Dance Dance Revolution
Though you might feel a little silly doing this, the popular video game Dance Dance Revolution has the potential to give the player a fantastic cardio workout. The game is fairly simple―step on the arrows as the corresponding arrows on the screen match up.
It takes a great deal of practice to become good enough at it, so you're drenched in sweat after every game. But it gives you something to work for. That's the beauty of it―it's a game, and that factor keeps you going even when you get tired.
Yet again, the Playstation is the way to go to make exercise entertaining. Utilizing the Eyetoy camera, Kinetic reflects your image back at you on the screen as you perform various activities in this virtual workout world. You kick, punch, and jump your way to fitness, in a way that's challenging and fun.
You can use this miniature stair stepper while you work, study, or watch TV. You could even put it in front of your Playstation and play what would normally be a sedentary game as you step. Can it get much better?
This way, both you and your furry friend get a workout, and both of you will feel better about it. Plus, it's much like the concept of a workout buddy, in the fact that you have someone to socialize with. Sure, they may not talk back, but that doesn't mean you can't talk to them!
If you don't see anything here that works for you, get creative. Be imaginative. If you've got the will to get in shape and improve your health, you'll certainly find the way that's right for you.
