You have a balanced endurance and cardio workout with a selected moderate sound option. You have a highly intense and hard workout with a selected hard sound option. You can also mix it up and turn it into high-intensity interval training. As a member, you can create your own timers. Depending on what kind of hard tracks are played, you have an insanity workout. It’s designed to exercise your rhythm and style of workout tower exercises. You can use it to lose weight, improve and strengthen yourself or just for a good VR workout time.
