Today I’ve decided to start exercising by just playing certain virtual reality games. I came to the idea after trying out the demo of the game Racket: Nx. A fantastic virtual reality game which is a combination of racquetball and pinball.
I was playing this game for 100 minutes today and I could really feel my body working out.
What’s better than being able to enjoy a VR game and also exercise at the same time. Well, it’s not something new, and there are even VR gyms that were designed with that in mind. Having said that, now in quarantine (where exists), this is the perfect solution.
I also installed ‘Move’ app on my Oculus Quest 2 to keep on with how many calories I burn and how long I exercise each day. I set up a goal and I make sure that I compete that goal.
I hope do discover more cool VR games that will make me have fun and exercise at the same time.
If you are looking for one now, I recommend Racket: Nx. It’s available for Oculus Rift/Rift S, Oculus Quest (installable on the headset), Vive Index, HTC Vive and Windows Mixed Reality—Have Fun!
