Kids vote for more exercise

Pupils at Hilton Primary School in Derbyshire tested products from Gamercize recently, with the aim of getting children active by using computer games.

Four classes chalked up a combined total of 89 miles, having fun and burning off 10,500 calories in the process.

Gamercize products link mini exercise cycles and steppers to games consoles such as Playstation, Xbox and Gamecube.

The schoolchildren were able to play a choice of games including Super Monkey Ball, Mario Football, Lego Star Wars and Mario Kart, as the kit has been designed to work with all games for all consoles.

When the pupils began to step or cycle, their control pad became activated. They were able to compete against their friends but if they stopped moving their control pad was de-activated and they were temporarily paused out of the game until they began stepping or cycling again.

The day was organised by Derbyshire Schools Sport Partnership and followed encouragement to extend a study carried out last year, which revealed that Gamercize products were six times more popular than exercise on its own.
