Punch Lab, the future of your boxing training

Turn your boxing bag into a device that detects, measures and reacts to your punches.


What is Punch Lab?

Punchlab is a technology that will turn your boxing bag into a device that can detect, measure and react to your shots.

Without any additional device, other than the smartphone.

PunchLab is an app powered by sophisticated data analysis algorithms.

It uses existing technology in your phone to provide real-time feedback on the bagworkout.

PunchLab is also a fighter club that is not satisfied with traditions.

They are creating them.

Fill out the form on the website to receive a free PunchLab club pass.

The company promises this is just the beginning: “We constantly work with the best gyms in the world to create pre-programmed routines that interact with your shots. PunchLab puts the best sneakers in the world, right on your boxing bag.”

What you need to use Punch Lab

Once you get the pass, we help you find a belt to securely fix your smartphone on your bag and a send code to unlock all the features of the app.

You just need to have a lot at home or in the gym.

That’s it, no additional devices are needed to get the best punching experience.


How to place your phone on the bag and use Punch Lab

Very easy.

It’s full of racing belts that work just as well with PunchLab.

You simply wrap them around the sack instead of around your waist and this will do the trick.

On the site they have selected for you a couple of popular websites that sell them including Amazon Italia.

You can’t use it without the belt because soon some features will be added that you can use while you wait for the belt.

As a version of shadow boxing and as a boxing timer but to use it you need a citura.

How does Punch Lab work?

PunchLab, like all the biggest tech revolutions of recent times, is software-based. We don’t need any special hardware to give you what you need.

Our app uses existing technology built into any smartphone to detect the strength, intensity and number of shots thrown at the bag.

Our adaptive algorithms learn from your warnings and will become better and better as you use the app.

How much does PunchLab cost?

This is interesting because it doesn’t cost anything at the moment.

PunchLab is an invitation-only club and the company is not looking for money but are looking for people who want to work with them to build the best technology for combat sports.

PunchLab is still an experimental project.

They want to follow closely anyone who uses PunchLab and collect as much data as possible.

Things could change at any time, to be notified when PunchLab is on sale follow them on Instagram.


How to have access to the Club

The company is looking for people willing to test how far we can push the limits of boxing bag training.

Anyone can apply.

We will gradually add more and more people with time.

The chances of getting in have nothing to do with the amount of followers you have, or how many wins you have under your belt.

Do you have access to a bag?

Fill out this form, we’re looking for people like you.



How PunchLab works

During the construction of PunchLab we tried to cover the most important types of bag training. Together with professional athletes and coaches we have designed four essential training modes:

With Freestyle training you can do your routine and use the app as a timer and see statistics during and after training.

The workouts are specially designed to work on cardio and fitness.

Each workout has a set of pre-programmed intensity profiles that you need to follow to get the highest score. This way you’re motivated to push harder, even when you feel like you want to give up!

Tired of always throwing the same shots?

Combined training is a great alternative to bearing training.

When you have no one to keep pads to for yourself, PunchLab will show you strike combinations and analyze the strength and timing of your strikes.

We learned on the high intensity training field (HIIT) on the field, talking to professional and Olympic boxers. Short bursts of high activity are the best way to increase your power and explosiveness, which are abilities that turn a shot into a knockout punch.


Don’t you need to always look at the monitor?

No, the Freestyle training mode is designed for people who want to train their routine and look at the phone once in a while or between rounds.

The app will still show your activity and give you acoustic feedback, but you’re free to train at your own pace.

Everything you do will still be recorded and you can see it later!



How can you feel the movements of the bag?

Like many things you hit in workouts, bags move when you hit them and it might be hard to focus on your phone at first.

Always keep in mind that:

It will get better with time, you will learn to keep your eyes on the phone and increase concentration while you give a punch.

Only use bags suitable for your shot power because there are bags that are too light for a person’s average weight.

You might hit the bag too hard!

Find a heavier bag or reduce the strength of your fists by working on speed and volume.

And remember: punch the bag, don’t push it!

Try to mount the bag so that it hits right in the middle.

Both horizontally, but more important: vertically.

This is the best way to reduce the rotation and oscillation of the stock market.

Punch the bag in its original position.

You will learn to control the bag and react quickly to its movements.

Does that sound like something useful in a real fight?

Finally, but very important: use your legs.

The footwork is the most underrated aspect of martial arts, especially when people work in the sack.

PunchLab doesn’t let you be lazy. Turn around the bag and constantly move to keep your phone in front of you at all times.



Punch Lab developers are considering providing tools to create your workouts, share them with other fighters, or even sell them!

If it’s something interesting and because you want this write directly to (if you write to himtell him you read the post on )

The best experience is with active sounds, but they are not required to use the app.

You can mute at any time or use bluetooth earbuds to get the best out of the app.


But will the phone continue to work given the blows?

Touramente is a legitimate question and during the extensive punch lab tests, it never happened.

Just mount your phone at a height that you are not likely to hit, usually slightly above the level of your head.

Ps. My advice is to use a used smartphone!


It mounts on any bag

The Punch Lab app works with pretty much any kind of boxing bag.

But the recommended belt is designed for suspended and standing cylindrical bags with a diameter of between 60 and 120 cm.

These are the most common models you can find in online stores or combat and fitness gyms.

Make sure to fit the bag properly, use a proper length chain and a sufficiently heavy bag.


Works with all shots, even kicks

Of course, Punch Lab records and analyzes every shot you give it.

This can be very interesting because working with any type of shot you may have more chances but it has a flaw compared to other trackers.

Punch lab can’t detect the type of shot, not yet.

Developers believe that at the moment there are more important features to focus on.

To request this feature, and whatever else you have in mind, they are available to request the feature.

Detection of the type of shot for me is an important element because you can build statistics and also understand what are the strongest shots specifically and go to increase where there are more drains elements but this can be done only if you have the identification of the shot.

Although I must say that such a free product is already an important tool to do many specific jobs and monitor with the appropriate exercises even individual shots.


Does PunchLab count your shots?

He does. But there are still some factors that affect the reliability of the punch detector. If you’re having trouble, try:

  • Use a heavier bag.
  • If you’re using a bag too light for your punches, and excessive swinging can add more punches to the final count.
  • Avoid very long strings that hold the bag. These create a resonance effect that could affect fist detection.
  • Hit near the center of the bag. This is also how it should be done to avoid injury and will reduce the swing and rotation of the sack.

Keep in mind that the more you work out, the better our algorithms will detect your fists.

Application website:



I find it an interesting and ambitious tool and I really like that.

Objective data detection is something very important for a trainer who has to monitor himself if he trains in training only or the athletes he coaches.

Surely one of the problems is to always use the same bag, to always place the same height the smartphone with the app, use the same smartphone, and it would be interesting to be able to detect the type of shot to have a statistic of volume of shots.

Also you are limited to heavy sack while it is also important to do this type of exercises to the hitters (focus pad / pao / etc.)

To detect the power i can create specific exercises and runtines but certainly they are elements that over time will go to refine going to insert additional elements.

Congratulations to PunchLab for two important reasons, researching in combat sports to give training tools and for giving free this app as a detection tool.

Good luck with your work!
