Thanks, I do alot of wall breaker, especially as a warm up. I will put it in as Wii boxing. And the calorie count always seems really low, so thanks for the tip on using SparkPeople's defaults.

I have been using YS:FE for exercise for a couple years now, and this is how I track it - If I am doing something like wall breaker for example I track it as Wii Boxing. If I am doing jump rope I track it as jump rope. If I am doing another more lengthy routine (I personally like the next to longest legs and the 3rd from the end glutes) I track it as either high intensity or low intensity cardio. I track all the boot camps as high intensity cardio. (I choose low or high depending on the amount of time the graph of the routine shows the target heart rate as higher - or you can use both high and low intensity based on that graph too)

Also worth noting is that the number of calories burned with the exercises are really off, especially in the 2012 version. I suggest entering them directly into sparkpeople, without inputting the calories you supposedly burned to get a better read on how many calories you are burning.

I have the app but I need to get back into my Your Shape routine. I've been so lax in NOT doing it.

I've used the game and the app, but I noticed the Playfit app doesn't record the same calorie count that you get from Your Shape 2012. They are working on fixing that glitch, but the playfit app is wonderful for trying to keep track of calories burned in at least 10 of the available Kinect titles.... Kinect Adventures is not in the list. :(

Its a free download called the Kinect Play Fit App

There is a thread on here about the app itself

(hopefully I added that link properly)

As others stated on the above thread I find the readings to be on the low side.

I use a heart rate monitor and enter my activity manually giving it the title of what I'm doing and the time and the calories burned (according to the monitor).

I have to get using my Kinect more consistently......actually I have to get exercising more consistently

Hubby says that they have a download that will keep track of your exercise and how many calories that you burn. He can't remember what it's called. I don't have it. so I can't tell you how it works.
sorry

Please, Please watch and listen for motorcycles while your out and about!

Peace, Love & Hugs

I'm new to using the Kinect, and I use Your Shape Fitness Evolved, 2012 a few times a day. Mostly short little 10 minutes playing wall breaker or stomp it. And I do 1 or 2 of the toning exercises a day too. Should I be tracking any of this in the fitness tracker on SparkPeople. I'm still learning all the features of this game, so I haven't done much of the lengthier routines. But how do I enter it into the tracker? It would seem like a lot of work to remember each exercise in those routines.
