As a Coach emphasizing quality movement, strength and running based training, I love using the flex discs for full body movements in mobility, stability and core related challenges for clients and my own workouts! The Flex Disc’s versatility enables me to use them for various running focused exercises as well as for my general fitness population. The mini discs can be used as stability pieces from the feet through the core as well as with many upper body positions to make typical primal patterns more challenging (push, pull, lunge) The standard Flex Disc is an excellent mobility tool for stretching, flexibility and stiff joints no matter our age or ability!
The Flex Disc and mini Flex Disc combine with the array of attachments, has allowed me to train clients and athletes with functional, fitness or performance goals at a level that is unparalleled for mobility, motor control, strength and power. Their versatility, thoughtful design and durability make them a must have in the tool kit for training my clients and for myself.
The Flex Disc is effective with my patients at all stages of healing and injury recovery. In treatment of a patient post ACL reconstruction we used the Flex Disc for early AAROM of knee and dynamic hip stretching. In later stages of rehabilitation, we used the both mini Flex Discs for core and hip stability. We performed exercises in single leg stance and in plank position with dynamic 3D external perturbation rolling the discs. The Flex Discs portability makes it easy to take when I need to perform a home treatment. I highly recommend the Flex Discs to all physical therapists and personal trainers that are geared towards teaching multidirectional, functional based, body weight resisted corrective exercises. These Discs will compliment your treatments very well!!
Flex Disc has helped both myself and students achieve a new level of living inside our bodies. Flex Disc moves you beyond your physical limitations, corrects muscle imbalances and creates a dynamic functional flexibility that cannot be replicated by any other piece of fitness equipment. It has just the right amount of fluidity and resistance to improve your joints, total range of motion and correct nerve entrapment. I use the Flex Disc as a warm up with all populations of students from the very deconditioned to professional athletes. We love it and cannot go back to life with out!
