Thank you for your email. My CoolBoard has recently been delivered, and I'm very pleased with it - it's great fun! I'm very glad I opted for the easy start disc as it made the board less daunting to start using, especially for my Mum who is a pensioner. She's hooked already!... It's a lot mor...
Impressive customer service on your part
Wow - Impressive customer service on your part - such a rarity. Thanks for the response - I know I'll receive it before I move now.
Great to do business with you - i'll let you know how I get on with the board.
Yep thanks it came the very next day as you said it would!
Yep thanks it came the very next day as you said it would! I have to say the whole family are completely hooked, even my 3 year old son (who admittedly needs a willing pair of hands to help lol). We have subsequently promised to get them a smaller board for easter, so it makes a nice change ...
All CoolBoard Packages deliver our unique movement and the ability to progress. All packages come with either a Medium or Large CoolBoard in your chosen colour complete with your ball, (optional) Balance Disc and your first CoolBoard Workout Wall Chart and Instructions.
This is our home / budget package. It comes with our Inflatable Ball. [more ball info]
Comes with our 125mm Pro Ball in Slow, Standard or Quickness Speed. A good ball for balance work but a little small for some exercises. [more ball info]
As it says on the tin - the best! Comes with our 150mm Pro Ball in Slow, Standard or Quickness Speed. Great for balancing and all exercises. [more ball info]
Further workouts, exercises and accessories are available from us and will be added to periodically.
The larger the CoolBoard - the more movement it will have, both in the foot to foot direction and the toe to heel direction - giving a greater workout and challenge.
A smaller ball also increases the range of movement.
Shoe size 9 and above - a Large
Shoe size 7 - 8 - you'll find the Medium easier to begin with but once you've got the hang of it you may find it restrictive in which case you'll have much more fun on a Large
Shoe size 6 and under - go for the Medium unless you're up for a very big challenge!
You can safely ride a board that is too small for you, it will just limit your movement, but you should only ride a board that is too big for you if you are experienced.
So if you plan on sharing your board with a friend or more, order for the smallest feet between you all.
Our inflatable ball makes the original package affordable while giving all the benefits of CoolBoard use. The advantage of the inflatable ball is that you can adjust the speed of the ball by adjusting the pressure in the ball. To pump up the ball and to keep it at the right pressure you will need a pump, preferably with a pressure gauge. Much like a bike tyre, the inflatable balls often need a little pump frequently and replacing every 6 months to 2 years.
Our Pro Balls have been specifically developed for CoolBoard - they are superior to the inflatable balls. Never need pumping, will last a lifetime and best of all have an ultra smooth and consistent ride for life! They come in 3 sizes and 3 speeds.
Slow Pro Balls give a slow and deliberate speed of movement that is good for early starters and rehabilitation.
Standard Pro Balls give a speed of movement that most people find a good challenge.
Quickness Pro Balls give a faster speed of movement. Great to really push you balance training and workouts.
Speed will be slowed down by using it on a soft surface - an exercise mat or bit of thick carpet, and sped up by using on a hard surface - laminate flooring. In this way you can alter the speed as you progress.
Small - 100mm - confidence inspiring by keeping you close to the floor, but dynamic use will mean the corners of your CoolBoard can catch the floor. Too small for most exercises.
Medium - 125mm - great for balance work but a little small for some exercises.
Large - 150mm - giving the best movement for balancing and perfect for exercising - our best ball.
Do I want a Balance Disc?
If you are new to balance training our Balance Disc provides an easy stepping stone on your way to using the ball - It is safe to use by almost anyone. Its gives a movement similar to a wobble board. It is adjustable by inflation so you can progress.
an easy start for those not used to balance boards or balance training
some specific small movement training
fun physical development for children
Being inflatable, all discs are adjustable from 1 cm thick giving a few degrees of tilt to fully inflated giving up to 45 degrees of tilt.
30 cm - Quicker movement, more challenging, feels twitchy.
40 cm - Slower movement, easier to get started on, feels more stable.
