Sweat & Swing
Racket: Nx – $20
Racket ball-meets-Breakout-meets-multiplayer madness in Racket: Nx. It’s a good thing Quest doesn’t have any cables, because you’ll need the full 360 space to thwack your ball at speed to get those oh so satisfying chain combos. Wear the wrist strap and make sure nothing (and nobody) is in striking distance. You’ll thank us later.
Creed: Rise to Glory – $30
Punch your way to glory in this boxing sim which pits you against AI fighters in both single-player campaign mode or free play. If you find it too easy after a few hours of beating up on AI, online PvP should put you back in your corner. You can try it before you buy it too thanks to the Oculus Store demo. Awesome cardio and an arm workout.
FitXR – $30
FitXR (ex-BoxVR) is a virtual fitness studio that brings the energy of group fitness classes to your home. You can box or dance away the day as you burn calories. Make sure to get an extra face pad for easy cleanup!
Supernatural – $19 per month, $15 if billed annually
Supernatural isn’t for everybody since it has a hefty $19/$15 per month subscription fee, but you’d be hard-pressed to find another app with the level of attention to detail, expert instruction, and fun as you would with this at-home workout game. Like Beat Saber, you slash incoming objects to the beat, but it does you one further by honing in on muscle groups and amping up cardio. It’s free for 30 days, so it may just fit into your locked-down lifestyle.
