Leave it to a celebrity to make an old balance tool a “cool” and “in” fitness toy. This balance gear has been used for years in gyms and physical therapy offices. As with many balancing tools; it helps to strengthen the core, build up stabilizing muscles, increase calorie burning, and tighten up tendons in lax joints.
For Zac Efron’s 21st birthday, his High School Musical 3: Senior Year costarAshley Tisdalegave him an Indo Board ($99.95), a balance-training tool to help the actor (with girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens) with his surfing. Even if you have no plans to hang ten, the board – which is balanced on a cylindrical roller or cushion and comes with an instructional (source).
Most guys would love to have Zac’s toned physique. Before you run out and buy one of these boards, try using simple tools around the gym such as, a physio ball, dyna disc, bosu ball or simply standing on one foot as you lift weights. Anything that challenges your balance can help you to burn more calories and tone your core.
