Nike+ Kinect Training
I was never into video games until they got physical and I find working out with a Kinect game even more satisfying than popping in a fitness DVD. The Nike+ Kinect Training ($50) is fun way to get your sweat on in the comfort of your own home. The animated trainers that assess your fitness level and lead you through the personalized workouts provide truly specific feedback. And yes, this does make you work harder. The workout plans are progressive, and as you set up your profile, you commit to working out two to four days a week — the perfect fitness inspiration for the cold and busy holiday season.
