Long time readers know I love exercise games. I may spend hours in front of a computer every day, but jump at the opportunity to do something athletic. adidas miCoach is one of those home console games that mixes gaming with exercise. Family Friendly Gaming was provided the Xbox 360 Kinect version of adidas miCoach. There is also a Playstation 3 (PS3) version.

adidas miCoach impressed the Family Friendly Gaming team at Microsoft's press conference at E3 2012. We had great seats to get pumped for this exercise title. adidas miCoach distinguishes itself by having so many well known athletes as the trainers. They will show how to do the exercise, and provide positive encouragement.

adidas miCoach looks good. Especially the athletes. A few of the videos did not look right to me. Meaning the athlete and background did not mesh. These minor video issues from time to time can be forgiven. The same goes for the way adidas miCoach puts us on the screen. I do have one minor quibble here - I was not always quick enough to get into the right position. adidas miCoach performs a close up on the athlete and I was not shown. So I could not see if I had the right form or not.

adidas miCoach is very kind to the player to tell them to correct certain things. This is not always accurate though. I was supposed to be in a plank, but stayed sitting on my knees. The game did not recognize my poor form. Instead it told me to stay still. So I tested adidas miCoach in a few different ways. I danced around, and quit early. adidas miCoach did not chastise me for it, or encourage me to do better. I was told I hit it out of the park after skipping more than half the exercises.

The in game representations of the diverse athletes is fantastic. I love hearing their different voices explain exercises, and give me encouragement. One of them even invited me to join his NFL Football team. I am going to jump right on that offer - just kidding. I am very appreciative of sounds telling me when to start and stop certain exercises. Especially the ones where my face was down in the carpet.

The social aspect of adidas miCoach is a neat little addition. Family members can go to the website, or use a mobile app to access stats, schedules and progress. There should also be a large community to compare and share with once it goes live. adidas miCoach takes the social direction the culture has gone and helps us get fit.

There are over four hundred exercises in adidas miCoach. I had problems with the tennis simulator where I was knocking down bricks. Aside from that everything was great. In fact I can feel the burn from my last NFL Football workout. adidas miCoach does a wonderful job of focusing on certain body parts.

I am very thankful that Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy of adidas miCoach. It has impacted my personal fitness in multiple important ways. My only suggestion is do not cheat in adidas miCoach. It allowed me to mess around, but that was testing it. I hope this home console game takes off and produces sequels - maybe on the Wii U.
