    What's the best one for someone new into exercise..nothing hard core..
  • emmalarkins Feb 18, 2013 @ 3:55 pm
    I would have to say Kinect Sports. It's by far the simplest and easiest to get into, and it's fun enough that your workout doesn't feel like a workout (even though you're getting a surprising amount of exercise)! The next step up after that would be Your Shape.

    Great Lens! I'm interested in UFC Personal Trainer for fitness. For horror I am interested in Rise of nightmares.

And the #1 Best Kinect Fitness Game Is...

... Your Shape Fitness!

Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 - Xbox 360

#1: Your Shape Fitness, Evolved

So, what can we expect from this update to the current Your Shape Fitness Evolved? Well, it looks like there are going to be new effects, new moves, and new ways to improve on your technique.

If you liked Your Shape Fitness Evolved, then you're sure to like this version for 2012. New activities will include "zen classes," Latin dancing, bootcamp, and a feature called "Run the World" that lets you run in different environments without leaving the comfort of your home. Still to be seen is whether the upgraded interactivity and graphics is worth the price tag if you already own the original game.

UPDATE: Dance Central 3 is the latest entry in the franchise.

Trey says in the comments below, "Dance Central 2 works better for me that anything. Sure, I feel like a goober half the time, but those dances on hard are truly a cardio blast." Although it's not strictly a Kinect fitness game, it does provide a great workout. It's also been voted the second best Kinect game out of all the titles available.

    Some very useful information here! I've HEARD about these fitness games, but have never actually tried them... but it sounds like a winner, especially for those of us who really hate going to a gym.

    Great recommendation. I like EA Sports Active 2 with the heart monitor. Way to go man.
