I'm standing by to hear some testimony as to whether or not this actually helps people shed some pounds, or is it tamer like Wii Fit. Was thinking of buying an excersice bike but hell might as well have some fun while losing weight and get this instead, for a good deal cheaper too! XD
It definitely can help you lose weight; as Soundwave says, basically any sustained cardio exercise will make you lost weight if you keep it up. (And don't sabotage yourself by eating badly) But like all weight loss, the key is commitment from the individual. If you're willing to put the physical effort in, you will get results. :)
Well therein lies the problem for me first and foremost, definitely been eating/drinking bad lately heh. So definitely have to improve that above all else, but just wondering in terms of a good was to supplement that with real exercise, if Ring Fit would actually make me sweat and feel like a real workout. Based on a review I saw at Gameexplain it somewhat seems to be the case anyway, at least more than Wii Fit, which to me just rarely seemed to actually feel like a real workout unless I totally binged on the jogging and boxing, which sort of got repetitive and boring, thus ruining the point.
Mind you I had been used to hitting it pretty hard with one of those fan bikes with the moving arms and really breaking a sweat, so I'm used to heavy cardio activity. Ring Fit doesn't seem quite at that high-intensity level but it at least seems mid-range.
