Product Features

Your Shape is a Nintendo Wii game by Ubisoft. The game features Jenny McCarthy, someone who is well known for having a body in tip top shape. The thing that makes this wii fitness game unique when compared to others on the market is that it uses a special camera that will scan your body to watch for correct form and posture, rather than relying on using the wii remotes and sensors to ensure you are getting the workout you are looking for. The fact that it does not require the remotes is what draw many people to the game, though some people say the camera makes it harder because it does not let you work out, but rather informs the user the form is not correct. Some say the directions are not clear, which makes it difficult or impossible to use. There is a good cardio workout on the game, but many reviews say it needs more pilates and yoga routines. The price of the game is now between $10 and $20, which shows a significant drop in price from the game debut.

Conclusion

Your Shape has a good fundamental concept, with the camera and the bubbly personality of Jenny McCarthy. The game is hit or miss based on how well you are able to mimic the positions, or how long you are willing to use the game in order to learn how to make sure the camera is learning your movements and “seeing” what you are doing. The game does a good job at addressing cardio exercises, but does not do enough strength training. This product does not address diet and nutrition, so it may help you lose weight if you are willing to eat a better diet. To boost your overall effort, add a clinically proven weight loss supplement.
