Hyperactive Core - The SURGE
This session will show you how to build a reactive core by utilising “top down” instability of ever-changing resistance using new innovative training tools – Dynamic Fluid Resistance Devices; The Surge and BOSU Power Stax. Traditional weight training and resistance tools are great for building static strength, but do not always translate to the demands of sport, fitness and life. All of the following physical demands – trying to retain control of the basketball as a defender attempts to strip it away; running on uneven, muddy terrain during an adventure race; holding a wriggling and squirming child; carrying an overloaded bag of groceries; moving a panicked, flailing victim to safety – require a reactive core to control and stabilise the load. Discover new strength training tools some that incorporate dynamic fluid resistance that can meet the demands of real life. This dynamic session will challenge the body to utilise greater effort, and forces it to react and adjust. Improve balance, stability, coordination, fundamental muscular movement and neuromuscular capabilities, movement efficiency and muscular stabilisation for stronger overall movements. This session will also include a short lecture and discussion about functional movement and training the core.
Outcomes of Attending
- Experience the effectiveness of using new innovative tools – The Surge and the new BOSU Power Stax.
- Experience how to improve balance, stability, coordination, postural control and movement efficiency and muscular stabilisation for stronger overall movements.

"Really enjoyed the range of equipment and knowledge."
Miranda Harrison, Activ8 Whangarei
"I've been a Personal Trainer for 21 years and moved to the Gravity Total Gym Systems recently. I attended the Master Class Workshop which I found to be refreshing, informative and fun. As I am a sole operator of a private studio it is most important that I keep up to date with new trends, remain educated, informed, and network with like-minded people. The workshop covered all of the above.
Looking forward to the next one."
