Our updated list of the top 25 best VR fitness games 2019 will help you have fun while you sweat off the pounds!

A lot has changed since VR Fitness Insider published our list of the top 15 VR fitness games for a total body workout early last year. While all of those titles are still a great way to get in shape while playing games in virtual reality, we’ve seen nearly two years worth of great VR fitness games since then and the release of new hardware like the cord-free Oculus Quest.

Developed by rhythm game specialists Harmonix, Audica blends music and first-person shooting together. Featuring a soundtrack filled with 33 fun songs, players alternate between using blue and orange guns to shoot targets of the same color. Of course, you’ll have to do so while also to the beat of the music. The real workout comes from playing on the expert difficulty, as it provides quite the intense experience. It’s a fantastic arm workout and a great time in VR, and custom beat map modding means that there’s no shortage of replay value.

Audica is available on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Windows Mixed Reality, and PlayStation VR. It is coming soon to Oculus Quest, and has a fitness rating comparable to walking by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise.

There are a lot of great dancing games in VR, and Audio Trip is one of the best of them. This fast-paced rhythm game has players moving their entire bodies in order to dodge barriers, hit drums, catch gems and ride ribbons. Making this workout even better is the great song selection, which includes high-profile artists such as  dubstep icons Skrillex & Deadmau5, Lady Gaga, and Zedd.

Beat Saber

While Beat Saber probably doesn’t need an introduction as it has become one of VR’s most popular titles, we’ll still give it one for our best VR fitness games 2019 list. Beat Games’ fantastic rhythm title has the player using two katana beams to slice beats in specific directions and dodge oncoming walls. It’s a complete blast even though the song list isn’t filled with hits. Although there is an Imagine Dragons DLC pack if you’re into the rock group (we won’t judge).

Beat Saber is available on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Oculus Quest, Windows Mixed Reality, and PlayStation VR. It has a fitness rating comparable to tennis by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise and was awarded our VR Fitness Game of the Year in 2018.

While not a title one might traditionally think of when thinking about the best VR fitness games 2019, Blade and Sorcery is a workout favorite for many gamers. As one can expect from its arena fighting motif, this is quite the intense title as players swing and throw all sorts of weapons at their opponents. It is primarily an arm workout it doesn’t require any squatting, but those with room can jump and attack from different angles. Ultimately, the WarpFrog-developed title is a great blend of traditional gaming and fitness.

Blade and Sorcery is available on Valve Index, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality.

BoxVR

Bringing together Echo Arena and Echo Combat, Echo VR is a must-download for Oculus owners. Echo Combat is all about moving through a zero-gravity field while shooting opponents and cooperating with your three teammates to achieve objectives. Meanwhile, Echo Arena is a more esports-centric competitive mode as players use melee abilities glide around and score goals. Both modes are a lot of fun to play, and are two of the most fun multiplayer experiences in VR. Oh, and the best part? It’s free, so Oculus owners have no reason not to check it out.

Echo VR is available now on Oculus Rift and is coming soon to Oculus Quest. It was awarded our Best VR Competitive Fitness Game of the Year in 2018.

Holopoint

Holopoint has been a VR mainstay, but its sequel launched with a number of issues including long load times and some annoying bugs. Thankfully, patches have made it realize more of its true potential. The archery title has players taking out waves of ninjas and samurai. Players will have to regularly squat in order to dodge beams, and it’s a solid shoulder workout as well.

As one can safely assume from the title, Hot Squat is a great leg workout. This is one to bust out on leg day, as it’s all about challenging yourself to do as many squats as possible. The fun gameplay helps add some much-needed motivation to keep feeling the burn. If you want to burn calories then you can’t do any better than this.

Knockout League

While not nearly as intense as Creed, Knockout League still provides a solid workout. The arcade-style boxing game is totally ridiculous as you face off against a boxing octopus and other foes. There’s also some great mini-games included, so this winds up being an excellent way to burn some calories while also having a fun time. It’s essentially Punch-Out! in virtual reality, and that’s a good thing. Plus, the in-game training alley is perfect for getting a good workout in.

OhShape

The concept of OhShape isn’t anything new, but it’s the most enjoyable shape-matching titles in VR. The rhythm game has players matching full body shapes while also punching and dodging walls. It’s very similar to the Hole in the Wall game that released for Xbox 360 Kinect earlier this decade, but much more fun. Even if you don’t have a ton of room

OhShape is available now on HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and Windows Mixed Reality. It is coming soon to PlayStation VR and Oculus Quest.

Pistol Whip

Another fun first-person shooter, Pistol Whip has players doing their best John Wick impersonation. Players make their way through awesome action scenes that are like over-the-top action movies and have to figure out a way to deal with all of the foes. Interestingly, despite having music for each level, there’s no set beat that players have to battle on. It’s a fantastic leg workout, mostly because once you start playing you won’t want to stop. It’s one of the most addictive experience in VR, and you will definitely get the most bang for your buck here.

While there are a lot of boxing games in VR, but Soundboxing has an unparalleled selection of music as it uses YouTube videos. It’s a highly satisfying punching game, and the leaderboards will make sure that players have a good reason for continuing to play. This is a great alternative to a lot of the other boxing VR titles, especially if you want to jam to your own music rather than included tracks.

One of the best Oculus exclusives, Sports Scramble is a wacky sports mash-up that has players competing in familiar sports with a twist. For example, you’ll play tennis using a golf club, and attempt to hit home runs with a hockey stick. It’s completely ridiculous, and a great solo or multiplayer title. It’s not the most intense workout out there, but it’s one of the most enjoyable and replayable ones.

Sprint Vector

Despite being about sprinting, Sprint Vector isn’t actually a great leg workout. However, you’ll be using your arms to move quickly it requires quite a bit of core and balance coordination.

This first-person shooter is a blast as players dodge bullets and take out enemies with a twist: they only move when you move. It’s just as brilliant as the regular console version, but even more immersive thanks to your headset of choice. It’s not just one of the best fitness VR games 2019, but one of the best titles period.
