We love to keep this group going with a lot of fun stuff. Sometimes, we have so many things going on, that people miss some of the cool happenings. We will try to keep this post updated on a weekly basis.
We will also try to get weekly updates to you via SparkMail. If it is easier for you, send your e-mail address to KinecttoFitness@gmail.com and we'll send you out updates directly to you.
I'm going to remove the sticky threads from several topics, but for easy access, I'll link them here.
Here is some of the amazing things taking place in YOUR Kinect to Fitness and Health Group:
XBOX 101, HELPFUL TIPS, AND GAMER BUDDIES
We'll be running a regular series that will answer some of the common questions out there. We are constantly getting new members who just bought a Kinect and have loads of questions. Not to mention those of us that have been around video games for a while, may still have questions. Here's what we have: Xbox 101: bit.ly/zrCeDb Community Questions: bit.ly/zsS1wv Gamer Buddies: Post your tag here: bit.ly/n61nQy , and come back here to see what team you are on: bit.ly/n61nQy
REVIEWS, NEWS, AND SOCIAL NETWORKING
If there is a Kinect game out there, chances are someone on this site has played it. We've also created our own website to review games, gather news, features stories, etc. And, to keep us even more connected, we are on several of the major social networks. Come join us!
We've been fortunate enough to give away a lot of stuff recently. A lot of that is due to you all spreading the Spark about the Kinect and this group! So, thank you! We've got some contests going on with prizes (some are U.S. only, but one is open to everyone internationally).
Dance Central - this one is EASY - just take a picture. Swag, songs, and more: bit.ly/yFZhW5 Three Months of Ubisoft - each month, we're giving away another game. Pay close attention to this thread for new ways to gain entries - bit.ly/wC9lNh Win 4,000 Microsoft Points (worth $50 USD) - check here for rules: bit.ly/Aaqx1X and then keep checking weekly challenges. Here is the most recent: bit.ly/xrAwpr
MOTIVATIONAL MEMBERS AND A WALK ACROSS THE COUNTRY
With the Kinect being out just over a year, we've already seen some amazing stories. Check out the latest featured motivational members: bit.ly/wygjUC
We're doing a virtual walk across the country. We'll count steps, miles, or kilometers, so log them in! I'll be back to updating our visited cities soon. bit.ly/pKVQeL
Finally, be sure to welcome each other and befriend one another. Social networks and Xbox friends lists are great, but it goes a long way to reach out to someone's page or blog, here on Spark. Here is the list of all our members, why don't you find someone to say "hi" to? bit.ly/pPb9bR
If there are any questions or suggestions, please make a new thread. If you are new, we would love to get to know you; go ahead and make a new thread too.
