Step in just about any gym, Crossfit box or performance training center in the country and chances are you will see at least one Indo Board being used. The Indo Board has become one of the most effective and fun devices in fitness centers and with personal trainers that understand the importance of balance training, core fitness, proper movement patterns and kinetic chain stability. Since 1998 the Indo Board has been the choice of fitness professionals looking for a fun and effective functional training device.
The Indo Board is foundational to any complete fitness lifestyle but it is not about sets, reps or weights. Instead, the Indo Board prepares you for whatever an active life throws your way.

Why should balance training be incorporated into a fitness program?
Simply put, improved balance, proper posture and kinetic chain stability can all be achieved by balance training and those are three of the foundational principals of athletics. Additionally, clinical studies have shown that a consistent balance training regimen reduces the risk of injury injuries (specifically lower body joint injuries) in athletes in ground-based sports. Balance training takes many forms but why not make it fun, interesting and effective with an Indo Board?
Why are there so many different kinds of balance boards and balance trainers?
Balance training has gained in popularity over the years because of the many benefits involved in having a strong, stable body. In order to achieve stability one must learn to engage the core muscles that are responsible for the body’s balance and stability. Many devices have come and gone to help train balance but for 20 years, the Indo Board remains the gold standard in balance training for all levels of athletes and those simply interested in having a more stable body.
