    This is a good thing imo. It's like a step aerobics class really or line dancing tbh, only thing is they are being taught by a screen not a tutor.

    Brilliant idea, I've yet to meet someone who doesn't like DDR (whether openly or in private whispers), and I've met lots of people who could use the exercise.
    They should have machines in offices, too. Better than sitting down on your lunch break, since that's what you do all the rest of the time.

    Aye, they started doing this in my home state back in 2005. Great program really as it has helped loads of kids get into a healthy shape.

    lol! if people cant sort there weight problems out themselves it shouldnt be everyone elses problem, you have legs, run, i have no time for unhealthy and fat people. As for children, its more than likely the diet, parents need to stop being lazy and give them decent meals, and scrap school dinners full stop. bring back the cain, such a lack of discipline in this country and all over the world.

    PE would be an awful lot more popular if PE teachers weren't such a predictable bunch of neanderthal sadists.

    You got spoken to? We just got the balls thrown at our heads. I think we only stopped playing once, and that was because half a building collapsed.

    Good idea putting it in the schools in my opinion. Good exercise, and lets kids pWn some n00bs at the same time. Great combination!

    Kids should just do sport but if it helps those who have no intrest then fair enough although id rather play a game of football or volleyball any day of the week.

    I thought that at first, but now I'm older and wiser I saw the wisdom in my old PE teachers ways. We're all lazy gits really when we are at schools and half of us are probably totally unfit from lack of exercise, well apart from well developed wrist muscles from all that gaming (diiiirty - what did you expect me to type?)

    Can you really see some little, slightly over-weight teenager running all the time if the teacher wasn't on their back provoking them to run and exercise more? Nope - Neither can I.
