Article Hails Balance Board’s Ability to Give a Complete Core Workout & Athletes the Edge They Need!

MARINA DEL REY, Calif. (June 1, 2015) – StrongBoard Balance®, the critically acclaimed balance board, is “one of the best workout tools available today,” states an incisive new article on Posted last week, the story also hails the balance board’s ability to give mixed martial arts fighters and other athletes the edge they need to compete.

The article, written by Eric Kowal, features an interview with former NFL player John Walker. Now a fitness trainer, Walker noted StrongBoard Balance for its ability to provide an effective and efficient workout to his MMA clients.

“I don’t think there is a greater tool that helps athletes become more familiar with their bodies,” Walker told the magazine, adding that the board “forces you to come in control with your muscles.”

Walker, a strength and conditioning coach to top mixed martial arts fighters Uriah Hall, Ashlee Evans-Smith, Tony Ferguson, and others, said in the article he was searching for a tool that would give clients the edge they need in the cage, when he came across the StrongBoard Balance.

“I was looking for ways for my athletes to recover from lower body injuries, such as to their knees and ankles. Not just recover, but also build strength and total body awareness, and I found that [StrongBoard Balance] helps achieve that,” Walker said.

Walker has 18 boards in his gym. “Not only do [Walker’s clients] use it, they fall in love with it and request he make them use it,” Kowal wrote.

The article went on to quote UFC women’s bantamweight fighter Ashlee Evans-Smith who told MyMMANews, “I’ve used StrongBoard a few times now with my performance coach John Walker, and I only have great things to say about them. Using this unassuming piece of equipment has been a fun progression to numerous exercises in my training. StrongBoards are innovative, intense and step up from your normal training.”
