For us exercising and playing video games is not only a way for us to relax and escape our worries but its also the perfect time to get fit and to keep the mind, body and spirit healthy. As hardcore gaming enthusiasts of both old games and new ones there is rarely a game designed around fitness that we do not take liking two.
