Exergaming is physical video gaming for health and fitness.

Exergaming is a new and very exciting form of physical activity that seamlessly blends sensor technologies (cameras, body sensors and hand held remotes) and video gaming technologies in such a way that you are required to ‘move’ to fully interact and best experience the exergame. Most importantly, exergaming is FUN and fun is contagious, addictive and a great motivator to help improve our health and fitness – Serious Fun.

To qualify as a ‘healthy’ exergame, the game has to be impossible (or difficult) to play without significant physical movement.  Healthy exergames encourage game-play that immerses and therefore engages the user in the exergaming experience. The technology interfaces should be intuitive and seamless so the game responds accurately to the player’s movements. With this enhanced ‘physical’ game-play, there is the opportunity to create a tremendously beneficial health and fitness experience that is highly motivating and sustainable –  The Exergaming Network (TEN) has created a rating system for Exergames.

At Exergaming Australia, we demand a lot from an exergame before bringing it into our product line.  Our premiere solution is the multi-award winning iDANCE2 system. iDANCE2 won 4 catagories of the TEN ExerGaming Awards in 2010 including Best Group Exergame. This is a breathtaking large group solution that sets the standard for exergames world wide and we are very proud to be the Australian Distributor and pioneer this system throughout our region.

Doing is believing! To best understand the compelling experience offered by a quality commerical exergame you need to get yourself ‘In the Game’. Our XSITE Fitness & Showcase Centre is perfectly equipped to offer everyone a group exergaming experience that redefines what health and fitness can achieve in this day and age.

iDANCE2 is an award winning
bundle of awesomeness

iDANCE2 is our premiere solution. It is a music driven multi-player game (up to 32 simultaneous players) that combines video gaming, music, dancing (stepping) and exercise.

The players follow arrows on the giant video screen, and step/stomp on the corresponding arrows on their wireless machine dance mat. The pressure sensitive arrows on the mat will sense how accurately you are stepping and your score is presented on the screen in realtime as you play through each song and level.

iDANCE2 has 25 difficulty levels, starting from “So easy anyone can do it” up to “that’s impossible – I can’t even see the arrows!” As your mind and body become accustomed to the game-play, your skills will naturally improve and you begin to rise through the levels.

iDANCE2 gathers feedback about all participants performance. This data is tremendously motivating and encourages players to push to higher levels and demand more of themselves physically and mentally. This data includes how many steps taken, how many arrows were missed or hit perfectly, results on the players step timing, high scores plus details on each song with beats per minute, jumps in each song and so on.

The highly immersive and engaging nature of the iDANCE2 means time simply flys by and before you know it, your physically spent and attained new personal high scores and enjoyed an amazing and highly social health and fitness experience.

iDANCE2 is a quite remarkable at making exercise fun first. We have a phrase for it, we call it ‘Stealth Health’ and it works!
