iFit Beware

metatarsal fractureThey say imitation is the highest form of flattery. The iFit from China-based StarQ looks like a mash up of XaviX J-Mat and Active Life Outdoor Challenge.  It looks to be completely operated via the touch-sensitive pad which looks to be at least 2.5 feet wide.  At least if you fall off, it won’t be like falling off a Balance Board and breaking your metatarsal. 80 mini-games for ~ $40 works out to be about $0.50/game. You decide if it’s worth it and enjoy playing the games. Could this be the next gateway exergame? Speaking of getting fit, be sure to check in on Mark Barlet of AbleGamers as he pursues his goals of weight loss and increased fitness levels. Here is his week one posting.
