Best Fitness Games In 2022: Workout While Gaming

If you're looking to have fun and workout, these video games might be just what you need to add to your routine.


You don't need to leave the house to get a good workout, and nowadays you can even turn exercising into a game. Fitness video games have increased in popularity over the years, and there is no shortage of options out there that allow you to burn calories while playing a game. The best fitness games in 2022 come in two categories: VR games and non-VR games. Virtual reality fitness games can up the immersion, with games like Beat Saber capable of putting you in a zen-like trance that will make the minutes pass by quickly. That said, there are some wonderful non-VR fitness games, especially if you have a Nintendo Switch. Both Ring Fit Adventure and Fitness Boxing are excellent choices for Switch owners looking for a workout. And with Nintendo Switch Sports releasing later this month, you'll have another option to add to your routine--one that will get the whole family up and moving. We've rounded up the best fitness games in 2022. These workout-oriented titles will get your heart racing and leave you feeling like you've just hit the gym.

Best VR fitness games

While VR isn't the most accessible platform for playing games, the physical aspects of VR gaming can make for an intensive workout, and we'd be remiss not to mention titles like Beat Saber here. If you're someone who's interested in VR, the Oculus Quest 2 (technically called Meta Quest now) is an excellent choice and remarkably affordable at just $299 for the 128GB model.Check out our Oculus Quest 2 review for more info and check availability at Amazon below.

Most VR headsets come bundled with motion controllers, but if you have PSVR, you'll want to pick up a pair of Move Motion Controllers if you can. See our list of the best VR headsets for more details on the headsets we recommend.
