Working On My Fitness – First Impressions of Ring Fit Adventure

Exercise for the sake of living a healthy lifestyle or getting jacked has never been a strong enough motivator for me to do it. Many forms of exercise aren’t fun in and of themselves.

For example, I never could find the motivation to run for the sake of running, but I’ll hightail it in a game of basketball.

That philosophical difference between running and playing basketball is largely the same thing that separates Wii Fit and Ring Fit Adventure.

Give me a basketball and a hoop though, and I will play till my body gives out. Or give me a smartphone with Pokemon Go, and I will walk more than I normally would. To-date, my in-game tracker says that I’ve walked 4,600+km since the game launched in 2016.

Wii Fit sort of tried to gamify the act of exercise through mini games. However, I bounced off of it quickly because it felt more like an exercise tool than a game or activity. Ring Fit Adventure – Nintendo’s latest entry into exercise games – looks to take the gamification of fitness to the next level.
