Break a Sweat to Supernatural, a Home Gym With a VR Twist
We’re living at work, working at home, and, on good days, working out somewhere between, in the same space every day. It’s enough to make anyone pine for an escape, and one zany fitness start-up, Supernatural, offers precisely that in the form of a VR exercise class. The next-level experience offers a range of cardio, upper-body, and lower-body workouts set against transporting backdrops, in far-flung destinations ranging from the mountain ridges of Machu Picchu to the 1,500 islands of the Indonesian archipelago Raja Ampat. A subscription to the platform runs close to the typical cost of a streaming service, but unlike Netflix or Hulu, this one will actually get you off the couch—even if just a few steps from it—and momentarily transport you into another, fitter world.
