Our favorite workout program that has kick-started our fitness journeys and made exercise fun. A rhythm game incorporating popular music you know and love from the 60s to today (as well as classical music from the great composers!), full-body workouts, coaches leading each workout, and real workout locations around the globe (as opposed to digital settings reminiscent of Tron from most other rhythm games). New workouts are added daily. Even beginners will get a good workout in this one. Read more
Choose from boxing or dancing workouts to heart-pumping music led by fitness professionals. New workouts are added regularly. Works different muscles than Supernatural and we view it as a great complementary workout. A good workout for beginners as well as advanced exercisers. Read more

Comes in two separate apps, VZFit Play and VZFitExplore, that you won’t find in the Oculus store until you register with VZFit and receive special invite links. Read more
