Have a laugh - and get fit for snowboarding

You’re dedicated to getting fit for snowboarding… but you’re just a little bored of the same old exercises. Instead, you might want to give the Indo Board a try. The latest – and most fun – way to improve the strength and balance required for snowboarding, this is an inspired fitness gadget.
The Indo Board comprises an oval plank of wood that lies on top of a small cushion of air, thus simulating a snowboard, and also a surfboard, riding the snow, or the waves. Trying to sit, stand or lean on the board engages a wide range of muscles.
Try performing a few exercises such as sit-ups, squats and press-ups on the Indo Board and you’ll see just how difficult it is to do these routine exercises without allowing the board to touch the floor.
The Indo Board is fantastic for your core muscles as you try to maintain your balance, and also targets the legs, arms, abdominals and butt. So, all those muscles that you’ll be engaging while snowboarding on the pistes this winter.
Created by Florida-born surfer, the Indo Board has now become the focus of gym classes across America – and we’re predicting it will reach these shores in the very near future.
