Bored with exercising? Virtual reality, immersive fitness might help

( CNN) The spin instructor let on a loud “Woooo !! ” as she led her students up hills, through rings of fire and outer space. They even rode through jungles, deserts and fantasy worlds.

CNN recently observed a class at 24 Hour Fitness in Santa Monica called “The Trip” which is offered in simply a handful of gyms in the U.S. The elaborate videos appeared on floor-to-ceiling 3-D screens and were synced to music.

The spin students peddled in a room lit largely by the screens. They leaned their bikes side to side, up and down as if they’re riding the curves and mounds in front of them.
