No Fitness Models
He’s old and some say ugly but he’s proved that you don’t have to be sexy to sell a fitness product.
Life long surfer Mason Gilmour spent sixteen years in the health and fitness industry. During this time he created a balance and stability class called Surfgym. Surfgym was taught in London during 2011/12 using surfing balance boards, air cushions, fit balls and wobble boards.
Having to transport such a large amount of equipment in London was a back breaker. Mason needed a single product that could replicate the exercises performed on the multiple pieces of equipment used in Surfgym. When he realised this product did not exist he designed it and the Rooboard was born after two years of prototypes and extensive testing.
About Mason Gilmour: Mason has a Diploma in Sports Studies from Otago University in New Zealand and is a former personal trainer and health club general manager. As a life long surfer he knows the importance of balance and stability training and the importance of building a strong core to aid postural strength and prevent injury or back pain. He has also competed in triathlons, multi sports and has run one marathon. In 2003 he swam the English Channel in team from the London Surf Club.

Independent fitness start-up Surfgym launched the Rooboard Balance Board and Core Trainer after years of using alternative fitness and exercise equipment that could not fulfil all requirements.
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.
The Rooboard is a cheap but extremely effective tool. It is the culmination of many years of prototypes, testing and feedback. Think of it as the Swiss Army knife of fitness equipment – it brings many different pieces of equipment together, in one durable and functional package.
