…would have told me 10 years ago I would use my game console for fitness stuff, I would have laughed at him.
But I now started to combine recreational gaming with fitness by using Kinect PlayFit together with Kinect Sports: Season 2 and Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012. PlayFit gives you the extra motivation with the achievements and the possibility to compare your activities to other fellow gamers. Kinect Sports is for the sake of fun and Fitness evolved is for doing the needed workouts to gain my fitness level.
Up to now it’s working well and from day to day I notice how the exercises become easier and I can raise the level a bit. I’ll post more experiences and training effects after around a month.
