AR/VR Weekly
Between gym closures from the pandemic and my allergies (seriously – I went out to play with my kids for an hour Tuesday, and nearly 24 hours later I still am a congested, coughing mess), fitness has been a struggle. I’m someone who lost more than 100 pounds a few years ago, and while I’m not quite as vigilant as I once was about my diet and exercise, I don’t want to put on “the COVID-19 15.”
I’ve gotten a sweat on with Beat Saber and Creed: Rise to Glory, but these don’t feel like good replacements for full-body workouts. Now, I’m not sure Supernatural is, either, but I’m going to find out.
My question to you: Are you using VR for fitness during the pandemic? And if so, what apps and games are getting your sweat on?
