As anyone in the know will tell you, diet is only a part of controlling your cholesterol. Just as important as diet (and possibly even more important) is exercise. If you don’t stay fit, the healthiest diet in the world can only help you to a certain extent. Maybe you already know this, but just haven’t gotten around to a stable exercise routine yet.
Sometimes we need a little extra motivation. No matter how much we know we need to do something (like exercising), getting started can seem impossible. If it’s been a while since you last exercised regularly, it can be especially hard. Luckily, for situations like this, there’s Dungeon Runner: Fitness Quest.
Dungeon Runner is a sidescrolling action game with simple, straightforward combat. What sets it apart from other hack and slash games is that it uses your phone’s camera to record your body movements. This way, you can literally punch your way through dungeons, disposing of monsters and calories alike.
The dungeons (which are pretty much workout plans) progressively increase as you get better. Your starting difficulty level is based on a few initial questions the game asks you, such as your workout level and experience. This means no matter your current level of exercise or previous experience exercising, you’ll be able to jump right in and start burning calories.
Now, Dungeon Runner should be thought of as a supplement to your exercise plan. The dungeons are pretty short, so they’re not enough to constitute a long-term workout regimen. That said, it’s a great way to get you moving and start your day. If you haven’t exercised in a long time, it’s also a great way to get back into fitness in the comfort of your own home.
If all this sounds interesting to you (and you’re reading this on an iPhone or iPad), go download Dungeon Runner on the App Store for free. It’s the most exciting way to finally force yourself off the couch and start getting active. Remember, fitness is a crucial aspect of controlling your cholesterol, no matter how conscious you are of what you eat.
You need to incorporate fitness training into your day-to-day to finally start conquering your cholesterol. If this has always been the hardest part of the equation for you, and especially if you like video games, give Dungeon Runner a try. It’s free, so you have nothing to lose. Download it, place your phone on a table and start exercising your way through some nice dungeon action.
