About

“After just 20 minutes I could feel almost every muscle of my body!!! A great way to have that complete daily workout, especially for those with limited time in their schedules. Loved it, what a clever invention!” Emily B., Pilates Instructor

Some of the press:

“I teach both mat and reformer Pilates as well as Barre, I thought I was in shape but after using the body board for 10 minutes I was sweating and already sore. It was truly humbling to be so challenged and engaged.” Susannah S.,Pilates & Barre Instructor

“Almost anyone can find a way to use [the Da Vinci BodyBoard] if they try.” Ashley, Snow Cream and Syrup

New Design: Our new model will be made from organic Hemp fiber and and Hemp resin. This material is so durable you can smack it with a hammer but it's also light weight. Just incase you were wondering, Hemp products are perfectly legal in the US. You wont feel any funny effects from using the BodyBoard, just a stronger, healthier body!

Certification training: Da Vinci Bodyboard classes are the perfect short, intense, interval training program. Classes are becoming popular all over the country! Miraval Spa, Tucson, AZ says it's their most successful new class launch ever! 

The BodyBoard is great for men too. One of our master trainers, Sarge Brown, demonstrates how you can stretch your fitness to the limits working out to the music of my good friend Heloise Williams of " Heloise and the Savior Faire! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Heloise-and-the-Savoir-Faire/113513295325534

But, these are also the same bands your doctor sends you home with for physical therapy. You can do a workout at any level and at any age on the Da Vinci BodyBoard.  John, 74, shows the ladies how he gets down band dancing on the BodyBoard!

“The BodyBoard uses your muscles like no other exercise – it’s intense but quick. An added bonus, band dancing is so much fun!” Hermine F.

 We have come a long way in a short period of time and we have all the pieces in place to take things to the next level. With a little help we can start producing the new model in just a few months. Please help us reach our goal by clicking the "back this project" button at the top of the page and by spreading the word.

Risks and challenges

There are always risks involved with business expansion. You have to do it at the right time and with the right plan in place. We have a great team working to help us make this transition.

Manufacturing: We have an expert tooling specialist to create the mold and to handle production. He worked in China for more than 10 years, mass producing products in this organic plant fiber material. The BodyBoard is the perfect application for this material. The manufacturing plant is right here in the US which makes quality control and inventory management much more accurate.

Fulfillment: We use MSI in Morrisville, VT. They provided excellent customer service and manage all packaging and shipping. We plan to add a west coast facility in early 2015.

Marketing and PR: We are working with Key Priority Management and WIN PR. They specialize in fitness products and personalities. Together we have mapped out the next 4 phases to support the expansion.

Although it's impossible to predict all scenarios, we have a well constructed business plan and lots of momentum. Help us get started and we'll do the rest!
