Welcome to my Your Shape: Fitness Evolved roadmap. This is a collection of fitness inspired classes, activities and mini games. The majority of the achievements can be obtained easily enough by just playing whatever activities you like. Nothing is terribly hard and you can make the game as casual or strenuous as your body can take. The time it will take you to complete the game will vary GREATLY depending on how you choose to play. I'll go into more detail in Step 4 below. My suggested breakdown is as follows:
Step 1 - Tutorial/Fitness Test:
When you first start the game you will be forced into a short tutorial and the game will ask you some basic questions. Answer them however you like with the exception of your weight. The answer to this will determine how quickly you will unlock the achievements. You can either go with your actual weight and progress through the game at your own pace or put in the maximum weight of 396 pounds to burn calories (and achievements) as fast as possible. Once you get to the main menu of the game choose "Personal Training" and just answer the questions and play through the basic moves for "First Contact".
Step 2 - Official Website:
With the Fitness test out of the way, take a minute to go to your computer and login to the official website. Login with your Uplay credentials to link to your gamertag then create a challenge (or accept a friends challenge). This will allow you to unlock "Track your progress online" and "Ready Steady Go!" DURING step 3 below. Check the achievement guide for specifics on each of these achievements if you are having trouble.
Please note that if "Events" are ever enabled on the website, you can will be able to join one and get "Be part of the community". Unfortunately, this option has not been supported since the games original release which makes this achievement unobtainable at the present time.
Step 3 - Gym Games:
There are 4 gym games and each one has a score based achievement. They can all be completed on easy and you can keep replaying them as often as you need to. Just look under the four "High Score in... (event)" sections of the achievement guide for tips if you need help. Please note that upon completing the first couple of mini games, your gamertag profile will sync with your Uplay account and you should unlock the achievements mentioned in step 2 above.
Step 4 - Fitness Classes and Calorie Burning:
Now go ahead and go back to the main menu and select Fitness Classes. You need to play through the first parts of both the Zen and Boxing sections to unlock the "entire class" and the 2 respective achievements.
At this point the only thing left to do is burn calories. This is where you need ask yourself a question and make a decision: (a) "Am I here to excercise and achievements are a motivation?" or (b) "Am I here to get achievements?".
If you fall into category "A", then you probably put in your actual weight at the beginning. Just continue to play the game using the personal trainer, fitness classes and gym games that you like. All the calorie related achievements will unlock over time. An average person will be able to burn at BEST around 100 calories per 12 minute workout.
If you fall into category "B", then you put your weight in at 396 pounds when we started. Read "Calorie Score 10,000" for tips on getting over 400 calories burned per 12 minute workout effectively quadrupling the speed in which you will gain the remaining acheivements. This will get you the maximum obtainable gamerscore within 15 total hours or less.
You can also start the game as category "A" and then switch to "B" to speed things up if you like. Or just do a combination of both - it's up to you.
The game is really pretty good and is a useful tool to get in shape. You can tackle the classes and games in any order and then only play the ones you like to burn the needed calories. The choice is yours as everything counts toward your total calories burned. Have fun!
