Taylor Knox and Paul Hiniker Release SURFfit program

Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 16 January, 2014 - In the effort to do more training in a shorter time, the latest offering from SURFfit utilises the skills of Taylor Knox to show viewers a group of exercises designed for surfing.

After a 20-year collaboration with the ASP World Tour, SURFfit has developed techniques that utilize what they are branding as "FIT: Functional Integrated Training." These strengthening and stabilizing exercises trigger multiple muscle groups to move in a various range of motions.  

The workout progression balances the body along the all three planes of motion: sagittal, coronal, and transverse resulting in increased strength, power, agility, endurance, flexibility and balance.  

The series of exercises is designed to stimulate and stretch muscles through movements that stabilize and strengthen the core. The program claims to get the body into peak physical condition with a series of no/low-impact exercises, that when followed in sequence, give the body a full workout in the least amount of time as possible.

According to SURFfit:

Most exercise videos work only one muscle group at a time. SURFfit activates multiple muscle groups in each exercise that help sculpt powerful lean muscle and boost metabolism.  The movements are designed to help lose weight, improve balance, increase stamina, and tone the body.  By using body weight as resistance, the exercises improve joint mobility and posture to help achieve the toned and powerful body of a professional surfer.

In one 20 minute SURFfit workout, exercise over 15 muscles including the core, deltoids, quadriceps, outer thighs, inner thighs, hip flexors, back, pectorals, hamstrings, glutes, biceps, triceps, hips, rhomboids, rear shoulders, and lower back.

There are no repetitive, pounding, ballistic movements seen in other exercises that can shut muscles down and lead to injury.  Instead, the SURFfit method switches on muscles by stretching them and applying gentle stress.  The progressions utilize instability to challenge balance, stabilization, and control leaving a strong, stretched and streamlined result.

SURFfit works around any schedule.  There are no sweaty gyms, bulky machines, waiting in lines, expensive memberships, class schedules to keep, and no spending hours at the gym.

Designed for today's hectic work and travel schedule, SURFfit can be used by almost anyone, almost anywhere.  But SURFfit isn’t just for surfers and pro athletes.  Anyone who wants to be in the best shape of their life can use these training techniques to help them achieve the best fitness of their life.  With only an exercise ball and some determination, train like the pros.
