Dance pad Revolution The Latest Health Fashion

Nov 6, 2007
DDR revolution, or Dance pad revolution, or simply the DDR game has become quite unavoidably fashionable. In all game arcades, the dance pad revolution nowadays occupies a position of pride, and makes good business with the kids, the youth and the adults similar. But the latest thing about the DDR game is that it is now breaking out in a large way in the field of health and fitness, what with many schools, gymnasiums and health centers ordering these consoles for their patrons.

The concept of the dance pad revolution is not that of an ordinary console game. The game is usually a traditionally arcade game such as pea shooter, Arkanoid, Contra and even the world popular Mario games. But the pace of the game is decided by music. The music is selectable from a big bank of tunes that are already present into the console. The controls of the game are present on a floor pad, which are controlled by jumping upon them. Since the game will play at the speed of the music selected, the pace will be different each time, and scoring in the game will depend on the reflexes of the player.

All fitness centers are much approving of the way in which the dance pad revolution games join both fun and exercise in a very intelligent manner. Most people do not exercise even though they know of their alarming physical conditions because they are not motivated enough. Going for an outdoor cycling or jogging is much of a bother. But if there is such a great motive to exercise, then people would usually do it. This is the concept that the health centers and gyms are trying to cash in upon.

Until a few years ago, aerobic exercises were all the rage in the fitness centers. These exercises were targeted at cardiac health, by bringing about good circulation in the body. In order to keep people pepped up during the aerobic exercises, music tracks were played, which have now been made favor by MTV and VH1 as the cardio videos. These music tracks are typically aired in the mornings when people can exercise. The dance revolution has taken this concept one step further. They have further brought in gaming into the picture. So, people can exercise not just with good music, but also with playing their agreeable arcade games.

Fitness centers are not the only ones to get these DDR consoles. Some corporate offices are getting them too, in order to allow their employees to relax and get some exercise too, after sitting at their desks for long hours. Several people are getting DDR game consoles for their homes, though this trend is still only picking up.
