Connecting the Kinect®
It is very important that you familiarize yourself with the Kinect® and Xbox® before holding the LIFE Program. Thoroughly read the user manuals provided in the Kinect® Bundle or visit http://support.xbox.com/en-US/xbox-360/manuals-specs/manual-specs. These are your best sources of information on how to use the equipment.

Keep in mind that your participants may have a varied range of ability levels, but many will not have any experience with using the XBOX® or Kinect® systems.
Give them adequate time to learn and become comfortable with the exergaming equipment. Some participants may require more assistance than others.
