In a world where finding the time to workout is getting harder and harder, more and more workout programs are pulling out all the stops in order to get people to actually get some fitness in their lives.
Tech, gadgets and fitness have been hopping into bed together for quite a while. And while some devices are more an ode to tech and fitness like the Air Force One Sneaker Speakers which are actually just speakers that look like sneakers, there are also real time attempts to make sure that gadget heads are actually interested in fitness. Adidas has long been one of those in the forefront of combining fitness and technology. First there was the Adidas Facebook and Twitter Superstars program, and then more proactively the miCoach program.
This completely free workout program has long been a part of the Android and now the company has announced that they are going to branch out even more into the video game sector. Adidas MiCoach will soon be moving from mobile devices to include the Microsoft 360 Kinect and the Playstation Move.
This newest version of the MiCoach program is slated for release in early 2012 and because one of the key components of the program is a coach actually speaking to you as you perform your workout, this newest version of the program is slated to be introducing some big name fitness voice talent. Dwight Howard and Ana Ivanovi? will join several other of the world’s best known athletes to help users along their fitness paths.
Adidas has teamed up with video game producer THQ to make sure that this particular version of the popular workout software will be able to retain the attention of gamers who want to see what the program is all about. If equipped with the heart monitor that is specially designed to go with the program, users will be able to get real time feedback on how they are doing. Of course users can also see how they are doing by visiting the miCoach website where they can also change their workout plans to better suit their particular areas of need.
