As a self-proclaimed CrossFit addict, I’m no stranger to group fitness. Sure, I love the ‘me’ time that I get when I hit the trails or road solo, but there really isn’t anything like the energy in group fitness classes.
I’m sure many of you are familiar with Les Mills, the mastermind behind body pump and other popular group fitness classes. Les Mills reached out to me to chat with all of you about their brand new group fitness class coming in 2015, and it sounds SUPER exciting.
Imagine divergent meets body pump meets adventure — all within the 4 walls of your own gym.
Les Mills new project, ‘Immersion Fitness’ is taking normal fitness classes and turning them into a full-on movie experience — complete with cinema-quality graphics and audio. The instructors will coordinate the movements/workouts to match the graphics on the screen, so participants can actually feel like they are ‘in’ an actual movie.
This virtual-simulator class would include things like include biking up a glacial mountain for a spin class, or dancing in a festival in the middle of a summer’s night for a dance class.
Regardless of what you choose to do when you sweat, you will be immersed in a totally different world. Kind of reminds me of real-life Divergent, no?
I can’t wait to give this a try — I think that I would love to do something with running in a wooded forest.
What workout/environment would you pick?
The next level of fitness is here. IMMERSIVE FITNESS™ surrounds participants with cinema quality video content projected onto screens of a purpose-built studio. Exercise moves synchronize perfectly with music and graphics, creating a truly immersive fitness experience. Learn more!
