Are you a fan of treadmills, because if you are you might know by now that it is the most versatile way to work out. Most people will prefer an early morning jog over an hour over the treadmill, saying the fresh air is better for the lungs, the scenery is better and so on. But we know treadmills have their own advantages too. You can work out at your own leisure and you can run for as long as you like. However, using a treadmill over a long period of time can get boring too.
Running on a Treadmill is Boring but No More
Looking at the same wall or window will bore our minds to exhaustion. The important thing to remember while working out is that our minds need to be stimulated too. This is what the outdoor runners talk about while they say fresh air and scenery. Fortunately, we have a solution for this problem. We can get into the world of online running using the Vingo app.
On Vingo, you can get the feeling of the outdoors through the virtual reality it creates in front of us. All we need to do is place a screen in front of our treadmill and voila, we’re outdoors again, exploring the world while we jog and run.
Activity Tracking with ANT+ Sensors
Vingo is filled with exciting features like the activity tracker, which continuously monitors our running speed, pace, etc. This will help the app to give you suggestions on improving your stride. In fact whatever motion happens in the real world is transferred into the virtual world where your avatar moves and explores new places.
You can also set your daily and monthly goals on the app, so as to monitor your progress easily and make improvements when necessary. Vingo turns your indoor running into an easy fitness training period.
VR Enabled Virtual World
The most eye-catching feature about Vingo is the maps/ locations in it. The locations are designed to look like the actual places and they will make you feel like you’ve teleported to the location in an instant. You can explore these places and learn cool facts and information about them. The online running app will become your private tour guide every morning.
Another cool feature is the option to create and join communities in the app. These communities will help you meet new people, from all across the world. You can join communities based on your location, work-out types, such as, running, cycling, jogging, etc, or based on your language, time zone, and more. When you work-out with like-minded people, you will automatically get a mental boost to push your limits.
You can also create new connections with people you meet on Vingo. Use the Voice chat option to talk with them in real-time and find your work-out buddies.
Or, if you feel like you need a time-out from socialising, you can always press the mute button and go on a quiet run. So, what are you waiting for? Get into Vingo and explore the world!
