If you want to start spring with a great figure, you should already pay attention to your diet and do something for your fitness. Video games can also help, as the following five games show.

Just Dance 2022

As the title suggests, Just Dance 2022 is all about dancing for Sony’s PS4 and PS5, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Google Stadia. Players swing their hips alone or with friends to songs like “Run the World (Girls)” by Beyoncé (40) or Camila Cabello’s (24) “Don’t Go Yet”. In “Sweat” mode, the game displays the time you danced and roughly the calories you burned.

“Beat Saber”

In the virtual reality game (VR) “Beat Saber” for different VR devices on the PC and PSVR, gamers also need a sense of rhythm. They try to hit blocks flying towards them with digital lightsabers to the beat of the music. This can quickly become challenging and quite a workout – especially when chasing higher and higher high scores.

“Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm And Exercise”

Players pay attention to the rhythm again in “Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm And Exercise” for Nintendo Switch. However, they do exercises from the world of boxing for 23 songs. Previous knowledge is not necessary. The game is also suitable for beginners who do not yet know the difference between a jab and an uppercut.

“Ring Fit Adventure”

“Ring Fit Adventure” for the Switch also gets gamers on their toes. In a colorful adventure in a fantasy world, they face opponents with different attacks based on fitness exercises. The Joy-Con controllers are connected to a large ring (Ring-Con) and a leg strap and thus transmit the movements into the game.

“Pokemon Go”

The big hype surrounding the smartphone game “Pokémon Go” may have been over for years, but many people are still playing the hit from the summer of 2016. Augmented reality games (AR) like this one are just right for everyone who take it easy and still want to do something for your health. Because “Pokémon Go” sends players out into the fresh air, where they can catch the little pocket monsters. And that is certainly more fun for some people than just going for a walk.
