It’s amazing the difference fun can make in anything. Goji Play 2 is the fun I need to motivate me to exercise. Since taking an office job, my weight is out of control. The largest contributing factor is I sit down all day. I know this. I bought a membership to a gym, but that quickly fizzled because walking on a treadmill going nowhere is, well–boring. I tried the stationary bike–same issue. The elliptical has a lot of moving parts for me. All excuses. The truth is, I’d rather be home playing video games with my family.
And then I came to know Goji Play 2.
I jumped on the elliptical machine at the gym. I put the Goji Play controllers (two rubber straps that look like cartoon wristwatches). Each strap has a built-in game controller with buttons and can be wrapped around the handles of cardio machines such as elliptical machines and stair steppers, or held.
I looked over to the treadmill and there was a man, running like his life depended on it. This normally would have had me turn around–I knew this was going to be tough, and I now had an audience. There was sweat. My muscles screamed. I had to keep going.
Then, I realized something so out of character for me in a gym…I was having fun! It’s the whole point of Goji Play 2 and it is brilliant.
While I worked out on the elliptical machine, I was playing the mobile game, “Smash the Blocks“, one of several game apps that work with the Goji Play 2 exercise system. It transforms exercise equipment with downloadable games of iOS and Android, using the smartphone or tablet’s built-in camera and sensors to track the user’s fitness activity.
Goji Play 2 Works with Your Mobile Device and Gym Equipment
I did find it a little challenging initially to move the elliptical arm-movers and coordinate my finger movements to move my yellow ball in the game to Smash the Blocks. As I’ve used Goji Play 2 more, I have developed more skill.
Each game is its own individual app. It takes a few minutes for the apps to load on my iPhone 6 Plus, so I have learned to download the app first. Right now there are five games, but by the new year, expect 15.
Goji Play 2.0 is FUN!
This being said, I found time passing quickly–my 30-minute workout felt like 5-minutes. It also brings out my competitive nature as I find myself saying, “Just one more level.” And when I am done, I can boast, brag or simply share, my score with my friends and family in the GojiVerse…you can even send the game, in a couple of the apps, the see if they can beat your score.
And that’s the great thing about Goji Play 2–it is created with the entire family in mind. My kiddos love video games. They’ll play outside, but the video game console whispers to them and they obey. With Goji Play 2, everyone can play and be competitive. Goji Play is unsuitable for children under 6-years of age.
I love that I don’t have to be a fitness expert or gamer to benefit or have fun. It’s easy to Goji Play!
I’ve exercised more, and more frequently, since received the Goji Play 2. I look forward to some game time where I can #GetUpAndGojiPlay
