Some quick background info, I'm a 29-year-old female law student. I spend approx 93% of my time studying. The other 7% is split between eating and sleeping, so there isn't a whole lot of time for me to suit up and head to a gym. Sure, there's a gym in my apartment's basement, as well as on my school's campus (also in the basement) but what would I do? hit the treadmill for 35mins? Sure, I could do that and probably to my benefit. Would be good cardio. But I don't do that either. Why? I just don't wanna. /shrug.
I played Ring Fit Adventure for about an hour yesterday (probably closer to 40 mins of total gameplay) and let me just say - I'm SORE today. My arms and shoulders FEEL like they had a good workout. And the crazy bit is... I can't wait to do it again!! Literally about to pop on my leggings right now and go for round two (though I'll probably try to focus a bit more on my core and legs) but what's nice is I *CAN* do that! The variety in this game is nuts. I never played Wii Fit (or owned a Wii) but I heard it was just "ok" and didn't *really* give you a workout. Mostly yoga poses and maybe some core work. Here, you have TONS of options to choose from, and what's great is each exercise tells you exactly what part of your body it's targeting, and gives you proper form and posture. It's up to you to do the moves correctly, but honestly, if you're trying your best to match Tipp (your posture guide - how cute!) you're probably gonna be fine.
Before you even start playing, the game guides you through a really clear set-up and calibration process. The calibration is key because it, along with inputting your weight and fitness level, will help the game adjust to your needs. But don't worry about messing up because you can recalibrate whenever you want. It's honestly pretty cool. The game starts you off with only a handful of moves, expanding as you level up (and each move has a "recharge" time so you can't just keep spamming the ones that you like/are good at). But you can access ANY of the moves by going into "quick play" or "custom" if you just want a quick workout and don't want to go into the game. Every set you start (whether it's a level or world in the game or your own selection) will tell you how long (approximately) it should take, and the calories you should expect to burn. Every time you complete a workout you can hold your thumb over the IR sensor in the right joycon and it will take a measure of your heart rate, letting you know if you're in the right zone for fitness. I checked this reading against my Apple Watch, and it seemed fairly accurate.
You don't actually even need to turn on the game to get in a bit of a workout. If your Switch is in sleep mode and you click in the joystick, the game will register every time you flex the RingCon. So you can be passively pacing around your house, squeezing the RingCon (with /really/ satisfying auditory feedback, might I add) and be racking up points in the game! I'm not sure I've ever called a game or game accessory "genius" but holy cow... it's genius.
The RingCon is STURDY and well-made, and feels GREAT in the hand. The grips are made of this beautiful sweat soaking material (so you never feel like your palms are gross and sweaty) that you can remove and wash, and the ring itself is made out of a really nice soft, velvety feeling plastic. And honestly, the resistance is perfect. Yes, I'm an out-of-shape law student, but really, do enough reps and you're going to be feeling it too. They started me at level 10 based on the calibration and information I gave them. That doesn't necessarily mean 10 reps for every move though, and I haven't quite figured out the difficulty leveling system yet (is 10 just the maximum they'll give me? still playing around with that) but I've seen video reviews online of pretty fit men playing the game and it set them at say, level 30. This isn't your in-game level, just your personal difficulty level. You'll always start the game at level 1.
Now, who is this game for? Well, as I said, I'm an almost-30-year-old-law-student, and I'm loving it. However, someone with more /refined/ or /mature/ tastes may find the game a little cringey/cutesy (I'm referring only to "Adventure" mode). I've seen reviews that say the game isn't sure if it's targeting kids or adults, but IMHO, anybody can play this game and feel like it's "for" them. Some people may find Ring's voice annoying but I find it motivating, so you'll have to decide that for yourself. What I will say is, if you already own a Switch, and game on it, you'll probably be fine with it. Adventure mode is cute and endearing, and the villain Drageaux is hilarious.
This review has gone on far too long at this point, so congratulations if you've read this far. But if you're like me, and have zero motivation to exercise, but WANT to make a lifestyle change, I feel like this might be it. Will I be able to keep this up on a regular or semi-regular basis? I don't know. I hope so! Will I get bored of it? I really hope not. But for now, all I know is I really enjoyed my time with it yesterday, and am ready to get back into it today. 5/5 Stars.
The workouts provided so far have been general aerobics with plenty of core exercises and light resistance training thanks to that fascinating squeezeable ring known as the Ring-con and the leg band making use of the Joy-con’s gyro controls. The work outs get my heart rate up (the joy con tells me it goes up to the 140s). I’ve stretched muscles. I feel good after playing a session. Light but meaningful gains.
