The Best Video Game Ever

Filed under: fitness club software, fitness software — Tags: — MattZ @ 7:57 pm

Wouldn’t it be great if they invented video games that integrate exercise so your kids (and you) could exercise  instead of sitting on the couch all day?

News flash:  They did a long time ago.  Wii Fit U by Nintendo and Microsoft Xbox One with Kinect have great fitness games.  The key they have not cracked yet is how to make them popular.

The recent study in the link below tests and rates the games.  Generally, the games concentrate on balancing skills, cardio and mortor-neuro training.  They also offer assessments how you improve over time.  Check the table in the link to see the fitness goals each system has to offer.

Wii Fit U detects body weight and applied forces and several categories with games that focus on balancing, dance, yoga, aerobics. and strength training.

Xbox One can measure your heart rate without having to wear a monitor and tracks movement accuracy.  It issues challenges to help motivate your workouts.

Personally, I think it’s a great that the gaming companies are trying this.  Now if I can get them to make a Minecraft mod, then maybe they will actually become interested….

Who knows, maybe it can be a new feature for iGo 360, the world’s best fitness club management software.
