Some people can't get over being in the same room as people that look good already. Most people that really need to go the gym have a bad perceived self image of themselves already and it exacerbates when they step foot in a gym.

I have been to the gym many times and I am not fat or too bad out of shape, but I get those looks when I am not benching as much as I 'should' be benching and so forth.

Not everyone is cut out for the gym. Also, yearly and monthly memberships are pretty costly and if you don't know what you are doing, hiring a trainer can really add to your costs.

XBOX Fitness is pretty great. It removes the feeling of eyes watching you and it encourages you to do better.

I'm sure everyone feels people are atching them, but often their not.
The amount of weight your lifting depends on what your aim is. body building or building endurance.

It is good to have different workouts and xbox fitness is a great workout.
doing same workout over and over will not benefit you a change every month will have you seeing big gains.
Before i got an xbox one i was a jelly about ps4 not having a workout app.
hell i'm workout right now on my 60 sec break between sets then i'm going to do a quick ten minute cardio on xbox one.
