Could Virtual Reality Be the Future of Fitness?

Only about 20% of Americans get the recommended amount of exercise a week, according to the Centers for Disease Control, but researchers say there’s a tool on the market that has the potential to change that.

According to industry experts, 2019 was the biggest year yet for virtual reality headset sales and many of the virtual reality games require players to exert an amount of physical energy.

When 28-year-old Martin Calugay straps on his virtual reality headset, his living room becomes his personal boxing gym.

He says between a new baby and a full-time job as a finance client service specialist, it’s been a struggle to exercise and since he’d always liked video games, he says he got a VR headset for Christmas.
