While plenty of games keep players glued to their seats, Nintendo has managed to take the lead when it comes to getting gamers more physically active. Games like Wii Sports, ARMS, and even Super Mario Party have all made players get more involved in their on-screen action, and now Fitness Boxing enters the ring. It not only encourages players to get out of their seats, but also pushes them to their physical limits with some intense but fun workout routines great for anyone looking to improve their fitness goals.

Fitness Boxing's gameplay and presentation feel like a unique mix between Wii Fit and Just Dance. The motion controls and progress tracking are solid fitness tools, and having the on-screen coach leading you through each routine feels about as good as hitting a real-life gym. The sessions are structured in a way that newcomers can dive right in while even more active and fit players can be left breaking a hefty sweat. Admittedly, it's entirely possible to "game" the system, so to speak. Relying solely on the gyroscopic abilities of the Joy-Con controllers, the game has no way to tell if you're actually in the right poses and following through with the instructions, or simply going through some motions while comfortably seated in a nearby recliner. But if you're willing to commit to an exercise regimen and follow through on a regular basis, Fitness Boxing packs more than enough punch to keep even the most rooted of couch potatoes out of their seats and in fit fighting shape.
