BOB vs. Bag
Traditional boxing gyms are sure to evoke images of sweaty guys punching on 300-lb punching bags hanging from the ceiling, or gloved hands slamming away at a speed bag in the corner. Well Big Hit Studios isn’t your typical boxing gym, so welcome to the next level.
We’ve taken what’s sure to be one of the most physically taxing workouts and made it fun and accessible for EVERYONE, and one of the catalysts in this project is the introduction of BOB: The Body Opponent Bag. Sure, the menacing scowl on his face may seem intimidating at first, but it’s just a show. BOB is actually the best and most accommodating sparring partner anyone could ever hope for!
Unlike a traditional heavy punching bag, BOB has a lot of “give” when hit, especially in his upper body and head, where most of your punches will be landing. The lower torso is more solid, welcoming you to take your hardest shots and heaviest kicks without even making him flinch. Heavy bags can often be so solid that it feels like hitting a lightly padded brick wall, but BOB has enough sway to save your wrists while still allowing you to hit as hard as you are able without toppling him over.
Having common anatomy to aim for adds a lot of fun as well as simpler direction to a workout with BOB. Knowing how and where to hit on a bag takes practice, but following instructions on how to hit BOB couldn’t be easier – a punch to the nose or a kick to the ribs can easily be replicated by even the newest beginner.
That mean mug staring back at you may also muster up some extra energy to push through the toughest workouts by personifying BOB as your mean boss or that cop that gave you a parking ticket this morning – whatever it takes to make you give it all you’ve got!
Because of BOB’s physique, you can also do a ton of things with him that could never be done with a bag, like headlocks, upper cuts to the chin and multitude of moves using his base as a step. Training with BOB allows for an experience that you could never get with a traditional heavy bag.
