Isometric workout is unlike any other exercise in that you won’t move too much throughout the session. It involves putting on pressure against a body part, holding that position and maintaining it for a certain period of time.

With isometric-style workouts, it’s quite difficult to gauge how you’re progressing over time. The Activ5 seeks to be the go-to device that measures certain data via sensors scattered throughout its spongy shell.

The product comes with the Activ5 Training app that provides tutorials and suggested workouts you can try. There are more than a hundred 5-minute exercises that can be done anytime, anywhere.

Those who want to try it out before they buy can go to the nearest Apple Store and demo it for free. An Activ5 representative will be helping you get acclimated to the interesting world of isometric workout.
