San Marcos, TX (PRWEB) October 16, 2014
After years of development, based on his career and athletic training, Gold Medal Olympic athlete, Charles Austin has launched The Total Body Board (TBB) which is available now!
Total Body Board is a single piece of fitness equipment that is safe for all levels of fitness and gets great results. There is no other single piece of fitness equipment on the market that has the functionality and is as multi-faceted. TBB allows for all types of exercise and unlimited combinations including cardio, strength, core and balance training. Athletes can practice their sport/drills (golf, basketball et al,) and build strength performing the actual movements done in competition and sports. One or more persons can use the board at once and everyone using TBB can get a complete total body workout.
The TBB measures 10’ Long X 3” Tall X 3’ 8” Wide when laid out for training, and 5’5” Long x 6” Tall x 3’8” Wide when folded for storage or portability. The TBB utilizes resistance bands to intensify any workout. The bands challenge the muscles as the core is stabilized resulting in increased strength in targeted muscle groups. Up to eleven people can train on the board at once which works great for circuit and group training classes, as well as individual workouts at fitness centers, at home, at the park or on the beach.
Consumers are now able to safely perform and get the same workouts that athletes use to keep their bodies in great shape and the Total Body Board is also great for rehabilitating and preventing injuries.
Charles Austin is a certified personal trainer (National Endurance Sports Trainers Association) and the owner of So High Sports & Fitness in Texas, with over 25 years of experience in the fitness industry. Coaching himself, he was a three time Olympian (1992, 1996, 2000) and was the high jump gold medalist at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, Ga. He is the current Olympic (7’10”) and American (7’10 ½”) high jump record holder, 2-Time World Champion, World Cup Champion, nine time US National Champion (Six time consecutive U.S. Outdoor) track and field high jump champion and NCAA champion. He was inducted into the United States Track & Field Hall of Fame in 2012. In July of 2014, Charles set a new Master’s 45 to 49 High Jump World Record.
As a professional high jumper, Austin worked through hardships in his career. When a debilitating knee injury cost him a medal at the 1992 Olympics, he was told his high jumping career was over by four different doctors. After having surgery in 1993 where almost half of his patellar tendon on his jumping leg was removed, Austin was forced to battle back on his own. Using resistance bands and the slide board, he found creative ways to train himself and thus the idea for The Total Body Board came to fruition.
Charles returned to the Olympics and won the gold medal in 1996. Overall, Charles competed for 15 years as a professional athlete and in 2001 he entered into the sports performance and personal training industry. He has trained NBA players John Starks, David Robinson and Allan Houston as well as other professional athletes. Over 90% of the high school athletes who worked with him have gone on to compete at the college level. Charles also works with clients wanting to rehabilitate their injuries, improve their level of fitness and/or lose weight and inches. One of his clients lost a hundred pounds in nine months utilizing Charles’s training methods.
Charles Austin's Gold Medal Olympic record winning jump of 7' 10", still stands today.
