Lose Weight With This HTC Vive Workout

Here's something you might not have thought about when it comes to playing room scale VR games. You can actually use games to get some exercise and have fun at the same time.

That’s when Donahey decided to challenge himself and kickoff a 50-day VR fitness challenge. The goal آ— lose 2 pounds a week, from a starting weight of 180.4 pounds, using only the VIVE in one-hour sessions. We were able to checkin with Donahey who started his fitness challenge 40 days ago and he has already lost 12 pounds آ— exceeding his weekly weight loss goal of 2 pounds a week by 0.4 pounds. With an average calorie burn of around 700 per workout session, Donahey is right on track to hitting his goal of losing 14.3 pounds in 50 days.
