This just in: gaming is good for you

I think I solved the ages-old problem of how console gaming makes you fat and lazy. Get yourself a PS2, xbox, or gamecube, and then get a good yoga/pilates/exercise ball and learn a few strength moves with it (I have one of these that is fantastic).

Then just sit on your ball and contine to play games while rolling forward every so often for an abdominal workout. It works especially good with driving games where you don't need to be moving around much (exercise on the straightaways).
