The Virtual Reality Institute of Health and Exercise does research on the impact of virtual reality exercise on the human body. They concluded that exercising in VR with the right games can burn more calories than most dedicated workout equipment at the gym.

Like electric scooters and vapes, virtual reality is a technological innovation that is incredibly easy to make fun of.

I associate VR — an interactive experience that transports the user to an artificial world — with gamers, the porn industry and people who ride Boosted Boards in the bike lane. This is why, when I noticed Black Box VR pop up on Market Street across from the headquarters of Twitter and Uber, it felt like the punchline to a joke only a San Franciscan could make.

Black Box is the world’s first VR gym. Founded in 2016 by Ryan DeLuca and Preston Lewis, the company plans to transform — OK, “disrupt” — the boutique fitness industry by combining two things Americans love: trendy fitness and video games. I don’t like either of these things, so I decided to try it.

The perfect domain for digital natives!
