Through the years, fitness enthusiasts and those looking to get in better shape have tried every device possible. Some have provided a gateway to better health, and some have just been a bust.
The Hedstrom Surge is looking to be the next big thing when it comes to an exercise device.
It doesn't appear real high tech, but this water-filled device is made to the perfect specifications that can help you and your body get where it needs to be.
AFAA certified trainer Casey Stutzman is singing the praises of the Surge, and it he says it works because of one thing we see and use everyday.
"Water is incredibly unpredictable, explains Stutzman. :When it starts to move, it flows- it never goes in the same direction twice."
Stutzman says the water offers resistance, and it will give you a workout that you've never experienced before. When filled with various amounts of water, the Surge will weigh from 10 to 65 pounds, so you can change up your workout routine.
"This is living resistance," adds Stutzman. "Think of holding a child- it's constantly squirming and moving and you have to constantly adjust."
The Surge makes you adjust, just like to you have adjust in life.
First responders know this so well, so Hedstrom must be on to something.
"In our daily lives we rarely deal with moving stable, balanced objects. Whether it’s a police officer taking down a suspect, a mother picking up her child, or a firefighter controlling a hose, almost nothing in life is stable and balanced. Therefore, exercise forms like Surge that can mimic unbalanced movements, enhance performance," said Mike Kelly, CFO, Hedstrom Fitness. "Originally developed for emergency responders, firefighters, military and police, we saw tremendous applications to the fitness world. In fact, when we launched Surge to fitness professionals during the August Idea World Fitness Convention, the feedback was incredibly positive."
If it is is good enough for emergency responders, it's good enough for us.
