Impact Wrap arrives in Spain with Fit4Life

 

Fit4Life brings to Spain the monitoring technology for punching bags from the American brand Impact Wrap, the leading hybrid fitness platform for punching bags in the world, and the only system that integrates heart rate measurement.

Impact Wrap is a system that, through sensors and software in the cloud, allows you to monitor any type of strike on all types of heavy bags. With simple installation, Impact Wrap turns bags into smart punching bags, providing users with real-time fitness and performance metrics.

It is a very motivating tool, which attracts new customers and helps to retain existing ones. And suitable for all types of facilities: boutique fitness studios and boxing clubs, kickboxing or cardio boxing style programs in gyms, combined training circuits, etc.

How does Impact Wrap work?

Impact Wrap’s sensors measure the acceleration produced by each strike on a punching bag, assigning a score to each impact: the harder you hit, the more points you receive.

Training results and scores can be viewed live on screens located in the same room during class. Immediately after a session or class, the metrics are automatically emailed to each participant and are registered in the Impact Wrap app, for individual consultation. In the app, each client has a personal profile where they can consult more details and graphs, as well as see their training history and their progress.

After training with Impact Wrap, the post-workout email open rate is an extraordinary 70%. This gives an idea of the high capacity of attraction as a tool to motivate and engage clients. As a comparison, the average opening of a marketing email is around 25% (21.5% in the “health and fitness” sector according to the MailChimp platform), a ratio that Impact Wrap triples.

Highly configurable for management from the club

Impact Wrap technology is not limited to just quantifying strikes, but also has the optional integration of heart rate and calorie burn metrics in the same platform. This  provides even more data and motivation for users in their workouts. It is also compatible with almost all ANT+ devices on the market.

At the administration and management level, the Impact Wrap portal also allows:

  • Plan workouts and classes in a calendar view, and even automatically schedule and start classes at the right time.
  • Create personalized workouts, assigning names to the rounds and configuring unlimited combinations of exercises.
  • Analyze the information of each subscriber to identify opportunities or offer a more personalized service.
  • Customize the appearance of the in house leaderboards, keeping them on brand with the gym’s logo and brand colors.

How Technology & Boxing Fitness Programs Help People with Parkinson’s Disease

Fighting Back Against Parkinson’s Disease

April is Parkinson’s Disease Awareness Month and we’re looking at how non-contact boxing fitness programs, particularly programs that use the Impact Wrap heavy bag tracking platform, are helping people with this neurodegenerative disorder.

Non-contact, boxing-inspired fitness routines have proven to lessen the symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease (PD), slow the disease’s progression, and greatly improve participants’ physical and mental wellness. One of these boxing programs is Rock Steady Boxing (RSB), an international non-profit organization founded in 2006, of which Impact Wrap is a proud affiliate partner. A number of our client gyms and studios such as TITLE Boxing Nanuet, The Empowerment Neurofitness and Wellness Center, Rebel Fitness NC, Striking Beauties, 99 BXNG, and Fitness Defense, to name just a few, incorporate boxing programs specifically tailored for Parkinson’s Disease, like RSB, and use Impact Wrap metrics to follow their participants’ progress and to motivate them.

Wendy Wilkerson, certified Medical Fitness Practitioner, and Founder and CEO of The Empowerment Neurofitness and Wellness Center (ENWC) has been using Impact Wrap in her specialized fitness-boxing programs, including Rock Steady Boxing, since 2021. Her non-profit fitness and wellness studio in Virginia Beach caters to individuals living with neurological disorders, such as PD and Multiple Sclerosis, through quality research-based exercise programs, including Rock Steady Boxing. 

The Impact Wrap hybrid platform for connected heavy bag fitness provides multiple performance and fitness metrics. Overall Impact Score, Average Impact Force, Impact Count and Frequency, Calorie Count, and Heart Rate metrics are all used by The Empowerment Neurofitness and Wellness Center to follow clients’ progress and improvement.

Studies suggest the most effective form of exercise to slow the progression of PD,  create neuroplasticity, and lessen symptoms is “forced intense exercise” or, pushing the body beyond perceived limitations. Impact Wrap’s “Average Impact Force” provides a picture of the force being used by ENWC’s clients to hit the bag.

Pacing, speed, and quickness help improve and postpone Bradykinesia, which is the slowness of movement and speed (or progressive hesitations /halts) as movements are continued. It is one of the cardinal symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, says Wendy Wilkerson. “Impact Count and Frequency” provides a way to follow the progress of a client’s pacing, speed, and quickness.

