Xbox Kinect offers a lot of different fitness games for you to choose from. Of course, not all games are created equally. With this in mind, here are the top five “must have” fitness games for Xbox Kinect.
Dance Central 2
Dance Central 2 has a fitness mode wherein you can dance along with the game. It will even track how many calories you are burning and keep track of it over time. This is a great way to learn some hot dance moves while getting a good workout too.
Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012
Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 is great Xbox Kinect game for those who are in search of a traditional workout regimen. However, the nice thing about choosing this over a traditional class or DVD is that the Xbox will actually tell you how accurate you are in following the movements. Also, since your silhouette is on the screen where you can see it, you will be able to compare it to what the virtual trainer is doing.
The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout
The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout has an add-on that will allow you to play against the actual contestants on this show. This is great for those who are fans of the show and looking to lose some weight themselves. With this Xbox game you will get an intense workout.
UFC Personal Trainer
UFC Personal Trainer is an intense workout. It starts you off with a fitness test, and then assigns you to the correct level based upon your level of fitness. Even at the beginner level you’ll be pushed really hard. While this isn’t a fancy game, it is definitely an exhausting and strenuous workout game.
Kung Fu High Impact
Kung Fu High Impact is not actually an exercise game. It’s actually a fighting game that is quite similar to Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat. However, in Kung Fu High Impact you are the one doing the fighting. A cartoon character or an avatar doesn’t represent you. Instead, there is actually a real-time video image of you interacting within the gaming world. Herein you’ll have a lot of fun kicking and punching. In fact, you probably won’t even realize that you’re getting a great aerobic workout while playing this Xbox game.
