Indo Board is proud to announce the recent endorsement by Skills Active of their Indo Board Trainer Course in the UK. This official approval means the course now carries 8 REPs points and is open to any fitness professional with a minimum Level 2 Gym Instruction or Exercise to Music qualification.
Indo Fitness, the UK fitness industry’s arm of Indo Board Europe, is working in conjunction with Academy of Exercise Studies, a UK based fitness industry training provider, to promote the Indo Board as a versatile personal training and group exercise tool.
Adriano Roldan, Director of Indo Board Europe, said “We want the Indo Board Balance Trainer to be looked upon as an integral part of the UK Fitness Industry by offering a fun and challenging core based workout to a wide spectrum of individuals.”
The Indo Board Balance Trainer has been used for many years by elite professional board sports athletes (surfers, snowboarders, wakeboarders, water skiers and skateboarders, etc.) as well as athletes from all main stream sports that utilise balance training as a key element in their functional fitness programs. The creator, Hunter Joslin, a lifelong surfer from the USA, needed a device that would stimulate the neuromuscular system on days when it wasn’t possible to get in the water. The Indo Board design was conceived in 1975, has evolved far beyond surfing, turning into the most versatile balance trainer in the market place.
This Skills Active endorsement now puts the Indo Board Balance Trainer on the fitness map as a must have piece of equipment. Liam Johnson, Director of Academy of Exercise Studies and qualified Physiotherapist, suggests “The Indo Board Balance Trainer offers so much variety to the trainer and participant, it’s not just another wobble board. The versatility that the cushion, roller and different shaped decks provides means an Indo Board can be used for remedial exercise right through to professional athletes enhancing sporting performance. It’s rare to find a piece of equipment that can offer the Personal Trainer so many options when it comes to programme design and exercise selection”.
Roldan said “We are excited to be rolling Indo Board Trainer courses out across the UK and Europe. We will be working with Academy of Exercise Studies to ensure gym operators, Personal Trainers and participants are properly instructed in how to get the most out of the equipment”.

The next course is running in Bournemouth on Saturday 19th November, spaces for this course are already limited due to the high demand so for further details, or to find out where future courses will be happening, please phone 0845 835 0277.
