Meet Phil... He has 5 Si Boards... He's training for lifePhil and his 5 Si Boards
I'm 5' 10.5" with two active young children, a healthy spouse and a 100+ year old house.  Staying in shape is simply a must.
My favorite board is the Freestyle Original and 6.5" ball. The Commando demands my attention when I want to push strength training.
The ride is dynamic, physically challenging, and can demand my attention. I'm always surprised at how my legs feel so well worked and so rock steady when I dismount. The feel of riding is exhilarating when you're in the groove. It's the oddest sensation of floating and being firmly planted at the same time. 
I got hooked by the feel of the ride quickly and purchased a Kick Start for my daughter with Down Syndrome to help her with core strengthening. The Turbo Original is a good fit for my 5' tall adolescent son. 
When I'm riding a Si-Board, I get a sense of great physical challenge, physical grace, and the thrill of moving in ways most people can't begin to comprehend.

What's The Science Say?
Can balance training make you run faster, jump higher and improve your strength?
Science Facts

Studies are have been inconsistent. German researchers did a systematic review of 20 clinical trials to determine the effectiveness of balance training for neuromuscular control and performance enhancement. Most studies assessed balance using a single leg stance.

Here's what they found:
  • Balance training was effective for improving postural sway and dynamic balance in athletes and nonathletes. 
  • Strength training was more effective for improvements to sprinting, jumping and strength activities.
  • The exact training effect on the neural adaptation of why balance training improves function was inconclusive. A consensus could not be found within the studies.
  • Improvements were more pronounced when balance training lasted longer than 6 weeks compared to short duration. 
To improve in all aspects of your sport, you must specifically train for those. Posture control is necessary for injury prevention and being able to stay on your feet longer. Balance training is one piece of the puzzle to help you become a better athlete.
