 READING COMPREHENSION: GET REST AND EXERCISE!

In some video games, you only sit on the sofa and play. This is fun, but you don´t get much exercise. In other video games, you have fun and get exercise. In these games, you move your whole body! A camera records the way you move. You can dance, run, or pretend to play soccer and watch yourself on the screen. These video games are a great way to keep fit. They make your muscles strong, but you don’t get enough fresh air. Why don´t you play a real game of soccer outside with your friends?
