Ultimately, the only thing that really matters here is determining whether or not Knockout Home Fitness is effective. As is the case with almost every other exercise game, it is. If you stick with it and get those daily stamps, you should be able to notice it making a difference whether you’re working out for 15 minutes a day or an hour. It’s certainly made a difference in my life, but I want to stress this game is not here to hold your hand. It sets a quick pace and expects you to keep up. If you need an exercise game that is a bit more amicable to the beginnings of a fitness journey, you may want to look elsewhere.

Knockout Home Fitness doesn't do anything inherently wrong with the selection of short fitness routines it offers, but it fails to support its bare-minimum motion tracking with any extra notable features or gamification to differentiate it from fitness DVDs or YouTube videos. Ring Fit Adventure has blown the fitness genre open on Switch, and with various other alternatives available, Knockout Home Fitness feels a little too limited, old-fashioned, and outclassed by the competition.

Knockout Home Fitness is perhaps not the best fitness game on the market but makes for a decent starting point for those wanting a bite size workout at home.

Knockout Home Fitness is a nice way to keep in shape and the focus on boxing moves does make it stand out from other fitness games I’ve played on the Nintendo Switch recently. When you land those punches in time with the beat it feels really good, but it can be equally infuriating when it incorrectly loses track of the Joycons. It’s a decent game, but it really lacks more unlockables to keep you motivated to play beyond the first few weeks.

With the judges having reached their final decision, it would seem that Knockout Home Fitness doesn't quite live up to its name. It ends up being more of a split decision. If you're looking for a fitness game focused on boxing, it's worth going a few rounds with this one, but otherwise you might be better off with another trainer.

There’s nothing quite like wiping sweat off the floorboards in your living room after a thorough workout, and Knockout Home Fitness manages to deliver high-octane thrills with its intense exercise routines. However, an unintuitive user interface with no customisation options, a lack of substantial unlockable content, and imprecision in its motion controls hamper the experience for players seriously committed to getting fit.

In general, Knockout Home Fitness is a handy exercise game for the Switch and fills a niche. It isn’t as intensive or potentially lengthy as, say, something like Ring Fit Adventure. Rather, it invites someone to show up every day for a few minutes to be active.

Knockout Home Fitness is a game that combines exercises from different disciplines in which it allows us to exercise from home with just 20 minutes a day, so it is highly recommended for those who have little time to exercise.

With Knockout Home Fitness you won't learn to fight or get rocky, but it is a great and healthy alternative for daily exercise to keep your joints and muscles in good shape.
