For many people, an exhausting workout at the fitness centre is anything but enjoyable. Many view rowing machines, treadmills and cross-trainers as tools of modern day torture to be suffered in the expectation of a wholesome life.
But in 2019, a fitness trend combining the antics of a high-speed game of Twister with an arcade dancing game is forecast to sweep across the world.
Prama utilising interactive floor and flashing lights to inform participants of their next move, boasts of how it’s shunned traditional exercise bikes, treadmills and rowing machines.
And for those wanting to lose a few pounds after an overeating session last Christmas, a Prama session boasts you could burn 1,000 calories in 45 minutes, and this could be particularly appealing.
A survey by the gym firm found that over a third of households regularly exercise together. It’s hoped the Pam exercise program, which co-ordinates lights, music and tracks the participant’s heartbeat and progress, will be viewed as the newest family game.
While circuit training courses invariably involve individuals working at a set pace, this game uses a computer to set unique levels at every part of the touch-sensitive floor, including grids, patterns and amounts, so various age groups and levels of fitness can exercise at precisely the same time.