Research shows that Parkinson’s patients that do aerobic activity should keep their Heart Rate Zone at 60-85% to help provide neuroprotection, says Wendy at ENWC. With Impact Wrap’s heart rate monitor integration, both clients and staff can monitor this metric.

Impact Wrap is an invaluable tool in a boxing fitness program specifically designed for Parkinson’s disease. Not only do the metrics Impact Wrap provides help trainers and physical therapists, but they drive participants’ motivation and confidence!

FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing Affiliate Program Uses Impact Wrap Heavy Bag Technology To Help Martial Arts Schools Optimize Downtime and Maximize Profit

We love seeing our innovative gyms and martial arts schools use the Impact Wrap technology to create unique workout experiences. Master Justin Scarsella, owner of Master Scarsella’s World Class Tae Kwon Do, took Impact Wrap’s ease of use and its ability to be fully customized and created a unique new fitness program that is easily packaged and distributable.

Back in 2020, Master Scarsella wanted to take the Tae Kwon Do classes at his two very successful Alabama schools to the next level. He was looking for data-driven motivation and engagement using cutting-edge technology. A few ideas about adding a kickboxing fitness program were also just starting to take shape for him at that time. Master Scarsella fully vetted us and took a chance on the Impact Wrap heavy bag tracking platform. Three years later A LOT of innovation and growth has happened for Master Scarsella’s business ventures and Impact Wrap.

The idea, the pandemic, and the big project.

Master Scarsella has an extensive fitness background and was one of the first CrossFit affiliates in the state of Alabama. CrossFit essentially turned fitness into a sport; everything became timed and scored. Once the heavy bags at his schools were connected with Impact Wrap, and the system began registering the force and frequency of strikes and displaying the live scores on a leaderboard, some ideas began to take shape for Master Scarsella. During the early part of the pandemic, he started pulling these ideas together and it became his “big project.” Some of the same fitness principles that were foundational with CrossFit and its original methodologies he put into his newly created fitness kickboxing program. He took the kickboxing element and then filled in the gaps with body mechanic drills, resistance bands, and body weight calisthenics, making it a well-rounded fitness program for anyone of any fitness level.

“When you blend great teaching and programming with the right tech and hardware, magical results happen” – Master Scarsella

Master Scarsella and his staff began testing a pilot program of FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing at his two Alabama schools. The pilot program was filled with parents and families of the kids from his schools. They had no previous martial arts or kickboxing background. They never had the interest to jump on the mat for a Tae Kwon Do class. But, they loved Master Scarsella’s schools and the trainers. As soon as they saw it was a fitness kickboxing class, once they learned about the heavy bag metrics via Impact Wrap and how they could quantify their striking speed and power, they were all in. His market demographic was already there, right in front of him. As Master Scarsella explains, “just normal moms and dads that wanted to get in better shape, increase flexibility, and develop a community and that’s really how it started.”

Impact Wrap Franchise Management Tools and Workout Packs ensure brand continuity.

Impact Wrap now offers Franchise Management Tools which use our Workout Packs system. Corporate trainers create workouts, with or without video, and can then populate franchisee workout libraries, ensuring program and brand continuity. Our Workout Packs are a way for us to help our gyms save time and streamline operations, particularly for multi-location gyms, franchises, or programs like the FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing Affiliate program.

FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing was initially designed with the idea that it would be rolled out to other people and Master Scarsella wanted to create it as a license, not a franchise. He wasn’t looking to create a standalone program, but rather a program that would be part of an already successful martial arts school and would optimize their downtime. The FGHTR affiliate program uses Impact Wrap Workout Packs that Master Scarsella designs for the program and then are easily exported to affiliates. Master Scarsella and his team can then populate affiliates’ workout libraries. The Workout Packs they create lay out the format of each class – the Body Mechanic Warm-ups, Kickboxing, Resistance Bands, Body Weight Exercises, and Cool-Down Recovery. It’s essentially plug-and-play for the affiliates.

