3 best fitness games for the PS5

Turn your new PS5 or PSV2 into a fitness hub with these immersive, energizing games that get you off the couch.

Best non-VR fitness game for PS5: Just Dance, 2024 edition


If you don't have the PlayStation VR headset to go with your PS5, one of the best ways to get a workout is with the "Just Dance 2024" game. The popular game turns your smartphone into a motion controller that you hold while following the dance moves on your TV. You're rated based on how accurately you mimic each move, so it forces you to get active and really commit to the dance.

The 2024 edition features a new dance workout mode that includes high intensity routines for your favorite songs. It comes with over 40 new songs, including popular Disney hits as well as chart-toppers from a variety of genres ranging from rock and hip hop to Latin and K-Pop.

While it's a fun workout on its own, the multiplayer mode makes it even more fun by letting you dance with friends -- or challenge them to a dance competition.

New songs are added throughout the year to keep the game fresh and you can sign up for Just Dance+ to get access to over 300 songs and in-game events.

Get the game while it's on sale at Amazon for $48 (reduced from $60).

A fun game that happens to be a workout: Until You Fall


Until You Fall is a hack-and-slash sword-fighting game set in a neon fantasy world filled with monsters and spirits. You play as the last surviving Rune Knight fighting off these creatures using a series of magical weapons.

Combat requires sword swinging, squatting and dodging attacks so you can work up a sweat pretty quickly, especially when you're fighting off a horde of enemies. Because you're immersed in a magical fantasy world, it doesn't feel like you're grinding through a typical workout routine.

With three difficulty modes to start, you can adjust the workout intensity by playing the game on different modes. The monsters become faster at attacking and harder to defeat as you up the difficulty level, so it will require quicker reflexes and more vigorous sword swinging to take them down.

Once you beat the final boss in one of those difficulty modes, you unlock the nightmare difficulty level for an even more intense workout.
