I was given this balance board about a year ago as a birthday present. I was looking for simple methods of exercise that I could do in cold weather within my small home. The balance board was perfect. It enhances many forms of exercise including pushups, curls, lunges, etc. It is also fun all by itself. My children and I play catch while balancing. We invent new games and contests. We performed timed challenges. When my kids are bored and the balance board is in the room, they get on it and play. This is what I was looking for, exercise that is easy and fun. Balance board time adapts to the user. This is a great product.
