It’s no secret that I am a horribly inconsistent exerciser. I start exercising and feel good and get into a routine and then something happens. I miss a few days and then suddenly days turn into weeks which turn into months. You get the picture. To sum it up exercise and I have a rocky relationship and a huge part of that is I don’t enjoy it. I enjoy feeling better, I enjoy the benefits but the actual exercising is boring.
Have you heard of Goji Play? Me either until recently. Goji Plays is a way to make exercise go fast by distracting you with games. You purchase the Goji Play 2 controllers and then download the app and games. The controllers perfectly fit on the bars of most ellipticals, exercise bikes and stair machines making them the perfect exercise companion. Simply pull up the game on your phone and start playing. The controllers will wirelessly connect to your account and interact with your phone. Goji Play will also track calories and steps while you play a game that keeps your mind off all the work you are doing. Pretty brilliant right?
So I packed my gym bag and headed out to see if I could really be distracted enough to make my workout feel shorter. Turns out I am pretty easily distracted by a game! I personally played SmashBlocks and found it to be the right level of distraction without being frustrating and making it hard to workout.
I am so excited to share with you that I have a unique offer just for my readers:
