Posted by rhondascooking on November 24, 2011
I’m not a hard core gamer, but since Microsoft released its Kinect for XBox 360 I’ve turned into a HUGE fan thanks to games like “Your Shape”, “The Biggest Loser”, and “Adventure Games.” I’m sure you’re wondering why and the answer is simple–these games make me sweat! After setting up my Kinect and launching the first game, it was so much fun, and it left me drenched in sweat with an elevated heart rate and gasping for air! I thought to myself, “Wow, I’m out of shape!”
Also, with games like ”Your Shape” I’m able to have my own personal trainer in the comfort of my home–no need to pay gym membership and trainer fees. This game is truly amazing; I’m can set workout routines that complement my goals and body profile. There is no special device to hold during the workout; the Kinect senor senses my body and all I have to do is just get moving!
I know that many Parents struggle with decidng whether to purchase a video game console for their childbren, but I believe that XBox 360 is worth adding to the wishlist! This console can help encourage children to exercise more which helps in reducing obesity or heart disease, which are ideal. Just integrate exercise fitness game play with their favorite games, such as for every 15 minutes of regular game play, there will be 15 minutes of fitness game time! Lastly, not only is the the XBox 360 an awesome gaming console, but also it is a great all-around home entertainment center that delivers both Live and On-Demand content.
So, no matter the occasion, XBox 360 with the Kinect are indeed must have’s for any family!
