Hydrorider FOW (Fitness On Water) Fitness MatRegular price $950
The Hydrorider FOW (Fitness on Water) Fitness mat — is water fitness fun that will change the way you exercise. It allows you to use water instability to improve your stabilising muscles and core.
FOW is a floating, ridged inflatable mat that allows you to stay on top of the water, much like a surfboard. The durable design consists of three PVC technical layers and one drop stitch core. It is lightweight and easy to carry, safely attaches to the edge of the pool and has an anti-slip surface that provides maximum safety while standing. Arm straps can be attached for extra core load. It deflates for easy transport and storage or it can be stored inflated for easy frequent use.
The continual movement of the water while you are on the FOW creates instability that naturally works the core muscles. This aqua fitness mat is as much a focus challenge as it is an exercise tool. It takes mental and physical concentration — and it’s a lot of fun.
The FOW works the core to improve your posture, balance, flexibility, coordination and mental focus. It helps to build muscle for better overall strength, as well.
The FOW aqua fitness mat adds intensity to exercises you might otherwise do on land, like yoga or pilates. Because it is unstable, it ups the challenge of the various poses.

The instability of the FOW forces you to engage your core to compensate for the movement in the water. That provides an extra challenge as you do other exercises such as yoga or pilates. Core strength helps to support your body in and out of the pool. It improves balance and trains muscles in the lower back, pelvis, hips and abdomen to function as a unit.
FULL BODY WORKOUT
Exercising on the FOW water fitness mat is a full-body workout. You exercise not only your core but your upper and lower body, as well, for improved overall strength. Full-body workouts are optimal for weight loss and to maximise calorie burn.
BURNS CALORIES AND BOOSTS THE METABOLIC RATE
Increasing your metabolic rate will rev your fat-burning furnace, so you have more energy and burn calories faster. .
IMPROVES CARDIO CAPACITY
A FOW workout can improve your cardio capacity for more energised workouts. Cardio capacity is how well your body delivers oxygen to muscles for improved energy.
MENTAL AS WELL AS PHYSICAL WORKOUT
FOW works your mind by forcing you to concentrate on maintaining balance, stabilisation and proper posture. The water destabilises the board, and you must compensate by shifting your balance to maintain stability. .
CHALLENGE YOUR BALANCE
You’ll find when you are on this water fitness mat; you must maintain your balance or take a swim. .
