THIS boxing training video of the latest technology I posted went viral! Is this the future for boxing training?

I was recently at the world’s biggest fitness trade show, IHRSA, in San Diego, California. This is where all the latest inventions and trends in the fitness industry are showcased.

We had a booth there promoting our Box ‘N Burn Academy certification course and I was very happy when I saw this boxing booth advertising a “BotBoxer”. I went to see what it was all about and I saw a ton of people lining up to have a go at trying to hit this automated punch bag. The bag had sensors on it so when you go to hit it, it moves away.
