Getting Fit as a Ring

As the smash hit descendant of the beloved Wii Fit, Ring Fit seemed destined to remake the world in a sexier image.
Yet despite all of our best intentions, none of us were playing by the time Christmas rolled around.

Confinement

Except for hospital visits, I’ve been confined to my apartment for over a month.

The Third Option

I chose Nintendo and fired up the TV, determined to continue my adventure and stop my muscles from going into atrophy.

The Bunker Life

Every day is a struggle that would remind one of life spent in a bunker. I get out of bed in the morning and make my way to my laptop to do my work.
After a few hours, I crawl back to bed and have a nap. After that, I ideally spend as long as possible on Ring Fit before helping myself to a big meal.
