Core Balance Videos
Balance board exercises are some of the best exercises you can do to strengthen the core and develop strong abdominal definition.
The Rooboard balance trainer was designed to enhance these exercises by forcing the core muscles to engage. This increases the intensity and also isolates the specific muscles in and around the abdominal’s that make up the core.
Balance training on the Rooboard places an emphasis on muscular symmetry and postural control. By identifying your imbalances and strengthening these weaknesses you will improve your posture and core strength as well as the way your body moves around its centre of gravity. Building a strong core is essential to prevent lower back pain and ward off a possible injury.
Strengthening your core and specifically the obliques will also help you to develop a perfect posture and killer abs as explained by Kellan Lutz in Mens Health. “Staying upright on a horse is harder on your abs than anything and swinging a sword around really hits your core as well as your arms,” he says. Granted, there are no swords or horses at your gym, but the point is that for unreal abs you need genuine instability.”

Designed in the United Kingdom by Mason Gilmour DipSpSt, a former triathlete, fitness trainer, health club manager and life-long surfer. The Rooboard was created to fulfil specific training requirements within tight parameters. These being, it had to produce solid results, be extremely durable (in order to take a thrashing) and be easily transportable.
The Rooboard was born out of a passion to increase fitness, strength and balance. It had to increase muscular symmetry and performance for action sports like surfing, skating and skiing. And, it had to fit busy proactive lifestyles and be extremely portable, as in the daily work commute, flights, hotel rooms and those cheeky moments when you want to workout quickly and discreetly.
