miCoach is an athletic training system featuring 18 athletes across six different sports. There are upwards of 400 different exercises available, designed to optimise fitness levels for specific sporting pursuits.

Guest fitness coaches include Kaka, Dwight Howard, Manuel Neuer, Jessica Ennis, Jose Mourinho and Ana Ivanovic. Training regimes have been designed for sports such as running, tennis, football, American football and basketball.

The game, which is being developed by UK studio Chromativity, will take advantage of Kinect for the Xbox 360 and Move for the PlayStation 3. It serves as an extension to the miCoach website and various mobile apps.

Speaking about the advantages of the game, miCoach business director Simon Drabble said: "Training alongside your own heroes is a fun and engaging way to get better for your sport or simply help you reach your fitness goals."

It echoes a previous statement issued by Dwight Howard, who praised the authenticity of the game's training programmes.

"The stuff that you see during the game are things that I do during the off-season to get stronger, to become more explosive. All the exercises in the video game are actual workouts that I do," explained Howard.

miCoach will be available exclusively for Kinect on Xbox 360 and Move on PlayStation 3 this summer.
