Your Shape: Fitness Evolved for the Xbox 360 Kinect is one of the products I'm looking forward to the most this fall. It's the perfect mix of three of my favorite things: Working Out, Playing Videogames, and Men's FItness Magazine. And knowing that it comes from Ubisoft gives me some confidence that it's going to be solid.
I mentioned a few weeks ago that I got to try it out at BlogHer, and I was really impressed. And today I saw some new screen shots Ubisoft published, to announce the partnership with Men's Fitness and Women's Fitness.
Ubisoft released details of the game, that include keeping track of your stats, like calories and scores. And for the non-timid, all of your stats are uploaded seamlessly online and can be shared with friends and family. I love that you can create challenges among friends and help each other reach fitness goals.
The game comes with hundreds of exercises, and there will be regular downloadable content releases from Xbox LIVE. I can't wait to challenge my friends using Xbox LIVE Multiplayer. Getting in shape will never be the same! I can't wait to play it with my kids, but this time, by myself...
From the Press Release:
The programs from Men’s Health include “The Sleeve-Busting Arms Workout,” and “The Ultimate Men’s Health Fat Loss Workout.” The workout programs from Women’s Health include “The Perfect Legs and Butt Workout,” “The Toned Arms and Shoulders Workout,” and “The Skinny Jeans Workout”. All workouts are designed so that users can integrate free weights into the programs. Read more...
This post is my own opinion, and I have not received any compensation or products from Ubisoft, nor are they a client of my firm.
