Xbox Fitness App Confirmed For Xbox One
Written Friday, September 27, 2013 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Microsoft has announced a new fitness app for Xbox One, imaginatively named 'Xbox Fitness'. A subscription-based service, Xbox Fitness includes workout videos from famous trainers and brands including Jillian Michaels, Beachbody 90X (Tony Horton), Insanity (Shaun T), Tracy Anderson and more.
Xbox Fitness will use Kinect to read your heart rate, gauge which muscles you're using, and track how well you're performing by measuring your balance, tempo and form. Kinect can tell how high you're jumping, how hard you're punching and give you constant feedback.
Available free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers until December 2014, Xbox Fitness will deliver personalised recommendations based on past performance and workout history, with sessions lasting between 10 and 60 minutes. You'll also be able to take on challenges including social competition that you can compare with the rest of the XBL community.
Xbox Fitness is scheduled to launch this 'holiday' for Xbox One, with a free Xbox Fitness Pass valid until December 2014 included with Xbox Live Gold. Check out the trailer for more.
