -- somewhere between couch potato and personal trainer. Staying active is important to me, but not enough to commit to a structured regimen. And I've learned, if exercise isn't fun I simply won't do it. With that in mind, I started YSFE by avoiding setting any kind of objective, based on other reviews that said doing so creates flagged workouts that are the only ones that count in your progress.
Summary: I have used this for a while now. I really do suggest this as a good way to get a decent workout. It watches you and lets you know if you are performing the exercises correctly. I can really work up a sweat with the programs. There are several programs to follow and you even get rewards for reaching goals. You can increase the effectiveness of your workouts by adding hand weights.
Summary: I bought this along with UFC trainer. This game is fun. you have many choices to pick from. The tracking if pretty great. The trainer will tell you to move your hands, arms, leg up or down if your out of sync. Honestly i find my self chewing the game out at times because of this alone. At times if your a "bigger" person like me the game wont be able to pick up some of the movements to well.
Summary: I have been a couch potato for years. And I drink too much. As a former TKD Black Belt, I was feeling some guilt about my present circumstances. I did a lot of reading about the different exercise games and after trying a few demos decided to go with this one. NO REGRETS! Take the time to go through the set up properly, then choose the activities that you want to do. I love the wall breaking and ball kicking sessions.
Great way to get yourself in "shape" if you stick with it

Summary: The Fitness Shape program is defintely good for cardio and strength training. I am still fairly new to the XBOX 360 w/Kinect, but it always wants to start over and do the entire assessment test on my body each time I put the disc in. It does not seem to save it like some of my other games do. I do like the cardio boxing. As you complete each level it unlocks the next level of that particular game you had selected.
Summary: Bottom line: This is the only fitness game I consistently play. I describe this game to people unfamiliar with Kinect as "like a video workout, but one that will call you out if you put in half the required effort". Highlights: -A large variety of workouts to choose from -The workouts are actually fun -The game does a decent job of detecting your moves (~90% of the time, it's effectively recognizing my movements) -I worked up quite a sweat.
This is the future of home exercise, but it's got room for improvement

Summary: I'm tempted to give this 5 stars, just because I like the concept so much. But there are enough flaws in it that I can really only justify 4. Plenty of other reviews here give a complete rundown of what's involved in the program, and how it compares with the previous version (which I did not own), so I'll skip right to what I think is good about it and what needs improvement.
Summary: I was NEVER a workout kind of person at all. In fact, I didn't believe in it due to all the sweating and soreness and what not. Who wants that? But as I've gotten older I knew I needed to do something and I picked Your Shape Fitness. I didn't believe I could get a respectable workout using a game console but I have thoroughly enjoyed working out with the YSF "games".
