And now, Exergaming! Recently at the Trotter YMCA, the Y of Greater Houston implemented a full scale Fitness and Gaming room in their teen center. Exergaming, also known as interactive fitness, is a type of physical activity that combines exercise with video gaming technology. It involves using gaming equipment that tracks the user’s body movements and incorporates them into the gameplay.
Exergame sees the true value in inspiring kids to be more active, by using their interests in gaming and technology.
