Get fit while playing video games
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Here's a way to turn your love of video games into a great workout regime as well.

PowerGrid Fitness is selling a product called the kiloWatt Intensity Gaming System.

It looks like a machine you might see at the local gym.

There is a single shoulder-height joystick for your controller. There is a back brace to push against. When you push, sensitive sensors measure the strain you are placing on an alloy metal resistance rod and a microprocessor calculates how hard you're pushing.

The more you push, the more power you have playing the video game.

So while you battle space aliens or mutants or whatever, you are getting a high intensity workout.

Among the titles that are perfect fits for the kiloWatt system are "Grand Theft Auto: Vice City" and "Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets."
