Happens to me all the time.
you can change your difficulty anytime! when you start on a new day they'll ask if you'd like to adjust the level (you can make it easier/harder or say it's fine), and outside that if you go into the settings after loading your save you can set it to whatever number you'd like (1-30)
I had a rest day yesterday and wasn't really feeling it when I started up RFA, half wondering if I should have another rest day. Then once I got going I was enjoying it so much I ended up doing 40 mins which is double what I normally do.
it depends on the exercises you set (and certain minigames) but overall i would say you hold your arms up above your head relatively frequently, you'll definitely want to be careful if you have a low ceiling
Ho, ho, ho! I was just thinking last year (a few hours ago) that many of the posters ITT would probably wake up with a nasty hangover and not feel up to RFA!
That's good; the RPG side of things starts to gradually get a bit more interesting from that world on. Heh, I only played that for the first time about a month ago and am having fond, nostalgic memories of it!
I know what you mean but occasionally the game reminds me of them in subtle ways. It sometimes reminds me of Zelda too especially with the clothing/smoothies/ingredients husband and wife. I can only imagine that the devs who worked on RFA had dev experience on a wide range of different Nintendo software prior to this. Unless someone does a forensic examination of the end game credits (I assume there are some; I haven't got there yet) and that someone shall not be me, then guessing is probably as good as we are going to get. I would have loved an Iwata Asks for this game :(.
Apart from a quick go on a 'posture' set on easy early on with the game I haven't delved into the sets at all because I have been too addicted to the Adventure mode. I keep meaning to but y'know. Thus, I have not idea what 'Stamina set 90 challenge' is but it sounds intimidating! I'm glad you lived to post about it!
Ah, thanks. I am familiar with the scoring system as some of the requests are like that. I would have failed on the mountain climbers alone tbh. Even if I had to do 10 of them I would have still failed. The other exercises I probably could have survived but 40 to 50 of them? Not so sure about that! Mountain Climbers though can GTFO. That exercise is verboten in my household! It is evil and I will not permit such evil in this house!Stamina Set
Knee Lift Combo
Keep in mind that the Fitness sets will have more sets than your normal attack. I think mine were in the 40s-50s. In addition rather than a good/great system, a robot judges you on how you do on a 0-100 scale. The 90+ challenge means getting an average of 90+ points. It's not that hard so long as your joycons are working but they do force you to focus a touch more on form.
In those circumstances, I would probably re-start but that's because I know what I'm like. However, there's no real need for you to do so unless you feel that way too. The difficulty level can be adjusted at any time so you are not constrained in any way where that is concerned. You could pick it up where you left off and adjust the difficulty level mid-session if you find the difficulty level too much. The game is really well designed; it doesn't badger you to exercise or insist on you playing it a certain way. The easy alteration of the difficulty level/intensity at any time is just one example of that. Whatever you decide to do, enjoy! That's what it's about after all; exercising and enjoying doing so.
Definitely! You won't get 'swole' from playing this but your body will get stronger and more robust. That's been my experience anyway although I was coming from a very sedentary starting point so frankly doing anything would have helped. My posture is better, I am losing weight, everyday activities are getting easier, and so on. Also, it's a lot of fun! Enjoy and do let us know how you get on.
Cool thanks,I want to loose some weight,I work at Walmart in produce,meat,bakery and I walk and lift heavy stuff but I strain lifting the heavy products i just want more pep.cant wait to get it from bestbuy.Definitely!

Chose wisely, have you. RFA is pretty much a full-body workout that will improve your strength, stamina/endurance and flexibility and you'll have fun doing it. Anyone that wants to improve their fitness and sense of well being should give it a shot imho. The only people I wouldn't recommend it for are those who just want to be swole but then they are going to be lifting heavy weights for a long time while having to sort out their nutrition and sleep so have fun with that! Lifting weights is fine, I've done it myself but the idea that to get fit one has to go to the gym and lift weights is just testament to the amazing marketing job that the gym industry has pulled off. Exercise is exercise; the only right exercise is the one that the individual will stick to. Good job too in giving up soda; nutrition is a really significant part of getting fit.
some of the requests get super egregious, but for what it's worth at some point you unlock a smoothie that prevents enemies spawning on a map, so it makes requests like that one trivial if you don't want to (or don't like to, or can't) dodge the hard wayEdit 2: In general the requests haven't been too offensive but now they're starting to grate. One asks you to go through a course while dodging all enemies, and the combination of not being able to gauge distance due to the static camera and needing momentum in order to double-jump over them but being on-rails makes it harder than it needs to be. Not to mention I tend to engage every enemy on principle for more exercise. You might go for like 4 minutes of squats and ab twists and then get fucked in the last stretch by a pack of ghostly bois.
Nicely done on the first one. I tried that and failed and put it to one side to try again down the road when I can do the movements without thinking but that will require practice out of the Adventure mode so that they become second nature. I chose to do a short request in world 12 IIRC today which required me to jump over all the monsters and kept failing it so I just restarted. Got it done after about half a dozen or so attempts which was a relief. I did 60 minutes of RFA today which is 20 mins more than I have ever done before in one session but my energy level was good despite no sleep last night and a quick nap this afternoon so I'm pretty chuffed at that. I am now at world 13 though and I couldn't help but chuckle at how evil that is. Hopefully, I am not too stiff to tackle that properly tomorrow.Scoring 8000 in Core Crusher without hitting any shields for the exp set in world 10 is some grade-A bullshit. I can either go fast and get the score but hit shields due to the controls being too sensitive or go slow and steady and hit like 7000.
Edit: Aaaaaaand then I did it. I guess there is a rhythm to it but the motion sensing is still kinda finicky.

RFA's calories estimations are quite low because it only count activity calories (only when you are doing requested moves, not when resting nor between moves in a set) so it will always be lower than watches and other trackers.How do you guys recommend combining an AppleWatch or other fitness trackers with RFA?
I have started "Fitness Gaming" workouts so far, but calorie estimations between RFA and Watch are quite different. The AppleWatch seems to assume continued exercise when I'm not moving between sets, so I guess it overestimates. However it has access to heart rate readings, so might be more accurate here.
It doesn't seem to track when I'm not starting a "workout" (while it usually does auto-track during much lighter exercise like cycling..).
it depends on which exercises you set, but some require you to bend forward pretty far. that said, outside of specific combat exercises, i don't think anything else requires you to lean forward/back further than a couple inches.
You can manage alerts in the system settings.
I’m from the UK. Not even the official Nintendo store has any, lol
Ah yeah I've seen there are stock issues in Asia and Europe, I was wondering where else it was limited.
Yes, though it will take a long time to get a healing skill you can use and you won't be able to do some of the optional gyms.
I think you're talking about Mountain Climbers, I can't do them either. My yoga mat has just a little too much stick for me to do the movements it needs. I do very high knee lifts instead. Yeah it's faking it a little bit but at least it's still a workout and it the game will still read it like you're doing the Mountain Climber excercise, most of the time at leastI reached leg world and god that first course killed my legs so badly. Tried to do that challenge for that gym as well (in order to unlock the rest of the map), but the 4th leg skill where you have to move your thighs fast while in push up position was just too horrible for me, no thank you. It's the very first time I ended up faking an exercise, because my body can't handle doing it properly as of now (I can't do push ups). Maybe in the future though!
Can't wait for arm world, that'll be a breath in comparison, no more squats!
