A NAIT Health and Wellness coordinator has developed a workout plan for Pokemon Go players.
Amy Eversley say it’s not a game you can sit home to play. “It’s just doing what you’re already doing, and taking it to the next level. It can help your fitness and your health and well-being, mentally and physically.”
Eversley says walking is already an integral part of the game. Since players have reported not being able to catch Pokémon while travelling at higher speeds on a bike, play is generally best on foot.
Eversley recommends a goal of covering at least 10 kilometres per week. She says “You’ll hatch eggs, find more Pokémon and reap the health benefits as well.”
She works in different exercises as you reach new levels in the game, hatch an egg, or fly high.
Eversley graduated from NAIT’s Personal Fitness Trainer program in 2010. She works as NAIT’s health and wellness coordinator. (eb)
