MIAMI, Nov. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Notable Olympic swimmer Mike Alexandrov of Team USA and Lynx Fitness partner on the company's flagship Lynx Board. The innovative, low-impact friction device will be a key element of Alexandrov's training regimen in preparation for his events in the upcoming 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.
"The Lynx Board can give everyone, even elite athletes, a total body workout in just minutes a day," observed Alexandrov, who competed for his native Bulgaria in the 2004 Athens and 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic Games. "Swimmers rely on a strong core to be competitive at the international level and the Lynx Board does a great job preparing these critical muscles for success."
Alexandrov swam for Northwestern University from 2003 to 2007 and in March 2007, he set a USA National Record in the 100-yard breaststroke at the NCAA Division I Swimming and Diving Championships. He is a five-time American Record Holder and in 2014, was inducted into The Northwestern Athletics Hall of Fame.
For Team USA, Alexandrov won a gold medal in the 4 x 100 Meter Medley at the 2010 Dubai and 2012 Istanbul World Championships. In addition, he is a World University Silver medalist for Team USA and two-time gold medalist for Team USA World Championship.
"We at Lynx Fitness are committed to offering the next generation of core stability, mobility, balance, control and coordination to our clients," explained Lynx Fitness CEO Sheldon Burnett. "We are delighted to have an athlete of the caliber of Mike Alexandrov not only on the Lynx Fitness team but training with the Lynx Board as he represents the United States in the most elite sporting competition on the planet."
The Lynx Board offers full 360-degree range of motion and will not damage joints. With more than 800 specially designed training techniques that target all major muscle groups, the patented friction surface uses body weight to provide counter resistance as the body glides in rhythmic precision along a specially engineered surface.
Due to the resistance-controlled friction, there is virtually no impact on the body which makes training with the Lynx Board advantageous for people recovering from injury as well as those with chronic joint problems such as osteoarthritis. The board's technology is supported by both utility and design patents.
Released in the U.S. and Canada in October 2015, the home/gym model retails for $350 while the Lynx Travel Board retails for $210. 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.
