Just in time for Christmas, two new VR workouts are coming to BOXVR
December can be a month of great indulgence, excessive consumption and an ever-so-expanding waistline. Not so at FitXR – the boutique developer behind BOXVR – who are fighting fit this Christmas!
On Thursday two new workouts will launch in-game. These have been especially designed to fight those seasonal excesses by Ianthe (below), one of the team of fitness instructors that work with the developers at FITXR to produce effective virtual workouts.
BOXVR is a rhythm based fitness game which brings high intensity boxing workouts into virtual reality. It’s the only VR boxing title which features regularly updated workouts that are designed by real life boxing instructors. Ianthe is part of a team of five instructors who were handpicked from the thriving London studio fitness scene.
The game launched on Steam in June, and has since established a dedicated and loyal following and consistently positive reviews.
The game’s key features include:
WORKOUT – Five leading fitness instructors from the world of studio fitness who produce regularly updated calorie busting boxing workouts.
TRAIN – Algorithmic boxing workouts generated on the fly to music uploaded by the player.
SURVIVE – A challenging endurance mode pits players against an endless runner!
Sameer Baroova, co-founder of FitXR commented; “Our aim at FitXR is to use VR to create an engaging, immersive and fun fitness experience for our users – but also one that is genuinely effective and calorie busting.” He continues; “This is why we work with a team of fitness instructors to create regular, new workouts – each one with a flavour that reflects that particular instructor”
Sam Cole, co-founder added “FitXR aims to become the go-to virtual reality workout solution for the home fitness market. We plan to create rhythm based workouts inspired not only by boxing, but also dance, martial arts and more, in order to become the definitive workout-at-home solution.”
They have also recently announced support for Windows Mixed Reality and will soon be supporting Chinese, Korean, Dutch, German, Japanese, Spanish, French, Russian in addition to the English language.
BOXVR is now available on Steam here. For a limited time only: December 21st 2017 – January 4th 2018, the game will be available at a discount of 25%
