First of all, I would LOVE to give this game a 5-star, but for reasons explained below I will stick with the 3-star now. My primary reason for the demotion is that I think the issues with UFC Personal Trainer could have been avoided, but it seems that they either ran out of time or did not do enough testing on their subjects to iron out the wrinkles.

Okay, first things first. UFC (Personal Trainer) is nothing like any other exercise Kinect title out there. The closest you'll get to it is EA Sports Active 2. While most titles are focusing on the aerobic and circuit part of exercising, UFC truly is a 'WORKOUT' like I used to know, i.e. weights and muscle building. This title has areas that claims to give you cardio workouts, etc, but it's not the Your Shape Fitness crunches-style with a 20 minute aerobic session. No, instead UFC is a very structured workout presentation that brings in the well-known reps and sets. Now for those of you who haven't really done a serious workout at a gym, a repetition is how many you do of a particular exercise, like 10 push-ups, and a set is how many times you do those push-ups, like 3 sets. That means, that you will do 10x push-ups, take a break, and then twice more, in total 30 push-ups. Some may say I'm explaining too much now, but it did confuse some of my friends who have only gone to the gym to do yoga, aerobics, or spinning.

Once you understand that this is the focus of UFC, you'll quickly understand how the programmes are structured. In the end it all comes down to this - strengthening your muscles and doing an endurance workout.

I waited for this title in anticipation and once it arrived I was not disappointed. Like the previous reviewer I needed something to improve my agility as I already lifted weights and ran a couple times a week.. You do need a bit of space for this to work properly and there were times when the kinect didn't pick up certain reps but I think that was mostly down to poor form from myself...

So was it worth it? Yes! I did a couple of short workouts and was absolutely shattered and aching for a couple of days (probably down to training at 1am on the day I bought it). The body weight workouts made my muscles work differently in ways they were not used to and the variety of exercises was awesome.

The range of moves was impressive and there were times I actually questioned how fit I really was? Benchmarking 100kg on a regular basis and here I was struggling with a bodyweight exercise... What I realised quickly was that I wasn't as flexible as I thought Iwas and lacked quick twitch muscle strength which I'm hoping this will develop and enhance.

If you're like me and exercise on a regular basis but don't have time to attend martial art classes then this is a must! The range of moves and motion is impressive and am very pleased with it -I think it will benefit beginners also as it caters for different fitness levels.

P.s. It helps if your tv is on the wall via an adjustable arm as you can adjust it to maximise floor space.

So a UFC style trainer for the kinect. After using this game for one month all i can say is that it is GREAT.

The game is purely fitness based but also fun at the same time. It has many options relating to fitness. Basically you have the option to start a quick session or you can do a programme which lasts from 30 days or 60 days.

The quick sessions can focus on certain fighting skills, for example punches and knees. Or alternatively you can choose your own quick session which incorporates your own likes and dislikes.

There are three fitness programmes, being fat loss, endurance and strength. I have completed the 30 day endurance and i have to say it certainly is a hard workout.The workouts are circuit style based and incorporate a whole body approach so you get your heart pumping and your muscles burning for the high repetitions of exercises. You can choose from a variety of trainers that demonstrate the exercises and motivate you to try harder whilst your trying to push out the last rep. The trainer sets a target for you to achieve with any given exercise and this figure is based on the fitness test you take right at the beginning which determines what fitness level you are currently at (intermediate was my starting point). To give an example of exercises i had to complete, on one day i had 27 exercises which lasted approx 40 minutes, this included 26 pressups and 40 tricep extensions all done three times, some days the programme focuses more on legs and other days upper body so my body had time to repair inbetween workout days (my endurance programme was 4 times per week). As you progress through the programmes you can unlock various trainer videos which are interesting to watch.

Iv read about a few people mentioning about the tracking whilst playing.

For years if you wanted to work out you had pretty much two choice:
1) You'd have to go to a gym and face ridicule at being out of shape.
2) You'd have to hopefully find a Fitness Video or DVD that suited you.

As a guy, your options were restricted even further and your choice was restricted to one, Sugar Ray Leonards Boxout. Yet with all visual work outs you have one major problem, that you are not doing it correctly despite your best efforts and risk injury that can occur at any point, so much so that when you do injure yourself it's a hell of a lot harder to start up again after a period of recovery.

Thankfully recent developments in the gaming market have come to peoples rescue and whilst it was the Wii that started the whole work out craze one of the major problems was that the equipment wasn't designed or built for people over a certain weight to utilise. Here for the first time, is an interactive work out piece of software (note I don't call it a game) that is designed to give you a thorough work out utilising floor space and your Kinect. You don't need any fancy equipment, you don't need to buy additional hardware and you don't need to worry about doing it correctly as the programme monitors what you do at each point and corrects you as it goes along.

Back that up with customisable settings so that you get the work out you want and it's a real dream. Yes you've got to undergo a fitness test to begin with but that's so it can set the difficulty for you and yes it may not be for everyone but for a guy to have something to help them get fitter that doesn't involve dancing is a minor miracle in itself and let's face it, it's not just guys that don't want to dance about my other half can attest to during her UFC workout.
