Digital Spy writes: "UFC Personal Trainer is an excellent fitness title and well worth investing in for those keen on losing a few pounds and gaining some muscle. The game is well presented and full of useful exercises, routines and programmes, which are tough but fair and occasionally even fun. While it may suffer from a few technical issues, it's still largely trouble-free and among the more reliable Kinect games available at this point. The lack of actual fighting may be off-putting to some and the amount of room needed to play the game may also be an issue. However, those who can accommodate UFC Personal Trainer won't fail to be knocked out by its benefits to the body."
