Since June of this year, I’ve stepped back into a healthier lifestyle. I’m not only eating better, but I’m also exercising again after many years of avoiding it. My two favorite workouts are strength training and running. As much as I love indoor running, it can still get a little boring. My treadmill is in the basement and it doesn’t offer the best view for 30 – 45 minutes every morning. Hi, storage boxes. Oh hello, water tank. The lack of stimulation made me watch my time, minute by minute. Then I found out about Goji Play – an innovative gaming system created to pair up with your favorite cardio workout equipment.
Goji Play: Make Cardio Fun Again
Goji Play directly connects your workout to a variety of video games that make 30 minutes of exercise feel like 5. (Need inspiration? Check out how Holly and her family are getting their workout fun every day with Goji Play.)
Goji was just what I needed to get excited about my morning workouts again. Bonus: it’s great for the whole family – especially the kids**. Tired of seeing them spend all their time glued to a game console? Now they’ll be fighting for their turn to raise their Goji scores instead!
Using Goji Play Is Simple
First: download the Goji Play 2 app (available on iOS and Android devices) and sign up for a free account. Once you’re player profile is set, the controllers work right out of the box. Each Goji Play set comes with left and right controllers. Using the magnetic strap, secure them around the handles of your cardio equipment (treadmill, elliptical, spin bike, stepper, etc) where you normally place your hands. Login to your Goji Play 2 app on your device, follow the short syncing directions on your screen, and you’re ready to go.
The Goji Play controllers can also be used in-hand by wrapping them around the included batons.
Get Ready For Games
Goji Play offers a full menu of video games that you can interact with while you exercise. You’ll find games for every age, fitness level and gaming preference. You can cycle, ‘krunch’ monsters, smash blocks, play trivia, race motorcycles, and more. Each game provides the difficulty level as well, so you know where to start or where to switch it up for a bigger challenge.
So how is this different from just playing a game or watching a video on your device?
First off is the controllers, of course. Dodge, move, jump and more right from your exercise equipment hand grips. But, the truly interactive aspect comes from your own movement. Your Goji Play controllers not only know when you’re moving, but also at what intensity. You use your workout force and/or speed to help control many of the games. Fisticuffs is a great example of keeping your body moving, and it also turned out to be my favorite Goji Play 2 game.
Not only do I need to concentrate on the controllers to dodge and punch, but if I slow down my run then my character’s performance suffers as well. Feel like stopping? Game over – you’re getting knocked out. I found myself running longer and harder JUST so I could win my next match. This game definitely makes me #GetUpAndGoji and I can’t wait to explore even more games as Goji Play releases new, inventive ways to motivate me.
