When the world makes it difficult for a person to get to the gym, one sensible solution is to bring the gym to the person. Fitness Boxing 2: Rhythm & Exercise does a fantastic job of giving players that personal training feel in the comfort of their own living rooms. This sequel to 2019's Fitness Boxing on the Switch allows owners of that game to transfer their profiles to the new title to continue their long-term fitness goals. That being said, Fitness Boxing 2 doesn't reinvent the wheel. It plays much more like an expansion pack, building on the foundation of the original. There are a few cool additions, including a new soundtrack and three new instructors. Both the retuning and the new instructors seem a lot more developed this time around. Each has his or her own unique personality and techniques, giving players a chance to find one they "click" with during workouts. Oddly though, most of the tickets earned are used to buy cosmetic options for these trainers as opposed to the player. While you might be the one putting in all the work, it's the instructor that reaps those cool cosmetic rewards.

In terms of gameplay, Fitness Boxing 2 feels more responsive than the first game. It still takes getting used to holding the Joy-Con controls while swinging with the right combination of angle and speed to register the moves correctly. But once you find your groove, each routine becomes a fluid combination of choreographed motion guaranteed to work up a sweat. And if you need a little extra motivation to stay committed to a regular exercise regiment, the game even includes an alarm function that will remind you when it's time for your next scheduled routine even if the Switch is in Sleep Mode. Whether you're trying to get in a quick session in the morning before heading out to work or school or you're committing to an endurance fueled marathon session, you always feel like you've put the hard work and earned your progress. And that's the best things about the Fitness Boxing 2 experience. It works with players in so many ways to give them a custom fitness program, catered to their skill level and personal goals.
