In this short video, Coach Nicole gives you an introduction to using a BOSU ball for fitness. Learn about the benefits of exercising with the BOSU, and how to use it safely and effectively.
thank you for explaining the BOSU including the weight limit, I never looked into one before as I assumed I would weigh to much. Now I might try one.
What the heck? Just talk - no demo - I think most people know what a bosu is by now. I was looking for maybe something different I could try on it. Maybe she can't balance on it?
Great explanation and demonstration of the Bosu Ball.
I love the Bosu. It has been integral in my physical therapy.
Thanks for taking the time to explain what it is.
Wheres is the demonstration workout
I agree with other comments - I really wanted to see a demonstration of using the BOSU and not just hearing about it!
the BOSU was an excellent item during my recovery from a broken ankle and leg. Held on to a treadmill for balance and it took about two weeks for me to stand alone. I love it. You can do crunches and just relaxing and stretching your back muscles.
Thanks for info. I am not ready for the BOSU
was really looking for things to do on the BOSU. I already know what one is
I broke my left leg and ankle a few years ago and the BOSU helped me to regain my balance and helped strengthen my ankles. I did not walk for almost a year due to 4 surgeries and I use in after I was able to walk. Very lightly and easy made the pace with the bosu and stair climbing helped me regain all the strength in my leg and both ankles. I swear by it.
she just talked...no demo!
Cool I think I would like to try this.
I've used Bosu on me and others to strengthen weak knees and ankles. They are expensive though--so use the gym's. Just putting your foot on and stepping over with the other is a good starting point. Then various balance exercises standing with both feet or one. It takes a while to get 5 seconds straight. My knees have been so bad stairs hurt. This has helped a lot.
I wouldn't mind trying one! But Hey I have my Wii.. I can do everything I need on it! :) My balance has improved tremendously! ;)
