PWG Day 2: superhero training…
and a walk…of course I went for a walk 🙂
It was quite pleasant and I didn’t need my rain hat which was good 🙂 I wore it anyway, because it is still a hat when it is not raining!
It was a nice walk, I also found lunch en route so that was a benefit!
Later that day there was dancing… well a dance and a walk through of a dance… and the dance was one where I don’t actually have to move a great deal…but still its progress!!
Even later that day there was superhero training…
Real super hero training…by real I mean I found an app. In it you are a pilot and sends you on missions and battles and such, these all correspond to different exercises and you get points or energy or the like for completing the required number of reps or time of the exercise!
I know what you are thinking…
No not that…the bit about how does the app know whether you have done the exercise of not… well it looks at you!! Or to put it another way, it tracks your movement with the front facing camera on your phone 🙂 its pretty snazzy!
I tried it out yesterday, I did the training mission, I press upped some energy into the batteries and punched some missiles into baddies amongst other things 🙂 I think it has the potential to be quite fun 🙂 in addition to this it literally turns working out into a game where I get points for doing things… gamification is a thing!!
Actually, gamification really is a thing, it’s a pretty good thing too…if you are competitive 😀
In case you hadn’t realised, I am reasonably competitive!
