Its all about the size of the ring on the underside of your CoolBoard balance trainer. A bigger ring gives you more balance room to play with, giving a greater workout, more challenge, and way more fun. But too big is too much to handle for a small foot.
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.
The CoolBoard balance trainer is available with our Inflatable Ball and our fantastic Pro Balls. Pro Balls are available in different sizes and speed ratings.
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. Dynamic use will mean the corners of your CoolBoard balance board can catch the floor. Some exercises are less effective – e.g. Dips & Tilted Squats.
Medium – 125mm – A good all-round ball.
Large – 150mm – Best movement for balancing and perfect for exercising – our best ball. Requires more confidence as you are higher.

30 cm – Quicker movement, more challenging, feels twitchy.
40 cm – Slower movement, easier to get started on, feels more stable.
