Yourself!Fitness – Fitness Comes to the Home Computer

You’ve heard of DDR (Dance, Dance, Revolution), and now there is Yourself!Fitness, developed by a Portland, Oregon company and now available for the PC (plus game consoles such as XBox and PlayStation). Here is a link to the XBox site’s review of Yourself!Fitness which is an excellent overview.

After checking it out, pop on over to the Yourself!Fitness forum and check in with people using the game.

Both excellent ways to get fit in the comfort of your own home. Your kids will love these too. You might just find yourself having to fight for time to use them actually

Lose Weight With XBox

Game developers are really starting to make sense now. They’ve realized that it’s not just about gaming but about getting involved in the game, and that’s brought about the development of Yourself!Fitness.

Brainchild of Phin Barnes of responDesign, a Portland, Oregon company. Barnes noticed all the video games given as gifts to guys at Christmas and wondered what about the ladies? Sort of sexist but I don’t care. He won a contract to develop a virtual personal trainer game for the XBox from Microsoft and two short years later Yourself!Fitness is selling out their first run of 50,000 games.

Stephanie Montgomery, Director of Reebok University said, “I believe Yourself!Fitness gives women a reason to care about the Xbox(R) and opens the door to video games in general.”
