You don’t need to be a UFC superfan in order to appreciate the fitness regimens endured by champions like Floyd Mayweather, Mike Tyson and Francis Ngannou. But if you do want to learn how to throw a punch like a pro boxer or mixed martial arts fighter (without risking a TKO), you can safely get into the ring with FightCamp, an at-home workout that recently nabbed $90 million in funding from the aforementioned fighters alongside Usher (who even added a setup to his L.A. dressing room), Georges St-Pierre and Big Sky star Katheryn Winnick.
FightCamp’s setup includes a connected punching bag, wearable motion trackers and interactive fitness content so users can focus on a range of workout styles and skill-building training sessions, including cardio, boxing, kickboxing and more. The brand’s iOS app (an Android version is coming soon) offers access to 1,000 classes and tracks users’ statistics, such as the power and number of each punch.
Fitness enthusiasts can expect to work on their defensive moves, build muscle and keep their mind engaged, while beat-powered playlists ensure that you’ll get into the groove. There’s also a leaderboard that lets you see how you rank against others in FightCamp’s community, and you can even compete against yourself or others (without the blood, but perhaps some sweat and tears).
And whether you’re a bantamweight or a heavyweight, you’ll learn how to sweat like a real MMA fighter, too. Classes are led by fitness industry experts, including FightCamp co-founder and former U.S. Boxing team member Tommy Duquette, pro MMA fighter Shanie Rusth, celebrity dance trainer and martial artist Flo Master (who has worked with Will Smith, Jennifer Lopez and Ciara, to name a few), former U.S. National Kickboxing team member Aaron Swenson and many others.
Packages are $1,219 for the FightCamp Personal, which includes a free-standing bag, punch trackers, a workout mat, bag ring, premium boxing gloves and quick wraps; and $1,349 for the FightCamp Tribe option, which comes with additional accessories as well as kids boxing gloves. (Monthly financing is also available.) Memberships are $39 per month and at least four new workouts are added to the library each week.
FightCamp was founded in 2016, and investors include ClassPass CEO Fritz Lanman, Supercell founder and CEO Ilkka Paananen, startup seed funder Y Combinator and private equity investment firm IVP. Its latest funding round was led by Connect Ventures, an investment partnership between Creative Artists Agency and global venture capital firm new Enterprise Associates.
