My Fitness Coach Club Gets Europe Sweaty on February 18th

Posted by James Newton

Hits North America in March

Ubisoft has so many fitness franchises it's probably struggling to keep up with their names itself: Wii owners have played My Fitness Coach and Your Shape, and Kinect gamers have probably played Your Shape: Fitness Evolved, but the company's about to take its first steps onto PlayStation Move with My Fitness Coach: Club.

Known as Fit in Six in North America, the game promises a "personalised fitness experience, developed with fitness professionals to help you attain your goals", as you'd expect. A combination of PlayStation Move and the PlayStation Eye Camera let you see yourself on-screen and receive direct feedback, both visually and verbally, to help you attain better form.

For those fitness fanatics who prefer to listen to their own tunes to motivate themselves, My Fitness Coach: Club lets you rip your favourite tracks to the PlayStation 3's hard drive and let the game pick one to accompany your workout. There'll also be extra content to be downloaded throughout the year, which should hopefully keep you motivated all year long.

PlayStation Move hasn't yet received a stand-out fitness title, so we'll keep an eye on My Fitness Coach: Club for sure. The game is scheduled for a European release on February 18th, with a release under the name Fit in Six this March.

I have sports active 2 its think it’s quite good but when you’re in the mood to work out you just want to do it you don’t want to have a set up to do, in the case of sports active its putting on the bands, might not sound like much but it can be a pain, with this you just seem to pick up the move and away you go which i think is a much better idea however exercise wise how many ways can you do a crunch? so i don’t think it will offer anything new to what else is already out there, but being able to jump right in is very appealing to me but i think i would miss the heart rate monitor, as much as i hate the straps i think they serve a need shame the heart rate monitor isn’t built in to the move controller like it is on a cross trainer, wow i just invented a new controller and to make it even better you could bring out some sort of sleeve that fits the controller and would be used to house added weights If this game has that type of system I would buy it and if EA. where to bring it out for sports active 2 I would throw yet more money at them for extra controllers say £30 per controller extra £60 for each game with extra cash generated for the weighted sleeves. They could even have them signed by becks or just make them a funky colour and because it’s the controller for the PS3 its more lightly to already have a charge in it so need to fumble around looking for batteries or mugging your remote for them; I’m so going to the patent office now :-)

@tastetest That sounds awesome! Let us know when your controller is out and we'll give you some publicity ;)

I'll be reviewing this one so stay tuned :)

I tried the EA Active Fit 2 and agree with tastetest that while it was a good game, it was a pain to have to keep "strapping yourself up". Also the technology in the USB / motion detector was awful in the EA product - it wouldnt detect when I had completed a rep and had trouble detecting where you were and whether you were doing an exercise correctly, thereby defeating the object of it. I have been hoping for a game on the Move to replace that as the Move motion sensing technology will obviously be better so am looking forward to this. Despite there not being a heart rate monitor included and linked in the game, I just hope the game allows us to use our own heart rate monitor (which are quite cheap) and it tells us what the optimum heart rate would be at regular intervals!

@Snichy The official Ubisoft press site lists it as 18/02/2011. Strange - we'll keep you posted though!
