What is the Terra-glide?
Well let us start by telling you, it is far more than a piece of 'exquisitely designed fitness equipment'. It is an Idea and an attitude that says, "I got this, I have everything I need (the will, the desire and the tools) to turn me into "my ideal self". The Terra-Glide is a fitness laser, which forces the user to engage both their mind and body with extra ordinary focus on the most important aspects of looking and feeling great: Balance, Strength and Agility. The Terra-Glide has the same characteristics you would look for in any partner. Incredibly interesting, brings out the best in you, yet pushes back when you're out of line:) and is a lot of fun to spend time with.
Why do I need a Terra-GLIDE?
Two words: Functional Fitness. This is the fountain of youth and will help you engage at a higher level, when it comes to life's everyday activities. It is a strong core. It is energy to spare at the end of the day. It is balance and coordination. It is being more athletic (because life is a sport). It is being aerobically fit, mentally fit and emotionally fit. This is what the Terra-Glide was designed to do and will help you achieve these objectives better than anything else on the market.
The Mind-Body Connection.
The Terra-Glide is the most dynamic piece of fitness equipment ever designed. From its air-filled surface, to its radical multidimensional wheels. The Terra-Glide is always changing it up and challenging you both physically and mentally. Engaging more muscles and cerebral tissue is what the Terra-Glide loves to do.
You will see us talk about connecting the mind and body a few times (ok, more like 30 or 40) throughout this site and our other materials, because it is such a vital part of being healthy. Every time you do a new or unique motion, you cause a new neuron to fire. If it fires frequently enough, it will create a new neural pathway - and the more of those you create, the more malleable and healthy your brain stays. Nothing fires new neurons and core muscles like quick twitches and stabilization. Twitchy-Glide?? Sort of has a nice ring..
It Takes a Village.
Humans are social by nature and it is this urge to unite that has allowed our species to do such great things. Simply put, collaboration equals achievement. With that in mind we have done everything we can to bring Terra-Glide owners and users together. It is this uniting of like-minded people that has led to so much creativity, motivation and fun. Feeling sort of down and not wanting to workout today? No worries, upload one of our highly motivated trainers and let them get you going. Looking to get to the next level in a specific sport or activity? Awesome, chances are there are tons of people who are trying to do the same and they can be reached through our streaming channels with a click of the remote.
However, it is important to remember that "one-sided relationships" never work out. That being said, we ask that you also post and share your experiences, creativity and overall journey with others in the tribe. You just never know whose life you may touch!
If we had to sum it all up in 15 seconds or less, Ready, Go..... You need to step out of your comfort zone and then stay out. Both your brain and your body get stronger when you experience new challenges and movements. You also gain confidence and lose weight while trying new things. It's what we call a "Win - Win". Having more Balance, Strength (both core and extremity) and Agility will allow you to function at a much higher level, which will lead to even more confidence and weight loss (wow, does the giving ever stop:).
Simply put, the Terra-Glide is the best tool available for achieving this.
Lastly, you are not alone. We are going to hook you up, call you out and introduce you to thousands of folks who may be at different points in their journey, but are all headed in a similar direction. It will be both motivating and hard as Hell, but possibly one of the most satisfying things you will ever do.
What is the Terra-Glide?
It's a Stepper. It's a Bench. It's the best surface ever devised for crunches and your pushups will never be the same. It's an air-filled, core building, multifaceted balance machine. It's the most versatile piece of home exercise equipment ever developed. It is, THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME. We have a hard time leaving the status quo alone around here, particularly when it doesn't make sense. Let’s face it. There is an optimal shape for everything. Tires work best when they're round, tables work best when they are flat. Things that go against your body work best when they are shaped as such. Balls were meant for kicking, bouncing, and telling your boss to get bent. NOT for exercising. The surface area is small, and it wants to roll away from you (they’re balls, that’s what they do). Not to mention, have you ever tried to stand on or do a crunch on a half ball?? Certainly, they do not roll but (and this is a BIG but) they still lack space, and dare we say, imagination. The Terra-Glide offers it all. Ergonomics, versatility, shape, the ability to accessorize (bands are our favorite) durability and enough real estate to warrant its own zip code.
Why do I need a Terra-Glide?
The Terra-Glide is a culmination of everything we know about training and strengthening the human machine. Moving from a hard surface to a soft dynamic surface while working out yields more efficiency and more benefits when performing the same movements. Exercises performed on a hard surface are two-dimensional by nature. The Terra-Glide engages core stabilizer muscles, adding a third dimension to every movement. We have performed independent studies demonstrating 4 times as many muscles being engaged on the Terra-Glide’s dynamic surface than the same exercise does on a hard, flat two-dimensional surface.
The Mind-Body Connection.
There is far more to fitness than shredded abs and big guns. We work out to stay young and feel great. That starts by connecting the mind and the body together. That is the foundation of functional fitness and it is what the Terra-Glide is all about! Every movement engages the body's natural stabilizers which gets your brain firing on multiple planes. While you are working on your midsection, your brain is working overtime, firing countless new synapses with every movement. All this activity keeps you agile, more athletic, and this newfound coordination will make everyday activities easier while keeping your energy levels at their peak.
It Takes a Village.
Let's face it, changing old habits is hard. However, when you buy a Terra-Glide, you are getting far more than some plastic half ball filled with air! Terra-Glide is far more than a company that makes insanely cool ways to achieve your goals. We are a lifestyle company that consists of thousands of people (our Tribe) who are there to teach and encourage you to start looking and feeling awesome on all levels. At the risk of sounding a bit cliché, fitness is a journey and we will offer you help and support the entire way and soon you will be helping others achieve the same.
You made it to the part where we commend you for your desire to learn about better ways to do things. The Terra-Glide truly does represent a huge advancement in the world of fitness. The cool thing is, you don’t have to sit there and talk about it or try and convince people, this is one of those rare times when you simply have to try it. Twenty seconds into your first exercise and you will instantly know that we are telling you the truth. The day after your first workout you will know that you found a hidden reserve of lactic acid. It really is a new way to work out that involves every physical capability that human beings possess.
Here is a quick review of the upside to using the Terra-Glide in your workout. Terra-Glide's patented dynamic surface provides an inherently unstable, yet extremely safe interface between body and equipment. This instability forces you to engage core muscles with every movement. The Terra-Glide weighs an incredible 28 pounds yet can support over 5,000 lbs. Its proprietary anti-burst technology is the most effective ever developed. For the record, a physio ball weighs about 15 ounces. It is very squirrelly, and loves to burst, leaving you with a dumbbell in the forehead and a few gaps in your grill. Performing the same exercises as you normally would on a Terra-Glide increases balance, core strength, neural synapse, and agility.
Using the Terra-Glide forces you to slow down your movements which accentuates the eccentric part of the movement. This is the most effective way to gain strength and reach muscle fatigue. It is the soul mate of resistance bands, which allows you more control and improves form, also a vital element in realizing gains. The Terra-Glide molds and forms to every individual's unique body shape providing the best support ever offered in the fitness category. The exceptional ergonomics dramatically reduce the chance of skeletal injury caused by excessive pressure. With the Terra-Glide, you are literally floating on air thus, there are no pressure points. Only smooth and fluid motions so you build muscle, not scar tissue. The Terra-Glide is made from the very highest quality commercial grade raw materials available.
