A Fully Immersive Virtual Reality Gym Experience

What Is Black Box VR?

Black Box VR Is The World's First Full-Fitness
Virtual Reality Gym Experience.

At Black Box VR, we are creating the world’s first virtual reality gym experience. You’ll step into a Black Box VR boutique gym and immerse yourself in a whole new way to get fit that will make you never want to visit an outdated gym again.

Go inside the black box and come out leaner, stronger, faster, and more fit than ever before.

Black Box VR is better than a traditional gym. It's so much more fun and EFFICIENT! It gives you a complete workout and there's no waiting around the gym for a free machine.

This was the coolest experience ever! I had so much fun working out and playing the game at the same time. I really broke out a sweat and felt the burn doing all the reps. I would definitely come back.

SO FUN!! As a gamer, this was my dream workout. Does it work? Yes it does. You come in and can have a free intro trial. The workout itself is a combo of strength row, squat, and chest press (you unlock more later) and it's good that they encourage you to do more reps by adding multipliers on the damage you deal! The game is a tower defense PvP game where you play a CPU! They also encourage you to take breaks by having a max number of reps you can do before you have to switch. I was skeptical at first but I don't like strength training and this made me do 332 reps.

Such a great place to get a workout in. Turned me into a morning person! I love getting up, grabbing a coffee and making my way over to BBVR. I’ve been consistently going since they’ve opened and I’ve canceled my other gym membership. It’s super worth it.

VR mixed with a workout has been a great motivator for me. I am about 20 sessions in and am already seeing results. It's nice to roll out of bed in the morning and be excited to go to the gym.

I signed up to go to Black Box Vr 15 days ago immediately canceled my other gym membership after just two days in the box. It is a full body, HIIT, 30 minute workout that turns into a game and makes working out fun! Best in Boise, hands down. I've literally caught the bug and have been in there religiously as the game play is tons of fun and the pump you get after the workout is the best, no where else I can get that feeling after 30 mins of working out.

I've been working out with Black Box since October of last year. It's been an amazing ride! What they have accomplished is incredible. As for the experience, nothing compares to it. You do six different full body exercises inside of a virtual reality game using a proprietary cable machine. All of this is in complete privacy so you don't have to worry about feeling judged or inadequate. As you improve the program levels you up and the intensity of the workout increases.

As a “conventional” lifter I struggle to find the motivation to do the proper amount of cardio, or even HITT. Black box was a great compromise, with the VR aspect the workout was enjoyable and left me wanting to go for longer. Definitely would recommend for anyone trying to switch things up!

Wouldn’t it be great if by playing a game you could level up yourself instead of just an on-screen character? It’s now possible. Your actual speed, strength, and endurance will help you win, making it more like a futuristic sport than a video game. You are rewarded immediately for your virtual reality gym fitness performance instead of in the distant future like with traditional fitness routines. That’s how habits are created.


The integrated cable pulley system is controlled by the Black Box virtual reality engine, giving you real muscle and strength-building resistance for your entire body. Instant force change capabilities give you full immersion.

Targeted intensity builders take you past your previous plateaus.

No Pain No Gain? Not Exactly.

Traditional fitness experiences are like torture. You focus on the pain of each rep or step. The clock ticks by so slowly you wonder if it’s actually working. With advanced hardware and software, Black Box virtual reality workouts are proven to create a canyon between your actual effort and your perceived effort. You are giving 10/10 of your abilities but it feels like 6/10. Time flows by so quickly your 30 minute full-body virtual reality fitness experience feels like ten minutes.

It's Simple...

The secret to personal fitness success is consistency. Push your body with aerobic and resistance exercise at least three days a week and your body becomes lean and strong. Everybody understands this, but traditional fitness routines are very hard to stick to over the long-term.

Black Box VR takes the brand new technology of virtual reality and mixes it with decades of exercise science and behaviour change research to move worn out gyms and fitness routines to the dusty shelves of history where they belong.

Technology has improved our lives in almost every aspect. Electric cars replace dirty ones. Smartphones replace land lines. The Internet replaces newspapers and old media. Fitness is still stuck with rusty barbells and mind-numbing treadmills, why? Fitness & gyms seem to be forever frozen in the 1950’s.

But not for long. You deserve better. Black Box VR is coming to give it to you.
