Anyone using VR games to get in shape?

I've always known that the time will come when gamers will be ripped, even more than the bros simply because of vr. Just wondering if that time is already here.

Considering getting Vive pro and playing games like thrill of the fight and beat saber. Does anyone have experience doing this?

      I do, but it's kind of boring so I don't want to spend more than 1 hr 5 days a week there. Would rather expend more calories doing something I enjoy way more (gaming)

    dude, the secret to lose weight is simple, measure your calories. Getting shape VR can help but thats overkill, just go to the gym and put goals and watch netflix on cardio

      I actually already do that, and am in ok shape at the moment, but after reaching home I'm either watching TV or on my PC playing games (so no physical activity after 7pm). If I could cram some more low intensity workout with VR while playing games that would be great and would be an enjoyable way to get more ripped rather than slogging an extra hour at the gym

    World over stereotypical over weight gamers are rapidly becoming chick magnet.

    Rest is for you to judge.

    Yea you can get a pretty decent work out from VR. I don't think you can get buff from it but it's good cardio

    Lol did this ages ago with dance dance revolution in my college years. Fun times. Now I just hit the gym or go outside and bike or something.
