Xbox Fitness Says Goodbye

By Kelly Packard, 6 months ago
The Day One Kinect-enabled title Xbox Fitness announced today it will be receiving the "Project Spark treatment" — that is, slowly closing down in multiple phases. Unlike Project Spark which will still be able to be played offline, the end result is the service will become completely unavailable to any users.

The first phase began today, which was the delisting of all Xbox Fitness DLC from the Marketplace. The full closure details are below.

  • Beginning today, June 27, 2016, Xbox Fitness content will no longer be available for purchase. For existing users of Xbox Fitness, the content you’ve purchased will be available to play for a year, through June 30, 2017.
  • On December 15, 2016, we will be removing our “Free with Gold” offer. Until then, Gold members will still be able to access and play the over 30+ workouts available for streaming as a part of this offer for free.
  • On July 1, 2017, Xbox Fitness (and all associated content) will no longer be available for download/play. This includes content you’ve purchased. At that time, Xbox Fitness will no longer be available for download from Xbox Marketplace and content will not be available for play from the Xbox Marketplace nor within the game. Xbox Fitness users will no longer be able access Xbox Fitness and the associated workouts/programs.
The Xbox Fitness team had one last closing statement for their users:

We know that many of you have used Xbox Fitness to begin your fitness journey, to supplement it, or as a way to redefine your own fitness story. We’re glad we could be a part of the journey. We’ve seen Xbox Fitness fans take what they’ve gained with Xbox Fitness and share it with their own communities to encourage others to find their fitness and their own path to a healthier life. We thank you for sharing your story and your life with us. It’s been a fantastic, fun, and fit journey to share with you all.
Players with any questions are advised to visit the Xbox Fitness forums or contact Xbox Support.
