AbstractA simulated sparring partner apparatus and method for the training and exercising of a boxer, including a track, a target article such as a punching bag suspended from the track, a drive for moving the punching bag along the track, and control apparatus for controlling the speed and direction of movement of the carriage along the track. The drive may move the punching bag at various speeds and in either direction. Also, the drive may be programmable such that the punching bag follows a predetermined path at predetermined speeds. Alternatively, motion of the punching bag may be manual so as to allow a coach or trainer to control the motion of the bag.
