Todd Durkin, owner of the Fitness Quest 10 training facility in San Diego, CA puts himself through a serious workout using the Indo Board and the TRX Suspension Training system. Todd and his staff are experimenting with how Indo Board Balance Trainers will benefit their clients in a number of different applications including; functional balance training, proprioceptive conditioning, improving joint stability, reducing injuries, and increasing overall core strength. After watching Todd put his clients through their workouts it is no wonder why athletes such as Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, LaDainian Tomlinson, Quentin Jammer, Reggie Bush, Carson Palmer and many others trust Todd with their fitness training.
There is no shortage of scientific studies that confirm that proprioceptive neuromuscular training prevents sports-related injuries but a recent review of seven of these “high-quality studies” further confirms the evidence. The specific type of proprioceptive neuromuscular training varies in the studies but they all typically included movements and exercises that can be performed on Indo Board products. This includes, using balance devices, wobble boards, core stability exercises, strength training and agility training just to name a few.

About a year ago Indo Board and Fitness Anywhere discussed the possibility of creating a fusion class that would combine movements and exercises from the Indo Board Balance Trainer and the TRX Suspension Training system. The goal was to create a challenging, functional and fun workout that focused on improving balance, stability and core strength. Thanks to the help of the experts at TRX and our Indo Board Master Trainers Jon Ham and You-Lee Rodriquez, the class was launched at the 2010 IHRSA show. Indo Board and TRX collaborated on this project to create a workout that further challened the TRX user by taking the normally stable contact point of a TRX movement (whether that is the feet or hands) and adding instability to that point. The net result is a workout that provides significantly increased muscular activation along with providing a more dynamic challenge to the balance and stabilization systems of the user. Below are some highlights from the class.
