Exercise at your Gym with the VirZoom VR Bike

Mark Metry, Founder of VU Dream
“Play VR. Get Fit.” That’s what VirZOOM (pronounced ver-ZOOM!) is about. Virtual reality games made for active motion control where your pedaling and leaning propel you through race tracks, battlegrounds, soaring skies, and pictorial countrysides in the forms of an F1 driver, a tank commander, a Pegasus, a cyclist, and more.
 
Other online players automatically drop into the games, providing competitive and cooperative matches up to 8 players. Make friends and invite them to head-to-head or ghost challenges over a period of time, winner take all! Or choose your own workout and goals, collecting coins along the way to upgrade your avatars.

Combining the interactive and engaging VR experience with the performance and durability of our Life Fitness products is an example of two innovative technologies coming together. Exercisers forget that they are working out because they are so in tune with what’s going on in the game, it’s been pretty fun to see. We want to continue finding new ways to keep people engaged and moving, and partnering with VirZOOM is a testament to that.”
– Amad Amin, Life Fitness product director of digital experience.
