An interesting thing happened just the other day when I was looking around to games section to see what was sitting on the shelves. Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 was sitting there. Since I enjoyed the first one I thought I would grab this one and get back on the track to fitness.
There are a few differences and from I can tell, they’re all good! The most interesting is the addition to some floor exercises that make this a more complete workout. More classes were added as were some warm-ups to help cool down a little or to loosen up before tackling a workout.
The first day I got it I was checking it out to see what all was in the “game” when I heard the little chime that meant my console was shutting down. What?… I look down and see my dog has wandered over and touched the button with her nose! So I turn it back on and start doing some stuff like running through New York and missed the challenge. Oh well, I see what the exercises have to offer and see you can focus on different groups now. I try the arms and find it interesting. I then go and see what the classes are all about and check one of those out. I’m still miffed I missed the challenge on the run and go back to that and do it again. This time I get the challenge and shortly afterwards hear that chime again as my dog decided to check it out again. I mean… really? 9 months at the house and she’s never messed with the console ever and now she’s curious about it. I think I may have yelled a little bit. Now I’m mad and not thinking straight so I turn the console back on and wait a little while to catch my breath. I’m determined to complete this run one way or another. Someone should have been there to tell me that I should go for it again the next day because after I made it through that run, I felt horrible. I had to go lay down for a few minutes just so the nausea would go away. After that I stuck to my goal and the dog hasn’t messed with the button anymore. At least, for the week I’ve been playing.
There is still a lot that I haven’t done yet, but since some of those achievements have a burn 100,000+ calories, I should be doing this for some time. Who knows, by then it should be a habit. :)
