    This Heavy Bag Hits Back

    Well not really, but it maybe the bark is worse than the bite?


    Fight or Slight: This Heavy Bag Hits Back


    History, hockey and Jersey Shore are rife with examples of the fuse-shortening effect an unrestrained barrage of trash talking can have. People get insulted, they get angry, they get in fights.

    From the predictability of such primitive wiring comes opportunity, at least for London-based fitness center Gymbox. The gym has increased the hostility index of its Holborn location with the Human Punching Bag: an employee ensconced in a padded tube who taunts boxing clients as they pummel his cushioned torso. The invention is central to the “Goadivation” technique Gymbox created to keep those in its boxing workouts fired up.

    “We noticed that in combat classes, people fade near the end of the session,” says Gymbox operational director David Cooper. “The Human Punching Bag’s goading provokes and motivates them to fight through the fatigue. It’s the same idea as having a trainer standing next to you and yelling. We just built a bag around the coach.”

    I don't know about you guys, but I think this would be more annoying than anything.

    I would kick him in the face all the time, and then run away before he gets out of this teletubby costume.

    One of my old training partners had about the same dimensions. It was both creepy and awesome to punch into his gut and have the folds of his fat and skin mold itself around the glove.
    Calm down, it's only ones and zeros.
