10 Best Meta Quest 2 Fitness Games to Exercise and Workout 2022

Is VR Meta Quest 2 weight loss a thing?  YES!

Let’s get to the Best Meta Quest 2 Fitness Games to Exercise and Workout in 2022.

The great thing about Meta 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 Meta fitness games are better than others and not all VR exercise games are created equal.

We’ve reviewed many Quest 2 Exercise Games so you can save time and money and keep up with your fitness goals.

Scoring Criteria For VR Meta Quest 2 Fitness Games

As we reviewed these games we focused on a few key differences between them.  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 the criteria and decide which things are more important for your workout. You might not care about things like multiplayer or amount of songs for example. Of course, whichever games get you up and moving are the best VR Fitness Games for you, so you may have to try a few different types out to see what you like.

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. We wrote this article from the countless people we 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, We’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, we gave it more points in this review. A game and “fun-like” are more likely to make you stick with the workout in our 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 we gave. DLC is an option? OK, but the more content that is included in the base game we gave the higher score. If there are no classes or songs, how many levels or skill levels are there to play?

Does the game have the ability to have custom songs?

customsongs - 10 Best Meta Quest 2 Fitness Games to Exercise and Workout 2022
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 are 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.

Synth Riders

SynthRidersReview - 10 Best Meta Quest 2 Fitness Games to Exercise and Workout 2022

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game

✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes
✔️ Party Mode – Yes
Other Issues – N/A

Beat SaberBeat Saber Review

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

🏋️ Workout Equal to –  Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 12 squats/hrTennis VR Fitness

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Song/WorkOuts 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

Until You FallUntil You Fall Review

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

Tennis VR Fitness🏋️ Workout Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 27 squats/hr

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Levels – 3 Difficulty 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 doing 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 that isn’t a dancing rhythm game, this is it.

Until You Fall Total Score – 4.5 points

RagnaRock VR

Ragnarock VR Review

Ragnarock VR is a rhythm VR game. It lets you take the head of a Viking ship. Notes float towards you in a Guitar Hero style and when they go over the drums you hit them.

Tennis VR Fitness🏋️ Workout Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 12 squats/hr

✔️ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Game
✔️ Number of Song/Work Outs Included – 30 Songs
✔️ Custom Songs – Yes – 3rd party website, drag and drop to device
✔️ Multiplayer Mode – Yes

Other Issues – N/A

If you enjoy VR fitness rhythm games Ragnarock brings a new and fun version to the table. The unique heavy metal music style will not be for everyone, nor the rather expensive price tag. Time will fly by while playing. It will be a welcome VR workout addition for many.

Audio TripAudioTrip Review

 

Audio Trip is a VR rhythm and dance game where you catch gems, glide along with ribbons, hit drums, and dodge blocks. Even with no dancing skill, if you stick with this for a while you will feel like you are dancing which can be quite fun.

Tennis VR Fitness🏋️ Workout Equal to – Tennis – 360 – 480 kcal/hr – 56 squats/hr

Audio Trip is lacking in songs compared 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.

Dance Central VR Review

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.

Eleven Table TennisEleven Table Tennis Review

Eleven Table Tennis is virtual ping pong at its finest! Pro Table Tennis players use Eleven Table Tennis for practice because it is THAT realistic, accurate, and good.

Tennis VR Fitness🏋️ Workout 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 to your mix with a high workout potential.

FitXR

FITXR Cover Landscape 2560x1440 v3 1024x576 1 - 10 Best Meta Quest 2 Fitness Games to Exercise and Workout 2022

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

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

❌ Feels like a Game or a Workout – Workout
✔️ Number of Song/WorkOuts 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 to exercise 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.
