Why Xbox Fitness Will Not Be Enough

On November 22nd the Xbox One launches worldwide with a new Kinect 2.0 sensor and the ability to improve your fitness. Gamerz Health know what you are thinking, a games console that will improve my fitness? Gamerz Health have tired the Nintendo Wii and that didn’t really do it for us, there is no way that ‘fitness games’ will work! (Xbox Fitness, Xbox One)

Eat less, train more- the only sensible way to shift weight.
Naga  +   408d ago
Eat well, rather. The quality of calories we take in often matters much more than the quantity.

Less games, more exercise.

eating less ahaha confirmed for knowing nothing about diet you should calculate your calorie intake it depends on weight right now i am bulking so i go 1000kcal over my maintance but from january cutting phase so maintance -500kcal ez

So the article doesn't saying anything about the technology, just that you need to eat healthier, got it..
Bigpappy  +   408d ago
I am quite sure that there is also an eating guide for Xbox fitness. I am sure I read that recently.
AgentFlash  +   408d ago
Unfortunately as you train more you have to eat more to replace the energy you have used, otherwise your metabolism slows down leaving your body with less energy to repair itself. This will eventually cause injury and illness, until you start to eat normal amounts again.

As long as you are eating nutritious foods you can eat as much as you want, train more and you will need more nutrients.
Bigpappy  +   408d ago
It really isn't about how much you eat. It is all about what you eat.
PimpDaddy  +   408d ago
It's actually both. The quantity depends on your age, weight, height, gender, and the amount of exercise you do every day. The quality depends on what your fitness goals are and other health factors...
RevXM  +   408d ago
well you have to fill a certain amount of everything to funtion properly though.

I workout at the gym 5-6 days a week. Eat a solid breakfast and dinner, drink 4-5 protein shakes and take ZMA and creatine supplements. But Im building mass and strenght, others might just want a lower % of fat or just keep in shape. Exercise is good for the mind too.

Used to run a lot, initially to loose weight, but I kept doing it to put my mind to ease and beat my own "lap times". My last record is like 40 minutes at 10km.

But most people dont have to work to hard to get in better shape, truly does something just to walk more, sit less and eat a variety of decent food most of the time. Doesnt have to be a meager salad. just proper food.

If you are serious about fitness then Xbox Fitness will be a great tool. There is not "one" solution to getting in shape and being healthy. Its diet, exercise routines, mental strength, the right kinds of tools / exercises to achieve your goal, and diet again! And by diet I mean eating the right kinds of foods, and the right amounts...which as AgentFlash pointed out doesn't necessarily mean skimping on meals but instead fueling your body correctly.

Honestly, I can see this being a big thing to bring in some fitness enthusiasts, or casual people who are impressed by tech.
sashimi  +   408d ago
fitness enthusiast work out at the gym or outdoors with more natural means. They don't really follow some game. Casuals sure but the fact that the console cost 500 would repel most.
feraldrgn  +   408d ago
Fair point, I forgot the price.
During an unboxing video (PS4, I think it was a radio host), they said $400 is a lot, so I don't know what their reaction would be for $500.

I'm sure casuals with a decent pay roll won't mind though.
mhunterjr  +   408d ago
What about the fitness enthusiasts who are also gamers? Or who happen to live with gamers? It's not just about being a system seller... It's about getting more people in the household to use the system.
Trekster_Gamer  +   408d ago
Your incorrect. People spend more than that for gyms they might or might not use, instructional DVD's ect ect. This is great it's there waiting for you, save gas driving to your place of exercise,
Hicken  +   407d ago
Fitness enthusiasts who are also gamers will likely have their own gym memberships or equipment already. At best, Kinect Fitness could be a decent supplement, but if they're enthusiasts, they likely already know everything that game could show them, and possibly have a better/more precise way to do the workouts.

Kinect fitness 2012 worked quite well for me, especially as I don't have the funds or time to get to the gym. My missus enjoyed it too and felt a nice difference after time. I welcome this new one as I think the tech has come on in leaps to provide us with a good bit of well needed excercise.
kewlkat007  +   408d ago
I know plenty people that been doing the p90x and that insanity one..This is nice because it tracks your progress. My go is accepting the xboxone into the house because of..lol

AgentFlash  +   406d ago
Gotta start a business somewhere! I have been working in fitness for 15 years, this is a new project as we push to online coaching. Already have a lot of my current clients who have trialled the 14 day plan so i know it works :)
GoPanthers999  +   408d ago
Fitness games will only work if the individual is committed to getting in shape. This is just a new, cool way to do it.

XD Bubble to you sir.
Indo  +   408d ago
Getting fit requires 80% mental and 30% physical. And nutrition accounts for all weight loss success .
AgentFlash  +   406d ago
Yup the mental side is extremely important!
HumanAfterAll  +   408d ago
Because I'm not buying any Xbox for Fitness.

I buy it for adventures and characters and fun… and… no...fire..n..d..s

Guess I should adventure to the gym now.

Who am I kidding? I don't go to those places XD
Trekster_Gamer  +   408d ago
You are closeminded. The Xbox One does awesome gaming off all types and so much more!!
HumanAfterAll  +   408d ago
Dude…Chill. I'm well aware. I guess a lot more people are devoid of a sense of humor.

SMH.

Great more useless workout games for a console. Exactly the reason the Kinect should be gone. More of the same BS games. The kinect was the biggest waste of money I spent when I had an xbox. Gamestop only gave me 15 dollars for it. It is junk and so is the next one. Stop making motion sensor gadgets. The Wii is gone and no one cares about these dumb gimmicks anymore.
mitford  +   408d ago
Insanity is a good workout and the kinect actually gives you feed back i think it looks very good
