If games like Dance Dance Revolution and Just Dance have taught us anything it's that putting a little pep in your step always leads to a good time. Whether you're looking to punch your way to fitness playing Creed: Rise to Glory or burn through calories with Beat Saber, you can find a game that'll help you break a sweat in VR.

- RUUUUUUUUUN: Sprint Vector
- Punch drunk: Knockout League
- Future pong: Sparc
- Rumble in the yard!: Rec Room
I spent two weeks playing Beat Saber for one hour every weekday and ended up losing about 15 pounds. If you give this game 110% it will reward you with weight loss and good feels. Plus, it's so much fun you'll forget how good it is for you.
Sprint Vector has you racing against your friends to see who can make it across the finish line first. It really is a race too. You'll feel like you are rollerblading on the spot as you swing your arms and feel the burn!
Creed is awesome but can be a little serious. If you a looking for a good workout that's a little more fun, try Knockout League. You get to fight an octopus in boxing gloves. It's awesome.
Sparc is one of my favorite VR games and the first one to really give me a workout. The game requires you to throw an energy ball against an opponent while dodging his attacks. It's intense and can get exhausting over long gameplay sessions. It's well worth having in your library.
Feel the Pump
There have been plenty of games released over the years that encourage you to get moving. Dance Dance Revolution is an obvious choice, but there's also Wii Fit and plenty of other attempts that utilized motion controllers. VR is a great way to intwine fitness and video games in 2019. Games like Sparc will help you work up a sweat, and if you do them for a sustained period — say 30 minutes or more — will help you lose weight are just get more fit.
For the most energetic and calorie burning game though, you really need to get Creed: Rise to Glory. The energy and focus the game requires is immense as and as Russell Holly says in his review, it will make your body hurt, but you'll love it.
