For a workout from the future, check out Pure Fitness’ new cycling experience: The Trip. Housed in the swanky new California Tower location, the 270-degree immersive cinema studio makes your workout fly by with futuristic graphic displays that give riders the sensation of turning around corners, climbing hills and flying down mountainsides. We tried a surreal “Trip” that took us through mesmerizing glaciers, racing through space and cooling down with a gentle ride across the ocean. It is kinda like racing through a super sophisticated version of Mario Kart's Rainbow Road level, except you're burning calories instead of sitting on the couch. 

$50 for Pure Fitness California Tower members; $350 for public day rate, includes access to all fitness facilities. 18/F, California Tower, 30-32 D'Aguilar St., Central, 8200-0032, www.pure-fitness.com.
