Description

From the people that brought you BOSU®, meet “Surge,” a tool integrating instability into strength training. Surge harnesses fluid dynamics to produce continuous shifts in fluid position and flow rate to define top-down unstable strength training. Combining water motion with the loading of muscle improves motor control patterns by imposing reactive resistance training. From deep-core musculature out to limb periphery, Surge rapidly builds strength, preventing injuries and producing a body suited for work or play.
