Each person who commits to improved wellness begins a unique journey with different health considerations, preferences, and goals. Supernatural continues to excel in the realm of VR fitness and their latest update focuses on individual needs by providing an even more incredible experience that enables members to apply filters, browse new workout carousels, and quickly find the perfect session among Supernatural’s 500+ workout library.
“Everyone’s fitness journey is unique. You might have a specific taste in music, a specific coach you connect with, or a level of intensity that matches your goals for the day,” says Leanne Pedante, Supernatural’s Head of Fitness.
“With Supernatural 3.0, we’ve made it even easier to find the perfect workouts for you no matter where you are in your fitness journey. This makes staying consistent with your fitness routine that much more fun, joyful and satisfying.”
Supernatural is a fantastic combination of meditation, stretching, and sweat sessions. What’s even better is that the immersive nature of virtual reality allows you to experience these workouts on an almost ethereal level.
For example, I’m a fan of autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) and there have been times in Supernatural when a sedating, calming sensation will make my skin tingle. The coaches do a great job of keeping you motivated and helping you sweat while simultaneously maintaining a state of relaxation. It’s quite wonderful actually.
