  1. Considering the complaint that is always out there about how videogames make people lazy or fat, this is definitely the answer to that complaint. This is a really good title for the man trying to convince his woman to buy a PS2.
  2. If you’re tired of watching the same aerobic videos over and over, or need some motivation to get in shape, give Yourself!Fitness a try and actually use your console (or PC) as a path to a healthier lifestyle.
  3. So yeah, it's a virtual exercise tape. But it's cool. [June 2005, p.78]
  4. Though a little cheesy, it's a good way to create a customized home workout with menu suggestions and progress chart.

    Maya is an excellent mentor who gives more attention than a video can -- she asks questions and will help you with specific exercises, and that's more than some gyms will even offer. If ResponDesign can integrate some features just a bit tighter, incorporate your music preferences just a bit more, make the environments a bit more real, it will have a complete winner. But as for why the PS2 version was allowed to go out with the horrendous voice crackling is beyond us.
  6. Yourself!Fitness takes all the fun out of your PS2 as it tries to get you into shape. Hey, most of us gamers are in shape - the shape of the capital letter "O" - or at the very least, the small letter "b." So leave us the hell alone.

    Maya kicked my ass this morning...this isn't a game, it is a workout format. Yes, the voice is a bit crackly, and the music isn't fantastic, but just turn up the stereo to whatever you like. This is much better than going to the gym. Expand

    This really isn't a game, but a fitness program which probably has the above "critics" confused. It's not about having great music or graphics for when you are really working out and concentrating on your body, all of that just fades into the background anyway. Having used fitness centers for fifteen years, it is nice having a personal trainer right in the house, especially with time and gas prices at a premium. This program checks your progress every 10 workouts to see how you have improved and where you might need more work. You don't get that type of attention at a gym for this price! Expand

    I really like how it is able to accurately shape workouts for your specific level and keep changing as your shape improves. In-workout feedback is also a plus. It also helps with that performance fear that can keep some from going to the gym. The only improvement that I might want is the ability to tell Maya "I did something else today." Expand

    This game got me into crazy good shape all over. Sometimes when you get strong this game alone isn't enough, but thats okay. I can highly recommend this as its the best fitness game besides DDR. Expand
