Improve your balance with pods and pads
Balance pods are available in a variety of styles to suit your needs and are almost always sold in pairs. When beginning to use a balance pod, it is recommended that you place the flat side on the floor for a moderate challenge. Anyone seeking a bigger challenge can simply turn the pod over. With bumps and soft spikes on them, the pods can also improve your circulation while you work on your balance.
Another popular choice for working on balance is balance pads. These pads cover a good surface area, so you can feel safe and secure even if you stumble. The surface of the pad will force your body to work to keep you upright, acting as a wobble pad to improve your posture and stability.

Can I improve my balance with balance pods?
There are a number of ways to improve your balance, with a variety of exercises and tools to help with that. Balance pods and pads provide an excellent challenge to you. The specially designed surfaces will force your body to make micro-adjustments to keep you stable and on your feet. By using pods and pads for a short time each day, you will see a dramatic improvement in your balance and stability.
How inflated should my balance pod be?
Balance pods are designed to be inflated to different levels, depending on your needs. The more inflated the pod is, the more of a challenge it will present you with. Beginners should start at a lower inflation level and build up. Depending on the orientation of your pod, you may find that it is more challenging if you stand on the flat part, rather than the rounded, textured part.
What can I use balance pods for?
Although balance pods are primarily associated with balance, they are used for a variety of exercises for both the upper and lower body. Balance pods are quick to set up, making them the perfect solution to add an additional layer of challenge to familiar exercises such as crunches, pushups, lunges, and even yoga poses.

Which exercises should I do on balance pads?
The best thing about balance pads is that they can be used as part of your regular exercise routine to make your typical exercises a little bit more challenging. Your workout will feel more intense, whether you opt for a bodyweight squat, or you want to try some pushups.
