Your Shape Fitness Evolved is a Kinect-based fitness game for Xbox 360 released in November 2010. Unlike EA Sports and Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout, Your Shape Fitness is more fun friendly. It includes family-friendly mini-games and a personal trainer designed to help the user meet their specific fitness goals. Also featured is yoga, martial arts, and a real-time precise tracking system that offers immediate feedback for everything done. There isn’t advanced performance tracking (Ultimate) or a heart-rate monitor (EA). Overall critics say Your Shape Fitness Evolved is like watching a fitness-channel program, but with added interactive elements.

#your_shape_fitness_evolved alright, I just did another workout, this time I had my heart rate monitor on to see the accuracy of the game, and to also gauge just how good of a workout I'm actually getting.

15 minute program: Game says 75 calories. Heart rate monitor says 230.
Tai Chi program: Game says 7 calories. Heart rate monitor says 100.

So obviously either the game is dramatically undercounting the calories burned, or my heart rate monitor is overcounting. Considering my monitor is touching my chest and measuring my actual heart rate, I'm inclined to go with that.

So the two takeaways are that the game is really undercounting calories burned, and it's actually giving a really good workout! Looking at my heart rate it was consistently above the 80% range, and often in the 90%+

It's not as hardcore as something like #p90x or Insanity, but it's pretty damn good.

Overall my heart rate monitor for the 36 minutes I worked out says I burned 560 calories (I did the training program twice). Not bad at all.

#your_shape_fitness_evolved just spent an hour with this and burned 200 calories. This was between a mix of different activities. Doing an actual "workout" activity I burned 76 calories in 14 minutes, which actually isn't too bad.
