I was taken back when I noticed this on the shelves of my local gaming store. So I read the back, came home and did a little on line research.

It was less than 24 hours after that, when I decided to purchase this product.

This is a great “game” that takes getting in shape very seriously. You answer some questions at the beginning and do some exercises to allow the trainer, Maya, to get a feel for your overall health.

Once you’ve done that, Maya has created your personalized training schedule, eating schedule and I was ready to go!

During my first workout, Maya gave plenty of encouragement (based on how I was answering questions throughout the workout)to keep me going. The bottom of the screen displays the workout that you are doing along with the next one coming up, including rests and water breaks. She can incorporate a stepper, flexibility ball, hand weights and a heart monitor in the workout.

The variety of the workout was AMAZING and I sweating more after 30 minutes with Maya that I ever have doing other videos.

This is definitely worth the $34 price tag just to have your own personal trainer in your Xbox whenever you want one.

Overall, this is only a 4 star product since it doesn’t really tell you how much you “need” to lose and how you are going to get there. I also would have liked a BMR calculation with calories taken in so I can see what I need to burn off to lose some weight.

Perfect for Moms or those who don’t have time/$ for the gym!, October 22, 2004

This review is from: Yourself Fitness (Video Game)

I am a WAHM of one 14 month old; I gaining a LOT of weight during my pregnancy (no thanks to the women who kept saying “You’re too small!” as they shoved cake and chips in my face!) and I’ve had a heck of a time getting it off (even though I eat VERY healthy). I used to be VERY active and loved running and/or going to the gym, but we can’t afford a gym membership (or a babysitter on a daily basis so I could actually GO to the gym and I’m too tired after my husband gets home to go to the gym anyway) OR one of those outrageously expensive jogging strollers (for those prices, they should get better ratings!). I’ve tried baby & mom yoga (a book)- that didn’t work for me. I purchased a DVD on Amazon, Pilates for Everyone I think it was called- that was better than the yoga book, but I found that the gap between the beginner and intermediate workouts was WAY too wide for me (the beginner workouts got too easy and the intermediate workouts, yeah, I couldn’t even make it through the first five minutes of one). This is the BEST thing I’ve found so far and I am LOVING it! 🙂

So let me break it down.
Things I LOVE about this:
1. Custimization- you enter your weight, target weight (if you need to), resting/active BPM, flexibility, etc, even the excersize equipment you already own and it will tell you what your MAIN goal should be (mine being weight loss, obviously). You enter days of the week you can work out and how much time you can spend working out on those days.
2. Tempo- It doesn’t seem to be repetitive at all, like my Pilates DVD was, it never got boring.
3. Scroll bar- There’s a scroll bar on the bottom of the screen as you do a work out that tells you what you’re doing and shows you what is up next as well. For example, it shows a picture of two free-weights before the next segment if you need to use them during the next excersize. And there is a clock counting down the time (which I REALLY need, I need to be able to see that the time is going DOWN and I’m making progress) and it tells you the level of difficulty of the exersize that you’re doing- both under the time and on the scroll bar- one line for level one, two bars for level two, you get it.
4. Tutorial- You can pause and review the tutorial at ANY time, as needed.
5. The Personal Instructor- She virtual and she doesn’t look like freaking Barbi, THANK GOODNESS! 🙂 (In fact, she looks a lot like me BEFORE I had my daughter 🙂 )
6. Reinforcement- Before you start your workout for the day, you can change what the personal instructor has chosen for you (if she recomends cardio, and you aren’t feeling up to it, you can change it to some other area of focus). She asks you how you’re feeling both before you start your workout and in between at intermitent points so if you need MORE positive reinforcement, she will do more “rooting”. 🙂
7. Recipes and meal plans and shopping lists, oh my! – I don’t use these, I’m vegetarian, no sugar, and I’m decreasing my intake of dairy products so I have my own healthy recipes customized to fit MY life and budget, BUT these are a great idea and I may actually flip through the 4500 (gasp!) recipes for something new.
8. She KNOWS if you missed a day! Yup, I guess if you miss a day, it will show up on your “progress”, which may annoy some people, but I feel guilty VERY easily so if I miss a day I’d feel guilty because not only would I know, the virtual Personal Instructor would know it too, so she’d remind me of it. And that would work to my advantage so I wouldn’t skip a day unless I was really sick or something.
9. The “LEVELS” – I think this is so cool. Like most other video games, the more time you spend doing it, the more levels open up to reward you. In this case, the “levels” are the spaces where your personal trainer works out (yeah, I’d like to work out in a field surrounded by green grass and waterfalls for REAL!) but it makes for a nice change of scenery.
10. Calories – At the end of your work out, it tells you how many calories you’ve burned! That is SO important for me because I need to see improvement.
11. Workouts – I get bored easily, and my target is weightloss so when the personal trainer recomends I do cardio, it’s not just cardio- in my cardio workouts there are some cardio weight training exersizes too, which is nice so I don’t get bored! There are also water breaks after strenuous steps and stretch breaks after each cardio weight set and the workout time includes stretching at the end. ALSO even though my main goal is weight loss, the personal trainer doesn’t suggest that I do just cardio for every single workout. For example, if I do a 30 minute workout, the first 10-15 minutes will be cardio, and the remaining workout could be upper/lower body strength, flexibility, core body strength, etc. So I end up with a very well-rounded week of workouts.
12. The “camera angle” changes throughout the workout so you…
