Physical activity is important to living a healthy active lifestyle. This hands-on workshop will focus on how exergames (video games that require the player to move) can be used as a healthy alternative to regular video games or traditional sports. Our expert panel will lead roundtable discussions and demonstrations on the use of exergames. Specifically, we will highlight exergames in schools, clinical settings, and fitness clubs.
