I think it's a good supplement to regular exercise. I also play the dancing games for cardio sometimes. But I have my own set of rules for what counts as exercise. It has to be at least 10 consecutive minutes and I march in place in between songs.
I think you still would need to develop a strength training and stretching routine in addition to the cardio you do with the Kinect.
I like kinect for exercise. I love the dancing games! I also like kinect sports but no one ever wants to play with me :(

It's fun and I think it can measure body movements better than the Wii. However it is very expensive if all you want is to exercise , at least I feel it is. Also you want to make sure your new apartment has the appropriate amount of space, the Kinect recommends more than the Wii.
Do you think it is a good substitute for conventional exercise? I am currently unemployed and I am also in a new apartment and barely know any of my neighbours. It's likely I'll set up a work-from-home business eventually anyway which will mean I'm at home a lot of the time. I think in my case the Kinect seems like a good form of exercise. Playing on it for half an hour got me quite worn out, more so than the Nintendo Wii.
