FitXR, the leading VR fitness company, is launching a whole new style of workout, expanding the virtual studio to include new total-body dance workouts that users can access from the comfort of their own home.
Launching on November 5th for the Oculus Quest, perfectly timed for the new Oculus Quest 2, the new dance-inspired workouts serve as complete aerobic exercise and offer something brand new for both existing FitXR fans and those new to VR fitness. They capture the energy of live fitness classes and provide the most fun and effective workout available.
This new addition to the FitXR studio showcases dance as a form of cardio workout, with classes designed by professional fitness instructors aiming to work the whole body and improve overall fitness levels. FitXR’s dance workouts are a fun alternative to a “go hard or go home” gym routine if you’re looking to mix things up but still get your endorphins hit. Even if you’ve never danced before, there’s a dance workout that is suited to you.
In the FitXR dance studio, a virtual trainer encourages you to mirror their moves as accurately and as energetically as possible in order to achieve a high score. The trainer also provides tips to help with form, in a class filled with other players (using ghost data), to capture the collaborative and social feel of a live dance class. Leader boards and feedback from the trainer create a competitive element to each workout, pushing users to work harder to increase their position on the board.
Available upon launch will be workouts in three different dance styles, with varying levels of difficulty to cater to all abilities. Cardio dance focuses more on rhythm and the coordination of learning new moves, while cardio conditioning sees a heavier focus on endurance and pushing your cardio to the limits. Body conditioning places the emphasis on bodyweight strength to work your entire body. Music continues to play an integral role to the new FitXR workouts, with each workout carefully choreographed to an eclectic range of tracks to create a fully immersive workout.
FitXR’s dance workouts help users improve their overall endurance, agility, coordination, memory and confidence. All classes are created using a combination of dance, aerobics and fitness moves to demonstrate a workout that is effective but remains super fun at its core.
Sameer Baroova, Co-founder of FitXR said:
“The addition of dance to the FitXR studio represents our continual ambition to provide users with a virtual place they can go to achieve their fitness goals but importantly to have fun whilst doing it – and all without leaving the house. We know that when it comes to exercise, people will only stick with something if they enjoy it, and that’s exactly what we’ve created with our latest offering.
Dancing is a great way of letting your hair down and having fun whilst exercising at the same time, and as dancing has been somewhat off the menu in 2020, we felt there was no better time to make dance the latest edition to the FitXR service.”
The dance classes will be FitXR’s first move into fitness workouts outside of boxing. FitXR, rebranded from BoxVR, launched earlier this year with boxing-inspired workouts and new features, including a feedback system which gives users the feeling of having their very own personal trainer within a live class and additional player data and scoreboards within classes.
The new dance workouts will come free with FitXR. There will be 60 minutes of dance workouts including four beginner classes and four intermediate classes now part of the FitXR offering
