GovX and BONKGEAR Partner for Army Physical Fitness Test Themed Apparel Retail Sales

ASHBURN, VA (PRWEB) April 17, 2015

BONKGEAR, designer and distributor of smart athletic apparel for endurance, strength and agility training, announces a retail partnership with GovX. GovX is the leading e-commerce destination providing discounts for current and former members of the U.S. Armed Forces, as well as first responders and related government agencies.

At GovX you will find products with pricing exclusively for verified {military and government} customers. All products are shipped directly from the manufacturer.

BONKGEAR, founded in the heart of an athlete, is a veteran owned small business. It is a first of its kind apparel company, providing you with the means to enhance or maintain your fitness level by ensuring that you always have a workout with you. Each BONKGEAR apparel design includes a hidden QR code that when scanned using any QR scanner on your smartphone, auto-launches a mobile-enhanced website containing daily rotating workouts inspired by the theme of the shirt. Each shirt design includes 9+ custom training workouts, with three levels of intensity – Level 1, Level 2 and BONK level.

BONKGEAR has launched a new shirt design and workout series for GovX customers – WARRIOR APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test). The WARRIOR APFT shirt comes with customized workouts and proudly displays a tailored Army APFT specific design on the back. Strength and Conditioning specialist, Stew Smith, creates the workouts that launch from the QR code on the shirts. “The workouts are designed to help improve your APFT test scores,” states Smith. “The workouts are perfect for newly enlisted soldiers, active duty personnel or veterans looking to stay fit. We provide an extra boost in maintaining physical fitness, and readiness for APFT test day.”

The APFT has a max score of 300 and consists of the 2 minute timed push-up, 2 minute timed sit-up, and the timed 2-mile run. “The military, no matter what branch, is finding it harder to find eligible candidates,” states Army vet and Founder of BONKGEAR, Chris Jones. “They are finding that 7 out of 10 new enlistments are out of shape and we want the WARRIOR shirts to be a form of self motivation to help them succeed.”

Smith is a U.S. Naval Academy graduate, former Navy SEAL Lieutenant, and an author of several fitness and self-defense books. Labeled as the Personal Trainer to the Heroes of Tomorrow, a tribute site to fallen heroes, Smith assists future heroes to train for any physical fitness test in the military and law enforcement agencies.

GovX CEO Marc Van Buskirk added, “The concept behind BONKGEAR speaks to the GovX culture of supporting all those who have ever protected and served. Staying in top physical condition is of the utmost importance to so many of our members, and the Warrior APFT shirt and workout series shows a deep commitment to their lifestyles, ethics, and call to service. GovX is truly thankful to have BONKGEAR on board with our mission, and to be a part of what will truly be an exciting and much-needed new product in fitness.”

3 Reasons To Workout With A Workout Partner

If you ever decide to take up the challenge and start working out again, whatever your end goal might be, you can dramatically improve the chances of hitting that goal if you workout with a partner. Working out with a partner has so many advantages over working solo. Below I am describing some of the key reasons why you should go with workout partner.

1. Your partner will always keep you motivated and encourage to continue
Often people start working out with great enthusiasm and excitement to make a difference in their lives. However after working out for few days, people start losing motivation and start skipping. Having a workout partner greatly reduces the chances of drop out of your routine. When you are working with a partner you feel like a part of team and will be more excited to continue working out.
Also there may days when you are really not feeling it and looking for excuses to miss. In situations like these if you have workout partner you will have to think twice before missing because you will have to answer and convince someone else besides you. A workout buddy will always keep you motivated and encourage to continue your routine.

2. Workout partner will help and support you while working out
Needless to say a lot of the free weights and exercise equipment require support of a second person.
If you are working without a workout buddy you might end up skipping some key exercises because you have no body to spot you. But if you have a workout partner they can help you with all the equipment that you might need spotting or help with. When you have partner spotting you, you will actually push your self further without much worries since you know some body is watching you in case if something goes wrong. By working out together you should return the favor of support for your partner as well.

3. Workout buddy would keep you entertained and will company you as well
Sometimes working out isn’t the most fun thing in your mind and you are simply bored and don’t want go alone. But if you are given an option to meet a good friend and chat, even a gym doesn’t seem like a bad place. That’s how going with a workout partner helps you. A workout buddy will keep you entertained and also you will not solely be focusing on the workout routines. This gives an escape route for your brain to not worry about workout routines and all of a sudden most of your workout session is gone by very quickly because you are focused on chatting with your partner at the same time.
