When asked how Black Box will change fitness, Preston Lewis, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer added, “We are big believers in the ability of technology and emerging platforms to change people’s lives. Virtual reality, combined with our patent pending resistance training system, and the right game experience will push people to stick to their goals and will usher in a fitness revolution like never before.”

A Black Box client simply steps into the Black Box training room and places the hands-free VR controller wraps around each wrist. This allows the client to interact with the VR environment and without holding controllers. The hands are free to grab resistance handles in a natural and unobstructed way.

Wearing the head mounted display, the client will then get to choose their fitness experience based on what their personal goals are and become a full body controller. As clients exercise with the dynamic resistance machine, they interact with the virtual experience and the senses become immersed. The body tracking signals get sent to the AI hardware and adjust according to a client’s individual goals to deliver a workout that is personalized for them.

Realized Potential

Black Box’s dedicated team has spent years developing the best all-in-one virtual strength training and aerobic experience for their future fitness clients. The Black Box fitness revolution started in early 2016 when Preston Lewis and Ryan DeLuca took a look at the fitness and VR industry and saw that decreasing gym memberships and low attendance were caused by two things — hating to work out and inconsistency. When they experienced VR for themselves, they saw the fitness potential no one else had tapped into. It was this realization that brought about the creation of Black Box VR.

Level Up Your Life

Black Box VR’s mission is “to help you transform your life through addictive fitness experiences that harness the power of immersive technologies.” Their rep reading technology can help diehard and casual fitness clients prevent overuse and injury while also being responsive to those that need more intensity or resistance stacked up against them. Fitness warriors who are looking to break through muscle building, weight loss, or stamina plateaus will break right through them after consistent use of Black Box VR.

The Future of Fitness

Everyone who steps into the Black Box VR training room will have varying levels of fitness abilities and goals they’ll want to accomplish. It’s designed to help guide and shape the realization of those goals into real results by raising the bar on fitness and rising above cross-industry expectations. As the “world’s first virtual reality gym experience,” Black Box VR, is more than just a workout, it’s the future of fitness.
