Top 10 Ultimate Oculus Quest 2 Fitness Games for VR

Is Oculus Quest 2 weight loss a thing?  YES!

The great thing about the Oculus Quest 2, and VR in general, is that almost every game you play requires you to move your arms, hands, and feet. So pretty much ANY game you play in VR will cause you to burn more calories than traditional video games or watching TV.

Some Oculus fitness games are better than others and not all VR exercise games are created equal.  I’ve reviewed many Oculus Quest 2 Fitness Games so you can save time and money and keep up with your fitness goals.

Scoring Criteria For VR Oculus Quest 2 Fitness Games

As I reviewed these games I focused on a few key differences between them. These are the various questions I asked myself when ranking these games. If they had all the parts, they got a higher score, if they were missing some, that game’s score was decreased. You can go through my criteria and decide which things are more important for your workout. Of course, whichever games get YOU up and moving are the best Oculus Quest 2 Fitness Games for you!

Does it feel like you are working out or a game?

Depending on your level of fitness this may be a stronger point for you or a weaker one. I wrote this article from the countless people I see online saying that they played Beat Saber for the first time and were super surprised to see sweat while playing “a game”.  If you are looking for the hardest workout, I’ve included the numbers so you can focus on those games. If you are looking for a fun game that can ALSO get you sweating, I personally gave it more points in this review. A game and fun-like are more likely to make you stick with it in my opinion.

How many classes or songs or levels are included?

Working out to the same 5 songs every day is not going to cut it for most people. The more songs or classes, the higher the ranking I gave. DLC is an option? Ok but more included in the base game I gave a higher score. If no classes or songs, how many levels or skill levels are there to play?

Does the game have the ability to have custom songs?

Can you add custom songs to the game? How hard is it to do so? Although most of these games use royalty-free music that you probably don’t know, some are quite catchy! But nothing is going to get your heart pumping like your favorite workout song.  More points for custom songs being allowed.

Does the game have Multiplayer or Party mode?

Although working out solo is fine and fun, being able to invite your Oculus Quest 2 online friends, (or random strangers) or playing against other people in your household with a back and forth “party mode” is a great way to keep motivated in your fitness journey.

Other Issues, or technical problems

Without any more delay… Here is the list

Top 10 VR Fitness Game for Oculus Quest 2

1 ) Synth Riders

Full Review here –  https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/synth-riders-review/

Synth Riders is a part freestyle dance game, and part boxing, rhythm game.

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 40 squats/hr

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 52 Songs
✔️ Custom Songs – Yes – 3rd party website, drag and drop to device
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
✔️ Party Mode – Yes
Other Issues – N/A

Synthriders. This VR fitness game really has it all. 52 included songs will keep you interested and playing. Multiplayer, Party mode, AND the ability to add custom songs? Well worth it.

Total Score – 5 points

2) Beat Saber

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/beat-saber-review-number-1-vr-rhythm-game/

Beat Saber is a VR rhythm game where you slash cubes as they float towards you in time to the music.

🏋️ Work out Equal to –  Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 12 squats/hr

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 36 songs
✔️ Custom Songs – Yes, but has to be illegally modded (Beat saber doesn’t allow this and will remind you, you are using a modded version). Difficult for many and multiplayer/ leaderboards won’t work anymore.
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
✔️ Party Mode – Yes
Other Issues – N/A

Beat Saber is the most popular VR game for a reason. Lots of included songs and fun gameplay. Many feel they need to “get a better workout” from something besides Beat Saber, but it actually ranks pretty high on the calories list, less so on squats. It’s too bad it requires modding to play custom songs and that’s why on MY list, it’s a number 2.

Beat Saber Total Score – 5 points

3) Until You Fall

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/until-you-fall-review/

Until You Fall is a VR sword fighting game that brings together hack and slash and RPG fun.

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 27 squats/hr

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Levels – 3 Difficultly Levels – 10 tiers per level – 30 Levels
❌ Custom Songs – Can’t change music
❌ Multiplayer Mode – No
❌ Party Mode – No
Other Issues – May cause motion sickness – use in-game settings to help.

Until you Fall is different than any other game on this list. It is truly a hack and slash, rogue-like video game. You play till you die, but you are physically getting a great workout while do it. Holding up a sword to block and slash enemies is great. If you don’t have motion sickness and are looking for a different way to get a workout in that isn’t a dancing rhythm game, this is it.

Until You Fall Total Score – 4.5 points

4) Racket: NX

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/racket-nx-review/

Racket: NX is a new kind of game that challenges the limits of what you can do with a racket and ball in VR.

