We just got an xbox one and I love it but since we live in a tiny room with my parents I have no room to play on the Kinect. Have been wanting to but even if I move everything far away I still don't have enough room. I am so ready to move out so I can work out. So far I really like the system though.

Yesterday morning I decided to give the Xbox Fitness channel a whirl and do Jillian Michaels: Ripped in 30. After 9:58 into it, I verbally told my Xbox to pause while I rested on the floor, dying. lol. After about 5 minutes, I decided to jump back into it and this time I make it another 10 minutes before pausing. The screen is telling me my heart rate is 148 bpm, so after another 5 minute break, I continued the rest of the workout. It read that I only burned 109 calories and I took longer than 45 minutes on a 34 minute exercise.

But since my Xbox One was a prize, I'm going to treat it as something I must earn by exercising. I got out a notebook and started another workout log book and I'm going to try a new workouts everyday until I finished their library. I may repeat a few, like yesterdays. I got 4/5 stars and I feel I can reach that goal.

When you watch the videos, there is an image of you on the right hand side following the exercises. It shows the muscles you are using by lighting them up, this is pretty accurate. At one time, I got sloppy on my push-up and the monitor was showing that I was using my back muscles to keep my body up, which was true. It kept praising me or correcting me during the workouts. Some exercises will do a pop-up challenge of what the average score is for your demographic (Age, M/F) in that particular exercise, so you can try to achieve a higher score. I didn't do so well in the push-up category for men aged 36-40. lol

The best thing I found about the Kinect 2.0 is no more moving your hand in front of you to select what you want. I chose to use the controller, but the voice commands are spot on!

When I did my research after, I saw that they sent random emails to Xbox Live users. I suggest that everyone check their email accounts associated with their gamertag. The email will be from Xbox Live. It doesn't mention anything about being a winner on the title of the email, so it's easy to miss. When I saw it, my jaw hit the floor and I thought it was a hoax. I called the number in the email and gave them my verification code and everything was smooth sailing after that. Now is the hardest part... The wait. :)

Interesting. I haven't decided if I am going to get one yet. I might wait a little while and just stick with my current xbox.

I didn't want the new system, but won it anyways. As I did my research after, I found out that buyers will recieve a subscription on their Xbox fitness channel until Dec. '14. This channel will have workout programs by many providers including Beach Bodys Insanity and P90X. The kinect will follow you to ensure you're performing correctly as well as monitering your heart rate without a physical monitor. Naturally, I call B.S.-loney! But after I recieve it, this will be the first thing I try. Here's a link using Insanity - www.youtube.com/watch?v=jPyjvfLZdF8
Here's another link discussing how it tracks heartbeat - www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDTqx1Zi-n0
