Get fit for free.
We could use a little more exercise, let’s face it. Microsoft has provided a way to make that happen while playing games. Download the Xbox Fitness app and, if you have an Xbox Live Gold account, you’ll have access to a number of different introductory workouts free of charge for the next six months, including programs by Jillian Michaels, Tracey Anderson and Shaun T of Insanity infamy. The comprehensive service uses the Kinect to track your heart rate and muscles, estimate calories burned, and provide feedback on your form, balance, and power. If you want to continue on after those initial trial workouts you’re going to have to pay for it, but it’s still cheaper than that gym membership, and you don’t even have to leave the house to use it.
