As the name suggests, this is a boxing-based game, but with the added punch of popular beats. Rhythmic exercises are set to the instrumental beats of songs by popular artists. You can personalise your workouts by selecting from different fitness goals.

With 20 unlockable hit songs, the moves are pretty simple: punch and squat while gripping the Joy-Con controllers. Daily training ranges from 10 to 40 minutes and offers both Normal and Fast mode. The game software estimates your approximate BMI and daily calories burned so you can track your progress. Two players can enjoy working out cooperatively, as well as facing off against each other in a virtual ring.
