XBox360 KINECT



Recommended Posts

I got an XBox360 with KINECT for Christmas from my parents and I love it! It is kicking my tail!!! My daughter and I were running laps (in place) last night. I had to lay down I was so tired. I think this is going to be a great addition to my elliptical routine. Does anyone else have one and what exercise games are you using? I was thinking about the Zumba one?

I so want to get Zumba. I've never tried it before but it looks like a good workout!

I looked at Zumba too but it didnt get great reviews. If you get it definetely put a review up. My DH and I have a friend that has Dance Central and it is so much fun! I have been eye balling Your Shape Fitness Evolved. Apparently the onscreen trainer tells you when you arent doing the exercise right and doesnt count your reps if they arent in correct form. It looks brutal.

I recently just bought and started to use the Your Shape game and it is pretty good. It also counts your calories and has some fun features.

We have Dance Masters, maybe Dance Central. It isn't the one that does the freestyle dance but the one that breaks down the moves. We love it! It will kill you! Lol!

I have Zumba and it is so fun. It is hard I'm not going to say it's easy but I enjoy it. I want to get Biggest Loser next and maybe Dance Central.

Yes. I don't have any of the fitness games bc I just can't seem to have fun with them. I know the dance game we have is hilarious but tough. It will wear out. You get so dead set on beating a song that you just keep doing it & end up worn out. I am going to get Zumba next but will wait for it on the pre-owned game shelf at GameStop.

If you get any of the games, I highly suggest reading the customer reviews on them on Amazon. It may save you some money.

ETA: The dance game we have is Dance Central.

The Dance Central game for the Kinnect also has a workout mode that also counts your calories. After doing one song I already burned 20 calories. The game is tough and will make you sore and sweat alot but it is def fun and worth trying out.

We have Dance Central and Fitness Evolved. I didn't know Dance Central had a workout mode. Sweet! I start FE tomorrow, as my two weeks of walking only are up. I did already set up my profile and played some of the gym games. Totally fun. I love the Kinect!!

Just got my Zumba and love it already. I will say its not so much a game as it feels like your doing an actual aerobics class from the comfort of your living room. I was only able to do about 15 mins of it and I was pouring sweat so it really gets you moving hopefully I will work up to being able to complete a session. But I am only two weeks post op and started having some pain so I had to stop.

The Zumba for Kinect will kick your ass!! My husband did it first just for fun and as I'm watching him I'm saying ohhh this looks so easy!, I was trying to figure out why he was so tired. Then I tried it, I was exhausted after just the five mintue warm up. The music is fun, the dances are fun, and it is like your in a gym with other people. Love it!:)

I have both. Zumba kicks butt and the your fitness evolved is like having a personal trainer in your home. I recomend both and dance central!!!!!

I recently got the xbox kinect and I LOVE the Biggest Loser game. It does kick your butt from the start. I have been struggling with my weight loss because i feel off of the boat and started a week ago with this game to get back on track and I lost 7lbs in that week.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.

        My surgery was 10/19. #40 down since surgeon pre op visit. Getting close to end of soft foods. I think only issue going to regular foods is portion size. So far trying a new food every day. With no issues.
