Les Mills' The Trip
Sometimes a spin class can feel as monotonous as an hour on the treadmill, but Les Mills immersive fitness programs are trying to turn your average cycling session into a journey. Their futuristic class, The Trip, takes place in a spin studio with a giant screen in the front of the room to create a virtual reality-like experience. The "road" ahead of you will move and turn as you cycle, making it feel less like you're in a dark room surrounded by strangers and more like you're playing Mario Kart, riding through uncharted territory. The class is currently available at 24 Fitness in Santa Monica and TMPL in New York City, with more locations coming soon to big gyms around the country.
