Yesterday I picked up a copy of Ring Fit Adventure - I had wanted to get one sooner but everywhere seemed to be sold out after Christmas - as a way of getting back into a regular fitness routine that wasn't as intense as joining a crossfit group or signing up to an entire year of gym membership. I've been a sporadic member of a gym for a few years but that was predominantly as a social thing rather than a result of having any real enthusiasm for being healthy or strong, and as I've just moved to a new city/country I felt the need to find something I could do independently.
Before I bought the game I did a little research on whether it would actually work as a well rounded substitute for other forms of exercise. Has anyone actually lost weight by committing to the Ring Fit Adventure consistently over a number of days? There's plenty of videos of fitness trainers trying it out on youtube, but very few ongoing reviews where people share their experiences with the game over time, and that's what I was interested in. How do you feel after playing every day for a week? How about after a month? Has it changed any other aspects of your life, such as the way you eat or sleep? Do you find it too easy, or difficult, or too focused on specific muscle groups?
As I've just bought the game myself I'm undoubtedly going to find out the answers to those questions in my own time, but I wanted to open up a discussion for people to share their ongoing impressions, as well as any related health/fitness tips and tricks. One of the best ways to stay motivated is to see the progress other people are making, so feel free to share!
