Personal Training video Game!?
Video Gaming and workouts
Earlier today I was asked about the Nike+Kinect fitness game. I decided to take a look into it and just briefly mention my thoughts. Personal training, nutrition counseling, gym
memberships, etc. can become very costly. For that reason, people look for a more financially viable alternative. In general, video workouts, fitness games and the like, are a step forward in tackling the obesity epidemic. However, though it is a better alternative than no activity, many people do not have the body control to master the exercise on their own. They work hard through the exercise and may lose weight their form suffers. In turn losing range of motion and possibly causing more physical damage in the future.
Micoach, was released for X-box only a few months ago. However, though I have not tried Micoach, and am not a fan. One of the advisers for the fitness concept of the game, was Mark Verstegen, one of three fitness professionals in the field, I have the utmost respect for. For this reason, if I was asked to suggest any fitness video game, it would be Adidas’ Micoach. Stay tuned for a slightly more in depth article on video fitness, video game fitness, magazine workouts etc.
