I’ve discovered that the best way to ensure that I get my daily YourShape: Fitness Evolved workouts in is to do them in the mornings otherwise, I run the risk of my Kinect time being cut off with the limits I’ve set on the built in Family Timer on our Xbox!
The built in Family Timer feature helps regulate screen time for the entire family by keeping track of total playtime on the console. It counts the time that I spend working out with my YourShape trainer, minutes the kids are taking care of their cubs on Kinectimals or practicing their bowling skills on Kinect Sports, my husband’s Tony Hawk Shred time, and even guest play during play dates to ensure that we are maintaining a healthy balance of screen time versus other activities.
The Family Timer is one feature of XBox 360’s Family Settings that is activated by turning on your Xbox for the first time, by going to Family Settings under the My Xbox channel on the dashboard at any time, or after downloading the latest Xbox LIVE update. Turning Console Safety “on” allows you to set time limits, control games based on ESRB ratings, control access to movies and television shows according to MPAA and TV Parental Guidelines.
