Balance boards are a great workout and posture-enhancing fitness accessory that will help you burn extra calories and tone muscles (especially your core, oblique’s and lower back), whether you’re working out at home, practicing yoga, doing a Pilates video, or just standing around. Aside from their fitness-focused benefits, they’re also great for helping to improve your balance (hence the name), coordination, stability and they can also help to encourage better posture with continual use. There are a few main types of balance boards to choose from: rocker boards, wobble boards, and roller boards. In general, the smaller your balance board is, the more difficult your workout will be.
Traditional wobble boards are great for adding resistance and extra intensity to a variety of different workouts—you can even use them to enhance your pushups, ab exercises, and squats. Rocker boards are a great option for beginners because they don’t offer the same 360 range of motions as other types, but they do still help to improve your posture and balance. Finally, roller boards (the most challenging of the three) are great for those advanced strength-training routines. Regardless of your fitness level and individual wellness goals, there’s a balance board for everyone out there.
