Holiday Gift Guide ~ Get Fit with Mel B Giveaway

Get Fit With Mel B  My favorite video games these days are the fitness ones.  They give me that little bit of motivation to actually exercise.  When I saw the new Playstation 3 Move, I knew I had to have it!  Family Review Network recently asked me to review the new game, Get Fit with Mel B for the Playstation Move.  I've had my Wii for awhile now, so I was super excited to try a new Fitness game.

From the Manufacturer

Get Fit with Mel B is a comprehensive fitness program created by world-famous Spice Girl Mel B in partnership with leading health experts. The program takes advantage of Sony's brand new Move technology, allowing for a one-on-on fitness experience like no other. The program includes a wide variety of exercises designed to develop strength, tone, flexibility and aerobic fitness and is complemented by full nutritional advice, which includes recipes and shopping lists based on your unique goals, likes and dislikes. It's like having a real personal fitness coach right there in your home!

In Get Fit with Mel B, you will appear on-screen alongside Mel. She will monitor your performance, giving tips on the improvement of form as well as encouragement when the going gets tough. Choose to work out in varied locations, tell Mel your goals, what kind of exercise equipment you have (such as dumbbells, resistance bands etc.) and she will tailor a program just for you.
Get Fit with Mel B is a huge leap forward in the home fitness field and will help you lose the pounds, get in shape or reach a new level of health.

My only problem with the game is that you have to be at least 8 feet from the camera.  I have found other games, you can get away with being a little closer, but not with  Get Fit with Mel B.  Just make sure you have the room to play it.  Otherwise awesome fitness game, I love it!  Warning, you will be sweaty at the end of this workout :)

I have one to Giveaway to one of my US readers.  Just read through the product features, and tell me why you want this game.
