emoticon SPJ999, sounds like you have had a great start to the Kinect experience. I am still debating getting the UFC Trainer one (I have the first Your Shape and found it too slow).

Good Morning everyone,
I'm new to Kinect but not to SP. My kids received Xbox w/ kinect for Xmas and I'm in LOVE!! I live in S. Fl. with my family. I'm turning 40 this year & I need to lose this excessive weight that is holding me down. This week alone, I got Your Shape 2012 & Zumba.Put it like this, my abs are sore as I type this intro. (LOL)
Hopefully I will stay KINECT-ed with everyone. Thanks.

Hi, everyone! I just received my xbox and kinect a couple days ago, but I haven't really had too much of a chance to get on there yet. My 4 year old thinks we got it for her.. lol. I have to bribe her to get my turn. And when I do get a turn, the baby wants me to hold her while I play. I'm hoping to get more time in once the newness wears off some. emoticon

Welcome to all the new members!!

I have the EA Sports Active for the Kinect and the Wii and must admit it is MUCH better without having to use a controller. We also got the Black Eyed Peas Experience after the holidays and while I can't dance worth a bean it is fun (at least I know the songs unlike the Dance Central games). Others have strongly recommended the UFC Trainer game as well I just don't want to spend $50 on it right now (same with the Zumba for Kinect).

Hi! My name is Chris and i live out in Colorado. I am new to spark. I am a runner and looking at ways to get stronger and meet some goals for the new year. I am taking a bit of a break since my last marathon in October. I was disappointed in my time and realized that i needed to change my routine. I just started using Kinect and it is a blast! I intend on keeping it going as a way incorporate strength training and some additional cardio. I have to say Dance Central 2 is about the most fun i have had! I am not a game person at all, but this system has me completely sold.

If we all did the things we are capable of doing we would literally astound ourselves.

Hi!
I am a high school English teacher. I was very successful on Spark People back in 2008... I made it to 10 pounds over my goal weight, losing over 60 bls. I started over a couple of times and here I go again. Read my Spark Page to learn more about me!
I'm hoping that the Kinect will motivate me to reach my goals and maintain them this time. Hope to meet you all!
Thanks,
Alaina

Hi everyone I just recently joined sparkpeople to try and keep myself motivated. I have had the kinect since release but haven't used it much but decided that I'm going to use it a couple times a week now for myself. I have the first your shape game, the first dance central, and the first sports but I am also looking at buying some new workout games. If anybody has any good suggestions for some I'd be happy to hear them!

Hello there. I'm just trying to become a bit healthier and in the process get the weight down. I definately need more energy. My xbox live id is bookishcub891. I have the old Your shape, but I am hoping to get the new one for Christmas. I really like Dance Central though.

emoticon to the group. I am loving my Kinect, bought the add on to make it work so I can stand closer all I can say is total waste of money it is going back. This just means that when the whole family is up they run the risk of being hit by me while I move around trying to guard the goal or do step aerobics.

If you are familiar with the EA Sports for the Wii on the Kinect it is so much better. I found that Your Shape moves too slow for me but my 13 year old loves it because she looks like a "blob".

Hi! I'v been on SP for ALMOST a year now, but just got the xbox 360 kinect a few days ago! I only have one game (that came with it)...Kinect Adventures, and one to download (Carnival)...and don't expect to get more until AFTER the holidays. Also, I haven't yet figured out how to work the thing without a kid...sooooo, I am looking forward to learning all of this and being more ACTIVE. I'v gotta tell ya...i'v been doing crunches, push ups and squats like a crazy woman, and some walking/jogging....but the Adventures game kicked my bahooka! My thighs are so sore I can barely walk!!

I'm new to both SP and Kinect. Very excited to figure out what I'm doing on both counts. I've got about 15 pounds to lose, and I'm determined to dance it off with Dance Central 2.

I can't wait to get to know more of the folks on this team. Hello, there! emoticon

Hello:

I'm not new to SP, but I sure am new to Kinect. My son suggested it and I really haven't done to much with it, I just received Zumba and Body Evolve(?) so I am looking forward to getting familiar with them.

I also seen the topic for others in this team connecting thru Kinect and playing together; this is foreign to me, lol. I'm sifting through the pages here and on the Kinect site to better understand it all, and I am hoping to figure out game tag names and how to find others here that are using both Kinect and SP. I did figure out you have to subscribe and then well... I'm lost.. lol

So anywho this is me, PrayerBella, I do talk/type alot and apologize ahead if I confuse anyone. :P

And on the gentler side *waves* nice to meet you all!

