5 ways to get fit while gaming

Games are worse than a daily diet of 40 cigarettes, 14 deep fried Mars Bars and downing two bottles of quadruple distilled Russian vodka. Well, that’s if this obnoxiously 90’s healthy gaming poster is to be believed. So to save us all from becoming 40 stone blobs who need our fat asses fork-lifted out of bed, we’ve come up with five totally practical ways to exercise while we game.

Run the London Marathon with this entertaining accessory...

Play a bit of Brain Training while climbing Mount Everest...

Above: Admittedly, this one might ('might') kill you

Run the Rocky stairs while playing PSP...

Use your consoles as dumbbells

Switch to an entirely game-shaped diet...

    How can Virtual Boy help you lose weight? What if you bump something in real life, but the VB makes it look like you earned a coin? Honestly, it just makes you look like an idiot.

    @ dash I can't concentrate on gaming and riding an excersise bike at the same time (mainly cos I game on the PC) but TV works just as well so meh.

    Sorry but these photoshop features are a bit cheap. I used to like it when there were less articles but ones which where a bit more thoughtful and considered, often giving some deeper meaning to gaming. A bit like slug hunting with a blunderbus. I am an old fart though.

    try using the original ps3's as dumbells you'll have level 80 muscles in no time

    When I work out on my exercise bike, I play my PSP to keep my mind off the strain. I can work out for anything up to two hours at a time this way. Without it, I'm lucky if I can stay on my bike for 20 minutes.

    I'm not too busy to look up what a "stone" refers to, but won't anyway. Blimey! Croikey!
