Redefining fitness through immersive technologies and prove that exercise is for everyone.
We create immersive fitness games that provide real-world benefits. Our professionally designed workouts make fitness fun. They combine the enjoyment of gaming with the intensity of a personal training session, all in the comfort of your own home.
Our first product, BOXVR, has been described as ‘Guitar Hero crossed with a studio boxing workout’.
Many users are calling it the best fitness game on the market and it has been awarded "VR Fitness Game of the Year". BOXVR is currently one of the top selling games on the Oculus and Steam stores.
We believe physical activity is the secret to a happy and healthy lifestyle and games are the most effective way to get the most people active.
Inspired by group fitness classes, which blend music and movement to encourage total concentration, we saw an amazing opportunity to combine the mediums of fitness and gaming.
Our design and development teams, which collectively boast more than 60 years of video games industry experience, took up the challenge. The result is VR and AR experiences that enable you to get into a state of flow - an experience so compelling you won't even notice you’re working out.
BoxVR is a boxing-inspired app featuring vibrant graphics and uplifting music. Every aspect of the game is designed to help you focus completely and perform at your best.
Whatever your fitness level, you can put on a VR headset and immerse yourself in BoxVR’s high-intensity routines, choreographed by professional instructors. Jab, weave, and uppercut your way through the levels in time to pumping tracks. Upload your own music and instantly create a tailored boxing workout.
By playing BoxVR regularly you can increase your energy levels, build strength, lose weight, and improve your overall health.
- WORKOUT – On-demand workouts created by professional fitness instructors. Set the length and intensity, then try to beat your best score and move up the leaderboard.
- TRAIN – Upload your own music, generate a customised workout and practise your moves. Choose from three intensity levels.
- SURVIVAL – Box for as long as you can while the intensity increases. How long can you last before your 10 lives run out?
- MULTIPLAYER – Compete against other users in real time. Tackle the same workout together to see who comes out on top.
