In the studio, let Speak and Spar run the timer, as students take their turn to see who’s the fastest and who’s the most powerful. Who has the fastest jab? Speak and Spar knows.
Speak and Spar puts you in a simulated ring for a match, a fun new way to do interval training.
You set the number of rounds, how long they last, and the amount of time you can rest between rounds.
You will hear your opponent respond to your strikes. As you fight round after round, if you work hard, the simulated audience will be heard cheering you on.
Having a fast punch is great, but it's even better with proper distancing that maximizes impact to your target.
Speak and Spar measures how effectively your strikes impact the bag.
