Nike and Microsoft introduced Nike+ Kinect Training last week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo. This is a custom training program to help athletes of all levels achieve their fitness goals while training at home. The same trainers from Nike who work with elite athletes of the company are featured in the new program.

"Nike+ Kinect Training gives everyone access to the same training that we give our professional athletes. It merges our understanding of the greatest athletes in the world with the amazing sensor technology of Kinect for Xbox 360," said Stefan Olander, vice president of Digital Sport at Nike.

Nike+ Kinect Training will make working out at home fun and inspiring, and with its seamless connection to two huge global communities in Xbox LIVE and Nike+, you'll always find more motivation in someone to train with or challenge."
Nike’s newest digital product joins a lineup that includes Nike+ and the Nike+FuelBand. The “Kinect” program can be customized for athletes at all levels, adapting to a users’ level of physicality. The Nike+ Kinect Training will be available exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360 and will roll out sometime during the 2012 holiday season.

The Xbox is Microsoft's premier entertainment service for television, phone, PC and tablet. For more information on the digital fitness products, visit
