Confucius says, “Balance boards will help you achieve ultimate enlightenment.”
Okay, so he didn’t really say that, but he would if he was able to see these awesome balance boards from StrongBoard.
These happy training enthusiasts in the Lotus position are working their cores through a balance act that looks very much like levitating on a magic carpet.
It may look easy, but don’t be fooled; using the StrongBoard Balance is tougher than it seems.
The StrongBoard Balance helps you get the most out of your exercise routine by using four springs attached to the top and base of the board, forcing you to activate every muscle in your body to balance it.
These boards have proven very effective as supportive aids for fitness, sports, and physical therapy.
The way it works is as follows:
- StrongBoard Balance helps you train your posture and proprioception (which is a fancy word for neurological balance or as a broader concept; ‘sense of self’.)
Basically what you train is enhancing your awareness of the relative position of neighboring parts of your body thus improving your movement strength and efficiency.
Improved balance helps you move more efficiently thus you will become faster, stronger, and reduce injury risks. It also enhances your coordination and perform better overall.
For those who want to grow old briskly, start working on your balance now. It may help prevent falls later on as it enhances joint stabilization.
The StrongBoard Balance is great for muscle training, encouraging a connection between mind and body that makes other exercises more fulfilling and effective.
You’ll need to be fully attentive when trying to balance on this board. Thankfully, if you do fall off, you won’t have far to fall – the board sits only a foot above the ground.
It also looks quite trendy; make sure to show it off to your friends and laugh as they try it out and fall over.
Once you get the hang of this balancing act, you’ll look and feel like a Jedi as you perch atop its swaying springs. Lightsaber not included.
All kidding aside, if you’re willing to start working your whole body and reap the benefits of balance exercises, the StrongBoard may be just for you.
