The traditional time of giving is rapidly approaching. This year, why not give a gift that can “keep on giving” (to yourself or to a loved one). Dad doesn’t really need a new tie. Grandma has plenty of hand lotion. The kids don’t need more CD’s and DVD’s. We ALL have too many clothes and shoes.
StrongBoard Balance: A Gift of Health and Well Being
Balance is an often over looked part of our health, especially as we get older. Falls are a common problem as we age. This can of course, be from poor eyesight and weakness, but a lack of core strength, and a lessening of flexibility is a common factor. Building core strength, balance, and flexibility go hand in hand.
Not matter what your age, core strength is an important factor in overall fitness. With so many gyms still closed across the country, and with the possibility of massive “shut-downs” again in the near future, home workouts are a great idea, and StrongBoard Balance can make those home workouts beneficial in helping you build up that core strength…and you can have fun doing it! You can even participate in Get Fit At Home – StrongBoard Virtual Classes.
About StrongBoard Balance:
StrongBoard Balance is a one-of-a-kind, premiere stability board for all levels of fitness enthusiasts. Designed to complement and intensify users’ favorite workout routines, StrongBoard Balance’s patented MULTI SPRING TECHNOLOGY™ provides full-body fitness to increase muscle activation and calorie burn. As a portable and electricity-free platform, it allows users to train using their own body weight for resistance during full-motion exercises. Paired with a licensed physical therapist, StrongBoard Balance aids in the recovery of many injuries created by imbalance. It gently increases the patient’s flexibility, range of motion, and strength. Over time and with repeated use, exercising with StrongBoard Balance helps rebuild the bridge between the brain and the injured muscle. As users regain strength and decrease the pain associated with the injury, their range of motion increases allowing for increased blood flow and further healing.
About the StrongBoard MINI:
StrongBoard MINI functions exactly the same as StrongBoard Balance, and offers all of the same diversity, challenges and neurological stimulation, with one exception. Its springs are 2” shorter making it less reactive, and bringing the platform closer to the ground. Perfect for at-risk seniors, anyone living with a motor skill or neurological disorder such as Parkinson’s Disease, Cerebral Palsy or Ataxia, anyone on the Autism Spectrum, persons working with ADHD, recovering from stroke, or rehabilitating an injury, StrongBoard MINI is the go-to tool for gains in treatment and healing. It is also an excellent alternative physical therapy for those individuals who require creative ways to remain strong after experiencing an above-the-elbow (AE) transhumoral, above-the-knee (AK) transfemoral surgery or amelia. StrongBoard Balance has also been utilized by individuals who look to the American Orthotic and Prosthetic Association ( AOPA ) for innovation and advancement in strength training.
