Hey, Althaea just lost 100 pounds! Thanks World of Warcraft!

Imitating the folks who have attached a treadmill to their computers in order to simulate the real WoW experience, a player from the Eitrigg server claims that he has lost over 100 pounds by traversing the lands of Azeroth via "WarBiking". In an interview with WoWInsider, the entity known as Althaea said:

"I'd been thinking about the treadmill for several months. I don't know whether it was before or after the apnea diagnosis, but I did come across some of the "everyday exercise" research that's going on at the Mayo Clinic. Basically, though, I'd been thinking that I only use a few left-hand key bindings for most of my WoW play, and I use the arrow keys for movement (I know, I know, L2P, blah blah blah) -- so why couldn't I rig up some sort of way to put a computer on a treadmill and play?"

Yes, why not? Because not only did he shed the weight, but according to the interview, the WoW excercise also helped him diagnose his sleep apnea. Amazing! We're still trying to blueprint our own exercise contraption. Hit the jump to see the WoW treadmill in action!
