LAS VEGAS (KYW Newsradio) — If you want to get, or stay, in shape, some innovations from the CES tech show in Las Vegas might deserve a place in your home gym. 

FightCamp includes a freestanding punching bag along with hand wraps and a workout mat, but the brains are inside the boxing gloves. 

Engadget's Dana Wollman landed some uppercuts. 

"For $39 per month, you stream classes through an iOS app. There are four new workouts a week, and all told, there are six trainers. I'm very pleased to say one of them is a woman, a former pro MMA fighter," Wollman said.

In a video for the tech site, Wollman says the workouts mix traditional boxing with planking, sit-ups and interval training.

But if its $1,000 price tag would be a TKO for your bank balance, start a bit smaller with the KettlebellConnect from Jax Jox. 

Megan Wollerton hoisted it on 

"It has a built-in accelerometer, and it connects through Bluetooth to an app. So it counts your reps, how quickly you're doing it, and it gives you a report of how well you've done with your workout," Wollerton said. 

As the $350 device sits in its base, the touch of a button changes the weight up to 42 pounds.
