THQ branches off from its successful UFC: Undisputed series with a title that focuses less on fighting and more on fitness.

Developed by Heavy Iron, UFC Personal Trainer: The Ultimate Fitness System does what it says on the tin. The title's raison d'être is to provide users with customisable and pre-set exercise routines based on Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) in order to build strength, endurance and burn calories.

The Kinect version features exclusive content like voice command navigation and a full body tracking system that offers feedback on technique and form to the user. Designed by the National Academy of Sports Medicine and various world-renowned trainers such as Mark DellaGrotte, Greg Jackson and Javier Mendez, there are over 70 MMA and NASM-approved exercises, with techniques from disciplines such as Muay Thai and wrestling.

Of the 90 routines that are available, nine are exclusive to the Kinect version but all are specialised in working specific muscle groups. Users can personalise their routines with up to 12 exercises, allowing them to customise and modify their workouts according to individual preferences.

The aim is to achieve one of three goals: build strength, losing weight and improving the user's overall performance. Users can select a pre-set 30-day or 60-day program, both of which will schedule daily routines in the in-game calendar and as well as track user performances. A journal will provide an overview of fitness activities and offer recommendations to help users reach their goals.

UFC Personal Trainer is scheduled for release later this month.

They just need to release a dummy peripheral so users can practice their triangles. (I jest.)
