Best exercise games for PS, Xbox, Wii, Switch, Sega for complete workout

Keeping fit when you have a busy schedule is difficult to accomplish when exercise is seen as a task. The trick is to make your relaxation time serve three purposes – relaxing, having fun and exercising. Playing exercise games in front your television covers all three and is exactly what you need to do. You get the opportunity to play, laugh and compete with family and friends while dancing, boxing, batting, kicking and stretching to give your body the complete workout it deserves.

Gamers will be familiar with the different consoles and accessories available to play exercise games and may already have their preferred choice. If you are new to the gaming world, this article features several game consoles, accessories and popular exercise games to play on them.

Check out Sony PlayStation 3, 4 and 5, Microsoft Xbox One and X/S, Nintendo Switch and Wii, and Genesis Sega. The last console was included in this guide for fans of retro games and since Sega has a popular exercise game from 1993, it might interest you.
