Microsoft has announced that it is shutting down Xbox Fitness, its workout platform that debuted with the Xbox One in 2013. Though the shutdown will gradually take effect over the next year, users will no longer be able to purchase new Xbox Fitness content starting today, June 27.
As a service, Xbox Fitness has continually evolved since it launched on Xbox One, with new content and ongoing updates. Given the service relies on providing you with new and exciting content regularly, Microsoft has given much consideration to the reality updating the service regularly in order to sustain it. Therefore, the decision has been made to scale back our support for Xbox Fitness over the next year, and we want to provide our users with a timeline of the changes you will see. We'll also ensure information is posted regularly in the News page within Xbox Fitness.
If you have purchased content for Xbox Fitness, it will still be playable through June 30, 2017. Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be able to continue to access the "Free with Gold" streaming workouts through December 15, 2016. Xbox Fitness itself will fully shut down on July 1, 2017, and will no longer be accessible after that point.
