ORIGINAL STORY: Xbox Fitness, a workout app for the Xbox One, was briefly spotted on Microsoft's official Xbox site before it was unceremoniously removed.

Thankfully, DualPixels managed to snag the info from the since removed page, detailing just what Xbox Fitness entailed. Evidently, it's going to use the new Kinect's fancy shmancy added features to better measure player performance. "Optimise every workout with immediate feedback on your form, power and heart rate with the all new Kinect, featuring Muscle Mapping, Power Gauge, and Pulse," read the official description.

The exercise app is also said to feature such celebrity trainers as Tracy Anderson, Jillian Michaels, Tony Horton, and Shaun Thompson.

Intriguingly, Xbox Fitness is purportedly going to be included in the cost of an Xbox Live Gold account, but only until November 2014. After that, getting unlimited access to the fitness app will cost an additional fee.

Xbox Fitness has yet to be officially unveiled, but I've requested a comment on the leak from Microsoft and am awaiting reply.

    UPDATE: Microsoft has now officially announced its upcoming Xbox Fitness service and confirmed its inclusion with Xbox Live Gold memberships until December 2014.

    As detailed in an Xbox Wire blog post, the application will feature a huge library of fitness videos and track your performance copying them.

    Kinect will then read your heart rate without a monitor, track muscle engagement and gauge the quality of your performance.

    Microsoft Announces Xbox Fitness
    Feel the next-gen burn!
    by Lucy O'Brien SEPTEMBER 26, 2013

    Fitness games have tended to be a big deal on Kinect for Xbox 360, so it comes as no surprise that Microsoft has officially revealed its Xbox Fitness app, a subscription-based service for the Xbox One that lets you interact with popular fitness videos through the next-gen console's Kinect sensor.

    According to a post on Xbox Wire, Xbox Fitness will offer personalized program recommendations varying between 10 and 60 minutes in length, and its library of interactive videos comes courtesy of popular screamy trainers like Tony Horton, Shaun T, Jillian Michaels and Tracy Anderson. The app 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," all via Kinect. Xbox Live will be the playground where you compare scores and challenge your friends to beat your performances.



    Xbox Fitness will launch "this holiday," and will be free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers from the launch of Xbox One through to November 2014. From January 2015 onwards, unlimited access requires a paid Xbox Fitness Pass subscription on top of a Gold membership.
