Speed Bag: Urban Gym Punches its Way into the App Store

New Boxing Application Delivers the Ultimate Combo of Training and Fun

The iTunes App Store has just received a heavyweight addition to its roster of games, as Speed Bag: Urban Gym is now available for download. Speed Bag: Urban Gym offers the most authentic boxing experience found on the iPhone/iPod touch. Whether you are new to the ring or a boxing professional, Speed Bag: Urban Gym simulates what it is like to hit the bag wherever you go.

Developed with direct input from the boxing community, Speed Bag: Urban Gym uses precise physics to put you to work on a 3D speed bag. Players must effectively combine rhythm and timing to achieve three-count combos. With multiple rounds that progressively add new challenges, Speed Bag: Urban Gym will put your boxing prowess to the ultimate test.

“As an avid boxer myself, I wanted to create an application that would be useful for boxers looking for another option to train outside of the gym,” said Marc Polett of Manayunk Productions. “With the help of Amadeus Consulting, Inc., I feel we have not only recreated the exact feel and atmosphere associated with going up against a speed bag, but have also created a fun game that will introduce new fans to the sport of boxing.”
