Increased working hours and long commutes mean many of us are time poor. Because of this exercising effectively has never been more important.
Failing to exercise and letting the body and mind fall into disrepair can not only lead to poor health it can also have a negative effect on ones career. We all have time to exercise, even those of us with very little spare time – even if this is only 15 minutes a day. The trick is choosing the correct exercises and equipment to enhance the time we have to train and provide us with the greatest benefits unique to our lifestyles.
Big cities usually provide better career opportunities and salaries. These benefits often come with a serious drawback for many city workers – the commute.
Daily commutes that total anywhere from two to four, five, even six hours in total on top of a full day at work can be the norm for many. This makes it seriously difficult to exercise or maintain an effective exercise programme.
Many people have said to me that they no longer have time for fitness during the week and with Saturday now being called Shatterday – a day of rest and Sunday spent catching up on domestic duties, they are doing very little fitness activities on the weekends either.
Your fitness is important, it can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%. Exercise can even increase neurological function and mental health. For those in stressful jobs that require energy, intelligence and mental toughness, these benefits are especially important.
Your Fitness Time
Certified Personal Trainers know their stuff. They probably spend more time in the gym than a professional athlete and they see many fitness fads come and go. When they use an exercise product with their clients you know it’s going to work. The secret is out. Coaches and personal trainers are already using the Rooboard balance and core board. You can too.
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, perfect for those of us who are time poor.
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
You will transform your core and postural strength, balance, stability and fitness. 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.
