It's time to get moving! In Fitness Boxing, you can participate in boxing-based workouts while bopping along to instrumental versions of some popular music hits!.

If I miss a morning and get home in the evening there would normally be a 0% chance of dragging my ass to the gym. But for some reason this game has made my body in sync w my brain in both wanting to get some cardio in. And I'll be DRIPPING afterwards. Surprisingly sore in some parts too!
I actually tried to find a way to completely disable scoring as a way to partially redeem the game, but there is no such option. Granted, that would make it a glorified exercise video, but that would be a huge improvement, because as it is now it's just extraordinarily frustrating to throw the punch perfectly on the beat and it says you were early, almost every single time.
It very similar to a beat game where there is music and you push buttons along with the beat, with icons sliding across the screen into an indicator slot of when you should perform an action.
Overall it feels like a game created with the better aspects of wii fitness.

I used to love Wii Fit and Dance mat games in the past, so I was all for a game like this to come to Switch. After close to 100 hours invested this year. I can honestly say it's a great asset to have if you prefer to work out at home instead of going to gyms etc.
On a good week, I try to play this at least 3 times a week, for about 30-40 minutes a time. There is never not a time I don't stop playing having worked up a sweat. The first few weeks of playing will have you aching in places you didn't know could ache too (but in a "you're doing a great job" kind of way).
I could feel my general balance/ core strength was improved after a week or so, and my arms and shoulders were improved too. All in all this does a LOT more for your body per session than Wii Fit would in a time comparison.
The music choices can be cheesy, but it's easy to keep shuffling the choices or alienate anything you hate in the options. It's really all background noise when you're in the zone though, so don't let the song choices be a decider in buying this.
One negative is that occasionally the game (or the joy-cons) might misread what you did, or not read you at all. Which can be annoying, but you just have to remind yourself that you're not doing wrong, you did what it asked. The more you play the more you learn what the game is looking for and the less you'll run into that.
Highly recommended for fans of fitness games and/ or rhythm games. Or those just looking for new ways to work out at home.
Movement detection is good, though it may not feel great at first. The more accurate your movements are, the better it works, I promise. You can work up a sweat, so some gloves to protect your JoyCons and a towel are recommended. The music is genericised instrumental covers, so if you're worried about the track list, don't be, all they provide is tempo.
Coming back to increase your streak, having your trainer encourage you, unlocking gear to customise your trainer, and seeing how much you numbers improve over time in the graphs is a great motivator, at least for me. With a free update, you can take screenshots, so you can grab pics of your results screens and share them.
Obviously training with this isn't a substitute for heavy bag training or sparring, but for coordination, cardio, and just ease of use, it's a solid tool for the price
Only downside is the choice of songs are pretty cheesy.
