It’s a new year and it’s time for a brand-spanking-new you! For most people, New Year’s represents a time for resolutions and promises to make changes to your mind, body and spirit.

  • Lose weight

  • Drop a dress or pant size
  • Be more active
  • Eat healthier

StrongBoard Balance Board

The StrongBoard Balance Board is a balance board with an unstable base to intensify your workout. The board helps you locate, utilize, and strengthen your stabilizing muscles, achieving full-body fitness by maximizing your muscle activation and calorie burning potential. Standing on the board is a workout in itself, so imagine the intensity level when you attempt, for instance, Tree Pose on the StrongBoard Balance. For your fitness regimen of choice, you can increase the difficulty and see results even faster in exercises like squats and push-ups. When an exercise or pose gets too easy, just add weight to one hand and the uneven weight distribution increases your difficulty level. The board is portable and electricity-free, so you can take it with you for total-body resistance training anywhere, even the great outdoors.
