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, like surfing. 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.
It’s been a wonderful journey thus far and as requested it is time to offer the Rooboard with a choice of colours and bring the Surfgym® workouts back into body transforming prominence.
Some of the benefits of using the Rooboard include:
Postural strength and spinal support
Balance and stability
Increased calorie burning through HIIT
Incredible core strength
Your Kickstarter colour choices are: burnt orange, olive green, stealth black and ocean blue.

Transform your core and postural strength, balance, stability and fitness with a single product. Designed by Londoner Mason Gilmour-Platt to stay in shape for surfing the Rooboard combines the functionality of many pieces of fitness equipment in a single portable package.
Current users of the Rooboard include surfers, city workers, professional boxers, MMA fighters and members of the British Combined Services Disabled Ski Team. These very early stage Rooboarders have seen huge gains in their stability, agility and postural strength.
The instability element forces the core and stabiliser muscles to engage at all times which in turn increases the intensity of the exercises. This is the secret to the performance of the Rooboard and means you have a shorter workout session for enhanced results.

We have put our heart and soul into the Rooboard and want others to share in the lifestyle gains we have experienced. What we don’t want to do is spend a fortune on marketing and add this to the retail cost. We are using Kickstarter for a couple of reasons. It gives fellow fitness enthusiasts a chance to purchase the Rooboard at a heavily discounted price. And, we can produce to order which lowers the cost, especially for North American pledges as we can ship in bulk for individual distribution. Basically, it saves you money.
