Ubisoft’s new well-being program My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape is in store now! Developed for the Nintendo Wii by Ubisoft Barcelona and based on the original idea from ResponDesign’s “Yourself! Fitness” and Fitness! Lifestyle, My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape brings a personal fitness coach into the player’s living room. In the USA the game sold more than 100,000 copies sold in only 7 weeks, and My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape is available now in Australia and New Zealand.
My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape has almost 500 unique exercises featuring yoga, cardio fitness, strength training, flexibility and weight loss routine workouts. Under the friendly supervision of Maya, the virtual fitness coach, the player creates their own fitness planning adapted to their abilities and objectives.
My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape includes an extensive tracking system, so that the player can have clear visibility on their achievements and successes. Moreover, it offers the possibility to include pieces of equipment (weights, step bench…) in the training sessions to utilise fitness gear that the player already owns. With 8 different types of environment and 7 different styles of music to choose from, My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape fully adapts to the user’s preferences for personalised training sessions.
My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape is then a direct competitor to Nintendo’s own Wii Fit. The major difference between the two games is that My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape does not use the balance board, it’s more a watch and follow sort of experience, whereas with the balance board there’s more interactivity with, and feed back from, the game itself.
My Fitness Coach: Get in Shape has an RRP of $49.95.
