Do you use video games to work out?

Cowgirl-Cutie Cowgirl-Cutie
I love using kinect for xbox 360 to workout. Some games seem to be duds but others really are fun.

Do you use any games to exercise?

I voted other. I like to play dance dance revolution, but I don't really consider it a workout (although I know others do and it can certainly make you break a sweat)

I've tried a few workout videogames on the Wii and I didn't really like them as much as DDR. The only one I liked was My fitness coach because it was more like a workout dvd that you follow along with than one that uses a balance board or motion detection.

I'm glad people like using them but I haven't liked most of the exercise videogames I've played. I'd rather just do an exercise video if I'm working out at home honestly

Used to use a Wii, but it just wasn't worth the effort compared to regular exercise

I loved using Wii Fitness. Too bad C won't let me have custody of it and the balance board anymore since our separation. :-/

I don't have a connect but if I did I probably would use it for some workouts.

I find it an easy way to save money and not have to deal with the cons that come with gyms, but I don't use them. There is too more temptation to just stop and go do something else like play the other games you have! Getting out of the house isn't that bad and it actually convinces me to work out more since I'm like "I'm already out of the house, I might as well finish the x amount of time I planned to work out today."

I have the Wii fit. I have only used it a couple of times. I really need to get back into the groove of using it. I wasted so much money on the stuff I have got for it and it just sits there.

No, they don't seem to do anything. I've seen results from actual equipment and old fashioned cardio.

I used to before I broke my ankle. I plan to try doing them again as soon as I'm cleared to jump around and be real active. Currently after 2 surgeries, I don't see myself playing Kinect Adventures or Dance Central any time before physical therapy is over.

nope. I purchased that wii board for the wife years ago, but she only used it a few times. So I wont purchase any more of those type of games. Waste of money.
