Fitness unlocked

So Your Shape: Fitness Evolved came in from gamefly this week. I'm always needing to workout more and get in better shape and I figured we've got this kinect, so why not. Dance Central and Kinect Adventures have only been played when we have people over so far. After a few days with Your Shape I totally get it. As someone who is really enticed by achievements this game makes working out that much more enjoyable. Getting an achievement after working out is a dumb carrot but it totally works on me. It's got a decent mix of workouts to keep it mixed up. One bad thing I've noticed is it throws you into the workouts really quick. Hopefully the next one incorporates some warmup/cooldown/stretching sets around the workouts. We'll see how it goes and if I can stick with it. As long as the achievements keep flowing at a steady pace, I'm sure I will.

I've noticed a lot of these workout games (I have a couple myself) just throw you right in.  I think they just expect you'll warm up before hand.  Sometimes what I'll do is use one of their workouts as a warmup.  Like with WiiFit I always started with the advanced step aerobic as my warmup. 
 
Interested in hearing a bit more on the achievements.  Wondering if that carrot on a stick would work better for me too.
