Exercise classes are a fun way to work out in a group rather than purely going full bore in the gym. However, with the pandemic and ensuing lockdown, they’ve become a rarity. Helping bring that joint cardio workout feeling into the home, FitXR will be launching dance workouts for its Oculus Quest app.
Adding more variety to its standard boxing workouts, FitXR’s new dance routines are designed for full-body aerobic exercise. You mirror a virtual trainer’s moves as accurately and as energetically as possible, with a high score system encouraging that effort.
The update will feature 60 minutes of dance workouts including four beginner classes and four intermediate classes across three dance styles. Cardio dance focuses on rhythm and the coordination, cardio conditioning concentrates on endurance while body conditioning looks at bodyweight strength to work your entire body.
“The addition of dance to the FitXR studio represents our continual ambition to provide users with a virtual place they can go to achieve their fitness goals but importantly to have fun whilst doing it – and all without leaving the house. We know that when it comes to exercise, people will only stick with something if they enjoy it, and that’s exactly what we’ve created with our latest offering,” said Sameer Baroova, Co-founder of FitXR in a statement.
“Dancing is a great way of letting your hair down and having fun whilst exercising at the same time, and as dancing has been somewhat off the menu in 2020, we felt there was no better time to make dance the latest edition to the FitXR service,” Baroova adds.
FitXR’s new dance-inspired workouts will be available for Oculus Quest and Quest 2 from 5th November 2020 as a free update.
