When motion gaming started becoming a huge thing, one of the things that people thought it could be used for was to make exercising more fun. This has led to various titles getting released that are aimed at people looking for alternative ways to lose weight or get fit.

But what if we were to tell you that someone’s found a way to make it definitely more exciting by introducing the element of competition?

The developer doesn’t exactly offer up a lot of details of how he set this up, aside from Faast being one of the tools that he used to put this together in conjunction with the other items we mentioned. It does look like it could be a lot of fun. Imagine having something like this on multiplayer! You’ll be burning those calories away in no time!