The classes and integration with Impact Wrap Technology, help you surpass your own limits while feeling amazing!” – FGHTR Fitness participant

To keep things fun and fresh, Master Scarsella’s team again utilizes Impact Wrap’s easily configurable platform to create new workout packs on a monthly basis, which are then distributed to all FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing affiliates. The ability to customize workouts so easily with Impact Wrap also sparks creativity. Master Scarsella is able to create workouts that directly appeal to his particular market demographic: moms and dads of Tae Kwon Do and martial arts school students. For instance, naming workouts ‘Trapper Keeper’ is a shout-out to those Gen-X and Millenial parents, almost like an inside joke. Or how about a workout named after the Disney villain “Ursula” which finishes with 8 kickboxing rounds, representing her 8 limbs? What parent hasn’t watched The Little Mermaid 7,000 times and as a result wouldn’t be completely motivated to kick Ursula’s butt? None! Additionally, Workout Pack extras like emojis can be used and often add a little extra touch to the fun and creativity!

“It’s keeping us just as technologically advanced as these giant franchises.” – Master Scarsella

By becoming a FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing Affiliate, martial arts schools can implement a fitness kickboxing program with minimal effort and expense. FGHTR provides a comprehensive program, including a trainer certification process, marketing tools, help in getting set-up with the Impact Wrap connected fitness platform, including our integrated heart rate and calorie metrics, plus access to its industry-leading fitness kickboxing content via their Impact Wrap Workout Packs solution. The FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing Affiliate program makes it easy to set up and begin maximizing revenue. The affiliate program has been immensely popular and successful. Master Scarsella has been busy building it out, adding more and more affiliates. Master Roberts World Class Tae Kwon Do, one of the newest FGHTR Fitness Kickboxing affiliates, has had such great feedback in just a few short months that they’ve already added additional classes and more Impact Wrap Trackers to their heavy bag line-up!

REBEL GYM: FIRST & ONLY SMART KICKBOXING GYM IN KUWAIT IS ALSO ENTIRELY WOMAN OWNED

Impact Wrap heavy bag tracking platform in FIRE Fit STRIKE classes boxing studio.

Impact Wrap has been helping businesses grow since 2017 and this gym success story we’re particularly proud of.

Rebel Gym is the first and only smart kickboxing gym in Kuwait. It’s also Impact Wrap’s first gym in this middle eastern country along the Persian Gulf. Rebel first approached us over 2 years ago with a unique concept studio they were opening. It would be boutique, very upscale, and would use the latest, most advanced striking technology as a foundation of its business model. At the time, we had no idea what the contact’s gender was as communications were through email and somewhat hidden. It did not matter, we were completely intrigued! We were all in on their idea and excited to see the branding. It wasn’t until later on when helping get them set up with the Impact Wrap platform that we learned Rebel was a women-owned, women-only kickboxing studio, and realized the difficulties they were up against because of this.

“What we decided to do, as a company, is support them.” – Impact Wrap Founder and CEO Dan Fradin

We know how hard it is to be a small business just starting out. It’s even harder to be female entrepreneurs just starting out and harder still doing it in Kuwait. We started learning about the obstacles before them and decided what to do as a company is to support them in any way we could, including making them Impact Wrap’s exclusive partner in Kuwait. We helped them get a head start over the competition with the exclusivity and it’s a great feeling to be able to help folks out. In fact, we’re now doing the same for a woman-owned kickboxing fitness business in India!

“It’s not just a gym, a workout, it’s an experience…on a whole different level that you cannot see in other gyms…that’s what Impact Wrap made it.” – Rebel Gym Co-Founder Fatemah Aljenaei

Since those early days, Rebel Gym Kuwait has knocked it out of the park with its sleek and ultra-modern facility. Co-Founder and Head Coach Fatemah Alothman wanted “to be creative and innovative,” to be “totally different from other gyms in Kuwait.” The ease of customizing the Impact Wrap platform has enabled her to create 30+ (and counting!) different fitness programs for her members. We have been blown away by the attention to member detail that they have layered into every touch point. Now, going on over two years with Impact Wrap, our tech has been the foundation for every Rebel Gym workout.

“Go and do it.” – Rebel Gym Co-Founder and Head Coach Fatemah Alothman

Rebel Gym has been breaking barriers on its way to dominance in Kuwait since its opening. Retention rate and loyalty for the brand and gym are through the roof and Rebel continues to get more leads just through word of mouth and organic social media shares by clients. “Impact Wrap is the glue that holds this whole experience together,” says Co-Founder Fatemah Aljenaei. Due to popular demand Rebel has expanded and added more Impact Wrap connected heavy bags to accommodate the increase in membership. Rebel Gym owners Fatemah Alothman, Asmaa Alasfour, and Fatemah Aljenaei have understood the importance of using data and technology to drive motivation, retention, and revenue from the get-go. So much of the innovation Rebel does is data-driven and that’s paid off.

Visiting Kuwait and experiencing Rebel in person.

