Lake Mary, FL, May 24, 2019 –(PR.com)– Lake Mary kickboxing gym, Knockout Fitness, is excited to announce it’s exclusive partnership in Central Florida with Impact Wrap, a fully interactive, state-of-the-art platform designed to motivate members by “gamifying” heavy bag striking during kickboxing. Only at Knockout Fitness can members earn scores based upon the number of strikes and the degree of impact made on all 28 100lb. Pro-Style punching bags. This system provides quantified, real-time data to members and coaches about the effort/performance made during a class. Displaying this data on monitors throughout the class inspires both competition and camaraderie. Members may also review their performance of previous workouts to see their progression and track their efforts via the Impact Wrap app.
How It Works
The Impact Wrap works by tracking the force of every strike made on an Impact Wrapped bag. You get a point value based on how hard you hit. For example, if you hit lightly, you may get 31 points and then you hit harder and you get 67 points. The points keep adding up over your workout and is shown on the leaderboard. After your workout, you can see all your results with details like strike count, average force, frequency, and more in the app. It is a great way for members to know they are progressing.
More Beneficial Technology
In addition to the Impact Wraps, Knockout Fitness provides InBody body analysis to all members. InBody does not just measure ones weight, it records body composition analysis and breaks down the body into four components: fat, lean body mass, minerals, and body water. InBody’s body composition analyzer breaks down weight and body composition data on an organized, easy-to-understand Result Sheet. These results help distinguish fat, muscle, and body levels are and act as a guide to help the member achieve their goals: whether it is shedding a few unwanted pounds or a complete body transformation.
Better Results with Technology
By incorporating state-of-the-art technology with world-class instruction, Knockout Fitness is in the business of changing lives by training smarter, not just harder. “We (Knockout Coaches) love the metrics that the Impact Wraps provide us and our members. By being able to track and discuss our member’s workouts with them, we are able to help them understand their metabolic rate, strength, and conditioning. We are also able to develop enjoyable and challenging programming that maximizes caloric expenditure and promotes the EPOC (extended period of post-exercise oxygen consumption) effect based upon this data to boost their basal/resting metabolic rate. In short, our clients only benefit from more data,” said Mike Friedman, owner, operator and head coach at Knockout Fitness.
“We tested the technology with a pilot group, initially using 10 bags. What we found was a culture of friendly competition and camaraderie by our members who consistently used the monitored bags. They came in to beat their old scores, beat their friends/competitors day after day, week after week. We decided to implement the Impact Wrap technology throughout the studio. We are a results driven business that thrives on performance. This way we can design programming to the betterment of our members,” said Friedman.
