Surf Stronger @ 2014 IHRSA Tradeshow

The Surf Stronger crew dropped in to San Diego for the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA) trade show this past weekend.  IHRSA is the top fitness and health club show in the world, and a great way to keep up on the latest trends in health and fitness. At IHRSA you often get to see products and programs as they are revealed for the first time ever. This show illustrates that there are a multitude of ways to workout and stay fit, but there is one common thread — regular exercise (no matter how you choose to go about it) will make you healthier. Check out some highlights.

TRX suspension training and Rip Training:
With their simple, portable, and versatile equipment the guys at TRX are still the best in the business when it comes to suspension training. Beyond their ground-breaking TRX suspension trainer, other equipment includes the Rip Trainer. The Rip Trainer is a great tool to enhance core awareness and to build explosive movement. Both products are perfect for surfers. In addition to their innovative gear they produce informative and inspiring follow along workout video accessible via their site. With ten years in the industry, TRX continues to prove that you can “make your body your machine.” Check out the Surf Stronger TRX Workout, or for more.

Indo Board:
Often imitated, never duplicated, venerable balance training leader, Indo Board, had a strong presence at the show. Touted as the “board sport for everyone, everywhere” and for good reason. The Indo Board crew demo’d various products including their  brand new Yoga Indo Board,which features  four rockers underneath the deck allowing it to move from side to side for a fun and engaging core challenge. Always great to see the Indo Board crew, and talk  training, surfing, … and living!

For the crew that invented that blue dome you see in every fitness club around the world, they continue to grow and innovate. Bosu inventor, David Weck, debuted his latest development, the WeckMethod. The WeckMethod will enhance your athletic and movement ability. Coach Scott got a thorough demonstration on how this program works. Great stuff. See for more.

Assault Fitness Products (AFP):
If you want minimal time and maximum results, jump on an AFP fan bike. For easy reference, the AFP bike is akin to the Schwinn Airdyne. Schwinn made the original fan bike back in the late 70’s and the design has been resurrected and beefed up by AFP. The AFP booth put up a fitness challenge at the show and Surf Stronger’s  Coach Todd crushed it with a best in show effort! I guess that settles the score of the fittest athlete. Cross-Fitter? No. Gymnast? No. Surfer? Yes!  Nice work Todd! For more on Assualt Fitness Products, check out their site.

The crew ended the day with some bodysurfing near the North County office, and cold IPA’s at Union in Encinitas. Surf Stronger promises to always bring the latest and greatest in how to train and help surfers worldwide realize that “better fitness equals better surfing.” Stay healthy, see you in the water.
