The following is what I recommend to the majority of people:

Go with a 2in1 package – board, ball and disc.

Ball and disc are easy choices.  Ball – medium size standard speed.  Disc – 40cm for nice and chilled, 30cm for a twitchy challenge, or both.

Board:  CoolBoard Large for shoe sizes UK7+ EU41+ or US7+.  Everyone else, go CoolBoard Medium.  For a portable, lightweight option, choose Porto LongTail.

If its to be shared across a range of sizes think about how much challenge you want when on the ball, size makes little difference when on the disc.  The large and the PortoLT have a bigger ring for bigger movements, the medium has a smaller ring helping to keep the movement reigned in.

CoolBoard can be a balance board or a wobble board.

The board can be placed on our unique ball, giving dynamic movement in all directions, the ultimate balance board.

Or the board can be placed on the adjustable Disc, giving tilting movement in all directions, bringing the wobble board into the 21st century.

Available as a balance board with choice of Ball, a wobble board with disc, or a 2in1 board with ball and disc.

CoolBoard can help people of all abilities due to our range of different boards, balls and discs, and the different ways you can use your balance board.

Some people use CoolBoard while sitting to keep circulation going reducing aches and pains.  Some gently balance on the disc.  Some ride the ball, gently or very exuberantly.  Others get down and enjoy the core penetrating exercises.  You can see these techniques on the How-To page.

In this way we have helped people from wheel chair users to Olympians and everybody in between.

Surprisingly not.  Getting the hang of balancing on the ball is all about how you approach it.

Use CoolBoard with a sensible head and it will be a joy and it will do you a lot of good.  Jump on it like an idiot and it may bite you.

Before starting please read our instructions fully – they are there to help you.  Links to Quick Instructions and Detailed instructions.

We have had 80 year olds balancing on the ball within a few minutes with the right instruction, so don’t be shy of the ball.

The Ball is the key to extremely fun and effective balance training.  For most mortals it is a little shock to begin with, but its amazing how quickly you’ll start to get the hang of it, and from then on its highly addictive!  People vary hugely, as a rough guide people from 8 to 80 can get on well with the ball.

For most people the Medium Size Standard Speed Ball is perfect.  Easy enough to get started and enough of a challenge to keep you going for years.

More about Balls:

There are 9 Balls available to cover all uses, skill levels and budgets.  3 Speeds, each available in 3 sizes.

Speeds:

Standard Speed – the place the vast majority of people should start, and enough of a challenge to keep most people happy.

Quickness Speed – oh boy it is fun!  But you will need your wits about you and it will always be testing you.

Slow Speed – For strong and deliberate movements.  Not as fun but great for training and physio.

The Speed of any Ball can be slowed by using it on a soft / squidgy surface.  The thicker and softer it is the slower it will go.  Hard floors give the fastest ride.

Size:

Small – keeps you close to the floor helping to inspire confidence.  Easy to carry around.  Least expensive.  Too small for a Large CoolBoard used dynamically.

Medium – a great balance between the other sizes – my go to.

Large – large Balls just work and feel even better, but they require more commitment to pop up onto, are heavy to carry around, and cost the most.  Too big for the Medium CoolBoard.

Almost anybody can step onto any Board on the Disc right away and get going.  It is a great balance trainer in its own right, and a perfect starting point before progressing onto the Ball.  CoolBoard on Disc gives you the ultimate wobble board.

The Disc also allows training techniques that are not possible on the Ball, standing on one leg or using it while sitting for example.

Both Discs are adjustable with the included pump so you can increase the challenge as your skill improves.

Standing on it for balance training

Use it while sitting to aid flexibility and circulation, and reduce aches and pains.

Do the core targeted exercises for your fitness.

Disc Choice

Stable 40cm Disc – a relaxing balance experience.  Perfect for the nervous, infirm, watching telly, and for working at a standing desk.

Nimble 30cm Disc – more challenging when used standing as it takes focus to keep level.  The Disc to use for sitting mobility.

Many customers get one of each Disc to cover all bases and moods.

2in1 packages cover all bases – something you can get going on straight away, and something to progress with.  Many people go for 2in1.

The Ball is balance training in its purest form and is so much fun its addictive, it takes time to learn and feel comfortable on.  The Discs are still fun and give you balance training you can do from day one.

The Discs also offer some different training alternatives, one footed work or sitting mobility for example.

Most people can manage with any board, the choices are here to make it better for you and how you want to use it.

CoolBoard

The original 3D balance board, honed and evolved over 14 years to be the all-round best.  Bomb-proof construction, plenty of room for your feet, comfortable to hold for the exercises, straight ends for secure starts, available in two sizes.

The Large is slightly larger overall, but more importantly it has a bigger Ring.  A bigger Ring gives bigger movements when on the Ball.  The Medium Board has a smaller Ring to reign things in when on the Ball.  On the Disc the Size of Board makes little difference

Go Large – if you are above average size / are adventurous / do boardsports.

Go Medium – if you are below average size & prefer to err on the side of safety.

If you want a CoolBoard for a range of people sizes, consider which is more important to you – adventurous freedom of movement (go Large) – or – keeping it on the safe side (go Medium).

Porto LongTail

Originally developed as a more portable option – smaller overall, thinner, much lighter, but packing a Ring as large as the Large CoolBoard for maximum balance fun.  So some compromises were made, and unexpected benefits found…

The board is a little more cramped for larger footed humans, but the light weight makes it even more fun and chuckable – it’s as close to surfing / snowboard as you’ll get at home!

It is not as comfortable to hold for the exercises – but it’s still a highly effective exercise board.

Being light, it is easier to move around the house or to take away with you.
