VFit is Coming to a Gym Near You: VirtualU Launches 3D Human Body Scanner

It’s a tape measure. It’s a scale. And, it’s the newest and coolest technology that will help scores of gym buffs manage their fitness health.

Enter VFit. This new 3D human body scanner developed by VirtualU just launched and over the next year it will be available at gyms across the United States.

VFit looks like a huge phone booth- weighing in at over 600 pounds – and it is equipped with the latest and greatest in technology: cameras, lasers and scanners.

After stepping inside the futuristic-looking booth and closing the door, VFit does all the work and captures thousands of close-up images of your body.After stepping inside the futuristic-looking booth and closing the door, VFit does all the work and captures thousands of close-up images of your body.

After stepping inside the futuristic-looking booth and closing the door, VFit does all the work and captures thousands of close-up images of your body.

And the process is quick and precise. The unit scans an entire body within 10 seconds and 3D images are instantly produced. The 3D technology simply digitizes your body in a hyper- authentic replica. VFit also provides important data, including your weight, height, Body Mass Index (BMI), and even muscle mass.

While the invention provides unique information on the state of one’s body and overall health, its real purpose is the help people track and plan their fitness goals, says Caroline Pugh, the co-founder and owner of VirtualU.

“This will be an eye-opening experience, whether it is positive or negative…it will be the kick to motivate people to get into the gym on a regular basis,” says Pugh.

“It's a very straightforward and simple process,” she says. “It's a quick process, too: All it takes is those 10 seconds, plus a few more for your data to download to VFit's app for your own personal use.”

Pugh, a graduate of Virginia Tech, adds, “No matter who you are – whether you're trying to lose 10 pounds or are a top athlete – you have fitness goals. It's the first time you'll be able to have a portable, 3D model of yourself you can view any time. You can scan however as often you want and see the changes in your body on a daily basis to determine if you're making progress.”

While 3D human body scanners are pricey – ranging from $25,000.00 to $250,000.00 (USD) – VFit will cost approximately $5,000.00. The price, which is affordable for well-established gyms, is value well spent as this technology is totally accurate and reliable. Users will only need to pay $9.00 per scan.
