Beat Saber is such a great way to for anyone of any ability to get fit in virtual reality, and at the same time have some real fun. Also it's not just for Luke Skywalker 👀
A full body workout
You'll be surprised at how much you have to move your body when playing Beat Saber. Of course, you might think that it involves mostly just your arms, seeing as you're slashing and cutting boxes, but that's just not the case, a lot of the games have large oblong boxes that make you duck and shift you balance from side to side as you play.
It gets your heart pumping
If you use Beat Saber as just one part of your overall fitness routine, especially as the cardio element, it's perfect, as it really gets your heart pumping. The great thing is you can play standing or sitting and in a tight space, so it's a suitable for almost for everyone.
Reduce gym boredom
Beat Saber and its immersive nature is perfect for people who hate the gym and all the politics that that can attract. Not to mention, driving, parking, showering in dirty locker rooms, nope!
So what makes Beat Saber the go-to game in VR?
Beat Saber is basically a rhythm game. You use your hand controllers to slash blocks to the beat of the music. When you play it, you feel like a Jedi Knight cutting through waves of enemies in Star Wars!
Beat Saber's appeal is legion for many reasons: it's easy to pick up and play on any level, there's no complicated controls, just swing your arms and try to keep up!, and it's visually stunning with great music that you can't help but dance along to, plus you can buy extra music packs if you fancy Billie Eilish or step up the beat with the Rock music pack.
