How does it work? Simply Fit Board Vs BOSU

Reviews: Simply Fit Board Vs BOSU
Simply Fit Board
Simply Fit Board reviews reveal that Simply Fit Board is exactly as advertised and is a nice supplemental cardio workout, as well as muscle toner. Put a piece of 36′ x 36′ laminate wood over carpet and it works fine. First few times did it right on the carpet but it was wearing the carpet.
Simply Fit Board damages the floor.
Be careful on tile floors because it really moves fast. Do it on carpet it is harder to use. Start out by holding on to something.
Tried it out for a few minutes and realized a pad need to be put under it cause of the wooden floors.
It doesn’t hurt the knee. First impression it works pretty ok. It’s not like though workout just a descent nice workout get some movement in. Just be careful the first time hold on to a chair or something and stand on a carpet so it doesn’t slip.
Simply Fit Board won’t help you lose weight unless you work in other cardiovascular with it along with reducing calories.
Highly recommend, but only for people who are already physically literate.
The instructional video is not helpful. You’ll know you’re doing it wrong if your knees start to hurt. Don’t think anyone is going to have a huge, dramatic weight loss story from using this board, but combined with a sensible eating plan and other workouts, it will definitely help improve muscle tone. And you can use it anywhere at any time because it doesn’t produce any noise.
The BOSU balance trainer reviews reveal that the BOSU Balance Trainer seems like it should be a very well-made and solid product, it certainly has the weight and the frame is bolted together, but that’s where the quality stops. The ball is inflated with a very cheap pump and instead of giving you an actual PSI to inflate to, they just tell you find a ruler and inflate it to “about” 9 inches high. But then they give you all kinds of warning about not over-inflating it, hard to do when you have no hard info to go by. After it’s inflated you plug the valve with a plastic pin and once you get it in you need a wrench to pull it back out.
Really do not want to give the BOSU ny type of stars. It does not work it keeps popping out of place.
The pump is very cheap, tried to insert the plastic cheaply made pieces into the ball to inflate it, they broke. Tried to duct tape it back together but the pieces couldn’t be repaired.
The only issue is the actual air pump and the pieces that connect to the ball and pump itself.
Cheap plastic pump that came with it does not work. Used an electric pump with the correct-size nozzle, but the BOSU would never inflate more than 7″ even after several attempts. Note: The recommended amount of inflation is 9″.
It breaks quickly, is hard to inflate and air leaks often.
BOSU is very disappointing. It was only used twice by a 130 pound woman and then while it was not in use – just lying on the floor by couch- it separated from the base.
It is of poor quality, and smells terrible. Material is very cheap.
Can’t get it inflated with the cheap pump it came with. Every time the pump is depressed the nozzle blows out of the BOSU. If you hold the nozzle in with one hand while attempting to inflate it, it blows out the stem connected to the pump. Don’t buy this unless you have a magic inflation device.
It has a small hole near the base. All the reviews say you can’t fix a hole. It’s very frustrating to have paid so much for it and have it be so flimsy.
There wasn’t a pump or DVD’s so no idea how to even inflate it because directions weren’t even included.
BOSU may be a great exercise tool but you will never know unless you can inflate it. The tool to inflate this is very cheap. It does not hold well and it takes multiple times to inflate it. After 3 tries the blue tubing cracked and the top piece is virtually impossible to remove to put the cap on. When you try to remove the cap the blue piece on the bottom pops off and it deflates. It has been beyond frustrating. BOSU is not worth the money.
The cheap plastic hoses pop off numerous times, very poor plug design, no valves. Gave the pump, at the most, two or three inflations before it failed completely.
This was larger and heavier than expected. (Very hard to remove)
