UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System
Words are not enough for this game!!!
I just started working out and have a hard time sticking to it because i get bored. This game sucked me in the first day i used it. I was sore for days. It never got boring and I pushed me to my limits. There are different levels from beginner to advanced. I really love this game. I know some reviews said there was a glitch and it freezes off and on but I took someones advice and downloaded it on my hard drive just in case. Haven't had any problems. Once in a blue moon it will miss your move but nothing major just means you do it one more time which with workout is fine. The only problem I had was during stretching on one exercise it likes to think I am trying to pause the game.. That gets frustrating but I learned to pay attention to pause button more and when I see it thinking I just adjust myself a little so it doesn't register. Highly recommend this game and this is coming from someone who is unmotivated and can be lazy lol. Its really fun.
Awesome workout game, better than ultimate fitness
This game is the perfect workout game for those looking to get back in shape & build muscle. I've had the game for about 4/5 months, completed a 30 & 60 day program, currently working on another 60 day program, I've lost 14 pounds & built muscle. You can take pictures of yourself in the game & monitor your weight, calories burned, specific areas of body worked out, etc by using graphs and other tracking mechanisms in the game. You periodically take a fitness test and the game raises/lowers the reps based on your personal fitness level. As for those reviews complaining about the trainer repeating the same phrases, if it bothers you that much turn the phrases off. Excersing in general is repititious, you may not do the same excercises, but you will get your heart rate going & you will be sweating. Overall a great game, I've played Ultimate Fitness which is geared to men & women and did the same exercises day in & out. Each day with UFC Personal Trainer is different, you don't really know what your getting into until you start, which I think is great.
Kicks your butt, short term and long term
I once weighed 375 pounds (I'm 6'7"). And before I started on this game's program I got myself down to 260...I've been using it for seven months now and can honestly say that I've dropped below 250, but I've built up muscles in places I never had before. There are some days when I blow through the sets and am simply sweaty, and others where I can't wait for it to be over cause I'm dying. I'm 40 years old, so I'm no spring chicken. My only beef with the game may be more Kinect-based. Being so tall I sometimes have issues (on Arnold Presses for instance) of it not seeing me hit the top, and other times when I'm kicking at it (Teeps esp.) or doing Sumo squats where it doesn't pick up my movements properly. That could be the way my room is set or my height. I don't know. I just chalk it up to a few extra reps (though sometimes it times out), and at least I'm still getting the exercise in. Def worth the money, and I def stand by it. I just wish the Kinect always saw me just fine so that I can get through the routines in a faster manner when I need to. Congrats if you're trying to stay healthy! And good luck. If I can do it, you can do it!
Great, but has issues.
I'm a 31 year old Army vet/couch potato/vidiot. I got the game to get back in shape and I must say, this game will get you there and keep you motivated. Im only nine days into a 30 day CUT WEIGHT program and I've lost 5 lbs. The problem that I have now is that the autosave doesn't save after each session. As a result, I'm having missed days show up on my workout calendar that I worked my tail off for AND I'm stuck doing the same workout again and again. This glitch really kills motivation, especially after having to do the same workout a few times in a row
As a Krav Maga instructor, I have to say, color me impressed. For folks that don't have access to a pull up bar or gym, this could be a real boon. Rounds of shadow boxing while work up a sweat while increasing proficiency. Not bad....
This game is no joke. It's not a gimmick. The workouts were designed by the National Academy of Sports Medicine with MMA training methods in mind. It is certified by NASM and the UFC.
This game is excellent for getting in shape. I started the 30 day strength program and I was impressed. The first workout after the warm up was push ups. Even though he's virtual, the trainer was relentless. If you complete the required number of reps he demands that you do extra reps. My first workout lasted about 30min including warm up and cool down and included push ups, lunges, side lunges, upright rows, and Arnold presses. At the end I was exhausted and in a good way. I can't wait for my next workout!
Get off your couch and lose that flab.
Note: I had some dropped reps when I did the fitness test and then again when I began the first workout. After making sure my body was positioned correctly in front of the Kinect sensor and keeping a steady pace it hasn't been an issue.

Has the potential to be good, but who knows?!
I love this game, I just picked it up a couple of days ago. With only 2 workouts done so far in the 30 day muscle building program, I feel stronger already. Incredibly sore too! I also have Your Shape Evolved 2012, which I really like too, but if you are serious about getting into top shape UFC trainer is it.
As far as the annoying trainer dialogue, has anyone tried to work out with P90X listening to Tony Horton? THAT is annoying.
and the value of this game is awesome. Around 30 bucks for a pretty much unlimited amount of premade and custom routines rather than over $100 for 10-12 workouts recycled over and over again for 90 days.
great exercise game
i must say following the exercises in this game gave me a good workout, but some movements the kinnect sometimes couldnt detect it properly. Thats pretty much the part thats not so good with these movement games. Game can last pretty long time if u want to keep doing exercises.
THIS GAME MEANS BUSINESS
This is truly a no non-sense workout video game. I feel funny calling it a video game, because the results are real. I have been working out using UFC as part of my routine for one month now. Since I have a thing about scales, I cannot tell you how much I've lost in numbers, but I see great results in the mirror and my clothes are looser, and the ones that were tight, I can now wear. So, that is enough for me to know that I have definitely lost weight. Also, I feel stronger and more flexible. The energy is through the roof. I would recommend listening carefully to the trainer's videos before using this game as you can easily injure yourself if you don't do the exercises properly. You don't need a mansion's room for the Kinect to pick it up, but I would recommend at least 10-15 feet in perimeter to get the best workout.
