YO:30 XBox Fitness

Hi All,

As you know I am a self confessed geek, which now a days seems to be a normal thing really. I am a total gamer girl and I love my Tomb Raider and Assassins Creed, but the thing I am loving at the most moment is how much more you can get from your games console in 2016.  

"Work out smarter with famous trainers"

My current favourite is the Yoga workout with trainer Jake Ferree. I have been doing this every other day for three weeks and my stomach feels so much more toned. I couldn't believe the difference after only a few workouts. That being said I am not in bad shape so I really just wanted to tone up. However the treadmill just wasn't doing it for my stomach and arms.

I've tried several exercise classes, I did try yoga once before but the classroom was cold and draughty. Boxercise was a large class and a little intimidating. The thing I did stick with for years was Jazzercise, only because I love to dance. I lost very little weight and my ankles were swollen after the high intensity jumping around (you don't have to, but as I said I love dancing) Eventually I stopped that too.

The thing I have stuck with is the YO:30 programme for  XBox Fitness which is available on the XBox One. The Kinect camera scans you and monitors your progress. You get real feedback about how you are moving and how you can get more from your workout.

I can't believe that three sessions in and my tummy feels so much tighter, I feel so much more relaxed and am completely obsessed. I go at my own pace, no one is watching me collapse in a heap and its not a big deal if I do.

I can hear you saying "what do you mean it scans you?". Just that the kinect camera scans your body and tracks your movements. It works out your heart rate(someting I still cant get my head around) and tells you how to improve on your workout. There is something for everyone, so if you want something more intense there are workouts for you.

When I want more of an active workout I also use the Dance Central games and those animated characters just out danced me! I didn't think it was possible for a computer to put me in my place, dance wise but the technology has come on leaps and bounds in recent years. Quite a good workout though and good fun with friends.


I'll be updating you with my fitness journey and quest for a flatter stomach over the next few months. Tune in next week.
