Join Les Mills on Thursday 3rd October for a series of free cycling sessions in London’s first immersive cycling studio. THE TRIP, Les Mills’ state-of-the-art immersive fitness experience transports the fitness class from the gym floor to virtual reality landscapes.
Taking place at Covent Garden’s Jubilee Hall Gym in partnership with Jubilee Hall Trust between 5pm and 8pm, the sessions are free to Londoners looking to trial a stimulating and unique fitness experience.
Group exercise provider and global fitness brand Les Mills launched THE TRIP, which combines cinema-quality video with a dynamic soundtrack to create virtual unique audio-visual worlds. Giving riders the sensation of ascending steep glaciers, sprinting around digital velodromes, diving underwater and even speeding through ancient Greece.
“THE TRIP is the perfect way to hit heart rate zones and get fitter faster, without the discomfort of intensity.” says Head of Research at Les Mills, Bryce Hastings “The convergence of technology, exercise science and creativity creates a workout experience like no other. In the workout you become lost in a journey through digitally created worlds and it takes your motivation and energy output to the next level, plus you’ll burn serious calories.”
THE TRIP also has scientific research to help back up its incredible fitness credentials. Research published in Medicine and Science in Sports & Exercise, shows that using the technology to create an immersive fitness experience increases satisfaction and decreases the rate of perceived exertion for new exercisers.
