I saw something recently about the Fitstar app, and how it customizes workouts for you. You can get two workouts a week for free, so I figured I’d give it a try to see if it’s worthwhile.
I really appreciate how the workouts are structured and demonstrated, and the combination of audio and visual cues. Plus, you give feedback after each exercise on how much you did and how it felt. And if my sore muscles are any indication, the workouts are definitely worthwhile.
What is it about this game? I started playing Dots (the original game) about 2.5 years ago. I was in Santa Fe, a week after being hired, meeting all my new coworkers in person for the first time. Dots was all the rage.
It was fun, but after a while it became repetitive. I pulled it out every once in a while, when I was bored, but mostly I stopped playing it. And then: Two Dots. This game has levels and introduces new challenges, and I can’t help but play it. I might take breaks now and then, but there’s something so compelling that keeps bringing me back … I’m actually too ashamed to admit what level I’m on now. All I’ll say is that it’s great!
