The YMCA in Minneapolis has implemented a virtual reality fitness program to encourage both seasoned and novice gym-goers to stay in shape.
Gyms are typically packed with technology, like premium speakers and televisions that purposefully distract and motivate members to achieve specific fitness goals, however, this new virtual reality system aims to promote enjoyment among those working out, by making an individual feel as though they are "flying and diving." This creative alternative to a traditional workout adds a more unique and creative element to an otherwise tedious experience, encouraging individuals to engage more positively with high-intensity cardio workouts.
This creative experience serves as an example of the relationship that can exist between virtual reality and otherwise ordinary occurrences, like going to the gym.
