Why People Love the UltraSlide Octagon

Never heard of the UltraSlide Octagon? You’re in luck! Check out the Octagon in use, and you will not only learn about it, but you’ll also see why people love the UltraSlide Octagon. 1. Limitless The UltraSlide Octagon 2×8 allows YOU to change direction and use a wide variety of angles as you slide across the surface. We call it “360 Degrees of Movement.” 2. Create Your Own Training Playground The unique patent-pending design means the bumpers can be reconfigured to create two 8- foot long (and 4 foot wide) lateral slide boards (thus the “2×8”). The two boards can be adjoined so that athletes can train together or can be separated to have the boards in different parts of your facility. 3. Versatility Do you like functional cross training in your routine? Do you prefer creating individual goals or training with partners? You will have all of these options with the UltraSlide Octagon. 4. Work Together. Train Together. It’s been statistically proven that working out/training with the company of another person, whether it’s a friend or trainer, increases the success of a workout. The Ultra- Slide Octagon allows both YOU and a PARTNER slide your way to success at the same time. 5. FUN You’ll not only get an effective workout, you’ll also have fun! You can find videos that target each area of the body while sliding your way to a fit and…
