Does your family have an interactive game console, like a Wii, Xbox or PS3? Kinect

Do you play interactive games that get you moving (Zumba, Wii Fit, Outdoor Challenge etc..)?  If so, which ones? Not very often, but my oldest and I like the Sports games.. She is pretty good at the Tennis game and I LOVE the volleyball so I play it on professional so it is harder. 

Do you play as a family? sometimes.. it doesn't read our 4 year old very well though.

If you don't have a game console, what types of activies do you do at home?

How do you blend family and fitness? Lilly runs with me after school some nights and on weekends, she also rides her bikes and takes Karate.. Karli tries to run with me( she gets distracted too easily), and is learning to ride a bike. Dh is a runner. We also go geocaching together which gets us out and moving around in the woods.

Does your family have an interactive game console, like a Wii, Xbox or PS3? We do but it has been a while since we have used it.

Do you play interactive games that get you moving (Zumba, Wii Fit, Outdoor Challenge etc..)?  If so, which ones? I have Wii Fit but again, have not used it in a while.

Do you play as a family? We used to but the newness has worn off.

If you don't have a game console, what types of activies do you do at home? We go to the park. Play catch, baseball, tag in the back yard.

How do you blend family and fitness? Playing with my kids.

I have a Wii, but we don't have any exercise games.  When I work out at home, I do the Jillian Michael's 30-Day Shred or run on my treadmill in the basement.

We have an Xbox 360. The kids and I will play Just Dance 3, it's fun . We are playing but it's a workout for me :)
There are a couple other games they play Kinect Adventures and Kinect Sports.

I also do the Zumba for workouts. Kicks my butt every time
