Hi tech + fitness + Wellness = Future
Wearable, training apps and increasingly technologically advanced and digitally equipped equipment are, on the other hand, disproving our beliefs and allaying our fears: today we know that technology, fitness and wellness can not only live together, but also work together.
VR Wellness Spaces
The number of virtual spaces dedicated to body (but also mind) care is increasing at a glance. Training in the gym or even at home while experiencing the experience of being on a Caribbean beach or immersed in the unspoiled nature of a Nordic forest is no longer science fiction.
Gaming and fitness: never so close
In Singapore, for example, a city that is a symbol of the high-tech revolution worldwide, one of the gyms in the Pure Fitness family offers the opportunity to train and play a video game at the same time. Literally: playing a video game and training.
It is called VirZOOM Virtual Reality Bike and is the first static bike to have VR technology. Through a virtual reality headset, VirZOOM allows cyclists to choose from six different games, all of which integrate the exercise on the bike with various scenarios and game objectives. An immersive experience in the true sense of the term, involving the whole body in a workout that has never been so much fun.

There are many skeptics, but John Farkas, CEO of Cubicle Ninjas, the digital agency that developed Guided Meditation VR, is convinced: "Virtual reality has the emotionally very powerful ability to take people to another place, at a time when they are experiencing the emotional weight that comes from feeling in another place.
At this point, all that remains to try is to meet on the beach in half an hour?
The times of the trinomial videogames-settee-junk food seem to be at the drip.
