Frequently Asked Questions
What instruction do I get for a workout?
Launchpad training starts with short video instruction from elite athletes and trainers before each exercise. You can view this video instruction or tips at any time during the set. While you are working out, your body and joint position markers show on screen as SpeedAI measures your speed.
What is a workout like?
Your workout will start with muscle activation. Muscle activation is better than old school stretching or heart rate elevation in that it enables more output as you strain. Then you’ll perform a wide range of exercises and dynamic movements with more rest between sets to facilitate recovery and maximum output during each set. That’s fast twitch training.
Will I get form coaching?
SpeedAI will not count reps that are performed incorrectly. Range of motion is the most common reason for a rep to not count, but if you’re doing something incorrect, you will get an onscreen message for how to correct it.
How will I be measured?
SpeedAI is a data model that detects 17 points on your body faster than you can see. Those data points are compiled to determine if you’ve completed a rep and more importantly, how quickly you moved through the concentric phase of movement. That measure is normalized for each exercise so that your target is always 100.
How long is a workout?
You can choose the 30, 45, or 60 minute workout depending on the time you have available. If you do shorter workouts, you’ll earn fewer as you complete fewer sets of each exercise.
What music is playing?
You can play any music from your phone while you workout.
How hard is it?
This is not HIIT - Launchpad workouts are designed to build you up, not break you down. Each rep should demand your maximum output, but we do not demand counterproductive excessive hypertrophy.
Is it for me?
Do you support Android?
What’s the Locker Room?
You and your team can talk about games coming up, the workout you did, or the poll of the day. You can also see who has done their workout for the day and nudge them to make sure you complete challenges that will increase your LAUNCHCOIN earnings.
What equipment do I need?
There are 12 pieces of equipment that you could possibly need for a Launchpad workout, but if you don’t have something you’ve got options. We make premium equipment available for purchase in the Equipment Room (discounted for paying members). We also adjust workouts to the equipment you have available including bodyweight options.
How does LAUNCHCOIN work?
You workout, you earn. Your team works out, you earn. You take the poll of the day in the Locker Room, you earn. You refer a friend... you get it. These points determine your experience level which has perks: bonus LAUNCHCOIN for everything you do, exclusive access merchandise in the Equipment Room, and instruction cameos. LAUNCHCOIN can be redeemed for gear, merch, and experiences. Don’t have enough for something? You can buy items in the equipment room with LC, $, or $ + LC.
What if I don’t have a team?
Just get on campus, and you can find a team that you can ask to join. New teams are always forming and if you show that you workout consistently, teams will want you to help them earn the most points.
Can I use Launchpad without a subscription?
Yes, you can get access to the training room and equipment room if you don’t have a subscription. In the training room you can earn LAUNCHCOIN for muscle activation and game day routines. You can purchase equipment and merch in the Equipment Room for cash, points, or cash + points, but you will not receive the member discount.
What if I have a brother/sister/family member who wants to do Launchpad?
Refer your family members and get bonus LAUNCHCOIN as well as the discounted referral rate. Have 5 or more people who want to join? Email firstname.lastname@example.org about team discounts.
Can two people train at the same time?
Not on the same phone.
What is the right age to train?
Launchpad’s safety council has worked together to design age-appropriate workouts for every user. We recommend that children under 10 not use the Launchpad in training mode. We will develop content in the future that lets them move and have fun without risking injury. For more information on training by age, see our blog post here.
How much is the Launchpad Membership?
$19.99 per month if you’re referred to Launchpad
I'm a parent, can I use it too?
Yes! You can be an athlete your entire life. Launchpad’s training programs for adults are designed to keep your body moving in dynamic ways. Stay healthy, moving, and active for longer with Launchpad.
Should I train on Launchpad in-season?
Strength training in-season is critical for staying healthy and maintaining peak athletic performance during competition. Simply active game day mode and Launchpad’s pre- and post-game activation workouts get your body fired up and ready to go.
Can I do Launchpad workouts with my own equipment?
Yes, when you enter the Weight Room for the first time, you will be asked to set up your home and standard gym so that we can give you exercises that can be done where you are each time you go to workout. Launchpad serves the future of training that happens at home, in the gym, and on the road.
Can I get credit for referring to friends?
Yes! You'll receive a referral code and cards that you can give to your friends and teammates. With each referral you'll earn 25,000 LAUNCHCOIN after the first payment, enough for gear or a free month of training. Your friend will receive an extra free month + 10,000 LAUNCHCOIN when they make their first payment. If you refer 10 people, you'll get a limited-edition Launchpad hoodie.
