‘UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System’ And The Kinect Are A Perfect Match

So its obvious that Microsoft unveiled the Kinect in response to the Nintendo Wii, but the company has not released a whole lot of interactive titles that center around fitness. Nintendo might have ‘The Biggest Loser’ and ‘Just Dance 2,’ but ‘UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System’ promises to get gamers in shape without making them feel warm and fuzzy. The thing about Nintendo Wii games that focus on fitness is that they’re usually geared towards children and those that aren’t really looking for a high impact workout.

With the Kinect, ‘UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System’ players can keep track of their progress and execute each move with provision. You can also customize your avatar to look identical to yourself, and as you continue to workout over a period of time, the definition on your stomach will not just be on your stomach. UFC fighters are known for their hard hitting moves and over the top personalities. Even if you aren’t a fan of the sport itself, you can still get a calorie burning workout just by turning on your Xbox 360.

The game is supported by the National Academy of Sports Medicine, which means that couch potato gamers and professional athletes can get a safe and effective workout. You might never want to get into the ring with a real UFC fighter, but if you have been thinking about making your debut in the sport, ‘UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System’ can give you a good start.
