Yes, your Rooboard will cost you a small investment but so does your training gear and the Rooboard does cost less than a pair of trainers and even a single item of branded fitness clothing.
What it gives you is a huge variety of exercises and workouts for fitness, core strength, balance and stability. It forces you to engage your core and stabiliser muscles which in turn increases the intensity of the stresses on your muscles. This lowers your workout times and increases your health, fitness and muscular gains.
Best of all you can workout almost anywhere – the home, office, outdoors, even on plane! The Rooboard really does make you as free as bird when it comes to your workouts.
Free Posture Fix
Our posture can say a lot about the health of our muscle functions. Poor posture is usually caused by a lack of core strength or muscular imbalance. This will lead to injuries and back pain and can quite often result in extended leave from work or doing the things we love to do. Slouching and slumping are indications of this lack of core strength. A study found that slouching may even make you feel sad.
Once the preserve of athletes, the benefits of balance and stability training are slowly moving into the mainstream consciousness. This type of training improves postural strength, spinal stability and coordination.
The exercises performed on the Rooboard for balance and stability are also scalable. From seated exercises with very little physical exertion to high intensity interval workouts there is an exercise and routine for every requirement.
The Rooboard is being used by hundreds of people for rehabilitation, sports specific training, fitness and improving functional movement and strength – especially in older users.
Balance and stability training engages the muscles and fibres that we take for granted. These are the muscles that stop us from slouching when seated, that enable us to stay upright when we slip or tread on an unstable surface, the same muscles that also enable us to react unconsciously to a dynamic environment.
By training these muscles we are training our unconscious mind to have faith in our body. To help us to have confidence in our movements, regardless of how unstable the environment is.
