Xbox One fitness app

Microsoft has announced a fitness app for the Xbox One that will be included with Xbox Live Gold Membership

Xbox One owners will have a way to shed the extra pounds they put on this Christmas.

Microsoft has announced Xbox Fitness, a work-out app for the Xbox One that uses Kinect to monitor the player's progress. According to the brief on Xbox Wire, Xbox Fitness is a selection of interactive fitness videos from fitness brands Beachboy's P90X and INSANITY. The videos also star some of the brands' more well known trainers such as Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson and Tony Horton (no, I've never heard of them, either).

From the sounds of things, Xbox Fitness will work much the same way as many of the other fitness games released on this generation of consoles. Players will use the Kinect interface and copy the activities of the trainers in the videos.

Kinect will also monitor the player's heart rate and the engagement of their muscle groups in order to gauge their perfomance. Given the improved latency of the Xbox One Kinect module, as well as its improved monitoring of the player's engagement, it's possible Xbox Fitness may not be as infuriating as some of the fitness games on the current gen.

Xbox Fitness will be available for free to all Xbox One owners who purchase an Xbox Live Gold Membership and the app will be available until December 2014.
