About Surf-inspired workout
Brainchild of US based Mike Hartwick, a former professional hockey player who realised that surfing daily gave him better results in his physique and sports performance than regular heavyweight workouts in the gym.
Hartwick along with his partners Sarah Ponn and Bill Ninteau then developed a surfboard that surfs on land and designed a unique surf-style work out on this board called ‘The Surfset’. They built 11 prototypes and travelled the country, offering classes in the Surfset workout method on the boards. They also caught the eye of billionaire investor and Dallas Mavericks owner, Mark Cuban, when they appeared with Surfset on ABC's hit show Shark Tank.
Surfset Fitness aims to shake up the way one look and do work out with the help of a patented surfboard to give participants an intense core workout that fuses pilates, plyometrics and yoga. This group workout helps burn body fat through bursts of high intensity aerobic training, build lean muscle and get a ripped core by maintaining balance on a wobbly surfboard.
A single Surfset session can help burn up to 800 calories and it will work on creating a six-pack powerhouse through instability training that requires immense focus and control. The Surfset Board is adjustable for all levels, even for someone with less than ideal balance and a lower fitness level.
Growing rapidly, the Surfset Fitness now offer this unique fitness programme at over 160 locations across the globe. The workout is designed for all age group people from 6 years to 60 years.
