The AquaBLAST Story
It started with a plastic milk jug...
After injuring my shoulder several years ago playing softball, I started exercising in my pool to help with recovery. One day I filled some plastic milk jugs with water to use as 8 pound resistance weights. After some tinkering, I discovered that combining air, water, and weight caused the jugs to float in a stable and neutrally buoyant position in water, making them ideal for punching and kicking. Soon after, I cobbled together a prototype of an "underwater striking bag device" (the Big Red Tomato) made from materials scraped together from a hardware store -- and AquaBlast® was born!
AquaBlast® is a portable punching bag and exercise device for swimming pools and swim spas. It floats at equilibrium with the surrounding water and incorporates water resistance, drag, and weight to provide you with a full-body, low-impact workout unlike any other aquatic exercise device - plus it's fun landing a flying ninja kick or hearing the THUMP of a well placed punch or kick!
AquaBlast® is portable so it's ideal to take with you to the pool, to fitness centers, and on vacation; it sets up in a minute using swimming pool water and empties out just as fast. Fold it flat and store it in the carry bag when you are done.
Aquatic exercise is well known for reducing muscle and joint stress and easing the pounding your body absorbs from activities like tennis, running, boxing, treadmills. A swimming pool provides a nearly weightless environment to perform a wide range of movements without the stress on muscles, joints, and ligaments. Water also cools your body so you can work out longer and recover faster, plus water actually lowers your heart rate. AquaBLAST® provides low-impact exercise in the weightless environment of a swimming pool.
