Microsoft will bring a subscription-based Xbox Fitness Pass to Xbox One that lets console owners workout with famous trainers, according to a page that has since been pulled from Xbox.com.
Xbox Fitness will use Microsoft's next-generation Kinect sensor to detect muscle movement and micro-fluctuations in the skin to read a user's heart rate, according to the site. Personal trainers featured in the Xbox One workout program include Tracy Anderson, Jillian Michaels, Tony Horton (co-developer of the P90X program) and Shaun Thompson (creator of the Insanity program). Xbox Fitness promises "the world's best workouts with instant, personalized feedback."
Xbox One's fitness program will be subscription-based, but Xbox Live Gold subscribers will get unlimited access to Xbox Fitness through Nov. 2014, at which time a separate paid Xbox Fitness Pass subscription is required, according to the site.
Update: Microsoft officially confirmed Xbox Fitness today, announcing a holiday 2013 release date. According to a post on Xbox Wire, Xbox Fitness will offer "personalized program recommendations based on your workout history and past performance, highlight the most popular workouts among Xbox Fitness users, and offer a variety of workouts, from 10 to 60 minutes in length."
