Exer-gaming:

Activity should be as intense and continuous as effort will allow, with only short breaks. This may rule out general gameplay as an effective exercise stimulus. Scoring systems, if available, provide motivation and distraction from intense effort. Currently, one of the best “workouts” is with Wii boxing.
