Xbox One Fitness

The primary reason I chose the Xbox One over the PS4 was because the Fitness program that was "allegedly" complimentary with the XBone purchase and Gold Membership. To my disappointment, the Fitness App only provides limited quantities of the fitness videos and then you are directed to actually purchase the DVDs. One of the selling points of the Xbox One was the Fitness Program and having your own "virtual" personal trainer. I have read a lot of forums complaining and screaming "deception" on part of Microsoft. I am an overall Microsoft product supporter, but truly, I am overly dissatisfied that you're only provided with 2 videos of P90x and 1 video of Insanity. May you please explain the situation and elaborate more on the contents of the Fitness App. Will we receive the program in full? Will we have to pay a fee? Where are the rest of the videos? Why are we getting limited quantities? Thank you.

beachbody workouts range from $90 to almost $200. they arent going to give that away. fitness is expensive. its why so many people dont work out.

-

ive done p90x quite a bit. i can guess the two work outs they provide are kenpo x and plyo x. all of the rest of the work outs just wouldnt work with kinect. you are doing pull ups, push ups, or using weights. most of these things kinect just cant give you feedback on.

-

from what ive heard, there are non beach body work outs as well. but everything is pretty much cardio/leg work outs. i think in time they may expand things, but i doubt you will ever see all of p90x up there, it just wouldnt work. they have a year before it moves behind a paywall.

Agree with the OP. I was looking forward to the P90x and am definitely disappointed. I expected more P90x workouts and also better integration with the kinect.. which i guess would be tough to do but I expected more.

At this point I'd settle for even movement/muscle the tracking that the kinect can do as a snappable app that I can run myself. Just being able to track your form would be good.

It was unlikely that you were going to get the full insanity and p90x programmes. Overall you have about 20 workouts to choose from, I am currently reviewing them as quick as physically possible. But the idea is to provide a taster to make you buy them i think, you also have to remember they are only free for 1 year.

Overall they give enough variety to get some results, but as with all training the nutrition is just as important which is why the shakeology adverts everywhere annoys me (eat real food!)

This is sad news. False advertising?

Hopefully EA releases another game, they are real heart budgets, not for the faint of heart lol.

Obviously no one read the actual post announcing it cause they never stated that all workouts were available they specifically stated some of the workouts would be available and I have done both p90x and insanity some of those workouts would have never worked with the kinect.  Now I have been loving the Mossa program on xbox fitness

That does seem a bit deceptive. The fitness apps is one of the few things that I thought might be interesting about the Xbox One, so I guess I'm glad I'm not missing out on anything at least.

I'm probably taking this a little off topic but.....

In regards to your "eat real food" comment that may not always be a good option for some people. I've been lifting weights for nearly 30 yrs and it would be nearly impossible for me to meet my nutritional needs by eating real food especially getting a high quality protein source.

I'm not sure if "shakeology" is your term or if it's a meal replacement drink offered by one of the programs but shakes are excellent way to make sure you're getting what you need. Many people have busy schedules and fixing 5 to 6 meals a day of real food just isn't an option.

i really dont know how you guys are saying it was deceptive and false advertising. they never once said it would have complete workouts. in fact im pretty sure it was advertised as only partial. if after a year they dont rotate in new work outs or add new ones then yeah that would be disapointing, but everything i read about xbox fitness sounds like they are delivering exactly what was promised. im hoping i have time to set my xbox up this weekend and the first thing i will be doing is some plyo x so ill give a proper review then, instead of teh hearsay i have now.

-

as for nutrition, for most people you do have time to eat. you only need 5 to 6 meals if you are a trying to put on or maintain serious muscle mass or if you are a professional athlete working out all day. but for most people who are going to work out 30 minutes to 45 minutes 3 to 5 times a week and arent lookign to bulk up a standard 3 meals per day is fine.

-

that being said i dont think there is anything wrong with shakes either. though i am not a fan of the beachbody ones, they have tend to use more refined sugars then i like. if im goign to eat some refined sugars i am going to want something a lot tastier. im assuming randver has shakes like i do, where its primarily real food like milk, yogurt, veggies, fruit, etc. and then its supplemented with protein. to me that is real food. but water+whatever powder beachbody is pushing is not.

The 5 to 6 smaller meals a day is just as important to the couch potato trying to get into shape if not more so. The difference it makes in keeping your blood sugar levels in check and the impact on your metabolism is huge, if your trying to lose weight the difference will be noticeable in your progress.

5 to 6 small meals is not important. it does have advantages for some people, but they are all psycological. it means you are never really hungry so you dont sit down and over eat. it means you have energy all day so you dont snack.

most people are just looking to burn fat. for them it really doesnt matter when you eat, just that you eat right and not too much. for the people looking to build muscle mass there are lots of different schools shown to be effective. to me i think the human body is an amazing adapter so as long as you are consistent with a routine you will be fine. just make sure it has the following: hard work, good nutrition, lots of sleep.
