The Oov is a unique apparatus in its design and ability support functional training. The Oov’s design is constructed to mimic the curves of the spine, to challenge stability and enable mobility and to provide an opportunity to work on balance. We are 3 dimensional beings that are constantly moving in multiple planes and responding to the environment around us. How are you going to train for life and multiple planes of movement if you are seated on a stationary piece of fitness equipment pushing weight in one direction?
The Oov can be used lying down, side lying, seated, kneeling and standing enabling you to experience the challenges associated with working on a three dimensional surface, in multiple planes of motion, with and against gravity. The Oov is also an excellent place to work on slow loaded movement training (training eccentric loads) which is essential for injury prevention and muscle balance. So often people focus on the shortening/concentric muscle contraction looking to bulk up rather than working on the lengthening/eccentric phase of the contraction which needs your attention too.
Mostly, our clients tell us much fun they have using the Oov, how great its makes them feel and how much the want and look forward to using it.
Come laugh, shake and try to find your balance on the Oov!
