The Xbox team reached another milestone today with the introduction of “Xbox Fitness,” a new online service built exclusively for Xbox One that takes the world’s most popular fitness videos and makes them interactive. The extensive library of videos from the world’s biggest fitness brands including Beachbody’s P90X® (Tony Horton) and INSANITY® (Shaun T), Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson and others, will be available for free with Xbox Live Gold memberships through December 2014.

Using precision Kinect technology, Xbox Fitness can read your heart rate without a monitor, see which muscles are most engaged by measuring the power, force and transfer of weight in your body, and track the quality of your performance by measuring your balance, tempo and form.

INSANITY’S Shaun T says, “What makes Xbox Fitness so innovative is the feedback it gives you. The Kinect sensor can evaluate your form, tell how high you’re jumping, how hard you’re punching and even read your heart rate. It’s that little missing piece of validation that hasn’t been possible for home fitness products before. Xbox Fitness completes the puzzle.”

Xbox Fitness will deliver personalized program recommendations based on your workout history and past performance, highlight the most popular workouts among Xbox Fitness users, and offer a variety of workouts, from 10 to 60 minutes in length.

Xbox Fitness also helps you push yourself to work harder and stay motivated. Challenges are integrated into your workouts through Xbox Live, tracking your performance history and awards and delivering competitive social challenges. Take on your previous scores, challenge your friends to beat your performance and compare with the Xbox Fitness community.

Xbox Fitness will launch this holiday, just in time to get a jump-start on your New Year’s fitness resolution. With an Xbox Fitness Pass, included free with your Xbox Live Gold membership through December 2014, you’ll have unlimited access to the world’s best workouts, only on Xbox One.

*Xbox Fitness coming Holiday 2013. Starting January 2015, unlimited access requires a paid Xbox Fitness Pass subscription and an Xbox Live Gold membership (both sold separately). Additional Xbox Fitness content is available for purchase, and may vary over time. See xbox.com/xboxfitness.

Lift your arm, eat that Doritos Chip. Work out your jaws! Lift your other arm, suck that Mountain Dew up! Work out your lips! Now repeat that 100 times then go and get more! Repeat from start.

Market it right and it could be the spiritual successor to Wii-fit.

Another desperate attempt to make Kinect relevant.

I can't believe Shaun T is gay.

Did you see the way he was looking at Tracey....?

Edit

I've done the 60 day insanity work out, and it's very good. I recommend it.

Should've got that ex-pornstar who does workout vids on youtube to do it. At least that would get more men interested. Kinect is such a fuck-up, they really should've let it die on 360.

That actually sounds good.

You'd expect a huge marketing push around this too, so could be a massive draw for the console. :o

Edit- Apart from the heart-rate nonsense.

It's a good idea. The Kinect stuff needs to read you accurately (a big if), but if it can do that, then it'll be a real winner.

It's good for Fitness and dance games. It's far better than Move or WiiMote for this shizzle. Providing you have a big enough room and good lighting and all the equipment you need for the workout.

Not that people will care. They just want to do WiiFit's 'exercises' and pretend like standing on a plastic scale for 5 minutes justifies the Dominoes they had last night.

Not really comparable on price though, is it?

I'm quite a fan of the old fitness game, means I can stay relatively in shape and extend my e-penis at the same time. This looks like it might be pretty good, and free is free right?
