This Futuristic Biohacking Workout Gives You a Week’s Worth of Training in a 40-Minute Sesh

Ever wonder what biohacking your workout looks like? Check it out, here.

If there were a gym in a Star Wars movie, it'd probably feature biohacking fitness technology and out-of-this-world weight training machines that use artificial intelligence. Sounds incredibly futuristic, right? Except it actually exists right now, and it's in Beverly Hills.

Upgrade Labs, a wellness center for biohacking your body, is the latest out-there fitness phenomenon that our very own Ella Dove checks out in Well+Good's YouTube series What the Wellness. The idea behind the body-boosting hot box is that it uses really high-tech machines to help you get the most out of your workout in as little time as possible. I'm talking 12 minutes on a machine that replaces a week's worth of strength training and 21 minutes on another that's equivalent to two hours of cardio. Got your attention?

The technology is personalized to your body, and tailored to you on a cellular level for a workout that will give you just what you need in the blink of an eye. Dove's sweat sesh begins with a stretching, boosted by an infrared light that gets the body nice and warm. Next up, she spins on an AI-enhanced spin bike, knocks out her strength training for the week with some pushing and resistance training, and goes through cold compression HIIT (you'll have to see it to understand it). "I feel like James Bond," says Dove in the middle of her workout, which pretty much sums up how she looks like in the lab.

She completes the workout in about 40 minutes, but because this was no usual exercise regimen, it replaces her need to sweat for the rest of the week. Is it actually worth it to go all-out in personalized, maximum-effort on futuristic machines as your workout modality of choice? Does biohacking your fitness routine really work? You'll have to watch it to see just what happens, and be sure to subscribe to What the Wellness to see what's next. It's only going to get weirder.
