Final Breakdown


While Yourself! Fitness isn't "played" as a game, the presence of on-the-fly adjustability to the difficulty settings and the variety in exercises routines keeps the game fresh in a way that its competition, the old standby workout videos, can't compete with.


While the graphics and environments are beautifully done, I would have appreciated a 720p rendering mode on the Xbox version for those of us with HDTV capability.

Sound and Music:

The music is well set for the workouts, and exercises sync flawlessly with the beat. The musical varieties should keep anyone happy.


Yourself! Fitness aims to challenge you at all times; if you're honest about reporting on your fitness evaluations, and about your day-to-day perceived feelings, it should stay in a safe range for physical improvement. That being said, the fitness evaluations are always highly challenging.

Controls and Interface:

There's not much to "control" in the game, but the easy and intuitive menus for setting up each day's workout are beautifully arranged for a minimum of fuss.


If you're wanting to get in shape, or stay that way - even if you already have a gym membership - pick this up. You won't be disappointed.
