Get your own personal boxing training and coaching anytime and anywhere from Canadian National Boxing champion, Kent Brown.
When Fit First-Youth Edition launched on Tuesday, September 3 on APTN it came with an innovative fitness app developed by Winnipeg’s Tactica Interactive and featuring Canadian National Boxing champion, Kent Brown. The app is available for $1.99 on the iTunes store.
Fit First: Youth Edition follows four Aboriginal youth from different walks of life, who all struggle with being overweight but have set a goal to get healthy in mind, body and spirit. The four participants become part of Kent Brown’s gym and learn to sweat off the pounds to become lean and powerful, both inside and out.
The accompanying Fit First iPhone app is a home boxing fitness trainer that lets users train along with Canadian National Boxing champion Kent Brown to lose weight and increase strength, endurance, speed and coordination. Through a series of preset and customizable workouts and professional video instruction the app helps you achieve your physical peak through the most explosive sport around.
With Fit First you can:
- Customize the right workout for you by setting the duration, intensity level and type of workout (cardiovascular, strength or explosive);
- Automatically generate a unique workout every time so you’ll never get bored;
- Get motivated with video instructions while you workout;
- Track your workout history and progress, such as weight, calories expended, type of workouts and intensity level;
- Listen to songs and playlists from your own music library while still hearing expert instructions from your coach; and
- Create and save your favorite workouts.
“Making a lifestyle change is easier when you’re not alone, when you’re part of something that provides expert support for what you’re trying to accomplish,” says Kevin Glasier, founder and President of Tactica Interactive. “This app gives you access to a personal fitness trainer ready to guide you through a workout customized to your needs anywhere and anytime you need it.”
