The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout for Kinect

After spending a hour (I am not joking) trying to find out how to use this game "The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout" for the Kinect Xbox 360.  I could make it work.  I even used it for a week.  However, I purchased this item because it has pictured an Exercise Ball.  I use mine for sitting, but I have never had a workout that uses it.  So, I was eager to get the Black Friday special disk.

Because we don't like to kill trees, there is NO MANUAL.  Even master Google couldn't lead me in the right direction.  One You Tube video had a different menu but nothing for the new version I have.

I decided to get help.  I ended up chatting with the Xbox support center.  They were nice, but they couldn't find the answer.  I ended up stumbling across the answer and I wanted other to find out.

As of now, I can only use the "equipment" (stability or exercise ball, bands) by selecting QUICK PLAY.  You can then select either FREE PLAY or CIRCUT TRAINING.  On the FREE PLAY, you can select the exercises that has a ball or bands icon next to the individual workout.

Or in the CIRCUT TRAINING you can select the menu button on the bottom that looks like a ball with a rope around it.  Then you can select your "equipment" ball or bands.  Then select continue at the bottom of the menu.  During the workout, Bob will ask you to get the equipment before starting the exercise.

It was well worth the wait because the exercises rock.

There may be other ways to use the equipment, but those are the two ways I found to use it.  Have Fun!
