About

StrongBoard Balance is a fully responsive balance board and stability trainer. It is the only product on the market to use patented MULTI SPRING TECHNOLOGY™ which promises users will never find a point of stabilization. Compressing under any weight bearing load, StrongBoard’s springs are responsive and dynamic. Simply standing on StrongBoard requires total core engagement. StrongBoard is easy and safe to get on and off, and its flat platform protects joints and surrounding ligaments from excessive supination or strain, allowing the user to mimic real-life movements while supporting the kinetic chain. StrongBoard weighs 15 pounds and may also be used as a weight for bicep, tricep, chest and abdominal exercises. In addition to the muscular and skeletal benefits, use of StrongBoard trains the central nervous system, requiring muscles to communicate with the brain, effectively opening, healing, restoring and strengthening delicate neural pathways. The biomechanics of spring technology coupled with the rigid platform require users to find their true center of gravity. StrongBoard delivers profound results to all levels of fitness enthusiasts, creating desired changes in how users look and feel, as well as improvement in balance, core strength, agility, posture and reaction time. All StrongHold Fitness products are proudly made in America.

Founding Story

StrongBoard Balance was conceived in a garage when Adella and Mike Curry (a corrective exercise specialist with 25 years of personal training experience) put a piece of plywood over an automotive spring and attempted to stand on it. Knowing the elastic properties of the springs made the product more responsive than any other products in the space, Mike and his wife Adella worked with patent and trademark attorneys to secure MULTI SPRING TECHNOLOGY™. StrongBoard was officially brought to market in 2015 to restore health, wellness, and balance to people of all ages and fitness levels. Two years later, its sister product, StrongBoard MINI® was born to assist less able bodied persons with the same goals. At their very core, Mike and Adella believe a balanced mind and body are key to radiant life energy.

Testimonials

The StrongBoard Balance® has been a great addition to my clinical practice. This lightweight, portable device implements an intuitive design with a quad-spring core and a level surface platform that hovers in a dynamic flux. There is no cheating, if you’re on the board, your muscles are in motion. The proprioceptive biofeedback is invaluable as the board stays in motion until acted upon by an outside force – the outside force is the patient. The StrongBoard is great for both closed and open kinetic chain exercises and almost every static exercise or weight lifting regimen can be enhanced by adding the dynamic motion of this board. I have had great success implementing this board in patients with isolates muscle weakness as well as the complicated neuro-rehabilitation patients with vestibular dysfunction. The StrongBoard Balance has been an invaluable new addition to both our Orthopedic and Neurological Rehabilitation clinics and I believe its integration into home exercise regimens is a tremendous opportunity for our patients.

StrongBoard Balance is effective in firing erector spinae, multifidus,  and abdominal – internal and external obliques and rectus abdominus which are all involved in maintaining balance. This is not to mention the muscles of the pelvis such as gluteus region, adductors, abductors, and the lower leg muscles. I endorse this exercise technique as it involves and integrates all the muscles of the spine, pelvis, and legs without the risk of serious injury, which can occur with weight lifting. I plan to recommend it and incorporate it into spinal rehabilitation for my patients with back pain as well as following spinal surgery. I highly recommend StrongBoard Balance for anyone wanting to improve the health of their back.

This is a great piece of equipment that I personally use with my clients because it brings a new dynamic to efficiently challenge the mind while training the body and improving balance. It is truly a revolutionary training tool that has become a staple in all of the workouts at my facility.

StrongBoard Balance is the best balance board on the market and an asset to any sports training facility. Persons who implement this exercise device into their workouts will rapidly improve their core strength and over all stamina.

As a chiropractor, I had great interest in StrongBoard for measuring balance in athletic patients, and it continues to impress me. While the StrongBoard offers an efficient method to strengthen the body, its role in measuring neurological balance (proprioception) will hold value to anyone performing such testing. StrongBoard Balance is stable yet flexible and easy to engage upon, allowing the user to establish a neutral position before beginning activity. Since introducing it to our patients, we’ve discovered new ways to use StrongBoard to improve balance and fitness, and patient health and wellness is our primary concern.

As a Certified Athletic Trainer working in a physical therapy setting, the usage of the StrongBoard Balance has drastically changed my abilities in rehabilitation with patients. StrongBoard Balance makes it possible to educate patients on muscle control, neuromuscular facilitation, and core stability better than other devices on the market. Other balance devices I have used in the past such as BAPS boards, and Foam Pads, do not provide patients with enough dynamic movement that they are truly able to challenge all movements of muscles. In saying that, StrongBoard Balance offers enough variation in style that I can put a professional athlete on one, and yet I can put an elderly person with a gait disorder on another style, and feel confident and safe with both. StrongBoard Balance offers flexibility unlike any other device on the market, and makes rehabilitation challenging and fun. All of the variations of StrongBoard Balance keep patients challenged, allowing for marked progress because of the variation in spring flexibility, and make workouts fun for the patients. StrongBoard Balance is a great rehabilitation tool in not only the athletic population , but also in those with severe gait/balance disorders.

Working with rehabilitation at every level from children with congenital anomalies to world-record-holding champions, it is extremely difficult to find one piece of equipment that works for every body. StrongBoard Balance is just that: you can challenge every plane of motion to any intensity, without putting your patients at risk. For someone like me, who’s handling a diverse population daily, often at acute stages of treatment, this is an essential tool to expedite my clients’ rehab. For example, countless hip injuries are caused by over using hip flexion and extension without counter balancing these motions with lateral and medial rotation (side to side) motions. With StrongBoard you can pick the angle or joint aspect to focus on and build the program your patient needs in any direction. That applies to the hips, knees, ankles, shoulders and even the low back. When utilized with a specific and targeted movement, specific to the weakened area, StrongBoard stability work decreases rehabilitation time.

Stability and balance are the foundations for effective movement. The primary goal of the StrongBoard Balance is to strengthen the body through emphasizing the use of the core to balance and stabilize the body. The product consists of two platforms joined by 4 compression springs. The springs are positioned such that the bottom platform rests on the ground while the user stands, sits or places their hands on the top platform, which is elevated by the springs about 6 inches above the bottom platform. The springs are centered toward the middle of the board to create a unique unstable surface. The shape of the platforms allows the user to use the board both with a narrow foot or hand position or a standard foot or hand position. This variability significantly changes the amount of stability required to perform an exercise. Like many of the other stability products on the market there is a broad range of exercises that can be performed on the StrongBoard Balance. With correct coaching and proper progression the board could be an effective tool for any Fitness Professional. From rehab to sports performance, bootcamps and group training this equipment had a broad range of applications. There is the option to order the springs in different colors which provides a different look and would allow the board to fit a club or team colors giving it a more personalized look. The website shows a number of exercises targeted for different parts for the body with a short easy video to demonstrate the movement. For the majority of people getting on and off the board the first few times is challenging. This is easily overcome by a quick review of the correct way to step on and to dismount – also provided on the website. It is important to step up into the correct starting position because once on the board it can be challenging to change one’s foot position due to the instability. Overall the StrongBoard Balance provides the ability to train balance, core strength and posture. Its portability makes it easy to take anywhere and there is no set up required. It is shipped ready to use. What we liked: Creates a fun way to try traditional exercises, Offers many different exercise options for a very wide a variety of populations, Can be used on its own for balance movements or combined with other equipment such as dumbbells, For use indoors and outdoors.
