Does anyone use their Kinect to workout with? If so what games do you use? I have some regular games I play and I'm tired at the end but I was looking into the fitness ones. Just didn't know which to go with.

I love my xbox!
I use the new Zumba Rush. I didn't have the original, but after looking at the second version game on youtube I bought it. You can do individual songs or timed workout classes. You can even pick your songs for your class. I highly recommend this one.

I also like the format of Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012. The game positions you in a square so unlike other games it doesn't lose your movements. Visually the game is phenomenal! There are MANY types of activities from boxing to dancing to yoga to bellydance to pilates. This is well worth adding to your library.

I also have the Black Eyed Peas Experience. Its less of a continuous workout, but it does have me sweating and the graphics are very good.

I have EA Sports Active 2 which I like the least out of my workout programs. It loses me too often and each time it does you have to sign in again. Well by that time the heart rate has gone done along with my enthusiasm. Otherwise the format is very well made, but that doesn't matter if you can't use it.

Edit-One thing that I did purchase points for was Fruit Ninja. That is a very fun game to play. It's all arms, but you can work up a sweat.

I could not get with the "just dance" game. Matter of fact I just sent that off to amazon for trade. My girlfriend feels the same way about zumba, but her teenage daughter loves it.

I LOVE XBOX KINECT!

We started with the Dance Central game which is fun and all but it doesn't always give you exactly the workout you need. So on Xmas we got the Your Shape 2012 Fitness Evolved game and we love it. (when I say we, I mean my mom. I just use it with her whenever I'm home from the city). It has many different levels of difficulty and the workouts realllyyyy make you sweat!
