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!
