Microsoft has announced that they are teaming up with Nike to create what they hope will be the ultimate fitness game on the Xbox 360, Nike+ Kinect Training. The game will serve as your own personal trainer, giving you access to a wide variety of exercises and workout plans, but what makes this game different is the integration that it offers. Utilizing Kinect, the game will be able to monitor your activity level and feed you a plethora of information like whether you’re burning calories, or strength training. Nike is promising that the game will be the first fitness game available that truly represents an elite level of training for athletes. Check out the first trailer for the game above. Nike+ Kinect Training will sprint onto the scene this holiday.

TheVerge.Com is reporting that Microsoft will soon unveil Kinect Play Fit, new software that will be built into the Xbox 360 dashboard that will track your exercise and workout activities across appropriate fitness themed Kinect titles. Additionally, Microsoft will release a heart rate monitor accessory called “Joule” that will work across multiple Kinect titles that will allow you to track your own vitals and make sure they’re in line with your weight loss, strength training, or cross-fitness goals. While there are no indications as to when the Kinect Play Fit update will go live (and if it will cost money), or when the Joule accessory will ship, we expect to hear Microsoft detail the whole shebang at E3 which is now just a few weeks away. Stay tuned fitness freaks.
