Los Angeles (KNBC) -- There is a new program that makes kids workout to watch television.
123 Go TV, is a bike trainer that attaches to any television. To keep the TV going, you have to spin the wheels on the bike. If you stop pedaling, the screen goes blank.
The parents of 13-year-old Evi November got the device to help motivate their daughter to exercise more.
"She only has an hour and a half to two hours of exercise a week at her school which isn't considered enough, so we could be looking for a way to supplement her exercise routine," said Evi's parents, Marty and Karen November.
When the wheel on the device is moving, it powers a transmitter to attach to the bike rack. That signals a receiver hooked up to the TV to stream the video feed. As soon as the wheel stops, the video signal dies.
Evi's mother has thinning bones and doesn't want that to happen to her daughter.
"The primary time to build bones for Evi is now," said Karen. "So she really needs to exercise, and participate in a challenge that builds her bones which bicycling does do."
