Thank you to Ubisoft for providing me with a copy of Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 and sponsoring this fitness diary series. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.
I get sent a lot of workout DVDs and "exergames" and the first version of Your Shape: Fitness Evolved was definitely my favorite of the bunch. It was the easiest to follow, it had the best variety of workouts and we liked the Gym Games for recreational fun.
So I was psyched to get to try out the latest version of the Ubisoft program. New this year is improved motion tracking (it really is better); Bollywood, hip-hop and Latin dance aerobics (cha cha!); and just more of everything.
As soon as it arrived, the kid and I popped it in the Xbox. He liked the Wall Breakers -- apparently punching things is a great way to get out your after-school hostilities.
(That's the Wall Breakers above. Blam!)
I liked the jump rope and the Hu-la-las because there were no real jump ropes to trip over or hoops to fall off my hips. Finally, I can do those!
I'll be tracking my progress at the online YourShapeCenter and I'll also be letting you know how I'm doing on the scale, because being accountable to someone other than myself is extra motivating.
