NEW YORK, May 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- EverybodyFights, an award-winning boxing gym, announced today a partnership with Aaptiv, a leading provider of premium digital health and wellness content. As part of the partnership, EverybodyFights, which was founded by George Foreman III, son of the two-time heavyweight champion George Foreman Sr., has created audio-guided classes exclusively for Aaptiv that are modeled after its in-gym experience and based on a real fighter's training camp.
The classes will make up an entire "Train Like a Boxer" program and will be part of Aaptiv's new collection of boxing workouts, which are now live on the Aaptiv app. The program is based on a real fighter's cross training regimen that includes shadowboxing, bag work, strength training, cardio conditioning, and yoga. All of the EverybodyFights audio-guided classes are led by the gym's certified instructors, including George Foreman III, who retired from professional boxing with a perfect 16-0 record.
"Our mission is to unleash the inner fighter in everyone, at home and in the gym, and Aaptiv gives us the unique ability to make authentic boxing training accessible to the masses," said George Foreman III. "Bringing boxing to users through audio is a challenge that requires partnering with the best, and we knew Aaptiv was the perfect partner for EverybodyFights because they are the best."
Aaptiv members have unlimited access to the EverybodyFights boxing program, which they can use for training at home or in a gym.
"We're focused on continuing to offer our members new, world-class workout content and are excited to officially launch boxing classes with the help of EverybodyFights," said Aaptiv CEO and founder Ethan Agarwal. "We know our members will love the workout program because EverybodyFights' incredible training camp pairs perfectly with audio, making it easier than ever to train like a boxer."
Aaptiv's entire boxing collection is available now and includes comprehensive training on foundational boxing technique, high intensity workouts, fun and inspiring playlists, and recovery and mindfulness instruction for rest days.