Impact Wrap Founder and CEO Dan Fradin was fortunate enough to get over there this summer (when it was 118°F / 48°C, of course!) and see the gym in practice.

“It was amazing. It was a really, truly great place. We’re excited to be building a partnership with Rebel and it was so rewarding to hear that we’ve been helpful for them. It’s such a good feeling to be able to help a small business halfway around the world, get them ahead of the curve, and now see where they go from here. They are talking about franchising, and have some interest there. So, we’re excited to see where things go.”

Check out Dan’s interview with two of the three Rebel owners Fatemah Alothman and Fatemah Aljenaei. What these incredible women have to say about their business model and how Impact Wrap has been instrumental in its success is totally worth the time!

Not going to settle for just being the best gym in Kuwait….

It’s difficult enough to own a small business, but being a women-owned business in Kuwait takes serious determination, confidence, and tenacity. Rebel Gym co-owners have serious plans and ambitions. Although proud to be a local homegrown Kuwaiti fitness business success story, they don’t want to be just the best gym in Kuwait, they have their eyes on being the best in the world! We can’t wait to come along for the journey!

IMPACT WRAP INTRODUCES HEART RATE MONITOR INTEGRATION

Becomes World’s First Connected Heavy Bag Fitness Platform with Heart Rate and Calorie Burn Metrics

 

Philadelphia, PA – June 21, 2022 – Impact Wrap, a leader in connected heavy bag tracking, is excited to announce an industry first cloud-based integration of heart rate (HR), calorie burn, and striking metrics. Through real-time and post-workout touch points, members of group and personal training now have a comprehensive, single view of their fitness and performance data.

“We’ve had more than one example of members burning 40-50% more calories in their normal workout once we install Impact Wrap. It was eye opening when I first saw it. Our team has set a new benchmark for the millions of cardio boxing and kickboxing participants with this feature,” said Dan Fradin, founder and CEO of Impact Wrap.

Impact Wrap has completed onboarding Polar, the world’s leader in fitness heart rate monitors, along with a dozen other heart rate manufacturers so far. Studios have a number of options to resell or use existing Heart Rate Monitors (HRM) with their members.

Post-workout, members receive an email summary of key metrics. For those wanting additional insight and details, iOS and Android apps offer a complete history along with round-by-round breakdowns and interactive graphs.

“We have Impact Wrap at both of our clubs and as soon as I saw the announcement about adding heart rate monitors, I knew we were in,” said Jeff Wallace, owner of Box-It Fitness in Rio Grande and Seaville, NJ. “Impact Wrap has been a game changer for us, and our members love it.” 

Continuing to innovate, Impact Wrap will be incorporating HR, calorie data, and open APIs into their upcoming Workout Management Platform (WMP). The WMP is another industry first where gyms and personal trainers can monetize their own content while offering members the convenience of an omnichannel data-driven fitness experience.

FOUNDER & CEO STORY

Impact Wrap Founder and CEO Dan Fradin working out on a smart heavy bag.

I’m Dan Fradin, and I’ve been hitting the heavy bag for 30 years.

In my prime, I was competing with top amateurs and seriously thinking about going pro when I damaged disks in my neck, and I was just in too much pain to continue.

So I switched gears and focused on what I loved most about MMA, which was the incredible workout. And, I began studying the science of it with a good friend of mine who had a Ph.D. in bioinformatics.

At the same time, my career as a technologist and marketing executive took off.

But, what I really wanted was a system to help me with my heavy bag training. I looked around and there wasn’t anything. I could measure my heartbeat, my running, my walking, my biking…so many things, but I couldn’t measure what I wanted to measure, which was my heavy bag workouts.

I knew if I wanted it, other people would too. So I decided to make it myself. And what I couldn’t do myself, I found experts to help me. And I made it all happen, the math, the algorithm, the hardware, the social interaction, and competition.

It took a long time and hard work to get it right, but when we got it right, I took to gyms and they loved it because it grew their businesses. Impact Wrap took off so fast that I had trouble keeping up with the demand even today.

Our business model was marketed to gyms. B2B. Now, we have hundreds of gyms and thousands of people using Impact Wrap around the world.

In 2020, I knew I needed to market directly to the users outside of the gym so we rebuilt it for home use. We launched our Impact@Home MVP in the summer, and we are now set up collecting amazing feedback as we look to launch Impact@Home 1.0.

With our launch of v3 platform recently, I feel like my journey has just started again as we re-invent connected heavy bag fitness once more!
