So my husband is a genius. He managed to persuade me to buy an Xbox Kinect because it would help us workout during the summer months of oven temps. What better arguement could you use to get your wife to buy (another) game system? It did help that he pledged to lose so many pounds before he bought NFL Madden. The game touts that you can call out running routes to players like a real QB, so it's definitely a motivator.
We bought used two games- The Biggest Loser Workout and Dance Central and the Xbox came with a sports game. Then we had some fun. Maybe later, when I get brave I will post some video of Jake and I dancing. To tell the truth, Jake has all the rhythm and I have none. He beats me every time. I happen to be the competitive one, so that's my motivation- someday I will beat him on a song. I should start secretly practicing while he's at work.
Here is some video of the kiddos trying out Dance Central. I will have to post some video of the boys doing the track game where they run and jump hurdles- hilarious!
