Virtual reality in sport

Professional sports teams are embracing the benefits of virtual reality technology

Virtual reality (VR) has transformed the gaming world and now it’s easier than ever to get fit while enjoying some of your favourite sports from the comfort of your own home.

Today VR is used as a training aid in many sports such as golf, athletics and cycling and is helping transform the industry as a whole. By generating fully immersive realistic environments, VR is used to create life-like training sessions for athletes, helping coaches successfully measure performance and analyse techniques.

Recreating competitive scenarios using VR also provides a successful way for athletes to increase their mental stamina.  

A number of sports are already using VR to their full advantage, including American Football teams who have incorporated the technology into their training sessions. VR has also become prominent in basketball, with the NBA leading the way in using the technology to improve the game.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to enjoy the physical benefits VR tech can bring. 

Thanks to a range of new headsets such as Occulus Quest 2 it’s never been easier to immersive yourself in the world of VR and get moving. Featuring a blazing-fast processor and high-resolution display this all-in-one VR system has an expansive library of inspiring games designed to keep you active.

With minimal adjustment to your lifestyle, VR is a great way to infuse more physical activity into your daily routine and enjoy all the benefits exercise can bring
