From a company that understands alpine ski racing (Joanna a former alpine ski racer), Whirly Boards offer balance training beyond the typical seesaw motion. Mounted to the bottom of each wooden balance board is a half dome sphere which provides 360 degrees of rotational movement and fun. On each end are two smaller balance balls which can also be pivoted on, allowing for even more gyration and innovative tricks. These sturdy balance boards are all handmade in Wisconsin of Canadian maple wood. The wood grain is gorgeous and the top decks feature a durable grip tape or rubber cork. Being all one piece, these fitness boards will be super easy to transport back and forth to our ski team dry-land practices.
When the balance boards first arrived, we had two of our varsity ski racers take them for a spin and they had a blast. At first glance, I was thinking the boards were going to be too easy being all one piece, but they are perfectly challenging and unlike most balance boards, Whirly Boards offer endless options because of the half ball design. Needless to say, we are very excited to add the Whirly Boards to our balance training station this season.
As the head coach of the Sparta Ski Team, I am confident, that by using the Whirly Boards routinely during our dry-land training sessions it will help improve our racers balance, stability and strength when it comes time to staying on edge on the slalom race course. Thank you Whirly Board for supporting the Sparta High School Alpine Racing Ski Team. Whirly Boards are awesome!
Whirly Boards are great to train with at home or in the office.
Get in shape for the ski season and give these cool fitness boards a whirl !

You spin me right 'round, baby
Right 'round like a record, baby
Right 'round, 'round, 'round"