❌ Party Mode – No
Other Issues – Bit of a learning curve when starting on how to hit properly

Racket: NX is one of those games where you don’t realize you are working out. It’s easy to lose track of time playing multiplayer and adding custom songs is a breeze.

Racket: NX Total Score – 4.5 points

5) Audio Trip

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/audio-trip-review/

Audio Trip is a VR rhythm and dance game where you catch gems, glide along with ribbons, hit drums, and dodge blocks.

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 56 squats/hr

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Both – Cardio mode especially feels like a workout
❌ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 18 Songs Including several you know
✔️ Custom Songs – Yes – Discord – drag and drop to device
❌ Multiplayer Mode – No
✔️ Party Mode – Yes
Other Issues – Small selection of Songs

Audio Trip is lacking in songs compare to the others. Be sure to add in some custom ones to keep things interesting! The cardio mode is perhaps one of the more intense workouts you can do in VR. If you are looking for a higher cardio workout… Cardio mode Audio Trip is it.

Audio Trip Total Score – 4 points

6) Sports Scramble

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/sports-scramble-review/

Take your favorite sports and mix them. That is the idea behind Sports Scramble.

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Elliptical – 240 – 360 kcal/hr – 11 squats/hr

✔️Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Levels – 3 types of sports (Baseball, Tennis, Bowling)
❌ Custom Songs – No
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
❌ Party Mode – No
Other Issues – Cartoon characters might be off-putting for some people, A lighter work out

This is a fun game to add some real sports gaming into your fitness mix. It’s on the lighter side of calories burned, so perhaps start or finish with some Sports Scramble to keep things interesting in your workouts.

Sports Scramble Total Score – 4 points

7) Oh Shape

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/ohshape-review/

Oh shape is a  unique fitness game in the VR space that has you moving your full body to match, punch or dodge walls as they float towards you.

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Tennis –  360 – 480 kcal/hr – 111 squats/hr

❌ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Workout
✔️ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 32 songs included, some you might be familiar with.
✔️ Custom Songs – Yes – 3rd party website and then drag and drop to device
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
✔️ Party Mode – Yes
Other Issues – Very difficult, No vibration feedback so you are not sure if you are hitting your targets or not.

You will probably need to turn on “no-fail” mode when you start. This will help you get used to the game while keeping your sweat going. This game is a serious workout and will burn more calories than a round of Supernatural for you.

Oh Shape Total Score – 4 points

8) Eleven Table Tennis

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/eleven-table-tennis-review-vr-ping-pong/

Eleven Table Tennis is virtual ping pong at its finest!

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 25 squats/hr

✔️Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Levels – beginner, advanced, pro
❌ Custom Songs – No
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
❌ Party Mode –  No
Other Issues – Repetitive music, Menus are hard to navigate

Eleven Table Tennis menu system is difficult to navigate. The developers spent a lot of time on the physics of the game and not the User Interface. It can also be hard to get a sweat going when first starting. Stick with it, and it’s a great fitness app to add into your mix with a high workout potential.

Eleven Table Tennis Total Score – 4 points

9) FitXR

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/fitxr-review/

FitXR is bursting with Box and Dance workouts that you’ll love. With a class for every mood, goal, and fitness level.

🏋️ Work out Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 73 squats/hr

❌ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Workout
✔️ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 36 classes/songs
❌ Custom Songs – No
❌ Multiplayer Mode – No
❌ Party Mode – No
Other Issues – Boxing did not track properly for me, Only 2 locations 2 workout in.

Although FitXR pitches “Feels like a game”, it sure felt like a fitness workout class to me. The lack of multiplayer and custom songs moves this down on the list for me. I hope these change in the future. Like Oh Shape, if you are looking for a Supernatural replacement… FitXR is a good choice.

FitXR Total Score – 3.5 points

10) Dance Central

Full Review here – https://www.worldofgeekstuff.com/dance-central-vr-review/

Dance Central VR is a fully immersive Dance Rhythm VR game. Dance Central VR transports you to the world of a nightclub, introduces you to some characters, and gets you dancing!

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 32
❌ Custom Songs – No but includes only popular music
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
❌ Party Mode – No
Other Issues – Campaign mode is a drag for some, dancing can be hard.

Dance central reaches heavily into the gaming side of things. Stick to one area and select songs rapidly to get a decent cardio workout while learning real hip-hop dance moves to get your sweat on in a fun way.

Dance Central Total Score – 3.5 points
