MIAMI, May 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The innovative Lynx Board, which has been winning accolades from people with joint and muscle conditions, Olympic athletes and even one of America's oldest NFL franchises, The Pittsburgh Steelers, will be featured in an upcoming segment of "Voices In America" hosted by legendary actor James Earl Jones.
The segment highlights the importance of building and maintaining core fitness with a focus on the relatively new phenomena of friction training and the Lynx Board.
"Lynx Fitness is honored to share our expertise from the apex of the friction training movement," explained Lynx Fitness CEO Sheldon Burnett. "Part of our mission is to educate the public about the benefits of core stability for improving posture and countering the effects of poor posture and back problems."
"Voices In America" specializes in 30-minute and short-form Public Television stories highlighting specific industries and topics.
There are a number of advantages to friction training, according to the segment that will air at different dates and times throughout the United States. First and foremost is that it only takes 20 minutes for a total body workout. It's also low impact and can be done in the privacy of one's own home as time permits.
This makes friction training well suited for people who wouldn't otherwise be able to go to a gym, people recovering from an injury and people with chronic joint problems such as osteoarthritis, the program concluded.
"Developed by European athletes, the Lynx Board is truly unique in that it offers full 360-degree range of motion and won't damage joints," added Lynx Fitness President Marc Yahr. "We are delighted to be part of a project that features one of the most recognizable actors in America discussing one of the most important fitness trends in recent memory."
With more than 800 specially designed training techniques that target all major muscle groups, the Lynx Board's patented friction surface uses body weight to provide counter resistance as the user glides in rhythmic precision along a specially engineered surface.
While most people think of abdominals when they discuss core fitness, the term actually refers to multiple sets of muscles that come together to stabilize the spine. They provide balance, stability and protection. They even help with breathing.
Team USA Olympic swimmer Mike Alexandrov recently incorporated the Lynx Board into his training regimen ahead of the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro while the Pittsburgh Steelers adopted the Lynx Board as a low-impact training solution that will strengthen players' all-important core and give them greater balance, mobility and stability on the field.
Lynx Fitness experts interviewed for the segment include elite fitness model David Morin and high-energy health and fitness trainer Carmel Rodriguez.
The Home/Gym model of the Lynx Board retails for $329 while the Lynx Travel Board retails for $229 and fits comfortably in the overhead bins of most airplanes. Both models are available with free shipping at LynxFitness.com.
