Are you tired of generic workouts and looking for a sparring partner that’s always ready for action? You might find what you’re looking for in Boxing Buddy, a brand-new piece of technology that’s currently being funded on Indiegogo. The device will turn your heavy punching bag into a smart training partner, enabling you to practise your defence moves and fighting skills whenever and wherever you want.
A punching bag that strikes back!
Boxing Buddy provides a realistic and difficult training experience thanks to its rotating soft-padded arms that simulate opponent strikes at a variety of speeds, paces, and intensities. This makes for a more effective workout. Yes, this is a pushing bag that actually strikes back.
It can be used with any round object, including boxing bags. If you don’t have a proper punching bag, you could tie it to a tree and use that instead. The soft padding on the arms creates the impression of an opponent striking at a variety of speeds and intensities.
All of this connects via Bluetooth-to a smartphone app. The software spits out with multiple personalised programs and progress tracking, ensuring you get the most out of your workouts. You can train on offense, defense, and footwork.
Boxing Buddy also adapts to your current skill level and the goals you’ve set for yourself. To this end it offers four distinct levels of difficulty. Essentially, it simulates the experience of working out with a partner.
Because of its lightweight construction and the fact that its foam arms are adjustable, it is very simple to pack up and transport. This ensures that you can work hard to improve your skills at your own pace and on your own time.

These types of workouts help to strengthen your core as well as your coordination and footwork. The rapid and unpredictable arm movements of Boxing Buddy force you to stay mobile and help you build leg strength by forcing you to perform squats as you try to avoid being hit. The device has the potential to sharpen your instincts and improve your reaction time, allowing you to be faster and more agile.
