There's no such thing as a fitness game with a story, even though we once asked Why Not Create a Fitness RPG? 505 Games is bringing a bit of narrative to its upcoming exercise routine though, with Jillian Michaels' Fitness Adventure on the way by year's end.

Dubbed "Jillian Michaels' Kinect for Xbox 360 debut", despite the hard-bodied one featuring in The Biggest Loser: Ultimate Workout, the new game will blend fitness with story, hopefully resulting in a very different kind of fitness experience. We expect to get to grips with Miss Michaels in November.

So a Tomb Raider like work out game?? Honestly... I think that's pretty awesome! I would actually be interested in seeing a game like this! Running in place makes the character run for their life through a trap filled tomb? or laying on your back and pushing traps off your body or swimming through rivers? There's SO much potential with that idea! Good work!
