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.

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.
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:
Balance is one of the first physical attributes that begins to deteriorate as we age. Unfortunately, most people over fifty do very little to combat this and the loss of balance creates limitations on our physical activities and the resulting loss of confidence affects just how we approach life in general.
Yes, there is something you can do and it won’t scare you. Two of our latest Vew-Do Balance Boards, the Zone and NUB, are perfect for helping seniors reduce the effects of aging with a simple design that is super easy to use and lots of fun. With a few minutes a day on a fun and moderately challenging Vew-Do Zone or NUB, almost anyone -- regardless of age or ability -- can safely experience the benefits of daily balance training, without breaking a sweat.
Vew-Do has a story and we’re finally happy to share some of it in our new brand video. Brew started this company back when MTV played real videos and snowboarding was still a relatively new sport. A lot has changed in the world since then but Vew-Do's passion for improving your balance has stayed the same.
It’s been fun to work with people that share that passion as well. One of those people is Adam Von Rothfelder. Adam’s a fitness expert that has been featured on NBC, Shape Magazine, Mens Fitness and more and is a big advocate for the need for balance training. It was Adam that gave us the quote “Stability is an illusion. If you want true balance you have to work consistently towards it.” Adam has a Vew-Do board stock in his gym, Como Fitness in Milwaukee as well as in California where he’s establishing his Earn-the-Day Training Program
The video was a ton of fun to put together and we couldn’t have done it without the help of Mike Nick at Four Nine Design in Burlington, Vermont and videographer Shane McFalls at Mondo Media Works in Brattleboro, Vermont. They’re both avid outdoor freaks and completely understood what we were trying to accomplish right from the get-go. They also did our entire collection of product videos as well.
Vew-Do has been at this a long time and we’re proud of our past but it is the future we’re most excited about. Balance training is becoming more mainstream everyday as more an more people discover all the benefits it provides. We have a long list of additional videos we’ll be producing in the coming months and hope you subscribe or follow us online. And of course, we want to see your balance videos on your Vew-Do board.
We all know sitting is bad for you, but standing all day still isn't the answer. We need motion to help keep our bodies and minds focused and energized, and the Zone Stand-up does exactly that. Using our progressive system, you get to choose the type of motion: from simple toe-heel rocking, to lateral teetering, to full motion wobble. Add the optional roller, and you have a full-blown balance training system. No other balance trainer—whether designed for the office, gym, or home—allows you to control the level of motion like the Zone Stand-Up.
