Close Up With INDO BOARD Brand Ambassador Suzie Cooney

Suzie Cooney, Indo Board Brand Ambassador and Team Rider, NASM Personal Trainer, SUP professional athlete, international SUP coach, the owner of Maliko Run, and longtime friend.

I  recently got to catch up with Indo Board Brand Ambassador and team rider, Suzie Cooney.  Suzie is the definition of a strong, intelligent, and beautiful woman, and I am proud to call her my friend. This is her story…

For the last 21 years, Suzie Cooney has made her home and career on the island of Maui. She is one of the early female pioneers of stand up paddling, a NASM personal trainer for 16 years, a SUP professional athlete and an international SUP coach who trains some of the best paddlers in the world. She specializes in downwind paddling as a coach and professional guide on the infamous North Shore of Maui, known as the Maliko Run. She owns MalikoRun™ .com.

Suzie has been with the Indo Board family since 2009 and continues to develop new and challenging exercises that not only elicits all muscles of the body, but she is also known for incorporating challenging dimensions for the brain.

Her mantra is #TheMindWinsFirst with the theory that if your mind is well trained, confident with laser focus, your body will follow to success.  The same applies to the creative Indo Board exercises she presents. The focus is the task at hand with the intention of separating the body in two dimensions, the upper half and the lower half. If you give the brain multitasks or a specific task, you must trust your lower half will find it’s way.

The  IndoBoard “floater”  (placing the small Indo Flo 12” cushion atop of the 24” Gigante cushion, with an IndoBoard of choice); was developed a few years back to over stimulate the brain with the intention of creating that floating feeling as if you’re pushing your surfboard or stand up paddleboard across the breaking white water of a wave.

“There is NO sweet spot; you literally float. When your brain cannot grasp where or how to keep you upright, it’s a nervous system overload. This is the exact brain stimulation I am trying to create, to force the lower half of the hips, knees, ankles, and feet to get it together and execute successfully and surf away!”

Now her clients are posting clips on Instagram but adding a new twist like Philip Ramstack from Iowa whom she has been SKYPE training for some time.  He is incredibly focused endurance SUP athlete and she is preparing him for a long distance race where his legs will eventually experience discomfort with choppy waters. The intention is to keep his brain incredibly focused on the goal and to ignore the burning in his feet, ankles and legs. Her goal is to break him down and demonstrate “how” his legs and feet will begin to feel at certain mile markers. His brain needs to shift and keep him going. He loves it! 

A couple years back I developed "The Floater" designed to train the brain to quiet the lower part of the body and to recruit the fine muscles around the ankle, knee and hip. This is brain/strength, neuromuscular control and training at the highest level. I've been SKYPE training Philip from Iowa for some time and we've got HUGE SUP paddling goals this summer. Small 12" disc on top of 24" — crazy difficult lots of videos on my website.Best practice and get the exact IndoBoard training gear on my Website 🏄🏼🏄🏼‍♀️in bio ➡️SUZIETRAINSMAUI "Top Gear Picks". There will be a contest soon and the prize is big. #themindwinsfirst #training #workout #inspire #strength #mentaltoughness #fitness #sup #surf #surfing #paddleboarding #standuppaddle #suzietrainsmaui @indo_board @studiosup @malikorun @michaelgervais

A post shared by Suzie Cooney (@suzie_cooney) on

Here is another Indo Board workout for surfers and paddlers to catch more waves or downwind glides.

This is designed to prepare Philip for a few days with Suzie on Maui to do the Maliko Run and to SUP surf. This exercise requires proper foot and leg stabilization in a different plane of motion, light feet, and brain trust. This move will help him excel in his footwork for proper foot placement to catch more waves and glides while downwinding.

The 12 Days of Indo Board – Day 7!

On the 7th Day of Christmas Indo Board Man showed me

The Gigante Cushion!

This Gigante is quite a bit bigger than the IndoFLO cushion. 24 inches versus 14 inches in diameter.

The Gigante cushion adds a very fluid movement and 360 degrees of instability (like you are on the water) under the board. The Gigante cushion is incredibly versatile due to the ability to easily change the amount of air in the cushion to completely change the range of instability you experience. There is no pump required as the Gigante cushion is mouth inflatable and take less than 5 seconds to change the inflation level.

There are several ways of using the Gigante cushion. Wake Board, Wake and Wake Surfers like using the Gigante with the Indo Rocker deck to help them train. SUP riders and surfers enjoy using the Gigante under an Original Indo Board to help simulate the instability encountered when SUPping and Surfing.

Indo Board Man even used an Original on top of the Gigante to train the late football great Junior Seau.

You can choose to use one or two Gigante’s under your surfboard to help you simulate surfing or SUP!

Indo Board Man shows you how to use the Gigante under your surf board or paddle board in this video

You can buy a single Gigante or grab the SUP pack which comes with 2 Gigantes to put under your SUP.

Indo Board Man also uses the Gigante and a weight to train. No Board required for this workout he and Suzie Cooney did.

Indo Board Man and Arthur Hsu demonstrate workouts you can do using the Gigante and the Pro Board (Pro with cushion)

The Gigante cushion is one of the most versatile training aides!

 

Have a Balanced Day
