Besides movies and family play time, we also use our game systems for serious exercise.
Gift Idea - Zumba Fitness Core the Xbox Kinect or Wii gaming Systems
My husband and I have played a couple of the Zumba games, and we've enjoyed all of them. So far they've all had fun music and engaging choreography. Zumba Fitness Core is a little different in that it is the first video game in the Zumba line that focuses strictly on the abs.

We have the XBox Version, and we have quite a bit of fun doing it for our nightly exercise routine. We usually stick to the low and medium intensity songs because we're not that in shape. The other day our girls tried the high intensity swing and it didn't look too bad so we thought we would give it a try. I'm not going to lie, it was rough. It was crazy fast, and it completely wiped us out. It was fun, but we'll put that one on the side burner for a few more weeks.
To Buy - Zumba Fitness Core retails for $39.99 and can be purchased at retailers nationwide.
We've played both the wii and XBox version of a Zumba game, and I have to say that they are both fun. The main difference is that with the Wii version, you have to wear a belt around your hips and with the Xbox you need the kinect. The kinect version is my favorite because its fun to watch the avatar mimic my movement, and its easier to tell when I'm off. Love them both though.
