I’ve always loved fitness. As a young girl, I was involved in competitive swimming, dance and gymnastics. As an adult, I’ve found a love for running and love the endorphins that I get from it. My favorite workouts are always ones that take me into the outdoors and group classes. Group fitness classes are about to be taken to a whole new level that will give you an experience like no other thanks to The Project: Les Mills Immersive Fitness. I’ve taken body pump, zumba and step classes in the past. Group fitness is fun, but wouldn’t it be even more fun if you could have an experience with a group? Immersive Fitness allows you to act and be in the moment. It includes wrap around projection and LED technology which transforms a studio into something more than just a workout.
About Immersive Fitness from Les Mills:
Imagine doing squats in a LES MILLS GRIT™ class… now imagine ducking to avoid objects flying overhead in a virtual obstacle course. Imagine doing jabs in a BODYCOMBAT™ class … now imagine having to punch objects as they hurtle toward you from the distance. Imagine doing a hill climb in RPM™ – now imagine scaling a giant mountain at night in the Alps.
IMMERSIVE FITNESS™ brings another sense of purpose to studio fitness. A sense of focus as you react to visual cues. Instead of counting reps, you react directly to visual cues.
After getting a peek into The Project: Les Mills Immersion Fitness, it has me wanting to attend a class. You of course still have an instructor, but the instructor gives cues for exercise moves that correspond with the particular workout.
The workouts include:
- BODYPUMP™ (weights)
- BODYCOMBAT™ (martial arts)
- RPM™ (indoor cycling)
The Project will be touring in European cities including London, Stockholm, Berlin, Amsterdam, Paris and Milan. Anyone can register and you can do so by watching for Instagram Project updates and by following the hashtag #immersivefitness.
My favorite part is that it is supposed to be here in the US by 2015. You’d better believe that I will be seeking out a gym that has the Les Mills Immersive Fitness when it comes to the states next year.
The next level of fitness is here. IMMERSIVE FITNESS™ surrounds participants with cinema quality video content projected onto screens of a purpose-built studio. Exercise moves synchronize perfectly with music and graphics, creating a truly immersive fitness experience. Learn more!
