They can be safely thrown and caught or slammed which allows for many creative uses during a workout

Sandbells add a unique challenge during workouts with grip strength and stabilization due to the shiftingsand within the bell

Because the hands are connected directly to the brain via the nervous system, the different griptechniques engage the brain to develop new neuralpathways for efficient movement.


BOSU Balance Trainer

The BOSU Balance Trainer is an inflated rubberhemisphere attached to a black rigid platform. It is also known as the "blue half-ball" because it looks like a stability ball cut in half

The BOSU can be positioned two ways:

It combines full-body movement with load, enhancing vitality, performance and reconditioning

Loaded Movement Training combines task-oriented movement patterning with resistance training. Agility and strength come from moving the body in a multitude of purposeful tasks with load

Science shows that moving with load improves balance, agility and dynamic strength, to reach goals such as weight management, improved functionality in daily life and enhanced performance in spirit.
