I love group fitness. I am not able to do it all the time because it’s hard to commit to the classes while coordinating the kids’ schedules, but I love doing zumba, yoga, pilates, body pump- I am open to anything really. This year the group class I focused on TRX which was something different for me. I am always up for new-to-me classes because I think it’s so important to vary your exercise routine.
Speaking of new…..
You’ve probably heard of Les Mills , the creator of global group fitness and team training programs such as BODYPUMP™, BODYCOMBAT™ and RPM™? They obviously think it’s important to vary your routine too.
Les Mills has a new exercise concept, like no other, which integrates exercise with technology and creative design. It’s called Immersive Fitness™ and sounds really neat- studio fitness that features cinema quality video content projected onto screens of a purpose-built studio.
When I first read about it I thought participants went into a studio room and just followed along with an exercise video in a group setting, but I was wrong. There is an actual instructor who cues exercise moves that synchronize perfectly with music and graphics, creating a truly immersive fitness experience.
Having a hard time imagining what this class would be like? “Participants taking part in a cycle class may find themselves riding up an impossibly steep glacier or sprinting their way around a digital velodrome. In a dance class you might be immersed in a tent at a music festival, where everybody’s dancing together.” The studio can be transformed into whatever they want it to be. Not only will it be an amazing workout, it will also require a sense of focus as you react to visual cues on the screen.

I personally think it would be pretty cool. I imagine the class would fly by because you’d be distracted by what’s on screen and it would put you in a zone, away from day-to-day thoughts and focused on your new surroundings. Love the combination of imagination with fitness.
The Project: IMMERSIVE FITNESS™ will make it’s debut in London and do a promotional tour of major European giving fitness enthusiasts the opportunity to experience the new program free of charge. A wider consumer launch in Europe and the United States is planned for 2015.
If you’re on Instagram I encourage you to follow the project.
