But Microsoft's new and highly detailed Kinect sensor enables an entirely new type of interactivity on the Xbox One, making use of muscle mapping, balance calculations, and limb orientation detection. Fitness on the Xbox One isn't just about awkward video game workouts with big motions like squats and lunges Microsoft is trying to open up the platform to established exercise programs and create an experience based on perfect balance, form, and intensity. The Xbox One is launching with a few big-name programs, such as Tony Horton's P90X and Shaun T's Insanity, along with workouts from well-known trainers like Tracy Anderson and Jillian Michaels. Titles can be purchased individually, for about the same cost as buying the DVD, or are available free for Xbox Live Gold members through December 2014 (subscription pricing after that date still hasn't been finalized). The new technology is a big win for Xbox, expanding its appeal to include the loyal followers of established fitness trainers. Instead of creating new workout routines to fit within the confines of limited technology, the Xbox One is able to tailor itself around workouts that are designed first for the human body. Tackling P90X on Xbox Fitness is the same as purchasing the DVDs, but with digital benefits like instant feedback, automated progress tracking, and an optional link to Xbox Live friends.
