The words, “As Seen On TV” might raise a red flag for many consumers. Many items are under par when it comes to satisfaction. When the Simply Fit Board was on the shelves of Walmart I couldn’t help but be intrigued.
Difficult workouts are a turn off for me. If I can’t do something from the get-go then I’m not very likely to stick with it. Especially when it comes to needing to fit an effective workout into my day. This board was interesting since I had been seeing commercials about it and then noticed it in stores. It isn’t too often that I will open up my wallet to buy fitness equipment that might do nothing more than collect dust.
The Simply Fit Board (SFB) impressed me! Unlike a BOSU ball, which is known for working the core, it was easy to get on and use. A BOSU ball is great, don’t get me wrong – I have and use one. However, there are still times where I feel like I have baby deer legs when I try to get balanced on it. The SFB was simple to get balanced on and easy to use. They provide an instructional DVD, user guide, YouTube videos, and are easy to find on social media. The SFB also holds up to 400 lbs.! A BOSU ball that is 25 inches in diameter holds about 350 lbs.
Even though the core work comparison between the SFB and the BOSU ball are noteworthy, the SFB is both great for a whole body workout and is at a reasonable price-point. The one I purchased was $39.88 at my local Walmart. The videos do demo the workouts using weights. These are not necessary but I would recommend light dumbbells with the exercises. I used 3 lb. weights. If you are looking for a low-impact full body workout I think you will be pleased with this sturdy little board. It will get your heart rate up, it’s versatile, and a great way to get cardio and strength exercise. ~trvw
Listen to a user testimony from David. He is a male who works out approximately six days a week and tried the SFB.
