The people at Microsoft have just made it easier for men everywhere to drop their video game controllers and get into shape. And they don’t even need to leave the comfort of their own home in order to do so. In fact, they don’t even need to leave their televisions and Xbox consoles, however, they will need to get their butts up off of their couches if they want to get any results from Xbox’s all new Nike+ Kinect Training program.
Designed by some of Nike’s top trainers and coaches, Nike+ Kinect Training uses real time feedback to provide you with an elite personal training experience at home. No gym membership or expensive trainers fees are required. Instead, all you need is an Xbox Kinect console, a copy of Nike+ Kinect Training and the proper workout gear, and you’ll be ready to shed those unwanted pounds and rediscover those hidden muscles in no time.
Using Kinect’s sensors to track your movements, Nike+ Kinect Training will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses, while correcting any issues with your form and technique. And once it identifies your fitness level, it can create a personalized exercise routine that is suited just for you.
Oftentimes, video games are closely linked to obesity and a lacking fitness level, but it appears as though that could be changing thanks to the recent work by Nike and Microsoft.
