“When Charles Austin showed me his Total Body Board, I immediately told him that he was on to something huge that would have a major impact in the sports and fitness arena. I was one of the first people to utilize the original slide board. After seeing all the things that can be done with Charles’s Total Body Board, I was very impressed with how he took such a simple concept and turned it into something that can be used to make amazing strides in the sports performance, athletic training, rehabilitating injuries and overall fitness. With his Total Body Board, weight lifting exercises, sport specific exercises and rehab exercises for all injuries can be done on one single piece of equipment. I haven’t seen any other piece of equipment that can do everything that can be done on the Total Body Board. One other thing that makes the Total Body Board so great is it gives it’s user the ability to perform a total body, high intensity workout without putting a high level of stress on your joints and tendons. I personally use the Total Body Board and have noticed significant progress in my strength and range of motion.”

“I am very happy to be on the Total Body Board team with Charles! I have a Total Body Board and now I can lower my golf handicap!! We use it at the Athletic Orthopedics & Knee Center. I wish I had the Total Body Board when I played college basketball 55 yrs ago! I would have gotten more than 605 rebounds and 965 points. And jumped much higher than 6’5″ western roll. Then I would have been a pro basketball player rather than an Orthopedic surgeon for 45 years. Every athlete should have the Total Body Board.”
