Seminar Description: The Hipee is a user friendly, sturdy, lightweight, portable exercise tool that challenges your balance and stability and concentrates your effort due to less surface area on which to sit. Therefore, you get more overall benefit because your entire body needs to be engaged to maintain balance and stability. Born out of necessity while doing hip therapy after an injury, coach Luis took the Hipee from the bathtub to the gym floor where he discovered a whole new level of exercises that continue to grow organically. Luis Leonardo is a personal trainer, triathlon coach, triathlete, runner, cross-country single speed cyclist, and a 27 minute plank holder. Visit www.tressports.co for more information.
