MIAMI, Dec. 30, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As people prepare to ring in the New Year, Lynx Fitness wants everyone to consider adding core fitness to their resolutions for better health in 2016.
"When it comes to fitness, too many people make unrealistic New Year's resolutions that they simply won't be able to keep — like getting six-pack abs," explained Lynx Fitness CEO Sheldon Burnett. "A much more realistic resolution would be to improve your overall core fitness in 2016, which could ultimately lead to better health, a longer life and maybe even those six-pack abs."
While most people think of abdominals when we discuss core fitness, the term actually refers to multiple sets of muscles that come together to stabilize our spine. They give our bodies balance, stability and protection. They even help us with breathing.
The Miami-based Lynx Fitness, which is best known for its innovative friction-based Lynx Board, is making its fitness experts available to print, Internet and television media outlets to discuss the importance of core fitness and provide demonstrations of the low-impact Lynx Board.
Lynx Fitness experts include U.S. Olympic swimmer Mike Alexandrov, celebrity trainer Ryan Haake, and elite fitness trainers T.J. Hoban and David Morin along with many others.
Unlike other fitness devices, the Lynx Board offers full 360-degree range of motion and provides a total body workout without the need for complicated routines or costly add-on components.
With more than 800 specially designed training techniques that target all major muscle groups, the Lynx Board's patented friction surface uses its surface technology with body weight to provide counter resistance as the user glides in rhythmic precision along the specially engineered surface.
"The Lynx Board is the perfect low-impact solution for people who want to improve their core fitness," added Lynx Fitness Chief Operating Officer Marc Yahr. "Since there is virtually no impact to the body, training with the Lynx Board is also advantageous for people recovering from injury as well as those suffering from chronic joint problems such as osteoarthritis."
Released in the U.S. and Canada in October 2015, the home/gym model retails for $329 while the Lynx Travel Board retails for $199. Weighing just 6 pounds, the travel edition fits comfortably in the overhead bins of most airplanes. Both models are available with free shipping at LynxFitness.com.
Lynx Fitness is donating 10 percent of the net holiday sales of the Lynx Board to the American Heart Association. That donation includes sales that occur between Nov. 27, 2015 (Black Friday) and February 15, 2016 (the day after Valentine's Day).
