I'd like to do this too, but I don't have Gold membership - I have the free xbox live connection though. Is this enough, or do I need to get the Gold upgrade? I love this game and would love to be involved in a challenge - at the moment its just me in my living room and a challenge would help when I'm having a 'shall I/ shan't I' moment!

I'm in. Hopefully it'll motivate me to do something other than Wall Breaker, which I'll admit, I am slightly addicted to!

CenntenialMom and LynnBaum, I can't find your xbox live gamertags posted on this message boards. Can you please let me know what they are so I can add you? Also you may want to post them on the thread called "Gamer Buddies - Share Your Tag/User Name Here " so that others can find them.

Also, in case anyone is concerned about this, it looks like the same YourShape website is used whether you have the original Fitness Evolved version, or the Fitness Evolved 2012 version, so we can challenge each other across the two versions.

Hi guys! Sorry it took me a few days to get back to this...I forgot where I put the post :/

I agree with what MAEINBELGIUM and a couple others have noted: the calorie counts in this game are low, and expecting to burn more than 350/week (according to the game) is going to be setting some people up for failure. I probably won't even make that much, since I don't want to use this as my only exercise, but, hey, its a challenge right? :)

I will send xbox live friend requests to those who have opted in, and set things up. I think what you will see is first my friend request on the xbox live website, and then a request to join the challenge on the YourShape website. I haven't done this before, so let me know if the challenge request isn't obvious. There seems to be limit of about 5 people per challenge on the YourShape site, so I may have to create more than one to accomodate everyone. The two criteria that YourShape allows for the challenge are number of calories and length of time. Unless I get objections, I'm going to set it up for 4 weeks, so that would be a total of 1400 calories over 4 weeks. It would be great if we could have some more detail in there, but that's how they've built it for now.

Good luck everyone!

So, I was playing YSFE today, and it took me almost 45 minutes to get to 100 calories. Obviously, a YSFE calorie does not equal a real-life calorie. Then again, it also thinks my heart rate is around 125 bpm when it is actually averaging 158.

So, 500 calories in a week is maybe too much to be realistic for most people. Especially people with a full-time job (like me, thank goodness) or other responsibilities. But 50 calories could be done in 20-30 minutes, depending on what activities one does. There are 7 days in a week, so maybe 350 calories in a week is a realistic goal. Who's on board for that?

I love the block kicking and punching thing. Interesting 500 calories or that is a lot for 1 week. It would be a great goal.

Find my free blog chatthefat for the 27 rules I live by.
Thanks

I'm up for it!

Motivation doesn't last but neither does bathing, that's why it is recommended daily.

I would like to participate. How about 500 calories in 7 days - very challenging but doable, I think.

I am thinking of setting up a challenge in this game. Would anyone be interested in participating? If so, what do you think would be a reasonable calorie-burning goal? I am pretty sure that the calorie counts that this game keeps are about half of what they should be, but since we will all be tracking in the same game and its all for fun anyway, who cares?
