10 Fitness Gadgets We’re Dying to Try from CES 2018
There seems to be a race to see who can figure out how to use VR for fitness in a way that doesn’t look stupid, isn’t dangerous and actually helps you break a sweat. Blackbox is looking to be first with the launch of its virtual-reality gyms. Pull on the headset to play a game that’s tied to an electronically-controlled cable system (think of it like a Bowflex machine) designed to mimic the weight of whatever it is you’re pushing, pulling or lifting in the game. For someone who can’t seem to find the motivation to join a gym, this experience might just fit the bill. Membership will cost about $149 a month for three workouts a week, and will start rolling out in San Francisco come August, Ryan DeLuca, CEO of Black Box, tells us. We’re curious to see what areas of the country Black Box chooses to target next.
