Black Box VR was featured in Tony Robbins’ new book, Life Force! Check out this excerpt:
“When it comes to building strength over time, one of the most motivating aspects is really pretty simple: Its all about having fun. If you’re having fun, you’re much more likely to keep working out and stick with your training.
Now, I’m the first to acknowledge that I’m not much of a gamer, so it would have been easy for me to overlook Black Box, which is based on virtual reality. I’m not going to lie: the virtual reality component of Black Box, an exercise platform whose results match or beat those of traditional fitness formats, seemed complex at first. But when I got into it, it was extraordinary.
I felt like I was singularly focused and incredibly energized; I felt purposeful and powerful at the same time. It was an incredibly intense workout, too. When it was over, I was soaked and had worked every last muscle. But here’s the key: It didn’t feel like work! It felt like pure fun, and the time just disappeared. I couldn’t wait to do it again.
The secret sauce is not that the core element of Black Box workouts is radically different from standard hit-the-gym sessions; it’s that even the most dedicated gym rats can have trouble staying motivated. Black Box is inspired by the fact that gyms are packed every January but empty by March.
The Black Box product incorporates the addictive qualities of a video game into a virtual reality eSports-style fitness module that entices enthusiasts to show up day after day, consistently building muscle, increasing their endurance, and boosting their overall wellness.
Black Box is so engaging that it makes people stick to their workout schedule, which means they achieve their fitness goals.
Black Box users spend just thirty minutes getting fit as their workout stats are automatically tracked. You can even engage in friendly competitions with other Black Box users anywhere, which is great for people like me who thrive on competition. The technology is available only at official Black Box VR gyms or at commercial gyms that participate, but within a few years, a home version should be ready.”
Black Box VR is the world’s first virtual reality esport that combines resistance training, HIIT cardio, and intense gaming to deliver a science-backed workout experience. With gym locations open in San Francisco, Phoenix, Oceanside, and Boise, members are able to build muscle, lose fat, and get fit while playing an addictive game.
