Rated 9 out of 10 by Kimberly123 Fight the Fat!!
This is truly a great workout! I only have done light workouts for 20 or 30 minutes and every time I am sweating like crazy and truly felt the aching muscles. My very first time, I was whooped! My whole body was shaky and my muscles were feeling it! But as quickly as day 2, I felt like I had more stamina, and it made me feel good. The only two issues are space and the awkward menus. You need a large amount of space for this game! I have about 6x4 feet of space to play in and I am unable to do any floor exercises. It just wont read me, not sure why the kinect sensor doesnt move for those ones but it just doesnt I suppose. The other thing is the menus are very awkward. The options are all so close and very small for a Kinect game. I often go into the wrong section because it moves so quickly and overpasses the option :/ All in all, if you are wanting to lose some weight and need a motivator, this is your game! The trainers are talking you through it and you feel good after you finish a workout.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Magic Wow what a workout!
I got the Kinect for Xmas and i couldn't wait to play Kinect Adventures or Kinect Sports. I got the BL to see how workout games on this would be. I was a bit skeptical because i have owned every workout game for the wii and while tyhey are fun and i lost some weight with Wii fit it didn't do what i wanted it to do. I can say that BL is exactly what i need. This is a great workout with good set of breaks and it tires you out with out making you want to quit. The exercises are perfect. The body analisys wasn't the best but you can change the numbers so that they are more accurate so that isn't to much of a problem. I didn't play any of the other workout games yet so i can't compair and I am not a fan of the BL on TV but I love this game and will be using it for a while.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Sarah20057 Great game for someone who wants to get healthy!!
This game offers so much to the people that are willing to utilize its features. There is one area where it lists many good recipes, tips, and advice for getting into shape, and losing weight. It's hard at first if you don't typically workout or stay in shape, but it gets easier. The controls are easy, and as long as you read, you can figure out what to do. The trainers tell you how to do the excercises, and tell you if you need to tweak something. They also have many yoga poses included with the program. They have the first weigh in, plus weekly weigh ins just like the show. I think that for someone who puts forth a little common sense, and wants to lose weight or tone up, this is the game for you.
Rated 9 out of 10 by MagnumPi69 Just what I was looking for...
This game is just what I was looking for when I started my weight loss mission after New Years. I've lost 12 lbs in 4 weeks (which is not quite as much as I would've liked, but it's still 12 lbs). I'm on a 12 week program on Moderate difficulty, working out 4 times a week. But this game is so addicting, I end up doing circuits on my rest days. However, I have had problems at times with the game recognizing my movements. It usually happens on the roundhouse series left and right. But with other exercises I've learned that stepping forward or back usually helps. Overall though i am very pleased with the product and here's to the next 8 weeks.

So, being a really big fan of workout games in general. I was really disappointed with this release. Trust me, I didn't play the game for a minute and come to this conclusion. I gave it a fair shot over a two week period. First off, the sensor reads you extremely poorly. There were times I wash matching the trainer and it would not pick up. During some of the challenge games, It will not read your kicks. The graphics were extremely generic and the trainers have about a 5 sentence motivational vocabulary. All in all after the two weeks of following the workouts, I found out that I had wasted fifty dollars.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Kimberly123 This game blows unless you have a BUNCH of space!
As said in the title you need ALOT of space to play at least 6ft by 6ft. I lose nearly every challenge because the sensor wont read me. And I lose alot of score on the fitness routines as well. I'll be following it perfectly and it will say something about how I am not trying, then I will get angry and do something random and occasionally the bars will turn green again showing that I am doing it right when clearly I am not... If you have the space for it, it can be a great game though. I have calibrated and calibrate my sensor bar but I cant do lunge side to side exercises or anything laying down with my space :(
Rated 9 out of 10 by k69k Awesome workout!!
I just started my workout routine and this is what i do, The Biggest Loser on Kinect!! It is great! For some reason it is easier to say i am gonna go work out on my kinect than it is to just go out and do it! would recommend to anyone who wants to work out but always gives up. It keeps a calender for when you workout which is great and it does a body analizer so you can see you progression throughtout the workout period. You can set your own plan. I chose 20 min a day for 4 days over a 12 week period. but you can make this however you want!! GREAT GAME love it!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 Good Workout
The exercises are great for all shapes and sizes. They will kick your butt. However, the interface is not very intuitive and is difficult to navigate. It is not always clear what you should do next or how to get there. The in game trainers are just as annoying as the TV show but are at the same time a good motivation to keep going. Overall, if you want a good exercise program this is worth the price. Save some money and buy the pre-owned version. If you are looking for a game buy Kinect Sports but it will not work you as hard as this title.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Soso Two Thumbs Up!!!!
I love this game!!! I've been working out with it for sometime now and see and feel the results. This is the best exercise game EVER! In the beginning you do a trial routine and from there it tells you what you need to work on and designs a whole fitness routine for you. You decided how many days a week, how much time, and the pace. It tracks your movements to the T (as long as your kinect is at least 6-8 ft from you) I have recommended this game to sooo many people and have not heard one complaint!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Equin Great!!!
I bought this a few days ago and it's great! I read lots of mixed reviews. I have not had a problem with it. I did not have any issues setting it up. It has lots of great works outs to choose from,calander for daily work outs, freeplay and lots of other options. It's like having the trainer in your own home. It encourages you while you work out and definetly makes you work hard. If you want a great work out in the privacy of your own home this is the game to buy! I love this game!
