At Vicore we are not looking to the future, we are creating it.
It's a stepper. It's a bench. It's the best surface ever devised for crunches and pushups. It's an air-filled, core-busting, balance-building machine. It's going to be your go-to fitness tool for achieving the results you want. It's the shape of things to come.
The Terra Core embodies everything we have learned about getting and staying truly fit.
What's our definition of truly fit? Great question. It's far more than bulking up. It's about developing a body that is well balanced in strength, coordination, agility, and stamina, which are all things we begin to lose as we age.
Because of its unique shape and surface, the Terra Core provides the best platform yet for developing all these attributes. It allows you to perform millions (okay, at least hundreds) of exercises, which engage not only every muscle group in your body, but boost your brain as well. Neural synapses are engaged when you're fully focused and there won't be any daydreaming when you're on the Terra Core. It demands your full attention, and it will reward you in ways you didn't know were possible.
The Terra Core is a significant advancement in the science of fitness.
It's the the only piece of equipment you'll need to get in the best shape of your life, whether you decide to party with the Terra Core alone, or bring in some accessories like resistance bands and free weights.
With the Terra Core, you will be able to isolate and develop any part of your body that you see fit (or should we say not fit).
The secret lies in its air-filled surface, which provides a safe but unstable platform.
Utilizing infrared thermal imaging technology, you can see first hand how Vicore's patented unstable surface warms up the core (okay, freakin’ melts it). White denotes where the muscles are the hottest, therefore being worked the most. Notice how the core is engaged in all exercises with Vicore.
This surface is so effective it's impossible to even sit on the Terra Core without feeling your muscles fire and engage, right down to your core.
This system also molds and contours to every body type, making it the most comfortable and ergonomic piece of fitness equipment you'll likely ever use. You are literally floating on air, and thus there are no pressure points or skeletal strains, only smooth, fluid motions.
The Terra Core was designed around technology, but based on results. As luck would have it, we crossed paths with a Scientist named Alex Grey who had developed a system for measuring muscle activity called Somaxis (you can see some of his work on TED Talks). Alex was also heavily into fitness and was intrigued by what we were doing, we all decided it would be pretty interesting to test out The Vicore Concept using his technology.
The results far exceeded our mental expectations to say the least, however, matched perfectly with what we were experiencing physically. Just as we stated previously, Vicore equipment engaged and fired 4 to 6 times as many muscle groups than if your performed the exact same exercise on traditional strength equipment.
The Terra Core is a unique and portable tool that will allow you to reach and exceed your fitness goals.
Whatever exercise you decide to do, the unique surface and shape demands the engagement of core muscles, which in turn enhances agility, balance, and coordination.
The Terra Core will help you find muscles you never knew you had, and the more muscles you use, the more calories are required to fuel them. And when you're burning fuel, you're burning fat.
Yes, the surface is great and the shape is just right, however, every once in a while we like to show our parents and old teachers that we are capable of overachievement, so we've designed every square inch of the Terra Core to have a useful purpose. When you flip it over the bottom side offers a multitude of features as well.
The Power Grips on the bottom convert the Terra Core into the best push-up machine ever conceived. Unique angles combine with instability allow you to isolate chest and shoulder muscles like never before.
Grab on to these babies and start firing your lats, triceps, biceps, shoulders, and core. These also change up your your stabilizing synapses from front to back and from left to right. Plus these bars also make it easy to transport your new Terra Core.
So if you are one of those trouble makers who like to take things up a notch and do "some freestyling" (helmet not included), the entire bottom is a virtual playground of possibilities. The surface is specially textured to keep your feet in place when things start to get agro. Please Note: These are advanced movements, which take practice and should be performed with a spotter.
Inspired by the Romans (we hear they were really into fitness, or was it architecture?), we call these "Band Bridges" and they are designed to keep resistance bands in place no matter where they are positioned. They also increase the lifespan and integrity of the bands so they remain safe and useful.
So you've decided to back our campaign and helped to make the world a fitter place. Now what? Well because you have demonstrated what a benevolent and caring person you are, we have decided to award you with your own personal trainer.
Just scan the QR code on the side of the Terra Core with your smart phone and 'viola', like magic (or technology, you choose), every exercise you could ever imagine is right at your finger tips. Want to build your abs, just scan, your back, just scan, your legs, well you get the picture. The best part is, this resource will be constantly updated with new content so you never plateau.
The Terra Core's weight and dimensions:
The Terra Core also offers the following additional features:
Great design has always been our passion. If the truth be known, we would probably pay for the privilege to take pen to paper. We are 'always' thinking about new ways to help people be their best. The Terra Core Project has been one of our favorites, as it has shown us firsthand the impact good design can have on the lives of individuals. We are extremely excited to share it's benefits with the world.
We have been designing and building fitness equipment for quite sometime now. Our products have always been engineered with the knowledge that they will be used in one of the most extreme environments known to man: public gyms and health clubs.
If you want to find weak links in the design, simply put your product in a place where hundreds of people a day will use it and abuse it. The Terra Core was made specifically for this kind of abuse. We have run them over, beat them hammers (really) and tried everything we know to simulate and accelerate thousands of cycles of use. After we finished, we felt strongly that we could put a lifetime warranty on them without problem. But there's no reason to show off, so we're offering a two year unconditional warranty for the base and two years of coverage for the air surface as well.
Once you pledge, hang on, because your life will begin to change dramatically. Each day you will wake up with the knowledge that, in no time at all, you will be the proud owner of one of the most effective tools ever designed for making you stronger, not to mention more coordinated and agile than you ever dreamed possible.
All kidding aside, we truly believe this is one of the best ways ever to get strong, burn calories and accomplish any goal you may have, when it comes to being fit and feeling great. We have also done everything possible to provide the people who are helping make this become a reality the best value possible. So chose your reward, then sit back, knowing the good you have done not only on our behalf but yours as well. That's what we like to call a Win-Win.
So there you have it . . . . We have told you every reason that we can think of as to why you should back this campaign. However, as you may of noticed, it was all about "the product". Therefore, we would also like to wax a bit philosophical regarding ideology as well. What an incredible concept and opportunity Kickstarter and crowdfunding offers to small companies — startups and individuals alike — anyone with an idea to start the next big thing.
However, contrary to what most may think, it is far more than about raising capital. It is the belief that platforms like this empower the masses to dream whatever they want, while at the same time, reach out and attract like-minded people to share with. The days of investment wealth being held by a small few, only to be distributed to a small few, are over.
Whether it is, us or someone else's idea we must make sure that crowdfunding is not a passing fad, but becomes an integral part of how business is done and capital is raised — breaking down the walls between the "haves" and "have nots". It is the purest representation of a truly free market ever developed.
Thanks for helping us turn our ideas into reality . . . .
