Sweatin' with the Xbox 360/Kinect

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

I wish someone had told me how fun (and a workout) the Xbox 360 with Kinect was sooner. My hubby and I had debated about getting one for some time and we finally bought one this year as a Christmas gift to ourselves.

So far the games have been a blast and I have been surprised when the I wake up sore the next day. I played a fishing game and I hadn't realized how much I was using my arms and shoulders until the next morning... whew! I just bought one of the workout games and it's a nice option for the usual walk at the park or biking.

My favorite game so far is Just Dance Greatest Hits. The best thing is while your having fun, the time flies and suddenly your sweating and don't want to stop (of course, we make sure not to overdo it/take rests).

A couple of the downsides, it's expensive as you probably know - buying used games at a video gaming store is probably best - and you do need a lot of floor space in front of the system. Luckily, that's not a problem for us. We just reposition the couch.

I think this game system is definitely going to help us towards achieving our fitness goals. Sounds odd to say that by the way after years of playing video games from the couch or planted in front of the computer. This is a refreshing change for us gamer geeks. LOL.

    I have a lot of kinect games and love them. It definitely is an awesome workout. Just from the games I have played on the kinect I have lost 25 pounds. Good luck and keep up the good work.
