Ubisoft Your Shape Xbox Kinect Game – Review & Giveaway

14th March 2011

It’s amazing how many options now exist when working out at home.

Your Shape for the Xbox Kinect is actually the first workout game that my kids and I have had a chance to try out on the Xbox 360. As with all the Kinect games, you require no controller – just room to move, so that the sensors can properly read you.

Your Shape begins by allowing you to create your profile, and it literally scans your body to take measurements, which will then be used to tailor exercises for you. The kids were AMAZED by the body scanning – they got to see Mommy’s “bones” so it was a thrill for them. Less thrilling for me was the very realistic reflection looking back at me during the workout – not pretty at all. Also, a huge eye-opener, as if I need yet another one.

The game is separated into three different fitness modes – Personal Training, Fitness Classes, and Gym Games. The Training is the main part of Your Shape, where you work along with a trainer on over 80 different exercises routines. It is extremely accurate, and it had no problem reading my every move. The Fitness Classes include Cardio Boxing and Zen – loved the cardio boxing routine that I tried out. It was really fun, and a great workout. Finally, the Gym Glasses were the biggest hit with my kids, and again, really fun.

I think this is a great option for working out at home, and a family-friendly one too!!

    I like to do my Boot Camp video, but it’s on VHS and my husband wants to throw out that old system…time for an upgrade!

  2. Jen

    I love running, or walking, but the weather (especially in the winter) doesn’t always make this easy, so would love to win this game!

  3. Erika

    My favourite way to work out is to go to a “pain camp” at work run by a person who used to be in the military…it’s intense!

    This looks fun. My best workout is when my hubby and myself go running together. It’s just so much more fun doing it together.

    My favorite workout is the Zumba class I take. It doesn’t feel like I’m exercising at all. I just bought xbox kinect for my husband for his birthday so it would be nice if I can use it too.

    My fave way to work out is by taking a nightly walk with my kids and riding my exercise bike while watching tv. We have a Kinect so I also like to play the games, it is a great workout! Thanks!

  7. Justine

    My fave way to workout is to run on my treadmill while I’m watching tv…however I really want this game, I was just thinking about getting it today!

    My life is a constant workout, but my favourite is early morning with 45 minutes on the elliptical, a little free weights, and stretching. At night, I teach Scottish dance, so am on the “move” until 9 p.m.