The game executes what it needs to well with adventure mode enveloping the exercises in more curious trips and battles. It takes it exercises seriously promoting pre-stretch and post-stretch that varies depending on the exercises you did during your session (big props to that concept). Add to it a really colorful world and motivational tips and educational elements, and it’s a great meaningful session each time I boot the game. Really great design.
I expect Tipp, Dragaux (sp?), or the Ring Con character to be a Smash Brother character in the future.
I then did the treadmill mini game, and that was a lot of fun. My cat simply watched me as I ran in place trying to align myself with the coins coming my way.
After an extensive run and a good workout, I loaded the Adventure, did the tutorial, watched the introduction vid, and completed the first course. All I can say is wow, this is really dynamic, exciting, fun, and very good exercise, though it's so easy to adjust to any fitness level, that the workout intensity is truly in the users hands.
I'm blown away that so much exercise potential could be housed in such a small box. The ring is really good quality, and very easy to get use to. My hands took to it with ease. I will say the leg strap will take some getting use to, as you really need that balance of tight enough so it won't run down your leg, and yet not so tight it will restrict blood-flow!
Overall, this has amazing potential, but the RingFit is like any exercise equipment, you need to use it and stick with it in order for it to do you any good, and for me the software certainly makes me want to keep coming back for more, and I also love you can use it even when your Switch is off, though I haven't had a chance yet to test this, I'm sure it will be a very handy feature.
Great product, great software, and I feel this gem is yet another fantastic reason for me to love my Nintendo Switch!!!

I plan on using it again just like I planned on going to the gym about 2 years ago. Except this is a physical thing in my apartment that stares at me and taunts me as I sit on the couch covered in crumbs. I put my coffee table in front of it so I don’t have to look at it any more.
The story is cool and the world is beautifully designed. The bad guy at the beginning of the story is also beautifully designed (if ya know what I mean).
It’s got a good sense of humour and will give you an actual workout. I am sad.
I have been unable to walk for more than 5 minutes without triggering vertigo. It has been hard to motivate myself to push my limits and get out and walk in the cold gloomy weather we've been having lately with the worry of getting myself home once I feel cruddy.
You can customize your fitness levels easily on this. I started everything on the lowest settings it would let me, as my goal at the moment is to increase my walking stamina and improve nerve communication between my eyes and feet for balance. (More complicated than most of you care about but this is my life, these days). I completed the first 2 worlds on my first go. Fast walked, with strength and resistance exercises, I covered more than 3km. I sweat. I needed to rehydrate.
I got dizzy. And kept going. I started to get sore. And kept going. I only stopped because I know I did way too much my first try. It's the most exercise I've done in over a year. And... It's taking every ounce of restraint I have to not pick it up and play some more. It's fun. I want to know what happens next. I'm really looking forward to rebuilding my strength and health and feel this is the perfect tool.
For those of you looking for a serious work out - buy it. Casual work out - buy it. It will be what you make it.
As an RPG, I suspect it will get old but I'm hoping everyone hops on and Nintendo does a stronger story/game line with the next version.
This will definitely keep me going until then. Maybe, just maybe Nintendo will make the controllers compatible with many games. I would love to play every game in this mode.
So, I start the game up, go through the initial calibrations carefully, tell the game that I work out "sometimes" (I cycle to work) and decided I wanted an "Intense" workout (the second-hardest difficulty of four presets). One intro movie later, and I was off on my adventure, running in place to advance through the level and squeezing/stretching the ring to blow gusts of air/suck in coins. Not too shabby, but pretty basic.
On to level two. After some jogging, I come face-to-face with the first enemy in the game. Switching to battle mode, I was given the option to select between four default exercises to attack this beast with (there are about 40 in the game which can all be accessed in Quick Play; in Adventure, they are unlocked through progress). I'm pretty comfortable with squats, so I selected "Squats" and mentally prepared to fire off a couple in order to take this critter down.
Immediately after my selection a number 30 appeared on the screen. 30. My opening salvo consisted of 30 squats, the first half of which I was required to hold for an extra beat before standing back up. Feeling a little tired and decide to cheat by doing a half-squat? Your attack does half damage. Straighten your legs too soon? The squat doesn't count! Yikes! One ab-guard (compressing the ring against my abdomen to block an attack) and several overhead ring squeezes later, I vanquished the FIRST ENEMY IN THE GAME and was able to advance.
Needless to say there were more enemies to destroy with my body's raw power, and more jogging to do. And high-knees to climb stairs. If jogging in place is a no-go, there's an option to do mini-squats instead to move. And - very importantly - you can adjust the difficulty whenever you want, resulting in less movements needed to destroy your enemies. Or more, if you're so inclined.
Ring Fit Adventure has surprised me. Well done, lads. Well done.
La caja incluye el aro, el strap para la pierna y el juego.
