Dwight Howard takes us on the set of the recently announced Adidas miCoach for consoles.
Adidas miCoach is the highly regarded mobile coaching app/training program that is designed to turn your phone into a personal coach. miCoach uses GPS and real-time voice coaching in your ear to pace you through easy to understand workout zones as you run. Choose a training plan tuned for your sport to build speed and endurance.
According to a recent interview with ESPN.go.com, whose Jon Robinson talked with game producer David Sapienza, the game is being designed to ” help athletes perform better, whether that’s being faster or stronger.”“What we’re building is the strength and flexibility aspect of the program. Athletes have already developed these specific programs, and now we’re bringing these exercises to the Kinect and to the Move. What really helps differentiate this product is that it’s all done in live action. We’re working with real-world live athletes, and we’re filming them to be in the game. They are not avatars. Then what we do is we take your image from the Kinect or from the Move, and we cut out your shape and we place you in the game right next to this live action star.” –David Sapienza to Jon Robinson .
This sneak peek, which was release by THQ tonight, indicated an early 2012 release. While the gaming industry gathers in Los Angeles for E3 we at GamerFitNation hope that this is not only a preview of the awesome new title from THQ, but perhaps a wave of similar endeavors by the game industry. This is a focus that we hope to discover at the expo.
While miCoach for consoles is not available yet you can head on over to the Official Site to download the app to your mobile device and get started today. We look forward to seeing the amazing new depths that THQ will take this program.
Don’t Just Be Fit, Be Gamer Fit
