As part of your FruitGuys subscription, we provide you and your employees online access to UC Berkeley's Wellness Letter, the newsletter of nutrition, fitness and self-care. It translates leading-edge research into practical advice for daily living--at home, at work, while exercising, shopping, or cooking.
Highlight from the September Wellness Letter:
“Exergaming” or “exertainment” is the latest video game craze, which allows you to play sports “virtually” and perform other activities using new interactive computer technology. You can, for example, box, bowl, play tennis, shoot hoops, snowboard, even walk a tightrope, all from the comfort of your living room. Several companies make these active gaming systems, but the most popular is Nintendo Wii. Using a hand-held controller with digital motion sensors, you simulate the movements needed to perform the activity, as an onscreen character depicts your movement in real time. It sounds invigorating, but is it real exercise or just fun and games?
