The Springs in Fitness

StrongBoard Balance Board yellow springs

So Adidas has a new shoe out on the market. They are calling it the “Springblade,”

Check them out:

I haven’t got a pair yet but am growing more anxious by the day. They are designed to look sleek and run smooth. Adidas says the new “Springblade” running shoe launches you forward with 16 high-tech polymer “blades” individually tuned to hold onto the energy you pour into your stride, keeping it in cycle from one liftoff to the next. That sounds awesome AND fun! Adidas is stepping it up!

Although I have been working on it for almost four years, I also have a product on the market, and it too is spring related. Yes, StrongBoard Balance. SBB is designed to keep your body searching for stabilization. How you effect the spring torque once you are standing on it makes complete stabilization impossible. What is it about springs and how they make us think FUN? Like when we were kids, playing on the animal spring riders at your local neighborhood park, or remember Slinky:

Who walks the stair without a care

It shoots so high in the sky

Bounce up and down just like a clown

Everyone knows its Slinky

The best present yet to give or get

The kids will all want to try

The hit of the day when you’re ready to play

Everyone knows it’s Slinky

It’s Slinky, It’s Slinky

For fun it’s the best of the toys

It’s Slinky, It’s Slinky

The favorite of girls and boys

Whatever it is, I love that different companies also believe that. That’s why I stand by my product. It’s fun. You can actually exercise anywhere, anytime, and have FUN doing it.

Maybe someday I’ll have that photo opp where I will be standing on StrongBoard Balance with a pair of Adidas Springblades. You know, I just might go out and get a pair. That way I can just Instagram a picture of my own.

Have fun. Be healthy. Stay Balanced. :)
