"Xbox One takes the world’s most popular fitness videos and makes them interactive."

Microsoft and the Xbox Team have introduced the newest exclusive feature for the Xbox One, interactive fitness videos.

From Microsoft, "The Xbox team reached another milestone today with the introduction of “Xbox Fitness,” a new online service built exclusively for Xbox One that takes the world’s most popular fitness videos and makes them interactive. The extensive library of videos from the world’s biggest fitness brands including Beachbody’s P90X® (Tony Horton) and INSANITY® (Shaun T), Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson and others, will be available for free with Xbox Live Gold memberships through December 2014."

Beyond the collection of fitness videos, the program is built in part around the idea that the new Kinect "can read your heart rate without a monitor, see which muscles are most engaged by measuring the power, force and transfer of weight in your body, and track the quality of your performance by measuring your balance, tempo and form."

The programs, which are based off of famous workouts will feature Challenges which are integrated into Xbox Live, and involve aspects like challenging your friends and the rest of the Xbox Fitness Community.

"Xbox Fitness will launch this holiday, just in time to get a jump-start on your New Year’s fitness resolution. With an Xbox Fitness Pass, included free with your Xbox Live Gold membership through December 2014, you’ll have unlimited access to the world’s best workouts, only on Xbox One."
