Best Fitness Video Games 2021: Workout Games To Get Your Body Moving Indoors

Just in time for the new year, we've rounded up the best fitness games to help you get your workout on indoors.


The new year is in full swing, and although health and fitness resolutions are always popular this time of year, you won't see an influx of new people hitting the gym this month due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, many people are likely still considering ways to improve their fitness in 2021, and when it comes to staying active indoors, video games are a fantastic option that makes staying in shape feel a little less arduous. Yes, not all video games involve lounging around--the category of fitness games has been a small but popular one ever since the juggernaut Wii Fit released back in 2007. Nintendo remains the key player in this space, with its flagship fitness game for Switch, Ring Fit Adventure, becoming hard to find in stock for most of 2020 due to increased demand.

Whether you haven't worked out in a while or are looking for a game to add to your current exercise routine, there are some great games out there to get you on your feet and moving. From Just Dance to Beat Saber, here are some of our favorite workout games for 2021. These fitness-oriented titles will get your heart racing and leave you feeling like you've just hit the gym.

Best fitness games for 2021

Here are some of the best fitness games available on consoles. Most of the options here are exclusive to the Nintendo Switch, which has been the dominant platform for workout games since the massive success of Wii Fit.

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 new Oculus Quest 2 released in 2020 is an excellent choice and remarkably affordable at just $299 for the 64GB 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.
