Microsoft has teamed up with Nike to launch Nike+Kinect training in India. Microsoft’s latest release for Kinect, “Nike + Kinect Training” helps you train using the training secrets of some of the worlds leading athletes.
This revolutionary fitness game takes exercise routines to the next level and lets users work out with top Nike athletes such as tennis ace Rafael Nadal, basket player LeBron James and soccer Olympic gold medalist Hope Solo, from the comfort of home. Fitness assessments occur every four weeks to keep the workouts on target. Users can also send friends encouragement via Facebook and through an accompanying “Nike+ Kinect Training” mobile app.
The game has an amazing new feature that is designed to act like the virtual eyes of a real life trainer. It kicks off with an initial full-body assessment that takes about 15 minutes and is based on the live input of Nike trainers Marie Purvis and Alex Molden. This evaluation is so detailed, that it can even assesses if the player using the programme has a current injury. Once the assessment is done, players get to create a personalized workout that will work for them, regardless of their fitness level.
