It can be hard to get kids to exercise when they'd rather be playing video games, but how about combining the two?
One YMCA in Massachusetts has started a pilot program called the virtual gym. The concept uses video games to get kids to exercise
The games coordinate the children's movement with the character on the screen. Other YMCAs have shown interest in the program, which means virtual gyms could start popping up at other facilities across the country.
