Stealth turns planking into game control for at home fitness

Techstination feature for Wednesday, May 27, 2020

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.       For many of us… the pandemic has meant it has been more difficult to get all the exercise we need.    A company called Stealth Body Fitness has created a fun way to merge phone based video games with planking.    And the Plankster does deliver a workout.    Founder Howard Panes designed a solidly made platform…that essentially acts as a controller for the Stealth games…some basic…and more through a premium subscription..

“And you just hit it and you’re gaming with your core.  Basically your body become the control of the game.   It uses the accelerometers of the phone and while you move the board…it moves the phone and you’re playing games.  You’re playing games, you’re working your whole body, you’re working all your core muscles.”

Clever and effective.     You can find more info at www.stealthbodyfitness.com.
