Work out smarter with famous trainers. Experience the world’s best workouts with instant, personalized feedback, right in your home on Xbox Fitness. Train with Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson, P90X, Insanity and more. Optimize every workout with immediate feedback on your form, power and heart rate with the all new Kinect.
This looks like a brilliant coup for Microsoft and Xbox and its one of those no-brainer type of things after the fact. People spend tons of money on those at home DVDs. Shit, I even have a P-90X sitting around somewhere. Giving people the chance to “train with” Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson, Doc Horton and P90X, Shawn T and Insanity right from the crib with instant downloads, updates and social shit via the next Xbox coming out is brilliant.
One, its super cool that you can “optimize every workout with immediate feedback on your form, power and heart rate with the all new Kinect, featuring Muscle Mapping, Power Gauge, and Pulse” which is great for the consumer.
There is the social aspect of it where I’m sure you can post your ‘scores’ and times and whatever else they come up with and log in with your facebook and twitter stuff. And there is the obvious financial benefit for Microsoft by connecting directly with fitness folks. Obvious money for all of the fitness instructors that have made themselves a name.
You know, its almost like being in a bootcamp or cross fit gym without having to leave your house. Seems pretty cool to me.
