Balance Your Luggage
The Rooboard balance and core board is an incredibly versatile fitness product. At only 30cm in length and less than 1kg it is also the perfect travel companion making it the ultimate in carry on fitness luggage.
“We wanted a product that would not damage flooring or sink into the ground when used outdoors. We solved this by placing the flat surface of the balance pads against the floor and the fulcrum point against the bottom of the deck. The pads have a calculated foam density and the use of concave and convex surfaces between the pads and deck create the perfect instability for balance and core training.”
“Necessity, who is the mother of invention.”
Designed in the United Kingdom by Mason Gilmour DipSpSt, a former triathlete, fitness trainer, health club manager and life-long surfer. The Rooboard was created to fulfil specific training requirements within tight parameters. These being, it had to produce solid results, be extremely durable (in order to take a thrashing) and be easily transportable.
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 you are hopefully about to add to your fitness routine, is the culmination of many years of prototypes, testing and feedback. We 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.
Many balance or wobble boards have a sandpaper grip surface or plastic knobs that are hard on the hands or feet. The Rooboard has an indented 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.
By placing the flat surface of the balance pads against the floor and the fulcrum point against the bottom of the board the Rooboard designers created the most usable exercise product on the market. Unlike other products it will not damage flooring or sink into the ground when used outdoors. The pads have a calculated foam density and the use of concave and convex surfaces between the pads and deck create the perfect instability for balance and core training.
The Rooboard does away with the unnecessary size of most balance products which makes it the ultimate travel and commuter friendly fitness product.
