Exergames on FoxTV Arizona

Posted Oct 07 2008 6:26pm

Monday night I was featured in a news segment reported by Keith Yaskin from Fox10 News. The segment was about video games and exercise - was it a legitimate form of physical activity? It basically answered the question most consumers want to know - “Can you lose weight by playing video games?”

I had the opportunity to play a few rounds of tennis on the Nintendo Wii with Keith (which I let him win ONLY because I thought it would be nice to give him the chance to feel victorious). I also demonstrated the ‘workout mode’ in the game Dance Dance Revolution, as well as, feature a produce called Gamercize.

Below is a recording of the segment that aired on TV (sorry for the poor quality… I was rushed for time to put it up. For a clean version, go here ) Enjoy!

I hope this media only adds to the growing exposure exergaming continues to get. I imaging it helps people recognize this is not just a trend - but sign of what’s to come in the world of fitness.
