The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout
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.
sluggish or too quick poorly designed controls
First the system doesn't recognize it when entered from an already logged in ID. So the first thing you have to do every day is re-tell it who you are. I hate doing things twice especially when that is one thing that is sOOOO slow. Then about every fourth time it forgets I've created a "person" and makes me do it again. Waste of time. Why doesn't it just use my X-box login and avatar? Stupid game.
The "game" might have great work outs and the like but I am having a hard time getting over it being hard to control. On some options it takes forever for the system to respond to a request. I find it hard to hold my hand steady over the option long enough for it to accept it. If I slide off it starts its slow process all over again.
On other controls when one highlights the option, the system doesn't even give the person enough time to read what that particular control means before it activates and goes there. Spend much time going back and re-doing.
It even has a hard time reading the Kinect. There is an option to calibrate but choosing it never does. It just goes straight to "what do you want to do today". Doing floor exercises it really has a hard time reading the Kinect. I can see the Kinect profile and it looks perfect but the game doesn't like it. So the trainer ends up giving stupid commands.
Sometimes I wish it would just shut up and let me do the exercises. "That's perfect just like a yoga master" Gag gag gag.
The worst thing is there seems to be no systematic way to end. Choose the "X" and it doesn't go back to the system it just goes back and asks what to do next.
Almost every other day it forgets I was logged in the day before. Can't keep a good record because it is constantly forgetting. right now it doesn't remember what I did yesterday. Most annoying. Guess I wouldn't be so upset had I only paid $1.50 for it.
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.
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!
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!
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!!!
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.
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.
What a workout!
I got this to help me with my weight loss journey. Right now I'm just doing the 20 minute workout. I am always sweating by the end. I encourage those wanting to lose weight to get this.
This really works!
Xbox live seems to be pushing your shape but IDK why? This is a much better workout game by far. The routines will absolutely burn you up and the diet and lifestyle tips are great. If you are looking for a way to really utilize the kinect as a means of excercise than look no further.
