History

What do you get when you take a former national water ski champion, a military P.T.I and French Pogostick manufacturer?

A Pogo Pulse Adult Fitness Program and matching fitness pogostick

Pogo Pulse Roots

In 2008 a former national water ski champion and professional water ski coach defied the odds and produced the world’s first instructional tiered children’s fitness program on pogosticks.

It was such a success that in 2009 it won a New South Wales SPORTS SAFETY AWARD and then went on to be released internationally. The creator of this unique physical activity program; Barton Williams was a former school teacher, national water ski champion and advocate for active lifestyles.

Williams then teamed up with Corey Tomlins an Australian Army P.T.I, circus performer and martial artist. Together Tomlins and Williams spent countless hours working with a  range of different pogosticks and anti gravity apparatus eg. stilts and trampolines to finally develop what is now commonly referred to as Pogo Pulse.

Williams & Tomlins discovered the style and performance of French pogostick manufacturer TK8. Having already made success in the world of competition pogostick riding with their Big Air model, TK8 teamed up with Williams and Tomlins to further develop the TK8 fitness models, namely; Pro Fitness and Fun Fitness pogosticks.

Let it be known that whilst the origins came from William’s kids fitness program Pogo Pulse is not for children but it has an infectious engagement like child’s play.
