The future of home fitness: VR?

Are summer bodies built in spring quarantines? We sure hope so. 💪

The only problem is, after a few weeks of the stay at home fitness regime, the Zoom workouts are starting to lose their shine. Luckily for us, there’s a new game in town.

Supernatural just launched on Oculus Quest and was made by kinesiologists and game designers to make sure maxing out your workout feels more like an adventure than a chore. It’s like a HIIT class hidden inside a level of your favorite game, with an expansive music catalogue. It pairs with your smartphone and heart rate monitor to become like a coach in your pocket.

Supernatural was created by Chris Milk, the co-founder and CEO of Within. Milk started his career directing music videos for artists. As time went on, he became interested in VR and started blending together his past experiences in media and music. With Supernatural, the aim was to make working out feel more like an escape from the ordinary.

“Virtual reality allows us to make home exercise fundamentally fun,” says Milk.

The PH community seems on board for it, too.

“I'm not a gamer so I've had no reason to purchase VR devices, even though I find it interesting from a tech POV. But this is clearly a use case I can get into for VR.” - Lonny

Although VR workouts are on the rise, a lot of traditional VR games also make you work up a sweat. 😅

You can use YUR to track your VR movement data on any device, on any game you’re playing. YUR will give you calorie estimates, let you track fitness goals and see how far you’ve come with historical tracking.
Fun Friday activity: you can make a 3D face filter out of a single photo. Just snap a photo or import one, erase the background, and you've got a filter. It works on pet photos too. 😻
