VR games for burning calories? Is this true? It sure is. VR games can help you improve, not just physically but mentally as well. What VR can do (and what draws people to it) is that it is the ultimate immersive experience. Plus, VR has a lot of benefits over regular exercise:
- It keeps your mind distracted, which can allow you push a little further.
- The addictive nature of VR is built on the idea of gamification. Meaning you can collect rewards and rank against other players. It allows for more competition.
- It can increase your calories burned.
- It can be cheaper than a gym or fitness class membership.
- Plus, playing a game while exercising beats staring at a wall while doing some push-ups.
