Plastic Fantastic Trainer: Get Stealth Exercise at Home

Looking for a way to work out at home during the pandemic? Adam Engst tried the Stealth Core Trainer, which enables you to do dynamic planks while using your body as a game controller for playing simple video games on your iPhone.


One tip that I couldn’t fit into the article. It’s very hard to take screenshots while on the Stealth, but I remembered that you can get Siri to take screenshots. I did have to unplug the HomePod so it stopped responding, but then I was able to say “Hey Siri, take a screenshot” to capture one while playing. It’s also worth remembering that if you ever need a screenshot that requires too many fingers on the screen.

Adam, will an iPhone 8 Plus or an iPhone 12 Pro Max fit in the slot?

I assume so, since there’s plenty of room beyond my iPhone 11 Pro and the Stealth people claim all smartphones will fit. But I don’t have one to test with in person. I’ll mention that it in the article… Thanks!
