Having the willpower to exercise is not always easy, otherwise everybody would be perfectly toned and tight and Krispy Kreme doughnuts would sell through the roof. But playing video games? Well any habit that involves staying at home staring at our TV is an easy habit for us to get into. The introduction of Nintendo Wii and games like Rock Band (who doesn't work up a sweat drumming on "Run to the Hills"?) and the now-vintage Dance Dance Revolution challenge us to play games that get us up off the couch. But this is way more Xtreme...

With the XDream Stationery Bike, you can get graphs to show how your stamina and ability has progressed. But what really makes this different from similar computer generated games is just how responsive the software is to your movements. The interactive aspects are amazing, from responsive gear sand brakes attached to your handlebars as well as laterally-moving handlebars so you literally have to pull yourself right or left to adjust your direction.

The XDream has over 400 workouts and there all sorts of features you can play with such as racing a virtual guide, or changing you fitness level to pro for an extra challenge. Check out more here.
