A small but indestructible balance board invented in London is disrupting exercise habits and producing incredible results. Designed out of the needs of a London surfing group it brings together many exercise methods and puts your time first by enabling you to exercise when you want, where you want.
Many Londoners have taken the Rooboard to heart and are using it to improve core strength and postural stability. Many are taking it to work and using it in the office.
The Rooboard combines the functionality of many pieces of fitness equipment in a single portable package.
It creates instability which forces the stabiliser muscles to engage, which in turn increases the intensity of the exercises performed. This means shorter body weight workouts for increased gains. These are what we call muscle hacks.
From targeted muscle group exercises for core and balance, to HIIT and sports specific workouts the Rooboard can compliment your existing training sessions or become your single piece of goto fitness equipment.

- Many balance or wobble boards have a sandpaper like grip surface or plastic knobs that are hard on the hands or feet. The Rooboard has an sunken EVA grip surface which is also raised 3mm above the deck for extra comfort. This means it can be used from the hands, forearms, feet and for seated exercises without causing skin irritation or scratching.
- Made from solid polypropylene with a convex centre deck for extra strength the Rooboard is extremely strong and designed to flex to cushion explosive exercises.The deck has three concave indentations on its bottom surface which enable it to be used as a balance board, fitness platform and angle/slant board.
- Extremely resilient to stress each deck comes with two EVA balance pads. During prototype testing we were able to identify the perfect degree of hardness for the pads. This mixture of hardness and give, in order to create the instability or ‘wobble’ is key to the incredible performance of the Rooboard.
The Rooboard was born out of a passion to increase fitness, strength and balance. It had to increase muscular symmetry and performance for action sports like surfing, skating and skiing. And, it had to fit busy proactive lifestyles and be extremely portable, as in the daily work commute, flights, hotel rooms and those cheeky moments when you want to workout quickly and discreetly.
If you’re not already this could be the time to get a wobble on.
