What are the benefits of using a Balance Board?
Balance Board training helps with joint and muscle pain and helps you recover faster from injuries while also improving mobility, strength, coordination and flexibility in order to prevent injuries in the future.
People of all skill and age levels can use our balance boards for rehab on the back, ankles, knees, and hips. They are also a great tool for children to help stimulate their development.
Not to mention ... Balance Boards are great FUN!
What is the best Balance Board for beginners?
The Huku Lár or the Corefit Balance Board:
If your current balance & core strength are poor, the Lár is the best for you! It is an excellent option to start working on your balance, and you still get an excellent range of uses from it, for example, planks, pushups, bridges and squats. The Lár helps increase the strength of specific muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments.
The Corefit Balance Board is a great option for beginners if your current balance & core strength are moderate or good. It moves in the same way as the Huku Original. The only difference is the size of the roller and the deck. It is nearer to the ground, which makes it a little easier when getting started, and the narrower deck also makes you focus more on the basic general movements and exercises.
I love surfing, SUP and snowboarding, which Balance Board should I choose?
The Huku Nalu is the board that we suggest for improving your surfing, SUP and snowboarding.
The Nalu Combo, in particular, is an excellent option as it offers two rollers. The Original Roller and the Nalu Roller. Combined, the two types of movements will help you develop a stronger core and better coordination. It will help you keep a lower centre of gravity when you are on your board. That is helpful in smaller surf and in getting moving on the wave or snow.
Do you have a Balance Board for kids?
The Huku Ulu (which means ‘to grow’ in Hawaiian) is our first balance board designed for children from 6 years old right up to 60 and beyond! (with a weight limit of 150 kg).
The Ulu wobble board is a great board to help stimulate your child's development and has a fantastic puzzle game built into the platform of the deck to make it super fun for all.
I have good basic core strength and balance, which Balance Board should I choose?
The Huku Original is the board for you. It moves in the same way as the Huku Corefit, but it has a larger roller and larger deck, so it’s a little more challenging. As you are further off the ground, the deck moves more freely, and you can come up with a lot more ways of using it. The wider deck also allows you to move around more freely and try out more tricks.
I want to use a Balance Board with my standing desk, which board should I choose?
The Huku Lár is the perfect choice to use at your standing desk. It is the least challenging of our boards, so it will allow you to answer phone calls and reply to emails while also increasing the strength of specific muscles, tendons, joints and ligaments.
Is it useful for me to use a Balance Board for non-board sports?
Absolutely! Balance board training is valuable for all sports, such as basketball, gymnastics, soccer, GAA, swimming, hockey, etc. Most sports require good core strength, balance, coordination and agility. All can be achieved with the help of a balance board.
If your current balance & core strength are moderate, we recommend you the Huku Corefit. However, if you have a good or great balance & core strength, then the best for you is the Huku Original.
Can I use my Huku Balance Board barefoot?
Yes, absolutely! In fact, we encourage it. Balance training barefoot allows you to have a greater grip on the board and really feel the movements.
Can I use my Balance Board indoors & outdoors?
Yes, the great thing about having a balance board is you can do it rain, hail or shine. You can do it on wooden floors, carpet or outside on a flat surface.
They are not waterproof, though, as they are made of wood and other natural materials.
Can I do workouts on my Huku Balance Board?
Yes, our Huku Balance Boards are a perfect tool to bring your workouts to the next level. Take a look at our Instagram and YouTube channels for inspiration on how you can incorporate a balance board into your fitness routine!
