It is amusing how the introduction of motion based controls on video game console have opened the floodgates that had apparently been holding back a huge number of celebrity-endorsed fitness games.  One such celebrity looking to get in on the craze is Mel B, of Spice Girls fame. Sure, she has a solo singing career and Dancing With The Stars to add to her resume in recent years, but who knew she was such a fitness guru?  Her debut fitness game, Get Fit with MelB is now available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii, with a recent addition to the software suite landing on iOS.

The Get Fit with MelB app is not a stand-alone fitness tool, but rather, a tool to keep track of your personal eating and exercise behaviors while away from the console version of the game.  Some of the headlining features include:

  • Update your Dietary Diary: remember what you eat during breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack; it’s an essential tool for keeping under control your diet!
  • Full Body Tracking: keep an eye on your training results thanks to a user friendly graphics; you choose what body’s part has to be monitored, the main indicators like body mass index, %fat mass, Waist to Hip Ratio
  • Thanks to your iPhone, after each training (in your gym, on the beach or at the park) you can update your observations saving the results of your efforts! Your data will be saved on your profile and if you are at home you can check through web and print it!
  • Look at MelB exclusive recipe book: breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snack … an useful source of “slim” recipes always with you, to be consulted in each moment of your day

This looks like just what a person would need to help keep themselves honest, day in and day out.  Unfortunately, the only way that you will see much of a benefit will be if you actually own the console game and have an online account.  If nothing else you might get some interesting recopies out of the deal.  Give it a download and let us know in the comments below if it is everything you hoped it would be.
