The Future of Fitness



I used to love going to the gym, but then marriage, a child, and a full-time job started to make serious inroads into my “me” time. But that doesn’t mean I’ve stopped working out. On the contrary, it’s never been easier to throw on some exercise gear, work up a sweat, and shed those extra Holiday pounds. The reason? Xbox 360 with Kinect.

Ever since Microsoft introduced the Kinect motion sensor back in 2010, the quality of fitness video games has improved exponentially. First there was Dance Central, which was part dance moves, part workout; it continued with EA Sports Active 2 and the Zumba Fitness series; and arguably it peaked last year with Your Shape Fitness Evolved 2012. But now, an entirely different type of fitness experience is available through Nike+ Kinect Training.

Nike+ Kinect Training allows you to construct a workout program that is specifically designed for you in terms of your weight, shape, fitness level and, most importantly, your fitness goals. The personalization extends to your choice of trainer, and the days of the week and times that suit you best.

Once you are into your routine, Nike+ Kinect Training constantly assesses your performance and adjusts your workouts to make sure they stay challenging and fun. Over-achieve and Nike+ Kinect Training will automatically adjust your goals and push you harder; under-achieve and it will redesign your routines to get you back on track!

Progress is monitored through Fuel Print, a constantly updated history of your performances, which helps you establish both a benchmark for your workouts and the criteria for future goal-setting. And in a Facebook-dominated world, Nike+ Kinect Training is not going to let you train alone. You can use Xbox LIVE to set up group workout routines with friends and family, take part in global challenges, and even get feedback and encouragement from top Nike athletes.

Nike+ Kinect Training is not just for adults – your kids will also love the constant movement and great music. In many ways Nike+ Kinect Training transcends the usual workout genre, demonstrating both the amazing potential of Kinect and the opportunities of a constantly networked world. You can now get healthy in your own home while loving the experience. Now that’s the future of fitness!

The Online Mom LLC receives a fee for participating in certain promotional programs for Xbox. All opinions are my own.
