It’s all fun and games until someone has to work out. Then, it’s still fun and games! Did you know that with the right app and Blue Goji’s Goji Play 2.0, working out can be fun again?
This blog post was sponsored by Blue Goji, but the opinions are completely my own based on my experience.
I don’t know a single person that wakes up excited to work out. It’s a chore. While it makes you feel great when you’re done, it can be difficult getting motivated. For me, it’s hard to keep going. For either of these workout-related issues, Blue Goji has developed a sort of gaming system combined with a fun way to exercise called Goji Play 2.0 and we had a ball with it!
You can attach the two controllers to the handles on your elliptical, treadmill, or other favorite equipment. If you don’t have handles, Goji Play comes with batons to which the controllers can attach. They connect to, and interact with, games developed by Blue Goji. Using your camera, it can tell when you’re moving (and when you’re not) and how fast or slow you’re moving, which does affect game play.
I played a game called Fisticuffs. At first, it was difficult to learn the controls and the timing of movements. It also takes a great degree of coordination, which is something I lack, but it didn’t cause too many problems during game play (or my fight, as it were).
Honestly, if you’re forced to walk on a treadmill or elliptical, especially if you don’t have a view, even music can’t save the boredom. This is a great way to make time pass quickly because you’re having fun while you’re working out.
