NFL Training Camp may have an NFL spin, but it is a viable aerobic exercise program that uses resistance and isometric and isotonic exercises to produce an aerobic workout targeting different muscle areas. Though there are some challenges tailored to different football positions, like a quarterback challenge that will have user throwing an air football at targets or a placekicker challenge where players boot field goals, all of the exercises are invigorating, will induce a little sweat, and increase your heart rate. As with any exercise program, players should not just jump in and try for a lengthy routine without first working up to it. By associating some exercises to specific NFL positions, kids may find doing this program more fun than doing a straight-out exercise program. However, it is also a decently scaled fitness routine. The graphics and audio portions are pretty good, but the real joys are the health benefits and how the game tracks player fitness on a number of levels.

Online interaction: Players can set up workout groups with family and friends and then chart the progress of those in their groups. This is accomplished through connection to the EA servers. There is no direct communication, and only family or friends can be involved in the groups.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
