Hey everyone!! Have we told you about our other project Flow Motion? Well if not, then we will!
Flow Motion in it's basic form is a part of our company that produces inflatable mats used for indoors or outdoor venues for aquatic fitness and balance. As our production of inflatable boards began to grow and we saw the insatiable need for transporting boards to and from different locations with ease, a new area of fitness came into our view. From there, we started using our inflatable boards inside, and more specifically in pools across the coast. This had moderate success and those who tried our inflatable boards in the pool were for the most part, ecstatic just to be standing up on one. However, we thought there was more to it.
We started having ideas about a mat that could be used for an all-around purpose. Something that would challenge balance, increase cardiovascular health, could be used for yoga, and accommodate every body type and skill level. And with this idea in mind, our fitness mats were created!
They feature the best parts of our inflatable boards, with a newly designed shape to fit into swim lanes and other tight sports a board cannot. They are crafted out of extremely durable, military-grade materials with drop stitch construction which allows it to withstand daily use in aquatic fitness. The platform measures at 7'10''x35''x6'' to provide amply stability for everyone. But not too much stability! We want our fitness freaks to get a bit of a challenge.
As the early models came in, we drove up and down the East Coast in search of YMCA's and other public pools in need of something fun and interesting for their patrons. And what we discovered was beyond our expectations. Not only did people enjoy messing around on them in the water, but they looked forward to the challenge of doing burpees, jumping jacks, push-ups, and other moves on the mat in order to increase their fitness. And if you've ever been on one of our mats yourself, you know fully well how difficult they can be! And how much they can increase your fitness abilities incrementally.
They started to gain popularity and so we started to expand our thinking. What next? Well, we landed on our yoga pods. This pod connects mats to the outside, allowing participants full access to the teacher standing on the center during class. They can be used indoors, or as most of our early participants enjoyed, outdoors! The sound of the natural world, while floating on water, turns out, enhances the experience of yoga a thousand percent. Who would have thought? ;)
We knew we had something interesting so we kept knocking on doors and getting people to try it. And they did! And they loved it. From there we crafted our own training, programs, and spread it up and down the coast to various YMCA locations as well as others. And we cannot be happier with the results. Flow Motion has become a very essential portion of our dream of spreading the water lifestyle to those who are looking for it.
