Up! Down! Right! Right! Leftright! Down!
Years ago, I learned about a new video game called Dance Dance Revolution. A pad with arrows is hooked up to the video game system. The player stands on the pad and, as arrows scroll up the screen, steps on the corresponding arrow on the pad.
I decided to try it out, so I bought a Playstation 2, set of pads, and a DDR game version. Soon, I fell in love. The songs were catchy AND made for a good workout - you are constantly moving all around the pad. I thoroughly enjoy playing video games, so I got into "gamer mode" and kept playing longer than I planned because I HAD to pass the song or do better on a song I had been practicing.
Not too long ago, I sold my Playstation 2 and DDR games, because I was getting too busy at work - or so I thought. However, I was able to find a great deal on a PS2 and some DDR pads recently, so I can start again just in time for my new life changes.
The final piece arrived today - a memory card so I can store my progress. I'll be sure to post up how I am doing on this blog.
I would highly recommend this for a fun workout for any age!
