Synopsis and Features
Exercising can be a boring activity, but not with Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012. With over 90 hours of fun-filled activities, Fitness Evolved has an array of different workouts that range from simple dance exercises to cardio boxing to improve your overall health. Fitness Evolved 2012 allows you to design your own workout sessions. This enables you to design a workout that is unique to you, allowing you to burn maximum number of calories in minimum number of minutes. You can plan and opt for exercises that will help you tone your arms, legs, back and more.
Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 was developed and published by Ubisoft. The game requires the Kinect sensor to play with. The sensor is essential to track your hand and body movements, allowing the cameras to sync your body movements smoothly with the in-game animations. The final result can be seen in the form of your on-screen avatar moving just like you do as you don’t need any controller to do the activities; the Kinect sensor would be enough.
Fitness classes act as a single player campaign in the game and include Boot Class and Jump rope. The game even has yoga routines, along with Zen techniques that can be practised effectively. If you just want to burn calories, you can do it easily in the game by using simple activities such as Wallbreaker, Stack ‘em and Kick ‘em.
If you like dancing more than exercising as a fitness regime, Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012 has dance classes that range from Latin, Hip-hop, African to even Bollywood dance routines. The digital personal trainer even has a correctional advice system that says where you missed out when you were exercising. Different commands will be voiced by the in-game voice activated program like try to get lower or lift your knees higher, guiding you to exercise better.
You can track your progress about how you are getting your body into perfect shape with the use of different apps offered on the game website. Using your iPhone, Android or Windows mobile, you can track your everyday progress and improve it as required. The multiplayer modes in the game allow you to team up with a family member or a friend from work. This is an interesting addition as you can challenge your friends and see how well you score against them on the statistics chart.
You can even use an app called Shape Center. This allows you to monitor your progress online and you can even see where you rank among other players from across the world. There are 2 DLCs available for Fitness Evolved 2012 called The Toned Body Program and Cardio Boxing Platinum. The updates, DLCs and patches can be downloaded directly from Xbox Marketplace.
A minimum distance of 6 ft is required between the player and the Kinect sensor when you are playing the game. You will require more space if extra players join in. It is advised to place the gaming console in a living room or the main hall to provide more freedom for your hand and body movements. Ensure that the room has proper and even lighting. This will benefit the camera, allowing it to easily track and capture your every body movement and give you a seamless and entertaining gaming experience.
