The Da Vinci BodyBoard is a ground-breaking new fitness system designed to deliver superior strength training and cardio. The “Opposing Tension” system allows for hundreds of different exercises with a core focus that is unbeatable!
What is a class like?
Class size is up to 4-8 students on a board, utilizing resistance bands from all sides of the board for a full body and varied
workout. Classes are fun and invigorating! You will see and feel the difference in your body, build cardio endurance and support
weight loss. With an endless amount of possible exercises on the BodyBoard, expect each class to be unique and a fun
challenge for your body!
What results should I expect from the DaVinci BodyBoard classes?
The classes are designed to build long and lean muscles without tearing the muscle. The BodyBoard also reaches the smaller
muscles that support your joints, creating a body with a more complete and balanced muscle structure. In addition to building
and toning muscle, the BodyBoard workouts promote weight loss and can help to improve balance and posture.
How long are classes and why?
Classes are 25-30 minutes long. Our bodies don’t recognize exercise instinctually. The body interprets long, draining workouts
as a struggle to find food so it tries to get rid of muscles and hold onto fat. These long duration workouts also send the stress
hormone Cortisol to the cardiovascular system which can be damaging over time. Instead, the DaVinci BodyBoard offers short
intense workouts that feed your muscles and get rid of fat by sending the body the message that it can get food quickly and
efficiently. Smart Fitness! Your body starts to work for you!
How many classes per week are recommended?
The BodyBoard system combines strength training and cardio in one short workout system and is safe and encouraged to be
done daily. This facilitates a more habit-forming exercise regime. However, you do not have to take classes every day to see
results. It is recommended to take at least 2-3 classes per week to really see and feel results. With the short time commitment,
it’s easier than ever to fit in a workout multiple times per week!
Can I take DaVinci BodyBoard classes if I’m a beginner or out of shape?
Yes, almost anyone can take the BodyBoard classes. Students are encouraged to move at their own level. If you need to adjust
tension or move at a slower pace, do what feels right for your body. You want to push yourself enough to get results without
injury. Just follow the routines and go at your own pace. If you are unsure about your physical capabilities, you should consult a
physician before engaging in any exercise program.
Can I use the BodyBoard if I am recovering from surgery?
Our studio requires a doctor’s note after recent surgeries and it is suggested to take a few private sessions for a safe recovery
from any surgery. Once you are ready, the BodyBoards are a great way to bounce back. Consult your doctor and/or physical
therapist before beginning any exercise regime.
Can I do private sessions on the DaVinci BodyBoard?
Most certainly! If interested in setting up a private DaVinci BodyBoard session please give our studio a call and we will help to get that set up for you!
Are there prerequisites?
Da Vinci BodyBoard is a high intensity, fast paced workout. For this reason we highly recommend an Initial Private Pilates session before your first class to help you connect to your core and keep your workouts safe. We do require that you take a Da Vinci BodyBoard Essentials class or have instructor approval before taking DaVinci Body Board Classes.
