The first week of November will be a busy week for us here at Motion Fitness.   Part of our team will be in New York for the Suffolk Zone Professional Development Conference 2012 event held at Sachem School District, and another part of our team will be overseas in Amsterdam at the Games for Health Europe 2012 Conference. Games for Health is a series of conferences that showcase the health and research implications of video games. Back in the spring, Motion Fitness was a sponsor at Games for Health USA which was hosted in Boston and we are proud to be a sponsor again at the Europe version of the conference. Drawing hundreds of professionals from all walks of the industry, the conference is one of the best places to see what is currently available and what will soon be available in the Exergaming industry. Exergaming is a term that has been coined to bridge fitness and video gaming together and is slowly becoming mainstream terminology.

This year Motion Fitness will be focusing on two products at the Games for Health Conference, the iDance group fitness game and the interactive fitness product tWall.  iDance, which is a Dance Dance Revolution like system, can support up to 32 players at a time.  The tWall, which is a high tech interactive light wall, also incorporates multiple players at one time.  The revolving idea behind these two products is a multiplayer aspect that increases motivation and exercise benefit.  Based around gamification, turning fitness into game play, studies are showing that children and adults alike are more likely to reach their fitness goals.
