Sports training and balance go hand in hand. Improving balance and proprioception with a balance board can help all players take their game to the next level. StrongBoard Balance has the versatility to train athletes for improved balance recovery, significant gains in reaction time, agility while simultaneously delivering the core strength and power necessary to play any game.
Athletes need to challenge their static and dynamic balance to improve coordination and StrongBoard Balance board does both, quickly.
We all know strength and cardiovascular workouts are important aspects of conditioning, but balance provides the foundation in which to make these gains safely without injury. In support of this, Fitter First founder Louis Stack says, ‘“Balance conditioning is a way to train the body to make better use of the strength you already have.” He continues, “when you train someone for stabilization, proprioception and balance, by default he or she is at less risk for injury. Good balance reduces [the] need for additional effort.”
Users of StrongBoard Balance report they are constantly challenged on the board because they can never find a point of stabilization. The patented multi-spring technology creates a reaction when weight is applied to the springs causing them to compress. This compression results in energy which a user must then fight to control. When you lose balance, as in the entire time you are on StrongBoard Balance, your brain sends instructions to the muscles and bones about how and when to react.
By training this reaction in a controlled environment, balance awareness becomes an innate, automatic skill on the field or court. We encourage athletes and athletic coaches to spend time performing regular floor exercises on StrongBoard Balance board. The result is an immediate ability to sense imbalance and to react quicker when balance is lost. This translates into injury prevention and sports improvement.
