About

A micro fitness product that changes the way we exercise
A micro fitness product that changes the way we exercise

 WARNING

We don't pay fitness models to promote the Rooboard. What you are about to see are real people, with normal jobs who love fitness and do the best things for their physical health.

The Problem

Our surfing fitness group in London required several different pieces of exercise equipment for a comprehensive core, balance and fitness workout. Most of this equipment was too heavy or bulky to transport during the daily commute and many pieces would damage indoor flooring.

The Solution

Our inventor, Mason Gilmour-Platt, a life long surfer and fitness expert, designed a single product that would replicate the exercises performed on multiple pieces of equipment. He created a product that is indestructible and compact enough to fit in a backpack with room for a laptop and your lunch. In doing so he also created a unique micro fitness product that is transforming the core strength of its users.

One of Londons best kept secrets. The Rooboard™ is being used by entrepreneurs and business leaders alike to boost productivity by shortening their workout times and increasing physical gains. It has been an underground hit in the UK and US, selling more than 1500 units, mainly through word of mouth.

The compact size and unique design features enable the Rooboard to be used 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.

From balance board to fitness platform and slant board. The Rooboard has many different exercise variations.

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.

Design Features

 1.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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

Exercise Options

The Rooboard has many different exercise options. From single exercises targeting a specific muscle group to full HIIT and VIIT sessions. Some of your options include:

  • Core Balance
  • Sports Specific Training 
  • Postural 
  • Rehabilitation 
  • High and Variable Intensity Interval Training 

Please visit the Rooboard YouTube channel for exercise playlists.

Your Colour Choices & Rewards

Two choices; ocean blue or stealth black. Your Rooboard also comes in a lime green carry bag with two balance pads. Please note that the second generation Rooboards will not feature the large central graphic on the current model.

The Rooboard by Surfgym is using Kickstarter to increase reach with a larger production run to help reduce distribution costs and introduce a new colour choice

Risks and challenges

The Rooboard has already been brought to market and had its first limited production run. All manuafcturing and distribution pathways are in place.

This is a no risk campaign to offically launch the Rooboard in the United States and improve the core strength, balance, fitness and exercise options of as many fellow fitness and wellbeing enthusiasts as possible.

We designed the Rooboard to be unbreakable under normal use and it comes with a lifetime warranty.

Please help us share our product with the world and receive your second generation Rooboard in August 2016.
