Over the past 2 years, a lot has changed in our lives. We went from being in college, working out every day, to not working out at all. After having our son, working out was just an afterthought. It was difficult to find a balance between work, graduate school, traveling to see family and finding energy. We live several hours from our hometown, so we are always traveling to show off our little one. My wife, was a Division I track athlete at Northern Iowa. On top of that, she was finishing her graduate degree. The adjustment to parenting impacted her the most, as leaving our little one to workout at the gym was not going to make it on her to do list.
That’s when we began developing the Yoga Flexer System. We wanted to incorporate our favorite exercises into one - compact, lightweight and portable product.
The main idea was to bundle all of our favorite accessories into a yoga mat. Yoga mats have so many benefits and people carry them everywhere. Sure enough, it’s never been done. It needed to be flexible enough for hundreds of workouts. Not only did it need to be a full body workout system, it needed the tools for the important warm up and cool down phases. So after months of prototyping, I finally found the perfect combination. My wife is now able to workout and take care of herself without feeling guilty about leaving our son. It allows for a fast and effective workout while creating priceless memories. What better way to teach your child the importance of maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle than involving them.
If you know someone that can’t find the time, energy or motivation, please share this with them! Thanks for taking the time to go over our story.
