Meadowlands Area YMCA


Exergame Room


Exergame combines fitness, brain teasers and technology for a gamified experience like no other! Watch our special segment on NBC to see Exergame in action. 

What's Inside? 

Within the Exergame Room are dynamic stations that gamify fitness through video game and competition style challenges. Each module offers awesome benefits that will help anyone from athletes, to seniors, those with special needs, and the average weekend warrior to improve quickness, coordination, strength, memory, agility, endurance, and more.

The stations in the Meadowlands YMCA's Exergame Room are...

Fit Interactive 3 Kick

3 Kick is designed with resilient foam pads that can be punched, kicked, slapped, or tapped with feet or fists. A light randomly illuminates on one of the pads and the player strikes the pad within a time limit and then repeats. It's a more physically engaging style of the classic game "wack-a-mole." 3 Kick is a full body activity that works on hand-eye coordination, improved reaction time, foot work, balance and mental acuity.

waterrower vgs

Escape into a world of total immersion with the WaterRower VGS. Pick from a variety of spectacular virtual reality rowing courses to race through solo or compete against other online rowers. The water fly-wheel provides a smooth, natural resistance that will make it feel like you're actually on the open water. 

Freedom Climber

The Freedom Climber provides all the benefits of climbing without the risk of falling from a 30 ft. wall. The Freedom Climber's rotating climbing surface challenges you even more than traditional climbing. It works to engage every muscle while building grip strength, stamina, balance, coordination, and determination!  

Eyeplay Floor Games

Are you ready to jump, stomp, and run? Eyeplay creates a virtual playground that's packed with over 50 games like Super Soccer, Hockey, Candy world and much more. These games will test coordination, quickness, and mental agility. 

T-Wall 64 

The T-Wall 64 is the all-in-one training center that will test your power, agility, endurance, flexibility and reaction time. Players of all ages will push their limits in solo gamified challenges or contests against multiple users in a "Simon Says" style of game play. 

Fit Interactive Heavy Ball

The concept of Heavy Ball is simple - grab the ball, throw it in the tube, pick it up, and repeat. But the real question is, how fast can you go? Compete against yourself, others or as a team for an exciting round for core engagement, reflex quickness, and leg strength. The Heavy Ball station is excellent for training lateral ability and squat form.
