Black Box: The Virtual Reality Gym

Brock London

Originating from Idaho, Black Box VR gym offers members a way to include technology in their workouts, and has a location in Scottsdale, Ariz.

The purpose of the gym is to encourage those who may be feeling unmotivated at the gym. A VR experience can add a competitive aspect to the gym like never before. The gym can become fun as gym goers battle each other in a virtual world while working out.

At the Black Box gym, users go into separate rooms: Black Boxes. Hands Free Controllers are strapped onto the wrist to track the movement of the member. A HTC Vive headset is put on the head where a virtual stadium is then presented. 

There is a location of Black Box gym here in Scottsdale, Ariz. 14843 Northsight Blvd.
