The Perfect Athlete
Every office has at least one athlete. Some arrive in lycra, others race to the gym at lunch time or pound the streets. The perfect present for these office dynamos can actually be used in the office.
One of the UK’s best kept secrets. The Rooboard™ balance board is being used by entrepreneurs and business leaders alike to boost productivity by shortening their workout times and increasing physical gains.
The compact size and unique design features enable the Rooboard to be used for exercising in almost any location at any time of day. These short ‘muscle hacks‘ have positively disrupted the way many people approach their fitness training and schedule their workout sessions.
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.
The Rooboard has many different exercise options including: core, balance, sports specific training, fitness and rehabilitation.

Designed in the United Kingdom by a former triathlete, fitness trainer, health club manager and life-long surfer. The Rooboard was needed to fulfil specific training requirements within tight parameters. It had to produce solid results, be extremely durable (in order to take a thrashing) and be easily transportable.
It also 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.
- 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. 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 ground/floor and the fulcrum point against the bottom of the deck. The use of concave and convex surfaces between the pads and deck create the perfect instability for balance and core training.
