"It doesn't mean you've got it, but if it is there, you can fix it," he told Fairfax Media.

"The whole operation and the recovery was easier than some of the rugby injuries I've had," he said.

"But what's happened did clarify for me that I'd made the right decision," he added.

To start a workout the user literally walks into a black cubicle where they place a VR set onto their head and get attached to the Black Box fully automated cable resistance machine that integrates with HTC Vive. What happens next is compared to a device used in science, computing or engineering, where an input is transformed into an output without much knowledge of the internal workings.
