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. Let’s get right into it.
Fitness should be the basis of VR Fitness. It’s perfectly logical, right?
It should be, but the fact is the majority of VR Fitness options out there have been developed as games first, and then added in the fitness segment.
While that may work, we have to emphasize that implementing fitness as basis, at the design stage of the project is crucial for its effectiveness. That’s precisely what we’ve done.
Fitness first, gamification second.
HOLOFIT was developed with fitness in mind to enable our users to take full advantage of the plethora of scientifically proven benefits VR Fitness has to offer.
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 36 workout tracks in 9 HOLOWORLDS.
You can workout anywhere from Antarctica, Saturn to Cyberpunk or Babylon and completely transform your workout experience.
These 36 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 workout in these environments.
Right now, we are developing realistic sports events environments which are soon to be released!
You can see all currently available environments in the video below:
Workout modes that motivate
To take maximum advantage out of the competitive human nature, we’ve developed 4 different workout modes to stimulate and motivate users to always come back and go further.
You can choose from Explore, Time attack, Cardio goals 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.
Multiplayer 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 4 workout modes with 36 workout tracks and you get more than 100 workout options – always keeping your workout fresh.
