Portland Personal Trainer: Stability & Balance Equipment

When it comes to stability training there are a few apparatuses that you can use that can help you. One of the earliest ones is the basic balancing disc, which can be purchased online or at a local fitness store. The second is a wobble board that either comes in a hard durable plastic or in the original wood format. Both of these different types of equipment are inexpensive, but very effective. The last one that we would recommend getting is a BOSU balancer and this can be purchased at your local Target store, but if you want the pro version then you have to order that either on Amazon or through a specialty fitness equipment store. If you want to learn more about these types of equipment and exercises, then we would highly suggest contacting your local fitness expert or if you are in the Northwest, your Portland personal trainer. Good luck and have a fun time using these different types of tools to help you with your balance and stabilization.

Portland Oregon Fitness: Importance of Stability Training

The importance of working on ones stability is extremely important, especially when we start to get older. A lot of individuals who start to age will have different issues, but this is a time when hip injuries and replacements are more prone to happen. This is due to tripping, falling, losing balance or just the bones have become brittle due to bone degenerative syndromes. Incorporating balance and stability into ones fitness routine cannot hurt, but can only be extremely beneficial, so give it a try.
