The ever-evolving world we live in continues to move towards increased connectivity. So much so, some say we are on the precipice of a 40–50-year technological seismic shift with recent advances and forecasting in Virtual Reality Fitness technology. This will ultimately change how we conduct our daily lives and that’s very exciting!
We’ve all had an analogous taste of this shift during the quarantine, via simple 2D video conferencing. As a matter of necessity, how we communicate with colleagues changed overnight and it seems to be here to stay. Digital connectivity became increasingly popular for an array of everyday activities over the quarantine.
Fitness was, and is, no exception. If anything, it yearns for more connectivity.
Historically, at home fitness equipment was limited to the most common and monotonous pieces treadmills, bikes, and rowing machines. However, these pieces of equipment worked in isolation. The evolution of smartphones allowed basic wearable devices to hit the market and gave us the ability to count steps and calories through Bluetooth technology.
Over the years devices became more sophisticated, but in regards to wearable technology the watch was still the preferred choice. Think Apple Watch.
When gyms closed, fitness fanatics were astray. They started building small in-home gyms to compensate for the lack of accessibility. Wearable devices also increased in popularity exponentially, as well as other unique home gym equipment and their technology. Necessity being the mother of invention and all.
Future of Home Fitness
Out of necessity, several companies began to pivot, and release connected devices such as large touch screen mirrors with trainers guiding you through your exercises. There were also releases and iterations from the more traditional pieces of equipment already mentioned treadmills, bikes, and rowing machines all with large touch screens connected via Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to your smartphone.
Although the Home Connectable fitness industry has moved forward leaps and bounds and encourages more people to exercise, one slight problem remains. There’s no true connectivity. It’s just not there. You can see them on a screen, but the experience still feels like you’re working out in isolation.
Virtual Reality Fitness
At UNIX we value communities. We understand the importance of unity in making significant change and want you to be a part of something greater. We are building an inspired community through an immersive platform, allowing us to connect in ways we only thought were possible in sci-fi movies.
There’s no better way to do this than through fitness. VR/AR offers the perfect platform to connect globally, no matter where you live or how far you are from our state-of-the-art studios. It’s irrelevant, yet very relevant. VR/AR will create a global fitness community where everyone and anyone can partake. We will use this opportunity to push each other to be the best version of ourselves mind, body, and soul. Wherever we may reside.
Although we’d be completely connected, the training, programs and workouts are all still done in the privacy and convenience of your own home. Imagine that type of optimization in your fitness experience. Being able to connect to an inspired community. Finish. Pull off your headset. And be home. It’s the future. It’s more time for you to spend with your family. It’s more time to dedicate to your work. It’s more time to take up that hobby you’ve always wanted to conquer, without compromising your health and wellness. The precious gift of time, as a result of the ever evolving Virtual and Augmented Reality technology.
What is connectedness?
Connectedness is defined as being or feeling socially, emotionally, spiritually, or professionally linked with others or with another, or the robustness of such relationships. That’s the opportunity VR/AR provides for fitness. It enables us to connect with others, take part in classes, and inspire each other to push through our barriers. We all have them. At the same time, it allows us to try new exercises in privacy without feeling judged or criticized. And guess what else it does, it also allows us to have fun together!
At UNIX we are at the forefront of Virtual and Augmented Reality fitness technology. We combine the best of strength and cardiovascular training within a highly interactive virtual reality setting. Settings that will inspire you to want to do more. We have contempt for the status quo and will push the boundaries to ensure you are living your best life. Connected.
