Lose Weight Watching Reality TV?
I love going to the gym when I want to; but when I feel I have to (after a major holiday feast), then it’s another story all together.
At times like that, I find myself actually packing for the gym. I pack my Iphone, my Ipod, my Ipad, my collection of fashion magazines, and anything else I could imagine needing to distract me from the mundane machines that I will be chained to for the next two hours.
Netpulse, makers of interactive entertainment that’s made especially for the gym, is about to make my (and your) gym-going experience ten times better by adding a custom set of on-demand TV, music, and data tracking to gym equipment!
Most gyms already offer screens on their equipment; however, Netpulse is taking to another level by stepping it up with HD television and touch screens with iPod and iPhone connectivity.
If you need motivation to get your butt into the gym, this may be it. Not only will you be able to watch entire seasons of your favorite housewives someday, but Netpulse even has a virtual trek through realistic landscapes where the treadmill will adjust to the inclines and declines as if on a real run.
Getting into shape isn’t on everyone’s agenda, so it’s refreshing that there are entities dedicated to making the gym experience that much more compelling.
I love the fact that you can be burning fat doing what most of us would be doing anyway – watching TV.
And perhaps this new take on interactive entertainment while working out will lessen the obnoxious set who seem to think the gym is their own domain; you know who I’m speaking of– those who proceed to have audible (to the entire gym) cell phone calls that make us privy to all the ‘TMI” we didn’t sign up for!
