UPDATE: Microsoft has now officially announced Xbox Fitness with a debut trailer. The app will launch for Xbox One later this year and will offer interactive versions of the world’s most popular fitness videos. Xbox Fitness will be free to access for all Xbox Live Gold subscribers until December 2014–after which you will presumably have to pay extra to access it.

ORIGINAL: Xbox One will feature a subscription-based fitness app known as Xbox Fitness, according to now removed pages on the official Xbox One website.

The page temporarily appeared on the website before being taken down, however a NeoGAF user managed to capture the details before it was removed. According to the app’s description, Xbox Fitness will allow players to train with Jillian Michaels, Tony Horton, and other star trainers. The description reads:

“Introducing the future of fitness. Experience the world’s best workouts with instant, personalized feedback, right in your home on Xbox Fitness. Train with Jillian Michaels, Tracy Anderson, P90X, Insanity and more. Optimize every workout with immediate feedback on your form, power and heart rate with the all new Kinect, featuring Muscle Mapping, Power Gauge, and Pulse. Plus, feed your motivation with social challenges. Unlimited access is yours with an Xbox Live Gold membership through November 2014. Only on Xbox One.”

The page also stated that after November 2014 “unlimited access requires a paid Xbox Fitness Pass subscription and an Xbox Live Gold membership,” indicating that an additional subscription will be required to continue using the app. It appears that the app will be free for Xbox Live Gold subscribers for one year after the console launches.

Microsoft is yet to officially announce this app and some of these details may change when it does.
