Portland Personal Trainer | BOSU Balancer | Strong CORE

Try standing on both feet. Pretty easy, right? Now transfer your weight to one foot, and balance without letting your other foot touch the floor. A bit more challenging I would assume.

In exercise we push ourselves to new lengths once we get stronger. The same is true when we are training our balance. If exercises on the floor are too easy, we naturally would move onto the Bosu.

Right away you will feel the difference. Sure, balance becomes a bigger issue, but what does that mean and how can it make us stronger?

When we train on the Bosu, our stabilizing muscles have to work harder to keep our body upright because we are on an unstable surface. When we strengthen these muscles, our body is more likely to take unnecessary falls, and save us and our families trips to the emergency room.

This is one of secrets that a fitness professional and/or Portland personal trainer will use. Since I live in the Northwest, I always see these as another tool that they use for their clients.
