3 Elliptical / Treadmill Apps with Virtual Workouts

By  | 

Spending time on a treadmill or elliptical can get a bit boring after a while. You could listen to music or watch a movie as you run. These 3 apps can be more effective as they use virtual tours to help push you to work harder:


BitGym: adds interactive trails to your workout. You can use it on a bike, elliptical, or treadmill. These tours can be viewed on a large TV as well.

Virtual Active: exercising indoors can be boring. This app turns your workout into an outdoor adventure, offering 16 awesome locations. Virtual Active offers footage for runners, cyclists, and hikers.


TreadmillVR Max: provides you with a POV experience of running or exercising outside. Just pick the scene you want, select a companion, listen to your music, and you are set. You can always download additional scenes.

I personally would love to try Oculus Rift for fitness. The above apps don’t replace a sophisticated virtual reality solution but can keep you motivated to go harder.
