A Bosu-Style Balance Ball is known industry-wide as a versatile fitness device that delivers killer cardio workouts, builds strength, improves balance and flexibility, and fine-tunes sport skills. It consists of an inflated rubber dome attached to a rigid platform. The Bosu name is an acronym for Both Sides Utilized which refers to its versatility as a training device. Using the Bosu Balance-Style Ball dome side up provides an ever-changing, unstable, dynamic surface while the device itself remains stable. This element of instability is what creates the added challenge during exercises and is what makes Bosu so effective, and fun, as a fitness device. Flip the Bosu over and use the dome side down to discover even more exercises.


The Bosu Balance Trainer targets the core muscle groups of your body helping you to not only gain strength, trim, and tone but to strengthen the entire body and improve balance.

The Bosu Balance Trainer helps to increase body strength and improve balance, coordination, and body awareness which means overall improved fitness and fewer injuries. Because the Bosu Balance Trainer is impossible to master, it means endless exercise options as strength and ability increase. And, because of its small size and weight, it makes a great addition to any home gym and fits easily into any fitness program.


It's easy to get started with the Bosu by simply following the exercises in the owner's manual. Each of the exercises uses balance and stabilization techniques to challenge the cardiovascular system, muscle strength, endurance, and flexibility. The manual includes proper modifications for both beginners and more advanced users so that workouts are appropriate for any fitness level.


Every time you walk, your body must maintain balance to stay upright and prevent falls. Balance happens when you control the body over changing terrain like sidewalks, steps, yards, and running trails. Using the Bosu Balance Trainer forces you to maintain your center of gravity while performing any exercise and is an excellent way to prepare and tone your body for everyday life, athletic skills and help prevent injury.


Certain yoga poses can easily be performed with the Bosu Balance Trainer to add increased difficulty or bring improved flexibility, while basic moves like downward dog, half-moon, and standard forward fold can be easier by incorporating the Bosu into the poses.
