Look around any gym or health club and you're likely to see the BOSU ball in use. Members and trainers use this unique tool to enhance a functional or balance workout! The BOSU ball, named from the acronym "BOth Sides Up", can help users increase right/left balance in both the body and the mind. Since the BOSU is an unstable surface, it's thought to help participants engage core muscles to maintain balance and improve muscular control. 

Here are a few basic exercises that can be done with the Bosu:
- SQUATS: Try putting one foot on the BOSU and one on the floor

-PUSHUPS: Hold the outside of the BOSU with the Blue Side down (See photo)

- CRUNCHES: Sit on the top of the BOSU with the Blue Side down for a challenging abdominal workout.

Remember: Do your research and check with your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Enjoy and Be Fit!
