7 Best Games For Working Out At Home
If, like us, your step counters have been reduced to tracking your movement between the fridge and the couch, there is hope! For those of you itching for a little more physical activity in the confines of your home, there are plenty of games you can play right now to get up off the couch and get moving.
In a new video, Jess McDonell runs down some of the best games you can play right now to help get your heart rate up, including Nintendo’s Ring Fit Adventure for Switch (if you can find a copy!), Fitness Boxing, Just Dance, and the VR game that makes you feel like John Wick, Pistol Whip. Be sure to watch the full video to see all the games we recommend to help you break a sweat at home.
Multiple-player workout games is the best motivation
Who exactly is still doing the virtual work out? What kind of people would prefer this over getting out in reality?
have you already played it?
Dance Dance Revolution
Nintendo switch on Vr please Nintendo
Nothing will beat Wii fit and Wii Sports for me.Good times.
Play Thrill of the fight on Oculas that’s a real workout
What about Dark Souls? That'll make you get a sweat on
The best work out games are the multiplayer ones that have lobbies and queue times.
Hit "join" or "fight" or whatever, and then crank out max push ups during the "looking for matches" load screen.
Play your match then queue back up. Now do squats. Play your match then do sit-ups, then lunges etc etc.
What about broke people who can't afford VR?
I remember Dance Dance Revolution, that'll get your legs shaking like jelly after 18 hours of playing
After couple weeks of just sitting in front of the computer i played few rounds of Pistol Whip and oh boy, my legs were sore for the next 4 days. Love that game!
Why games when dumbbells and other fitness products are much more effective? I'm enjoying the bow a lot recently, your arms get strong from the drawing and more precise for a steady aim. Or try knife throwing, can be frustrating at first and takes a lot of practice but if you master it it's a lot of fun
Me and my wife have been playing a workout game all isolation long 😉
mmm.. nice 🙂
i've been playing fitness boxing for 3weeks now and it's a great alternative to cardio.
Where is the fitness boxing video that Jess talk about?
Best Game For Working Out At Home: Actually working out instead of getting distracted by motion-control games, lol. It's the same whether it's Wii games or VR games. They are fine for light cardio but a real workout is much more effective and much more efficient in terms of time spent.
Aaaaaand…what's the game in the thumbnail?
Thanks for checking this one out guys! I'm going to be honest, I'm still on my couch more often than not but a few minutes of some ACTUAL activity does seem to do me good haha. Hope you're all keeping well!
Gorn (VR) in Endless mode is the first VR game I put on just to get warmed up and, if I stay on it, basically go into full ripped mode lol
They forgot Wii Fit
Hey what's the best hands free game consoles for workout & dancing
is the Switch a better option for those kind of games that require movement tracking ?
(not talkjng about the VR)
Xbox and ps4 have cameras and accessories too.
Xbox fitness was great but got canceled
Nintendo Ring Fit Adventure is the best game for cardio.
Haha Ringfit adventure if I would play that. I would have a godlevel in no time. Looks like peanuts to me.
I love Ringfit adventure! It's the reason I bought a switch because it's hard to find an active game. It works for me and I'm glad it has a lot of levels
super hot is a better game than pistol whip
