always Core - always More
The secret to real, functional strength resides in bodyweight exercises, and these are best when instability is introduced to the exercise.
More effective than a swiss ball or half ball, CoolBoard is on a par with suspension training, but more accessible and less hassle.
CoolBoard safely provides more instability than any other product, so will work your body harder and more effectively than anything else. A 'simple' press-up suddenly engages much of your body and core as you keep the CoolBoard steady through the move - you will find muscles you didn't know existed!
We have over 70 bodyweight exercises allowing you to target every part of your body. Our exercises will always engage your core, strengthen your joints and improve your balance and proprioception while still working the major muscle groups.
Your workout can be strength or cardio biased - your choice.
CoolBoard is progressive. Start exercising on our Disc which provides movement similar to a Swiss Ball or Half Ball. Then progress up to using CoolBoard on our Ball to get unrivaled movement for a harder workout.
Due to this progression, we have shocked Marines with a few press-up, but also helped the elderly get some strength and fitness back for a more active life.
By always working your core, joints, balance and proprioception you will also prepare your body to avoid injury as best you can so you can avoid forced time away from training.
Whatever your sport, whatever your level - Core Strength and Stability, Balance, Proprioception, and Joint Strength - are all training goals that are vital in modern sports performance for good reason.
With its unrestricted instability CoolBoard will help you target these vital elements of your fitness like nothing else – but why are they so important?
Your Core connects all your major body parts and is where all your power of movement begins.
Balance and proprioception are the systems that your body uses to control itself – think about running or catching a ball and how little thought these tasks require.
Your joint stabilising structures give you the strength to control and move a limb with accuracy.
Having strong joint stabilising structures and core will allow you to move your body with more strength, power and accuracy for longer = performance!
Instability training works these often under-developed areas of fitness, and because CoolBoard offers more instability than other trainers (half ball, other balance boards, swiss and gym balls, foam pads, etc) its far more effective – you must react to every little movement, constantly working all those little important muscles.
Just balancing on CoolBoard balance board fires up most muscles from your toes to your chest, including the all important joint stabilisers and core... our other 70 exercises will allow you to further target these as well as working your upper body. We already have 12 Sport Specific workouts to choose from, with more to come.
Working muscles you didn't know you had, CoolBoard will nip and tuck you to perfection, while building solid muscles and helping you to lose weight.
