  • I've used Bosu on me and others to strengthen weak knees and ankles. They are expensive though--so use the gym's. Just putting your foot on and stepping over with the other is a good starting point. Then various balance exercises standing with both feet or one. It takes a while to get 5 seconds straight. My knees have been so bad stairs hurt. This has helped a lot. - 10/23/2014 9:24:56 AM
  • I wouldn't mind trying one! But Hey I have my Wii.. I can do everything I need on it! :) My balance has improved tremendously! ;) - 9/7/2014 5:33:33 PM
  • I would like to try it but, not buy it for me at home, maybe if I saw it a friends or at a gym and, and someone helped me with it I would try it.. - 9/2/2014 9:39:34 PM
  • I had hoped to see some demonstrations. I would rather buy a medicine ball.In my opinion these are overpriced and over rated. - 9/2/2014 8:57:58 PM
  • It is great that someone finally made a video because I have always wondered how to properly use this but it would have been nice to see examples in the video of exercises! - 8/19/2014 11:55:52 AM
  • Glad you did this video. I've always wondered what that strange-looking thing was and also how it got its name. Now I know. Cool. :) - 6/30/2014 7:54:33 PM
  • This is a wonderful piece of equipment. I am 70 years old and use it for strengthing my balance. Started using it at the gym then bought one. It is great for the core muscles also. - 6/17/2014 7:21:18 PM
  • I might try it. - 5/14/2014 5:39:33 AM
  • Now I understand why this particular piece of equipment was always so difficult for me to use. I do have weak ankles. - 5/8/2014 12:25:05 PM

  • How bizarre that no exercises were actually demonstrated! - 2/9/2014 9:59:20 AM
  • Thought the apparatus I had won, was one of these and was so excited. It wasn't and had to give it away to another SP member. Will watch for one that has this name. - 12/15/2013 8:34:26 PM
