Bamberg native Corey Cooper lays out photos then thumbs through a portfolio dedicated to his newly patented invention: a multi-purpose medicine/exercise chunk officially named the CARVE-Ball.
Cooper speaks with passion and excitement about is invention, describing it as the “gateway to the future of sports fitness.”
“It is essentially a complete gym in a bag,” he explained in a recent interview. “It is something for everybody. I wanted to think of the idea that not Mom and Dad can use it, but two kids playing with two separate|two sports can, too. And not only them, but Grandma, too.”
Cooper said his medicine ball, which is roughly 40 percent complete, is unique. Unlike other medicine balls, which are strong balls frequently used for exercise, rehabilitation and strength training, the CARVE-Ball is several medicine balls rolled into one, he said.
For instance, the ball can be slammed, pushed, thrown, lifted, increased or decreased by weight, and has attachments that make it the only exercise equipment you need, he said.
The ball will come in rubber, leather and nylon, allowing it to move harder or easier on various surfaces, such as sand, pavement, gym flooring and grass.
The ball may weigh from a minimum of five pounds to a maximum of 360 pounds based on specified demand.
And its advantages do not stop there, Cooper noted.
He said the CARVE-Ball can compete against many of the common pieces of equipment used now in fitness and training, including the running parachute, the leather medicine ball, the weight vest, ab workout resistance bands, vertimax running machines and squats with straight bar on rack.
While the majority of the equipment out there is designed to operate on a particular body part, the CARVE-Ball will be able to address each body part through the numerous attachments, Cooper said.
He explained the ball may even be used in water by a swimmer as resistance through the use of a waist belt.
