So you've decided to buy a VR headset with your Xmas money? So the next question is, what fitness games can I buy?

All the Virtual Reality fitness games below are all amazing tools that can help you get fit, lose weight, and tone up. There are a lot of ways to use VR to get in shape, whether you're looking for a full-body workout or just want to focus on specific muscles. In this article, we'll explore some of the best VR fitness games available today and explain how they can help you reach your fitness goals!

Beat Saber

Beat Saber is a VR game that puts you in the role of a Jedi, slashing blocky obstacles in time with music. To play it, you can download it from the Quest store.

You'll also need to be coordinated enough to slash the blocks that appear on screen with your lightsabers as they pass through them at various speeds and heights. The game measures how well you’re doing by comparing your performance against your fellow competitors on a leaderboard.  And you get to choose music packs, so whatever rocks your boat!

This is great for getting your heart rate up while toning muscles in both arms and to some extent your legs (since they will be moving around).

Overall we are a big fan of the "sabre'.

Thrill of the Fight

Thrill of the Fight is a boxing workout game that you can play against a friend or the game itself. "Enter a virtual gym and battle a series of unique challengers with their own styles and techniques. Use timing and skill to land the knockout blow. Evade swings, land jabs, and block punches to become the king of the ring!"


BoxVR is another boxing simulator that lets you choose different boxing styles and train in different environments. There are over 20 hours of works available with the addded beneift from being able (just like Beatsaber) to purchase music packs. You can track your progress, every workout is recorded so you can see how many calories you burnt. Set your goals and see your progress day by day.


Supernatural is a VR game that offers a variety of workouts. You can do everything from yoga and Pilates to boxing, meditation and more. It’s great for building muscle memory and learning new movements, which are two big reasons why people pick up fitness games in the first place.

Each activity has its own unique set of movements that can be performed standing up or sitting down; once you select an activity from the menu on the left side of your screen, just follow along with what’s being shown on-screen as it cycles through each move at its own pace—it goes fast so keep up! If something doesn't make sense at first glance just keep practicing until it does!

Fit XR

Fit XR is a 'virtual fitness club' that allows you to work out with your friends much like a multiplayer game. The game features a number of different workouts across boxing routines, dance and HiiT exercises. They also release a new workout every day to keep you on your toes! Track your progress on the colourful leaderboards so you can compete with your friends.
