Finally, a Fun and Interactive Fitness Game!
, December 7, 2009
This review is from: Your Shape - Nintendo Wii (Video Game)
Now, I used to classify myself as a fitness junkie. I would eat healthy, go to the gym on a regular basis, and even go running. However, with work, running errands and general "craziness" of life, I did lose sight of this goal a bit. However, I have to hand it to "Your Shape", a game that's really got me excited about becoming fit again!
Let's face it - becoming "too busy" to exercise happens to everyone. What I really like about "Your Shape" is that it customizes your workouts to fit them to your schedule. Some people complained that the encouragements from Jenny McCarthy were unneeded, but I actually found them kind of motivating. I don't have the extra money for a personal trainer right now, which is why I think this game really appeals to me.
I also really like the targeted exercises. Some days when I feel particularly "fat" around the middle, I can do some targeted core training that will help tone and shape my abs. If I'm looking for some relaxing Yoga on a Sunday morning, "Your Shape" can deliver this as well! Overall, I found it verstatile, customizable and pretty much exactly what I'd want out of a fitness game.
I actually read over a lot of the reviews, and saw that a lot of people were complaining that this game was "exactly like (insert fitness game here)". What I found is that Your Shape took all of the BEST features of other fitness games, tied them up in a user-friendly interface, and added a super-sensitive motion camera to boot! As a fitness game, I'd have to say that this is the most successful in appealing to time-constrained people (like me) who need extra motivation to get into shape. I highly recommend this game. :)
