•The T-BOW® offers a long list of benefits that
cannot be achieved when performing the same exercises
on your basic step. This can be attributed to the meticulous creation of
the T-BOW® which was
developed over 10 years at the University of Zurich (Switzerland). The
Swiss creator of the T-BOW®,
Sandra Bonacina, a physical therapist, exercise physiology professor,
respected gymnastics & sport
coach, former NYC dancer and aerobic dance champion truly has invented
the ?Swiss Army Knife of
•Aerobic step exercises on the T-BOW® simultaneously trains your core
due to its convex/curved shape
that a flat surface or step cannot. The multi-functionality of the
T-BOW® permits the integral training of
coordination, cognitive and conditional capacities unlike a flat step or
• The special elements of exercises with the T-BOW® are based on the
development of integrated and
multi-plan movements that imply joint acceleration, stabilization and
deceleration, with the intention to
improve the ability of movement, the strength of the core zone and the
neuromuscular efficiency, among
•Due to this scientifically developed and tested curvature, T-BOW® step
exercises not only train the
cardiovascular system and burn calories like a flat step but since more
fitness capacities are incorporated
and more muscles are working, more calories are burned when using the
•Another key element of T-BOW® training is that the curvature
specifically trains the stabilizing muscles
and proprioception of the ankle, knee and hip joints. This leads to
healthier joints, improved balance and
better fall or tripping avoidance skills.
•The T-BOW® simultaneously trains one's balance (both static and dynamic
balance), which dually trains
your abdominal and core muscles. Furthermore, T-BOW® can effectively
train multiple fitness capacities
(strength, endurance, balance, coordination and flexibility) which a
flat step cannot.
•Compared to a flat step, the T-BOW® offers more variations, skill
levels and possibilities with its variable
foot support positions. By placing the foot at different heights and
slopes, the degree of challenge, joint
and proprioception are varied. Certain exercises even support accurate
and bilateral control of the foot.
•The increased joint health can also be attributed to the T-BOW®s design
and materials which provide a
surface that is more reactive, responsive and cushions the joints better
than a flat step or floor surface.
These elements provide a healthy elasticity that adapts very quickly to
changes in inertia and reactivity.
This turns impacts into healthy training for the joints and muscles.
•The T-BOW® further has exercises available that the classical step does
These include lateral jumps in slope and stair position as well as all
exercises. Outside of aerobic exercises the T-BOW® also supports a
strength training regimen for both the anterior and posterior core.