PB

Yeah I havnt played my Wii fit since I got the Kinnect. I like the wiifit tennis and golf though, good with family. Not having a controller is great! But need a big room.

As far as getting the new My Shape, I havnt really done the old one justice. Will definitely read reviews. I'm bound to get it probably not straight away. Still on the old sports...

I am finding the Kinect is knocking my Wii Fit to the side very fast. I enjoy not having a darned controller to contend with, still waiting for the Zumba game to drop in price a little.

Hi I'm new,

Joined yesterday so still learning the ropes. I play kinect not everyday though. I've got a few games, I like sports soccer, and your shape probably the best.

I like the zen workouts, would like to get in the habit of doing a 5 min one everyday, calms me down, good for the emotions.

I walk a lot, but want to swim and mountain bike as well. I'd like to jog again but am probably too heav for that

Cheers all
G

Welcome to the group! I hope you find the Kinect so much fun, that you'll be stuck to it like glue. There is also a Kinect swimming game out there (Michael Phelps: Push the Limit) and it was actually better than I thought it would be. Sure, it isn't the real thing, but it is fun in its own right. The game that comes with Kinect, Kinect Adventures, is also one of my favorites. It is fun, a decent workout, and attracts a lot of other people to join.

I just got the Kinect and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved last weekend. So far, I am loving it!

I'm a teacher who always has twenty million different things to do, so it's super convenient, and I feel like I'm getting a good workout. I also like to run and swim, when I get a chance. Swimming is usually too much of a time commitment, though, as much as I love it.

My commitment to fitness and health kind of comes and goes, but I hope that having the Kinect helps me hang on to it this time.

Thanks Tema.....I was dead set against the dance games...until I tried the demos this morning. I'm so uncoordinated and everything. I did pretty well on the 1st Dance Central demo, the 2nd one was too fast for uncoordinated me. So if I get one, it will probably be the first one. With me though....you never know :)

Hello everyone.

I splurged yesterday and finally bought a XBOX with a Kinect. I'd been wanting one for awhile but never liked the price until I saw yesterday's Best Buy ad. lol Along with the Adventure game that came with it, I also bought Wipeout 2 and both the Sports games (even though I can't pick those up until tomorrow). I do plan on buying more fitness based games too.

In the past I've been very successful with the Wii and EA Sports Active 2 with regards to losing weight, but I had gotten away from it (knee issues) and even found ways to cheat with the Wii. So far, I think it would be hard to cheat with the Kinect! :)

Hiya,
my name is SheWolf, i have been a member of SparksPeople for a few years now. I know not all of us have been able to keep "on track", "motivated", "strong" and whatever else we feel during our journey of loosing weight. SparksPeople has taught me that "no matter" how many friends you have, "no matter" how you are feeling, "no matter" what you think of yourself....SPARKSPEOPLE is the ONLY way forward, even if you are like me and by yourself, you shall ALWAYS have SparksPeople.

I have Kinect Xbox 360 and have used many, many times in the past though i am hoping through Sparkspeople i can keep the momentum up and keep going through the may challenges that the Kinect fitness offers. I have Zumba, UFC, EA Active2 and You Shape. However i use Zumba and UFC more than the others, though through the Kinect team here on Sparkies i am hoping that i can improve in all aspects of my everyday life and living.

I'm from Glasgow in Bonnie Scotland just in case you wondered, i have a loving better half, Billy and 2 majestic German Shepherds

Hi Helen, nice to have a new face, I just joined here a little while ago as well.

I have tried the Dance Central 2 game and decided that it was too much of a learning curve and I have no sense of rhythm when it comes to the new music they use on this one.

Hey all, I just had a very nice member here post on my Spark Page telling me of the existence of this group. I have had the Kinect for about a year and honestly swore I'd NEVER buy an XBox but being the controller is a cool feature and for the first 3 months we only had the game it came with and the kids and even the hubby were having a blast with it.

I look forward to reading reviews and such on new games and improving my fitness with the power of gaming. Currently I only have Your Shape (kind of sucks for my fitness level but it comes in handy when I'm not feeling up to a regular workout) and EA Sports Active for the Kinect but have looked at The Biggest Loser (Bob ticked me off on the Wii so I'm a little biased on this game not being worth the money) and the UFC one looks interesting but not sure if I have the space needed to use it effectively. Zumba has also caught my eye but I suck at most forms of dancing.

Hi...i like Dance Central and currently use it instead of workout dvd's when I exercise inside.

