Brief Summary:
The purpose of this study is to gather information on how much exercising with video games (ExerGaming) can increase the physical activity among overweight and youth. This study will try to see if participating in physical activity and exercising with video games at the same time can make overweight children move around more to better their own health. The hypothesis is that those in Exergaming arm will physiological changes and increase physical activity.

Arm Intervention/treatment
No Intervention: Usual Physical Activity
Participants in this arm are do not have access to Exergames, only usual physical activity at the gym
Experimental: Exergaming
Participants in this arm will have access to usual physical activity at the gym as well as access to Exergaming equipment (video games that require physical activity)
Behavioral: Exergaming
Participants will have access to Exergaming equipment (video games that require physical activity)




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in mean daily physical activity [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    Change in mean daily physical activity from baseline (7-day activity log expressed as Kcal/day from relative MET intensity


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in caloric expenditure, body composition, and BMI [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
    (a) Total daily caloric expenditure, (b) change in body composition (total body estimates of fat mass, fat-free mass, and lean body mass), and (c) change in BMI z score from baseline.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • male and female
  • aged 12-14 years
  • baseline BMI > 25
  • gender- and age-specific 85th percentile cutoff points from the CDC growth chart
  • parental consent and subject assent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • subjects not meeting the inclusion criteria or with physician-determined musculoskeletal, cardiopulmonary, metabolic, psychological, neuro-developmental or behavioral conditions that make mild-to-moderate physical activity potentially hazardous.
  • Participants under the age of 12 are excluded from the study because Weingart YMCA has an age policy. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed to be at the facility alone. Therefore, the minimum age for the study is 12 years old so supervision is not a problem.
