How VR Fitness Saves Lives

Have you ever had trouble canceling your physical gym membership? How much did it cost you and how many times did you use it before turning off the financial siphon?

Please think about math for a moment.

Now, what if you could pay $350 upfront for a year of the world’s most accessible gyms? You can withdraw at any time and keep or sell any of the equipment you sent. Would such a suggestion solve a problem for you or someone you know? I bet you’re wondering if the workouts, high-end music, or coaching programs are an extra charge here, because they’re not.

So what exactly? Is catch here?

Here on the mock sales pitch I pull the sheet from the TV that has been sitting next to me on the stage the whole time. As I continue with my program, a video starts of a man repeatedly talking about smoking meat.

If it sounds like a deal that’s too good to be true, well, yes, there’s a problem…

If this investment in your future changes your life for the better, you have to admit that the man in this video, Mark Zuckerberg, was right all along about the ultimate potential of VR.

Why does a dead technology save lives?

According to regular reports from Business Insider and Forbes, VR is a dead technology.

But just a few days ago, Leanne Pedante was told that she and the other trainers she works with on Supernatural have saved people’s lives using VR. As head of fitness at new fitness service Meta, he says he’s received dozens of examples of people expressing the same general sentiment.

VR saved them.

Supernatural members tell trainers that Meta Fitness saved their lives because of how this virtual reality home gym works. What makes VR fitness special is that it comes without mirrors or gaze, Pedante explains.

“There are a few exercises in particular that I’m a few years old now that I get messages from people every week saying, ‘There were a few things you said at the right moment and it just released something.’ And I’m 100 years old. Pedante “That’s one of the reasons why I believe even more that it’s still going to be a lot of fun because I can see the number of times during a workout,” Percent told UploadVR. It is true that I have had such a feeling in a practice. I’m beyond that in supernatural practice, and I think part of the reason is that you feel safe in the present moment. You’re very attuned to what you’re feeling physically, how you’re feeling emotionally, and you feel safe because you have the voice of a mentor that you hopefully feel a connection with, that acknowledges your humanity, and I think I think it’s a really important safe place for people.”

If the hardest step in any fitness journey is the first step out the front door, VR headsets make it even easier. A VR headset takes up less space for fitness than a stationary bike or treadmill, and at least with the stationary bike, there are other services available like VZFit if you want to train in VR in different ways without leaving your home. .

Apple has yet to reveal the extent of its fitness offerings for the upcoming Apple Vision Pro, but the Fitness+ service is a good fit for the $3,500 system, and there are suggestions that face and eye tracking data can be used for a range of health-related purposes. . With the Apple Card and Pay Later, Apple may be ready to help you pay off significant debt and make that investment in yourself. This journey begins in 2024 for Apple and its customers.

Currently, meta-owned Supernatural lists Quest 2, which we only advised people not to purchase with Affirm for a year of this fitness service at $32 per month for 12 months.

The all-new Meta Quest 3 with 512GB of storage is an impressive proposition for the home gym. This lens features the impressive Pancake Lens technology that Meta has done a lot of research on, and the next generation XR2 Gen 2 processor with massive storage space can take you to amazing places in VR in the next few years. That’s $700, or roughly $760 after paying roughly $60 a month in interest through Affirm, for the headset and the year with Supernatural. If you want to know when this offer is available on, you must click on “Notify me when available”.

If you also invest in a charging dock, the Quest 3 will be ready as soon as you get to the gym.

We last spoke to Leanne Pedante in July 2021. This was just a few months before Meta announced plans to acquire the service in October of that year. Pedante had not been seen in the wild by Supernatural members and at the time, I mentioned it to 13,000 people in the official Supernatural Facebook group. Currently, there are nearly 90,000 people in that group. And seen in nature? Pedante has been in the public eye for her role as a virtual reality fitness instructor exactly once in the more than two years since we last spoke.

So, while Pedante is not yet a fitness celebrity in the physical world, he knows he’s making an impact and is starting to see supernatural goods on others. Pedante now works for Meta, which means that, yes, he has a vested interest in the success of virtual reality fitness, and we spoke to him recently.

“It was a shock because I think in a lot of ways, in my mind, I, as a person outside of the product, still feel like I’m kind of struggling, like a small-town woman trying to figure it out. , Pedante said, and just the idea that this thing that I’m involved in seems like a jump in the scale.

Below is a chart from showing the 2021 revenue estimates in millions of the 10 largest health clubs in the United States. Where might Supernatural fit on this chart in the coming years?

Keep in mind that the people who seem to have tried spending dollars at these physical gyms at any given time in the last decade may not be the first to put their dollars into virtual reality fitness shows like Supernatural in the next decade.

So here’s Pedante talking about two more years of virtual reality fitness coaching, the effects it’s had on him and the members he connects with via VR, and more generally the potential ahead for a new generation of VR fitness programs. The door reflects the house.

“I think it’s going to be very well received. I’m really grateful that I was able to be a part of Supernatural and a part of VR content when I did, because what I’ve seen is so different than what I expected to see. And I think that’s something Which proves to me that it’s going to be as big as I think it will be. I’m not an actor… being an actor, being in front of a camera was never part of my life plan and it’s the only way I can do it. And to have this role is that I am becoming present. And the only way I can feel good about that is the more I show up as my true self, the more it seems to resonate with people. And the coaches and I talk about it all the time…the early practices when we didn’t know who our members were going to be, I think…we were a little behind because we didn’t have a relationship with our community. You build trust over time. Over the years, we’ve built a lot of trust that, like human fallibility, our messy side as coaches is part of the reason people can find solace and companionship in us, because we reflect everything and not just A piece of someone.”