I have Zumba on loan from Game Fly and hope it's better than some of the reviews I read back when it first was released.

My xbox live name is the same as on here: LAETU5

Hey all. I joined this team a few days ago, but now just introducing myself. I am Jill. I LOVE the kinect!!! I play the Kinect Sports && the biggest loser workout. I really like those games. The biggest loser is a real amazing workout!! I will be starting to do it reguarly now that it's getting colder outside and winter is coming here in Michigan!! ohh no! I did try the zumba game for the kinect and I wasn't a fan, But that is because I LOVE the real zumba! I can't go to the classes anymore due to my work/school schedule. But hopefully after Janurary I can start up again because I miss it!

Welcome everyone! Kathleen - that is cool that you are Annecek's sister.

Glad to see everyone discovering us and getting more active. I think as fall/winter comes upon us...and more Kinect games come out...we'll be seeing a lot more activity. Call it a hunch. :)

Hi, I am 37 divorced mother of two and is getting remarried next year. I walk my dogs mostly but needed something to do on rainy days or when it ice and snows. My sister has been very succesful ANNECEK with her weight loss. She has lost 80 lbs with Dance Central. I recently, purchased game and kinect and instantly loved it. Hopefully somebody out there will challenge me.!

Hi Temamc thanks for the welcome. I do have the dvd's, I have had them for years, haven't really don't them much. Watch...WATCH the classes at the gym, they seem a lot of fun but are real cliquish, so I haven't joined. I don't really have any "fitness" games, but I have Dance Central, MJ Experience, and Kinect Adventures...so, anything that get's the family up moving. I say Dance Central was my most fitness challenging game until I got Zumba! Wow it's been difficult! I definitely want to get more.

Hello, I'm Tamika...Just REFOUND Spark after refinding myself (ok...so it is my homepage on my computer...meaning I have to bypass it to go to get on to do homework everyday) so I have just been avoiding the inevitable! Trying to get back into this once again and have been in LOVE with our Xbox ever since my Ex Husband bought it for my kids for Christmas last year. Just did my first Zumba Fitness workout tonight and I knew I had to come on and find a Sparkteam to join so hear I am! Can't wait to keep it going!

Hi - I'm new to the team and new to Kinect, but not really new to SP - just new "this time", if you know what I mean. :)

Am I missing where/how to enter Kinect time into the Fitness Tracker? There's Wii games in there but Kinect comes up empty. I just want to make sure I get at least close to the correct information. Thanks.

Hello everyone!
I am Holly, and dancing is my passion, so Dance Central and kinect were my dream come true! LOL
I am looking forward to Dance Central 2 and more fun Kinect Games to come! I would LIKE to lose about 15 pounds so hopefully Kinect can speed up the process a little.

My gamertag is hollydawn187 if anyone wants to add me. :)

Hello Everyone!!

I'm Evey and I have moved back to Europe not a long time ago (I lived in New England before that). I'm definitely not new to SparkPeople but only recently did I finally get myself together and started seriously working toward my goals.

I am a huge fan of Kinect - maybe except for the days when it doesn't feel like tracking what I'm doing and I feel like I'm just standing there in the middle of my living room flailing my hands like a windmill! :D So far I've been mostly playing Your Shape: FE but I also have Dance Central which I hope to pick up soon.

I vowed to myself that this time I will not try to do everything by myself and instead become a more active member of the SparkPeople Community. Banzai to staying motivated together!!

Hi, everyone. Patrick from CA reporting in. I'm relatively new to actually using Spark (though I signed up forever ago). In addition to my Kinect (Your Shape, UFC Trainer, Sports, emoticon Dance Central), I've been practicing Kung Fu for a little over a year. I haven't lost a ton of weight due to my eating habits, but I'm in better shape than when I started. Getting on Spark to help encourage better eating.

I'll stop rambling now. Looking forward to staying motivated with you all.

Hi! I'm new to the group, and trying to lose my baby weight! I am a full-time working mommy to two little ones, a girl who is 2.5 and a boy who will be 1 next week (my house is crazy, yes). I have to squeeze in my Kinect time when the kids are asleep in the mornings, so it's not always easy.

I'm at my heaviest non-pregnant weight, and have gained weight in the last 6 months instead of losing it emoticon But that's why I'm here - to fix that!

I have Zumba and Kinect Adventures, but if I have a decent amount of success with this I would like to get some of the other Dance games!

I have a feeling there will be a lot of us running out to get this game. Don't forget to keep you code that came with Dance Central 1. I imagine there will be a good use for it in DC2.
