The Stealth core trainer uses mobile games to mobilize the abs and other muscle groups in short, highly effective workout sessions.
The Stealth core trainer is an innovative device designed to turn the user's body into a game controller to deliver effective training sessions that work the abs and other muscle groups. Currently in the beta stage, it is the first video game integrated core trainer. It uses mobile games to allow users to focus on getting high scores instead of counting reps, challenging them to twist and turn to earn points and tone their midsection in the process. The trainer’s ball and joint structure gives users a good range of motion and a lot of freedom of movement, allowing them to lean forward and backward, tilt side to side, and rotate 360 degrees to hit parts of their core that few other core trainers can.
To start working out with the trainer, users can simply download one of the games developed for the device, place their smartphone into the designated slot and get into plank position. Holding this position is one of the most effective ways to strengthen the abdominal muscles, but also one of the most gruelling and tedious ones. The mini-games available with the Stealth trainer are designed to gamify these types of workouts with an unlimited number of gameplay options that literally keep players on their toes and their bodies and minds guessing. The muscle confusion combined with the motivating nature of the games leads to improved results, even with only 3-minute daily training sessions. The trainer helps users tone their abs, increase their flexibility, burn calories and boost their confidence.
Stealth uses the motion detector integrated into users’ smartphones to recognize their movement and then translates the movement into action within the games displayed on the screen. The games are designed to mirror various movements that mobilize 29 different muscles, including abs, obliques and lower back muscles. The games have different intensity settings and are suitable both for beginners and advanced users.
Stealth's Kickstarter campaign exceeded its funding goal on the very first day, and the first Stealth units are expected to reach the backers in June 2017. Watch the video below to see some of the workout options that the trainer offers.
