StrongBoard Balance Board with Multi-Spring Technology – StrongBoard Balance (SB-BALANCE)
10 Customizable Spring Colors
Promotes Core Stability, Balance, Strength
StrongBoard Balance Board - NEXT LEVEL BALANCE TRAINING™ – The StrongBoard Balance Board by StrongHold Fitness is a unique, multidimensional balance trainer that can be integrated into any functional fitness workout routine to promote core stability, balance, and strength. The American-made StrongBoard Balance Board consists of four heavy duty steel springs positioned beneath an industrial grade platform designed to support up to 500 pounds of user weight and allowing 360 degrees of movement. Its patented Multi-Spring Technology™ prevents stabilization from occurring during standing exercises. Because the springs serve as a fulcrum, greater instability occurs the further away the feet or hands are placed from the pivot point at the center of the board. This instability forces greater activation of the supporting and stabilizing musculature, creating involuntary muscle contractions and increased core and total body engagement. The unstable surface immediately identifies weaknesses in balance and proprioception which allows users to strengthen, prevent and treat injuries while training. Regular use of StrongBoard promotes advanced and peak performance in any situation. The StrongBoard Balance allows users to train using their own body weight for resistance during full-motion exercises, as well as simulate sport training and tactical movements while holding functional fitness equipment (dumbbells, kettlebell, medicine ball, battle rope, CORE Hammer, stretch tubing), sporting gear (racquet, baseball bat, basketball, paddle board oar), or military/police training gear (rifle, handgun).
How does StrongBoard Balance® work?
One can think of the StrongBoard Balance as a multidirectional teeter totter, with the 6-inch springs creating movement in all three planes of direction (i.e., sagittal, frontal and transverse). The springs act as the fulcrum – where load and effort are continually combating one another in attempts to find equilibrium (balance). This instability creates a number of involuntary muscle contractions not only in the primary movers, but also in the smaller stabilizing muscles. Increased joint angle provides an increase in instability due to more force being required by the muscles and joints to stabilize.
Wider stance / hand position & increased joint angle → Increased instability
Closer stance / hand position & decreased joint angle → Increased stability
The StrongBoard Balance offers a flat/level, industrial grade platform for standing exercises, which mimics most real life movements and surfaces.
StrongBoard Balance allows its users to customize their board springs to match their unique personality, facility, company, school, or team. Spring Color Customization is available as follows:

APPLICATIONS AND BENEFITS:
Military and Tactical Application:
You don't just workout – you need real life movements like lifts, carries, crawls, runs, rucks, swims, and mobility, even analytical and creative thinking – which require mental focus. In real life tactical situations, you need to carry loads that are not equally balanced, on unbalanced surfaces. You have to be able to move, aim, and perform while moving. In real life scenarios, you don't have the luxury of a stair stepper or gym mat. You have to think and move on your feet, on the move. It's a challenge to duplicate those scenarios in your fitness routine.
Whether you're in the military, law enforcement, or a tactical sports enthusiast, StrongBoard Balance can improve your performance. When you're carrying 75 pounds of gear, working in uneven terrain, nothing would prepare you better for that journey than strong muscles that work to keep you balanced, and prevent strain and injury to your tendons and ligaments. Quick focus and reaction time are needed around the clock, whether hiking through the desert or mountains in the dark, or during bad weather. Balance isn't just critical to your mission success – it's critical to your survival. StrongBoard Balance is a movable platform that can simulate shooting from a helicopter, boat or moving jeep. Practice hitting your target while squatting and balancing. Imagine the improvement in your reaction time if your body has already rehearsed and perfected balancing without even thinking about it.
StrongBoard Balance allows military, fire and rescue, law enforcement, protective services, and other emergency personnel to harness the strength needed to perform at their peak in any situation. By utilizing body weight for resistance during full-motion exercises, StrongBoard Balance optimizes the NSCA's Tactical Strength and Conditioning (TSAC) program goals of improving performance, promoting wellness, and decreasing risk of injury for all who serve and protect.
