My partner and I bought my stepson (and us all) the Kinect for xmas (already had the Xbox 360) which came with Kinect Adventures, Gunslinger and Fruit Ninja. Stepson, with xmas money, bought Powerup Heroes.
I actually bought it SO that my SS and I could workout together in a fun way. Neither of us has been very successful in trying to do exercise for it's own sake, and the games are wonderfully active. I get to use it more than him because he's at his mum's half the week (he he he).

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose.

Hubby got me Game Party In Motion and it's pretty awful. The tracking is so bad that I can't stand playing some of the games. It's too frustration.

I have a gift certificate for Best Buy- just need to decide what game to get with it.

Hi All. We got the whole system for Christmas and are still figuring it out. It's been a lot of fun though! I think our biggest problems are the dog and 2-year-old walking between the player(s) and sensor. LOL
We have:
-Kinect adventure (came w/ it. Unopened)
-Kinect Joyride. Love this game, especially my 4-year-old
-Big League Sports. The guys in my life love this one. I think I've only tried golf so far. It was fun.
-Cabela's Adventure Camp. This one is FUN! We originally got it because we used to race stand-up jet skis and this has that. But our son wanted to try mountain bike racing on it too and we quickly discovered that is a lot of fun and a good workout since you run in place the whole time to make your bike go faster. Plus you jump over stuff. A couple of rounds of that and you are sweating from head to toe. Kayaking is fun too and I felt that in my shoulders the next day. We don't do everything on here yet and somethings we will not do with kids until they are older. I'm not nuts about a 4-year-old doing skeet shooting, ya know?
-Just Dance Kids 2. My 2-year-old loves to dance to Jingle Bells. So far that's about it. And her version of dancing is jumping up and down continuously. It looks like it could be fun but we haven't explored it that much yet. We are still stuck on Jingle Bells. LOL
-Kinect Sports season 1 I think...it's the one with boxing on it. My son LOVES the track and field stuff on it. He likes bowling too, but is really into track. Track is fun, but holy cow does boxing give you a workout. I felt that for 2 days! And I'm a half marathoner and triathlete, so I'm no stranger to working out. LOL
-Once upon a monster (sesame street) but we haven't tried it yet. We have been more interested in games that get our kids running and jumping and burning off a lot of energy. But we do want to try it out soon.

I have been thinking about getting Your Shape Evolved 2012 or Jillian's adventure....but since I already run, bike, swim, lift weights and use the versaclimber, I'm just not sure how much I'd use these. I don't want to spend the $50 if I'm not going to use it.
We are not on xbox Live yet. We should be, but we aren't.

Hey all, I got Your Shape 2012 for Christmas. It is amazing. I love that I can mix it up. Running, toning with and without weights, dance classes, yoga.
The best thing to do for tracking your calories and time is to sign up online. Now if you have a iphone you can get the app for it and see you calories each day there as well. It doesn't show you a total for time worked out but it does show you the time spent in each section, so you have to add that up yourself. Example: Personal Training,12' -4ex, so thats any red exercises, 12 mins total, 4 exercises. Hope that helps anyone having trouble with that (took me a week to figure that out LOL)
We also go Disneyland
Sonic Freeriders
Kinect Sports 2
And my hubby got Battlefield 2 LOL

Hope everyones holidays where great :)

Stay at home mom in Viva Las Vegas

We obtained a couple new games thanks to the holidays as well! we got dance central for our 9 yr old daughter - she wanted it and not DC2 - she demoed both and liked the 1st one better... k1tt3n my work with it , but I doubt I will - that would jsut be WAYYYY to odd looking!
Gunstringer for our middle one - 13 yr old boy - i havent tried it yet, but i think everyone else has?
Kinect Sports 2 - I love this one. I liked the first season, but this one I really like. dani and i played it the other day for about 2 hours straight onthe random games and had a blast. K1tt3n and I played some one night as well, till I kicked her butt in darts :-)

Still have a couple we want - right now at he top of my list is Deepak Chora's Leela. K1tt3n wants Rise of Nightmares. (Zombie killing junkie she is...)

Hi Everyone!!!
We won an Xbox Kinect from a Christmas party raffle. At the moment, the only game we have is the Kinect Adventures along with a few Demos. I am truly enjoying the workouts I get just from having fun. We plan to get the Your Shape Fitness 2012 very soon...

Hi! I just got the Kinect for Christmas. It was actually a gift for my son but i figured i would have santa get me a game just for fun. I got Dance Central 2 and Fitness Evolved. So, i am a runner and decided to take a break after a marathon in October. Both of these games kicked my butt! The Dance game is unbelievably fun. I have been on it pretty much every day. I even got my son to do the Dance and some of the exercises on the Fitness Evolved. I am going to start back running again in a few weeks but am definitely keeping this as a way to ward off typical running doldrums. I think it is a nice way to mix it up! So far i cannot comment on weight loss but it sure is a lot of fun. I am thinking of adding to my dance collection with Lets Dance and some Zumba.

If we all did the things we are capable of doing we would literally astound ourselves.

I got Disneyland Adventure.

I actually walk in places to move around the park instead of moving just my hands to satisfy the Kinect sensor. I really enjoy it because I absolutely love Disneyland and this game is almost a 1 to 1 scale model on where everything is located.

I'm new to using Kinect but I'm excited to get started! I got Your Shape 2012 and Kinect Sports 2 for Christmas this year plus I already have Biggest Loser. I'm thinking about getting the UFC game because I used to love kickboxing (before I gained so much weight) but I'm not sure if I could even do it right now. Is it worth getting if you already have Your Shape?

I got the Kinect for Christmas, with it came 3 games, Gunslinger, Fruit Ninja and Adventures. The best game of all, though, is the one I bought myself, Your Shape Fitness 2012. I never thought I could break a sweat and get such an incredible workout from the Kinect. It works! So excited about beginning my healthy weight-loss journey with Kinect.

Hello all :) I'm new to this team and look forward to joining in more often with all of you.

We got a lot of Xbox games at Christmas but the one for me personally was Jillian Michaels, Fitness Adventure Xbox Kinect game and OMG what a work out it is awesome. I did it on Boxing day and my legs the following day were so sore which is a good thing so I will combine that with my walks and get more of this weight to fall off.

When the biggest looser comes available here in my country I will be getting that and the same with Wipeout. I just have to wait till they get here.

Sadly, I didn't get any new games. So I stole my sister's old ones (hehe). Don't worry I asked first. I tried out dance central (not that in love with it) and did Biggest Loser last night. Biggest Loser kicked my butt! (Literally, they made me do butt kicks). I think I like it - except for the obnoxious controls. P.S. Does anyone know how to get the sensors to read floor exercises better?

My husband and I got an XBOX and Kinect. He mostly plays Dead Island, but we play Kinect Adventures together.
I also got Your Shape 2012 but am having some trouble making it work. I don't like not being able to see my time spent as I have a goal of 60 minutes per day. I did find where I could see it on the Your Shape website, but I am already all over the place it's just another place to have to go look.
I got Zumba Fitness 2 for the Wii and love it. I am considering Biggest Loser after reading the posts on here!
