BOSU® Five Minute Favorites

Whether five minutes is all the time you have, or you are looking for a little extra push in May, here are some five minutes faves from my BOSU® Metabolic Disruption class. My clients always have workouts like these in their “at home toolboxes” to supplement the workouts they do with me or other trainers at the club. Now you do too! If you’re thinking you don’t have time, you definitely have five minutes. If you’re thinking, “What? I can’t possibly get anything done in five minutes,” give it a shot with all you’ve got – and you can make the magic happen!

Next, there is actually a design on the ball. Really. There are six sides with raised rings that are easily and effectively used to help with precise body positioning and alignment. Users appreciate knowing exactly how they need to be positioned for safety and performance.
