Here are Some of the Top Virtual Reality Fitness Trends.
• Immersive Fitness
The same exercise routines can get mundane, leaving you less enthusiastic to workout. On the other hand, immersive fitness, may be just the change you need. Spinning class, for example, can take on a whole new perspective when you add giant images projected on 3D screens in front of you while cycling. Imagine yourself speeding down a beautiful countryside in Europe, or cycling to go up the mountain of a hilly terrain, all the while in the comfort of an air-conditioned gym. This setting can create an exciting illusion that can energize your workout for better results.
• Goji Play
To revive a sometimes monotonous cardio routine, using Goji Play, a person using the stationary bike, elliptical, or stepper, downloads an app that has numerous games the user can download and play while using their gym equipment. Goji play uses two straps that have buttons on them that you simply wrap around the handles of the fitness equipment mentioned above.
• Virtual Reality Boxing
In a virtual ring, this VR game lets you workout simulating a boxing match where you’ll punch, duck, and react, while you work up a sweat. You will need touch controllers to play the game. The Box Method in the UK, was started as the world’s first virtual boxing experience, and the Thrill of the Fight is another VR boxing game.
• Headsets for Virtual Reality Fitness
You can transform your workout into a virtual reality experience with using the HTC Vive, and the Oculus rift headsets that combine with apps on the computer to liven up your workout.

The possibilities are endless as more games arrive on the market.
• Multi-Sensory Yoga
