When I first heard about the Nexersys, I couldn't help notice the similarities between this interactive video game/ exercise equipment and the Virtuix Omni that was seen on the Shark Tank Show earlier in season 5. Apparently the folks at ComiCon last year also has seen the similarities on these up and coming physical virtual reality games they did a video featuring them both.
The entrepreneur behind the Nexersys is Terry Jones who will be making his way into the Shark Tank with Olympic Boxer Marlen Esparza to demonstrate this very unique piece of equipment. It's obvious just looking at the Nexersys training equipment that this could change all types of commercial and home gyms around the world. I would imagine just about every Boxing, Martial Art and MMA gyms that see this new piece of technology will also want to incorporate this interactive machine into their workouts.
With such a cool looking new workout machine that comes with a lot of built-in motivation that makes you want to work out, I have, to be honest, I was a little sticker shocked when I found out how much a Nexersys Machine costs.
How much would you be willing to spend on a piece of exercise equipment even if was similar to an interactive video game? At a retail price of $2,495.00 for the home version, it really is like buying your own interactive video game with benefits. Dam it, yes I would love to workout on a Nexersys, but I might have to wait on getting my own home version until they come down a little in price. I'm not sure I even want to mention how much the Nexersys Pro version costs, but to a popular gym that can instantly see all the benefits training with this new technology, I suppose $6,995.00 would not seem out of the question.
Nexersys before Shark Tank UpdateIt doesn't take long seeing Nexersys has been well publicized in dozens of news related articles all with positive reviews which frequently get mentioned on the FaceBook and Twitter pages. Grant it there's some very good media coverage that no doubt helped build the Nexersys Brand, but for some reason has decided not to give any mention before going on the Shark Tank Show. I guess I've been writing this blog covering contestants too long to know what that usually means. Did the Nexersys get its butt kicked by Kevin O'Leary or the other Sharks on its valuation? Why else would they publicize all the publicity they've received and left out the one that's probably equal to all the other ones combined? In my opinion just making it on the Shark Tank regardless if you make a deal or not, you have managed to do something thousands of other entrepreneurs only dream about.
Deal or no deal, this is one piece of training equipment I most definitely will try in the future and will always remember where I first heard about the Nexersys, On the Shark Tank Show of course!
