This subscription-based VR fitness app takes your workout beyond—way beyond—your four walls. Supernatural was launched in April by Within, a company specializing in immersive tech. Paired with the Oculus Quest or Quest 2 VR headsets, it transports users to places like the Gálapagos Islands, or a volcano in Ethiopia, or the surface of Mars. With the help of a virtual trainer, you strike down targets with your arms and squat your body into triangles on the screen, working up a fierce, but fun, sweat. “I don’t know anyone who runs on a treadmill for entertainment,” says Within co-founder and CEO Chris Milk. “We want you to feel a sense of awe.” A Supernatural subscription costs $19 per month or $179 per year. —Sean Gregory
