By now, you’re probably aware that there are a couple of VR fitness options out there. But, how should you decide which one to get?
Well, there are a couple of things you should pay attention to.
First and foremost, check your fitness goals and then check whether a VR fitness app can get you there.
Keep in mind that most VR fitness platforms out there are games first, and fitness was just an afterthought. That’s not the case with HOLOFIT.
HOLOFIT was developed with fitness in mind to enable our users to reach their goals in a fun, and easy way. Let us take you through it.
Immersive content that distracts
Talking about the benefits VR Fitness provides, minimizing pain during physical exercise is a major one.
University of Kent study proved that exercising in VR lessens the perceived pain intensity by an incredible 10%. Moreover, University of Georgia researchers have found that high-intensity cycling is 12 – 13% less painful when combined with virtual reality.
Why? Because you’re completely immersed in VR instead of counting the reps you have left.
Our extensive portfolio of immersive content is something we’re especially proud of. It’s all original and we’re constantly working on developing and releasing new HOLOWorlds.
Currently, there are more than 45 workout tracks in 11 HOLOWORLDS.
You can workout anywhere from Antarctica, Saturn to Cyberpunk or Babylon and completely transform your workout experience.
These 45 workout tracks adapt to any of the 3 sports – rowing, cycling or running, so no matter the machine you have, you’ll be able to work out in these environments.
You can see the 2019 environment lineup in the following video:
Workout modes that motivate
To take maximum advantage out of the competitive human nature, we’ve developed 5 different workout modes to stimulate and motivate users to always come back and go further.
You can choose from Explore, Time attack, Cardio goals, Race Mode and Multiplayer.
- In Explore mode, you get to experience the environments while trying to collect all the trophies. You can later check which you’ve collected in the HOLOFIT app on your phone.
- In Time Attack, you get to beat your or others’ distance passed over a certain time after the initial session has been recorded.
- Cardio Goals are a guided type of training for either cardio, fat burn or interval training – all customizable to an appropriate level of difficulty.
- Race mode lets you improve your performance by racing AI competitors designed to challenge you just enough.
- Mehrspieler allows small group training and competitions.
Additionally, HOLOFIT comes with your own AI personal coach. They’ll greet you at the beginning of your HOLOFIT session when you can decide whether you want their guidance or not.
Combine the 5 workout modes with 45 workout tracks and you get more than 200 workout options – always keeping your workout fresh.
