May 21st, 2019 – The creator of sports and games of the future, Valo Motion from Finland, has reached a major milestone of burning over 350 million calories with their climbing wall and trampoline games.

Players on the climbing wall game ValoClimb have also saved the planet from 17 million virtual asteroids and smashed 66 million virtual bats in over 11 million game sessions and with 383,000 hours of fun gameplay.

“The total calorie consumption of our products equals walking around the world a whopping 145 times! Wall climbing and trampoline jumping are both great exercises, but ValoClimb and ValoJump makes them more fun and more efficient because of their competitive nature. You will push your limits further when collecting points or competing against your friend”, comments Dr. Raine Kajastila, CEO and founder of Valo Motion. "Players are happy for action filled and fun exercise and location owners get a lot of customers in to play our games. It's a win-win situation.”

The company behind the impressive numbers has become a powerhouse of the augmented reality fitness and family entertainment products. Their products are already used in over 45 countries and in over 200 partner locations. Currently people all over the world have fun with Valo Motion’s climbing wall and trampoline games in nearly one million monthly game sessions while exercising at their own pace.

Calorie consumption calculations are based on an 83 kilogram male (184 lbs) by using research results from Harvard Medical School and American Council on Exercise.
