"Best thing I've ever bought"
At the GoGreen show In Auckland this year a woman walked past our stand and called out " Best thing I've ever bought!" so we asked her if she would mind writing a few words for this page. This is what she said.
"I bought my board a couple of years ago. I use it every day. It sits in the middle of my lounge and I get on whenever I feel like it. It's great when I'm watching TV...I get on for a few minutes in the ad breaks. I move more now and what I love is how I can use my body in so many different ways. It is really effective exercise,,,it'e easy to do and it's fun."

Mum and kids loving their board
"My kids and I have a rockit board and we love it! It's such an amazing tool to give to kids to promote health and fitness...My son has had issues since birth with weakness in his legs...since after using the board he's stopped talking of pain in his legs..
And I love it too..on days when I'm too busy to make it to the gym..I actually use the rockit board in my home training...so it's a great little tool in our household."

Xmas 2017 - another happy rock-it owner
Hi Guys. Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year. I received my rock-it board yesterday for Christmas from my daughter and her partner. What a great idea. I've used it everyday since receiving it. Already feeling more centred. As I get stronger I'll be trying the other moves. Thanks once again

My board has been a life saver for back pain
I have suffered lower back pain for years and tried everything. Nothing has really helped. Not until I got my rock-it board, recommended by my chiropractor. I use it every day, just a few minutes at a time. The relief is amazing. She tells me it strengthens the lateral muscles of the back and improves core strength. Whatever it is, it works and I am so grateful. What an awesome invention. Thanks so much Rock-it !

Another endorsement for the Rock-it board
I totally recommend rock-it boards. I attend trade shows regularly which involves standing for hours at a time at my stall.I would suffer really sore knees and be so stiff by the end of the day. One day I asked Dave and Annie ( they had a stall just along from mine) if I could borrow a board to see if it helped. The relief was immediate...almost unbelievable. I bought a board there and then. Now I take it to all the shows and make sure I am on it for a few minutes every hour. I now have no joint pain at all.

The office staff love using the rock-it boards. We have 6 of them in use all the time - used by people at standing work stations, or to take a breather, to stretch and move after sitting at desks. Supporting physical and mental health in the workplace - the rock-it is awesome.
and just recently in 2015
We have just ordered another 10 boards as the staff are fighting over them! They are extremely popular!
- PowerShop Wellington (and again 2016 added another 6 Office Rock-its to the collection!)
Here is some honest feedback from the team in the office who have used the boards:
~ It's fun, helps to keep moving which pumps blood around the body and keeps you feeling motivated
~ Comfortable to use
~ It's light, easy to move around and store under your desk when you decide to sit down
~ Helps with creative thinking
~ It's beautiful, love that it's natural
~ Surprised how strong and sturdy it is to use
~ I could feel core and muscles receive a workout whilst using the board
~ Everyone in the office wants to use the board, such a fun design

A yoga teacher recommends rock-it boards
I utilise rock-it boards in all of my classes, both in the more active Vinyasa / Hatha classes as well as in the slower yin style sessions.Even nervous students leave class with a smile on their faces after experiencing the joy of rock-it board yoga. The boards facilitate an ease of access to difficult poses like Pavritta Trikonasana and Virabradasana III, even for total beginners. For a more advanced yoga practitioner the boards provide additional complexity to standing, balance and arm strength poses. They also allow students to recline in restorative poses like Supta Virasana. My yoga room is a much richer space with the rock-it boards included.

I purchased a Rock-It board nearly two months ago, I have worked out nearly every day the improvement in my fitness is amazing. I will be 82 next week and have suffered with back pain for years, cannot walk far. The rock-It is just what I needed wish I had seen one of these years ago. I started off with just 5 minutes now I am up to just over 20 min I am thrilled. Thanks so much.

And a few days later from Jane:
"It has been six days now and Brian has had a noticeable improvement in his heel flexibility (an old injury) and I'm noticing better balance and core strength and flexibility. It is just the perfect tool for gentle stretch of the hip flexors and hamstrings, whilst satisfying the swing suspension joys of the inner child!"
