Balance as an Afterthought

Balance as an Afterthought

Vew-Do was recently asked to participate in a very cool after-school program at a local youth center in Burlington, Vermont and it really didn’t have anything to do with helping the kids improve their balance.

Kinesthesia is the sense of motion and movement in the brain from the various receptors in the body located in muscles, tendons and joints. Riding a Vew-Do Balance Board is a very kinesthetic movement. There is also a concept called Kinesthetic Learning where students engage in an activity to aid in the learning process. Many people respond very positively to this learning method versus just listening or watching.

Better Balance, Better Trail Running

Posted by Keith on 2/21/2017 to Training Videos

Most people have come to see fitness as a series of separate fundamental components that are easily identified and measured – cardio endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, etc. Often times, motor control coordination is forgotten as one of those integral pieces of keeping fit.

For some exercise routines such as with yoga, balance is an obvious focus, but there are quite a few training routines that seem to forget how important a role balance is to maintaining correct form and a fit lifestyle. For people who run in particular, balance could not be more critical, because the actual act of running is in itself a balancing act. Yet for many runners, balance is not often focused on.

Indoor Stand Up Paddle Surf Training

Posted by Keith on 2/16/2017 to Training Videos

Looking to have fun with some dry land SUP training? Then check out Bobby Green (Amelia Island Paddle Surf Company) and Brew Moscarello (Owner and Designer of Vew-Do Balance Boards) while they show you how easy it can be to transition from a stand-up paddle board to a balance board.

Working on your toe and heel movements are excellent ways to strengthen your feet, legs, and core. Notice how Brew uses his feet, moving his heels up and down. The muscle contractions of the feet initiate the turn, and are the only connection between the board and the rider. This is why having strong, well-balanced feet and toes are so important to any board sport enthusiast.

Improve Your Snowboard 180s

Posted by Keith on 2/7/2017 to Training Videos

Using a Vew-Do balance board, you can accurately practice snowboard 180s at home, and then take those skills to the snow. Our patented track system is specifically designed to enable rotations by pushing on your toes or heels -- just like you would on a snowboard. Other balance boards only allow you to go back and forth, which won’t cut it, and certainly won’t help you out on the snow.

Benefits of Vew-Do Balance Training

As proprietors of balance, we at Vew-Do Balance boards are fully aware of the importance of adding balance training to your regular exercise routine, and it’s good to know that researchers at colleges and universities such as Harvard agree.

Experts in sports medicine and physical therapy agree that balance training is beneficial to people of all ages and of all athletic abilities. That’s because not only is balanced used in almost all purposeful movement and physical activity, but also because balance erodes over time like any other skill. Requiring sensory input, central processing and motor control, and muscle power to maintain stability, in order to stay in peak physical condition, balance training can help by being constructive in improving your mobility overall and preventing injury and falls- including as an older adult. In order to steadily stay on your feet, your body has to use various body systems at once, including the following:
