Actilean is a ski based fitness product made from
a high density EVA foam material.
One actilean roller is placed under each foot;
replicating a pair of skis. The participant is
then able to squat and roll/ lean side to side
as if they were skiing and performing parallel turns.
Actilean is designed to replicate the gradient of a ski
slope and is angled to do so; sloping forward so
that the heel is higher than the toe as it would be when facing downhill on a mountain.
The product is designed to increase tone, strength and endurance as well as conditioning the muscles; enabling them to become familiar with the movement ready for when you hit the slopes.
The design of the actilean enables the user to focus on their quadriceps muscles. By standing in a squat position it places a strain on this group of muscles and will thus in turn tone, strengthen and increase endurance.
Not only does it strengthen the muscles but also by rolling side to side as if skiing on your edges, it conditions muscles and secures muscle memory; resulting in your muscles firing correctly come that first day on the slopes in addition to enhanced edge control.
Each actilean is manufactured to exact standards using a specifically designed mould. The Product itself is made from a dense EVA foam and features an elevated rear and slightly raised front; giving around an 11 degree angle (equivalent gradient of a blue labelled ski slope).
The product is 13cm wide and 40cm in length; giving ample room for the majority of shoe sizes. Whilst the top is flat, the bottom is curved to enable the rolling motion side to side.
