Nike + Kinect Training

Nike + Kinect Training sneak peek

Believe it or not I’m actually into home fitness. Yes I’ve spent time with a gym membership but to be honest I didn’t really achieve any goals due to not really having a planned regime, little feedback from the staff there and being a bit too scared to enter the bit of the gym with the heavy weights because of all the big muscley guys in there who may decide to pick me up and use me as a weight!

UFC Personal Trainer review

I’m actually quite into my fitness when I can be bothered. I actually did the whole three months of P90X with Tony Horton and although it was tough, it really got my fit.

Boot it up, and even doing the...

Nintendo’s Wii Fit along with its Balance Board was a very popular piece of software, aiming to be a gym in a box complete with a personal trainer and calendar which would keep track of your targets and hopefully motivate you to stay fit at home. To be honest, my balance board is now gathering dust so now it’s time to see if EA Sports Active can get me jumping up and down in front of my TV again. In the box you get the software, a leg strap which you use to holster your nunchuck during some exercises and...

Excessive gaming linked to skin conditions

Games consoles have been blamed for lots of things but now they’re being blamed for skin diseases. Apparently some gamers can suffer from hidradenitis resulting in red, sore lumps on the palms from sweating too much. All I can say is The Elephant Man must have played a lot of PlayStation.
