Leveling Up Your Exercises

Leveling Up Your Exercises #

When you start your fitness journey at Black Box VR, you will begin with the lowest resistance level setting. It’s very light and you’ll have no problem doing any of the exercises at first. As you perform exercises, our machine learning system will monitor your progress and abilities. If it sees that you can handle more resistance, it will get heavier automatically for you! We are your AI personal trainer.

Over the first six sessions, we aim to get you to a point where you can do 12 – 15 reps per set for each exercise.  To get fitness results, you need to lift heavy enough to push your body to change, but not so heavy that you get injured. The resistance level is perfect when you can get 12 – 15 reps, but not another one.

Once you learn the game and get calibrated correctly, the goal will be to help you continue to get stronger and more powerful over the next few months and years. The machine learning system will continue to track every rep and every set that you do. At the end of each workout, it will calculate your new resistance levels based on how you have done recently. It can go down if we detect that you need it! It’s smart enough to know exactly what you need.

All of this means that the system is completely personalized to you!


Hero And Exercise Levels #

You’ll be able to track your progress in the free companion app. You can see how your strength has changed over time for each exercise.

You’ll see your Exercise Level for each exercise as well. The higher the Exercise Level, the more damage you are doing per rep!  That means that the stronger you get in real life, the stronger you get in the game. 

You’ll start at Exercise Level 1 and climb from there. You could get to a level 30+!  

The average of all of your Exercise Levels is your Hero Level. Your Hero Level is your badge of honor showing your overall strength, power, endurance, and overall muscular balance. It’s an easy way to track your progress and compare to others.

Every exercise is assigned a specific Element based on the body parts that it works. See the full details in the Elements and Associated Body Parts section.
