Go On a Fitness Adventure with Jillian Michaels
Posted by James Newton
More Kinect adventures
Jillian Michaels is really working herself into a video game-related frenzy these days: she's already appeared on The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout and later this year her buns of steel will be challenging you to push yourself to your limits (we assume) in Jillian Michaels' Fitness Adventure.
Rather than put you in a smelly gym, the game puts you through your paces in a new jungle temple setting, pitting you against story-based challenges in order to progress. There's also a set of Parkour-style routines that sound interesting, and even the possibility of recognition from Jillian Michaels herself if you really perform well.
We assume this is the same game as UK publisher 505 Games' recently-announced Jillian Michaels' Fitness Experience, as even Miss Michaels surely appreciates two games would be spreading herself a little too thin.
Jillian Michaels' Fitness Adventure is due for release in November.
