The new Gamercize Pro Sport promises to make you fitter, leaner and more attractive to Britney Spears in one easy stretch. Just hook it up to your Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft games console and use the stepper or cycle attachment to power your game controller. So basically, no exercise, no game. They’re saying that a full workout equals 400–700 calories an hour burned, which is scary. Any game works, and prices for the previous version started at £69.90.
Gamercize interacts with your game console’s controller, stopping it working when you are not exercising and letting you play normally when you are exercising. Gamercize does not limit gameplay by physical skill or ability, and does not make games harder to control. You choose the exercise level for maximum enjoyment of the game and greatest fitness benefit for you. Gamercize can work with any type of exercise machine but cycle and stepper are the best choice, as these machines leave your hands free to operate the controller.
