Even the current world champion in kickboxing was amazed and could hold his plank longer than before and the record holder is at the proud age of 65 - his time is six minutes of planking”, explains Reinegger.

‘We have combined an effective full body workout with entertaining smartphone games. While the whole body gets into shape and is being strengthened, you focus on the accompanying games on the smartphone. You get fitter, train for a crispy six-pack and reinforce back and core. Our studies with more than 100 people of different ages and varying levels of fitness have revealed that they can almost last up to 50% longer. Instead of focusing the thoughts on the difficult workout, you concentrate on the game. That results in better workouts, provides a crispy six-pack and trains the back and the core.’
