Exercise While You Game With Gamercize

Just hearing the word "Gamercize" made me think of the good ol' days when Jazzercize classes were still hip. Unlike Jazzercize where you get your dance on, Gamercize is used with the Playstation 2 to get your heart rate pumping while you play your favorite video game.

When I spotted this device on Coolest-Gadgets I thought it was another fad that wouldn't be nearly as effective as the Wii for physical activity. Then I learned that the Gamercize GC Sport's controller will disconnect from the PS2 as soon as your pace slows. Once you get moving again, the game will resume — basically forcing you to get your butt moving!

There are two Gamercize products, the Power Stepper and Endurance Cycle, which range in price from $159.99 to $179.99. You can purchase them from Think Geek.

I think its a good idea, it could give ppl a reason to stick with their workout routine.

I like this idea. I have a stationary bike but I sometimes have trouble doing both.

i guess not everyone has a wii. :) looks great. even if this is a fad, it seems like a good one - people buying something for their console to exercise and you still get that gaming, this is fun feeling?! i'm into that.

That's a great idea! You can't play Wii Boxing all the time so this would be a cool thing to have.
