Game consoles aren’t just for couch potatoes. Your yoga practice can take on a new dimension right from the comfort and privacy of your own home with a next-generation gaming console. Expensive gym and studio memberships (along with the commute there and back) are no longer necessary with an Xbox One. Fitness experts like Jillian Michaels have yoga workouts for Xbox, so yogis can have fun and improve their practice at home.
Add Fun With Apps and Workouts
With new upgrades and accessories, your Xbox becomes more than a mere game console. The Kinect enables users to interact with games and workouts without controllers or remotes. Fitness instructors can use Xbox fitness games and workouts to lead a class or provide personal training with a wide variety of activities to keep even the most veteran fitness fanatics interested and challenged. Kinect comes standard with the new Xbox One.
Add Famous Instructors
Everybody knows famous fitness expert Jillian Michaels. She has two yoga workouts for Xbox, “Yoga Inferno Workout 1″ and “Yoga Inferno Workout 2,” plus she has a 10-Minute Solutions program entitled “5 Day Get Fit Mix: Power Yoga.”
Michaels is serious about fitness, and her yoga programs for Xbox are not easy. She urges users to push themselves, change their routines, use proper form to get results and prevent injuries, take time to recover, and avoid dehydration. Michaels’ yoga workouts will give a level of intensity to your practice, as they include high-intensity interval training and weight training to accelerate conditioning and weight loss, if that’s what you’re interested in.
Add Extras With Xbox Live Gold
For less than the cost of an annual gym membership, fitness aficionados can get a three- or 12-month subscription to Xbox Live Gold with almost unlimited games, deals, TV, movies, music, video, apps and a whole fitness library. Users get all the extras with Xbox Live Gold, like immediate feedback on form, power, and heart rate, social challenges, and previews of the newest fitness and entertainment content. Personal trainers using Xbox in their services can customize training with entertainment for their clients, and individual users can add spice and variety to their workouts.
Add Top Fitness Games
Add fun fitness games in between yoga workouts for extra conditioning. Xbox 360 fitness games are Amazon best-sellers because of the versatility of Kinect. “Your Shape: Fitness Evolved” analyzes users’ body shapes and tracks fitness progress for martial arts, yoga, weight loss and tai chi. “Dance Central” is for those who love to dance and want to use it to burn calories and get in shape. “The Biggest Loser Ultimate Workout” lets you work on your fitness just like they do on the popular show. “EA Sports Active 2″ lets users workout with more than 70 exercises and a professional workout regimen, competitive play and advanced tracking features.
You already know that yoga is a great way to gain flexibility, strength and peace of mind. The technology behind Xbox and Kinect can take your practice to a new level, all from the comfort of home.
