Cannot get total number of checked boxes to work

I have tried every formula i could find here, but i cannot get it to count how many checkboxes are checked in a column. The checkboxes are in Column "Check" and go from row 1-99" i am putting the formula in row 100 (so directly below the checkboxes).

Here is the formula i have narrowed it down to, but still doesnt work:

=COUNTIFS(Check1:Check99, =1)+

have also tried:

=COUNTIFS(Check:Check, =1)+

I know the issue is because i am using the formula in the checkbox column, but i thought the + should allow the formula? I have it set so i can use text in the checkbox column as well.
