My experience with Your Shape: Fitness Evolved

   0


So about three weeks ago, I won a chance to be a part of this thing. I signed up for it mostly because hey, free workout! I mean, I can work out whenever, but I haven't really been motivated to do so ever since moving to San Francisco at the beginning of this year. It's hard making time for things like working out when you're constantly working busy, not to mention living in a house full of Dtoid staff.

Needless to say, I was hoping this experience would be the jump start that I needed to start taking care of myself properly again and after two intense days of working out, I can say that I definitely have that drive once more.

Going to the Your Shape: Fitness Evolved bootcamp also meant that I could finally try out Kinect. I've had some play time with the device before, but I only usually had less than an hour or so to mess with the thing. So up until the bootcamp, I didn't think much of Microsoft's new device. I just thought it was going to be a gimmick really.

After this event though, I realized the full potential for Kinect. Still hard to say if Kinect will ever be able to appease hardcore fans (especially shooters), but something like Your Shape: Fitness Evolved is just perfect on the platform. Kinect really is responsive to the player's body. The best part of the whole thing is that Kinect/Your Shape is able to correct you if you're doing a specific move wrong. I have zero experience with Tai Chi, but as I was doing the moves, the game would show me whether I was doing a move right or wrong. Something that an exercise tape wouldn't be able to tell me.

On top of the game, Ubisoft brought out David Jack and Laurel House, two amazing personal trainers that showed us smart ways to exercise and thought us some better eating habits.

Laurel's exercising methods are pretty much a life changer. Just look at this video. Simple things you can do while watching TV! That's incredible.



With the exception of the past two days (I've been sick), I've been pretty much doing some sort of exercising since the Your Shape event. So thanks Ubisoft, David Jack and Laurel House. Major thanks to Renelly Morel too, who setup the entire event.

I'M GOING TO BE SO RIPPED AT PAX, YOU GUYS!
