I’m a big fan of the 7-minute workout and urge you all to try it as it simply focus on intensity of exercise rather than duration.

I’ve tried this oculus last Gitex is Dubai at the du booth. It was a roller coster 3D show that made me end up feel dizzy and … Even I was on static chair. Unbelievable!

Runtastic team have decided to go the extra mile and present the 7-minute workout on a virtual reality so that you would have a special experience doing your fitness exercise. Imagine if :

– The experience becomes more social with avatars of your friends playing with you.

– It would be cool to give you control by pointing on some items in the room rather than interrupt the experience of the virtual world using mouse of other classical means of command entry.

Ain’t you excited to try it out next time you exercise. So do me ☺
