Who would've thought that video games could whip you into shape?

My DH and I were playing Dance Central on the Kinect last night, and he asked me that.

I can do the dance for Push It by Salt N Pepa on the hard level ONCE, and I'm more exhausted than I would be if I were running on the treadmill for an hour.

  • That's great!! I love video games that make it feel like you aren't exercising. I love my Wii for that very reason.
