Get fit on the Xbox 360

June 6th, 2012 by bash Comments

Microsoft and Nike have unveiled ‘Nike+ Kinect Training’ only on Kinect for Xbox 360.

Featuring Nike trainers who work with some of the company’s top athletes, ‘Nike+ Kinect Training’ is a custom training program rooted in elite Nike fitness and specifically designed to help athletes of all levels reach their potential in the comfort of their own homes.

Whatever your fitness goal, ‘Nike+ Kinect Training’ will give you the tools to get you there. Through the magic of Kinect, the personal trainers within the experience can see how your body moves, assess your physical strengths and athleticism, identify areas for improvement, and create a personalized workout plan to help you achieve your personal best.

With real-time feedback to make sure positions and movements are correct, the ‘Nike+ Kinect Training’ custom program evolves as you do, helping you get fitter, faster and stronger

“By combining Nike’s understanding and knowledge of great athletes with the powerful technology of Kinect, we have created a personal training program unlike anything currently available,” said Yusuf Mehdi, corporate vice president of Marketing and Strategy of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft.

“Kinect becomes the eyes for ‘Nike+ Kinect Training’ instructors, bringing a new level of engagement and personalization to the program that blurs the lines between a personal training session and a game.”

‘Nike+ Kinect Training’ will be available exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 during the holiday 2012 season.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
