HooKee: Smart, portable gym launches on Kickstarter

Staying (or getting) healthy and fit was guaranteed to be high on many people’s list of New Year’s resolutions in 2023. HooKee wants to prove that you don’t necessarily have to go to a gym and pay a monthly fee to do so. A smart and mobile gym that is now being funded via crowdfunding on Kickstarter.

HooKee: Here’s what’s inside the smart gym on Kickstarter

From squats to dead lifts and many more exercises, users of the HooKee smart and mobile gym should be able to benefit. The compact device offers resistance of up to 100 pounds or around 45 kilograms to enable even intense strength training. Adjustments are made in 10-pound or 4.5-kg increments.

Thanks to HydroFlex technology, the HooKee uses water power to generate this tremendous resistance. This is said to make resistance particularly controllable and safe during strength training. At the same time, it also reduces weight, because without water the mobile gym weighs just around 2.5 kilograms and, with dimensions of 739 x 190 x 160 millimeters, also fits into larger bags.

Despite these compact dimensions, the device is said to be able to perform over 100 full-body workouts. The sports device is powered by a rechargeable battery that is said to last for over 10,000 repetitions of individual exercises per charge before it needs to be recharged.

By using water, HooKee is also said to be particularly safe. Resistance is only generated when the water is “pushed”. Without this force, there is also no resistance, so the device remains in its previous position – minimizing safety risks.

App tracking and smart use

The HooKee also works with the Halytus app to track fitness exercises and progress. If desired, the user’s own performance data can also be shared and compared with the worldwide community. There are also workout classes offered within the app to help you improve.

Mounted on a base plate, the exercises should be able to be tracked precisely. In addition, the grip has a remote trigger called H-con, which allows you to access your smartphone wirelessly.
