According to IDEA Health & Fitness Association, an organization of health and fitness professionals, wobble boards are just too good for trainers to ignore. They, along with foam rollers and small balls, are making their way into gyms because they challenge your muscles in a different way, improve balance skills, and help sculpt your muscles all over.
A wobble board can be used for health and fitness at home, work or school to provide a standing "balance challenge" or as a footrest under your desk to promote "active sitting."
They can be used to increase sports performances because they provide balance training stimulus to improve stability, agility, leg strength and core strength. Research has proven that regular use of a Wobble board dramatically enhances balance while also improving proprioception (the unconscious perception of movement and spatial orientation arising from stimuli within the body itself) and strength in all muscles, tendons and ligaments.
