  • While most of the video streaming issues that plagued Xbox Fitness for months after its launch have been fixed, very little else has been worked on in the last two years, leading to a sense of abandonment for many users despite promises of more updates coming soon. Body-tracking glitches are still a common occurrence and range from instances of next to zero activity measured to error messages instructing the user to speed up or slow down despite the fact they’re working at the same speed as the instructor on screen. The Kinect still has trouble tracking floor exercise such as sit-ups, push-ups, and plank (often not detecting any movement at all during these exercises) and there are also problems with the clunky user interface which oddly restricts itself to showing only one friend on the leaderboard and requires the navigation through several layers of menus and filters just to find the right workout. , though for a program that’s free for most Xbox One owners (who doesn’t have a Gold membership these days?) it’s worth checking out at least a few times. Recommended workouts: Anything by Mossa and Jullian Michaels.

  • Once you just break down and use a controller and have the Kinect set up in just the right way, Active 2 is a decent alternative to the gym. The trainer that talks to you during the workouts actually motivated me, and I found my muscles straining in just the way Active 2 said they would. Some of the Kinect-utilizing, body-tracking exercises work better than others; dodge ball seems to track my body well, for instance, while boxing was hit or miss (pun intended). Several exercises don't track you with the Kinect sensor, but this is not a bad thing – in the end, you know whether or not you're cheating yourself, and if you're paying $100 for an exercise program, why would you?

    Also check out .Movement detection on the PlayStation 3 seems to be one of the more accurate options, but any kind of exercise will likely require buying a peripheral, which can get expensive. The costs $99.99 and includes a sports game, one Move controller and a PlayStation Eye camera.
