Harley Pasternak’s Hollywood #Exergame Workout

Celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak will have Hollywood (#Exergame) Workout released this fall for Xbox Kinect and Wii. Looking at the first screenshots it appears that New Balance has a substantial in-game advertising presence as their logo is on the workout mats.



This is the second big exergame title with a virtual trainer and overall the third exergame workout (to music) announcement within a couple of weeks.

Exergaming Points to Ponder (P2P)
  • All the gameplay shows no use of the Wii Balance Board or remotes but some of the graphics (see above) do. It'll be hard to do some of the dance moves on the board, and unsafe.
  • It looks to be similar to Your Shape, Wii Fit, EA SPORTS Active / NFL Training Camp,  and Just Dance where you follow the leader / trainer.
  • I'm still not sold on the interface without a camera showing live feedback (my biggest criticism of Kinect).
  • Will there be Joule-like compatibility with heart-rate displayed on screen?
  • I'm also interested in seeing the fitness data tracking feature as that is such an important areas for wellness and healthcare.
