Your Shape with Camera (Wii)
Advantages: Individualised workouts, like having your very own personal trainer without going the gym
Disadvantages: none found as yet
I have a number of Wii games but I have to say I think this is my favourite. I have tried numerous fitness games and none of them have been as beneficial as this one.
The game comes with its own camera which is really easy to set up and get started (this is coming from a complete technology novice). You will need the Wii, TV, Wii remotes and balance board.
Once loaded all you had to do was enter some basic information about your body height, weight, age etc. The camera then scanned your body and n image of you is displayed on the screen. The game then looks at your body and decides which part of the body needs the most work, this can be quite offensive but hey! Although this area will be given as a suggestion you can also choose to aim your workout at another part of the body so it is tailored to what you want. You then add what the aim of your work e.g. to lose weight, tone etc and how long you want to work out for. The finally with all of this information the computer will generate a workout that will, suit and benefit you, I thought this was great as it is like having a very own personal trainer were the workout is specifically for you.
When all of this is complete the workout is about to begin. An image of your body is displayed on one side of the screen and the "trainer" on the other. The trainer will then perform an exercise and you are to follow, as you do this you're on screen double will mimic your movement, a percentage will appear to say how accurate your moves are and the trainer will then suggest ways in which to improve the exercise so that you are making the most of each movement. Each workout includes muscle toning, and strengthening exercises and also aerobic exercise to aid weight loss, but will primarily focus on the aims you have set.
I really enjoyed the workouts set but was absolutely shattered by the end of a twenty minute workout. I felt the same level of exhaustion as when i go to the gym, all this without leaving the house. There are also other features available on the game for example exercise diary which i found very useful.
Summary: Great individualised workouts, helps to lose weight and tone
