Roam149 is one of the latest gyms to open in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood.
Inside, there’s a wall lined with gear like weights, Bosus, and a squat rack.
On the other side of the small gym, there are rows of treadmills that are individually separated by a thin “wall.”
These aren’t your typical treadmills available at everyday gym.
Sounds intriguing? I agree. And that’s why I decided to visit for a Wednesday afternoon workout.
I had my doubts (and by that, I mean my confusions). But now that I’ve tried the tech out, I’m hooked.
The use of virtual reality in fitness isn’t a new concept, but until Roam149, I had never visited a conventional gym that integrated this tech into its equipment.
