The future of fitness is Virtual!
It was a lot of fun. And science says that when you’re having fun, you don’t notice that you’re exercising. There’s just too much going on to pay much attention.John Koetsier writes “VR fitness is exercise, without the effort” for Forbes.
Fitness has long been the subject of gamification, turning everyday exercise into something fun and mentally stimulating. When we are stimulated we are able to perform strenuous or repetitive tasks with little fatigue, traditionally this would be the role of the fitness instructor at the front of the class shouting to “keep going”. With virtual fitness you can up the game, literally! Tailoring your exercise to whatever keeps you motiviated and better yet; distracted, whether it’s running from a horde of zombies, throwing down in the ring with boxing legends or physically hitting the notes of your favourite song – you can finally enjoy every minute of your workout!
Mindfulness, meditation and rehabilition
Virtual Reality is paving the way for more accessible mindfulness, deeper meditation and psychological rehabilitation.
VR is used to aid in meditation, allowing you to be transported to calming scenes to ease in to deeper and more relaxed states. We’re very aware that not everybody finds it helpful to “picture a forest” we all have different personalities and activities that we find relaxing.
Whilst Virtual Reality is already established as an exciting home entertainment option, it’s now beginning to be valued for it’s ability to help profoundly wtih mental health.
Current research shows that immersion therapy can be achieved very succesfully in a virtual world allowing for gradual and controlled immersion within a safe environment. There are many examples of it being used for anything from tackling claustrophobia by placing people safely in smaller virtual spaces, to aiding those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Tours for all!
VIP tours, traditionally reserved for weekend city breaks of the rich are now accessible to everyone. Whether they’re cultural, historical or adrenalin filled – no more following the local tour guide down damp city streets, straining to hear what they’re saying.
We’re a nosey bunch so whether it’s an after hours tour of the Natural History Museum, backstage goings on at a Broadway theatre, a virtual hike of Yellowstone or ghost hunting at a haunted house – there’ll be a tour you’ll love.
