Suppose an obstacle blocks your way and you have to jump over it to clear that obstacle, point the ring down, press it and release it in time to perform a jump. The game also allows you to shoot a burst of air to destroy crates as you run, which is done by pressing the ring and pointing it at your target. You can also collect coins by stretching out your ring. A variety of exercise enables attack mode, you have to hold squats for a few seconds following on-screen instructions for one attack move while another attacking move involved a yoga pose.
