Game consoles and fitness: EA Sports Active 2

Techstination feature for Wednesday, January 19, 2011

Video game consoles and fitness.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.       Playing video games isn’t just for couch potatoes anymore.   Nintendo was among the first to get people moving with the Wii system and Wii Fit.    Now…there are more and more fitness titles  designed to take advantage of not only the Wii, but the Kinect system for the Xbox 360 and the Motion controllers for the PlayStation 3.   Gerard Recio is a certified strength and conditioning specialist working with Electronic Arts on EA Sports Active 2….

“If you connect your console to the Internet, all your stats, your average heart rate, max heart rate, calories burned, the reps, the time you work out, all that gets uploaded to our brand new Web site.   And on there you can share and track your data as well as create workout groups.”

Another option…perhaps a bit more guy oriented is EA Sports Active NFL Training Camp.   You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
