Jillian Michaels is larger than life after her lengthy participation NBC's hit show, The Biggest Loser
. She went on to becoming a best-selling author, having her own supplement line, and now her own video game exclusively on the Xbox 360 Kinect called Jillian Michaels' Fitness Adventure
. Well, fitness is an adventure, didn't cha know?
The issue with most fitness games, so it seems, is that you clearly can tell you're exercising and there's really not else much to it. With Fitness Adventure
, Jillian Michaels is looking to make exercise a little more interesting by making her game "a mission-based, thrill-seeking journey."
To keep gamers interested in Fitness Adventure
, the game will pack a variety of exercise modes to avoid boredom and ensuing massacres:
• Fitness Adventure Mode – featuring Parkour-style action (a free-style mix of proactive and reactive running, jumping and climbing) set in an exciting jungle temple environment.
• Circuit Training – 10 exercise circuits hand-selected by Jillian herself available in three difficulty modes, giving you complete freedom to customize your session.
• Individual Fitness Training – offering exercises of varying difficulty allowing you to work out at your own pace.
Have some exercise equipment you want to use other than your bodyweight? Well, Jillian Michaels' Fitness Adventure
allows gamers to integrate additional exercise equipment into specific exercise programs. If you don't have anything extra, then you can just use that good ol' fashion thing you call a body.
Sometimes, exercising isn't all that fun unless there's a reward. The reward given to the best performing gamers on the Fitness Adventure
's leaderboard is an honorary mention on Jillian Michaels' facebook page. Jillian will personally view the game's leaderboards and give a shout out to the best of the best.
Lastly, Fitness Adventure
will have full statistical integration, where gamers will be able to view everything from calories burned to circuits completed to detailed breakdowns through days, weeks, months, and years. Jillian Michaels' Fitness Adventure
is set for a November 2011 release date.
