FitXR is Making its Workout Classes More Accessible

Subscription-based virtual reality (VR) fitness app FitXR wants to make its workouts as accessible as possible so that any player can participate. To that end, FitXR will be rolling out six new accessibility classes starting this week through to November for subscribers.

FitXR has three core studios Box, HIIT and Dance which you can participate in, each offering a slightly different workout regimen. While the Box Studio already featured classes that could be played seated thanks to disengaging the squat feature, the other two did not. So these new classes address that imbalance.

There will be five new HIIT classes and one for Dance, all designed so that users with varying degrees of mobility can enjoy an engaging workout.

“Our goal at FitXR has always been to deliver an unparalleled VR fitness experience accessible by anyone, from anywhere, fit for the future of fitness,” said Sam Cole, Co-Founder and CEO of FitXR. “We realize that fitness is not one-size-fits-all, so we’re thrilled to continuously create content that is accessible to a broad range of people, regardless of their experience, goals or mobility.”

FitXR moved to a subscription-based model back in April, where after a free trial it costs $9.99 USD a month. A couple of months ago the studio confirmed it was working with Sony Music, Warner Music and more so that subscribers could workout to the likes of Calvin Harris, Tiësto, Krystal Clear and Eli Brown. As further updates are released, VRFocus will let you know.
