Product Description

Amazon.com

Appropriate for everyone from elite athletes to kids to weekend warriors trying to stay in shape, the Bosu 3D System Balance Trainer helps you strengthen and coordinate several major muscle groups, including the muscles you don't see. The 3D System targets your core muscles--the muscles around your abdominal and back area--while you perform a host of different workouts, from lunges and bicep curls to lateral shoulder raises and hip extensions.
As a result, you not only gain strength, trim, and tone, but also improve your balance and coordination along the way. In addition, Bosu training helps strengthen the mind, with thoughtful movement that requires the participant to not only be physically involved, but also "here and present" with the mind fully engaged. By combining physical and mental focus, Bosu training will boost your performance across a wide continuum of activities, including sports, recreation, and daily tasks.

At the heart of the 3D system is a multipurpose, modular exercise platform with a balance ball surface in the middle. The platform serves as an exercise base by itself, but also attaches to an included balance bar and adjustable resistance tubing to give you even more workout flexibility. The balance bar makes the 3D System more accessible to beginners, but also encourages seasoned Bosu users to create a more varied and versatile workout program. The system also includes a workout program on DVD.

About BOSU
Invented by David Weck, the BOSU Balance Trainer debuted in 2000 and quickly became one of the most successful fitness training products on the market. Originally, the name "BOSU" was an acronym for Both Sides Up. It meant that the BOSU Balance Trainer could be used on either side, the dome or the platform. Today, the term BOSU has evolved beyond the product to now mean Both Sides Utilized, a mindful approach to exercise that is a step beyond traditional training. This clarity of who BOSU is and what they want to offer inspired the development of additional BOSU products and programming, all of which are grounded in exercise science and proven in real-life application.

BOSU Training is about expanding movement capabilities, reshaping bodies, and strengthening minds. It's about inserting thought into movement, being physically involved, and also being present and fully engaged in the training process. BOSU's products are known industry-wide for training balance, enhancing flexibility, and delivering killer cardio workouts. They have an unprecedented reputation for building strength and fine tuning skills for sport. But on their own, BOSU products are just molded plastic, weighted rubber, and stability balls with secret filling. You have to engage them in order to bring them to life! So, beyond their products, BOSU offers a system of mindful action, intentional movement, and smart science that produces results.

The BOSU training approach makes certain that when you get on the BOSU Balance Trainer or move with the BOSU Ballast Ball, you will get everything from a feel-good, get-fit, no-regrets training tool. Even more than that, you get an intelligent training method that transcends any piece of fitness equipment.

Bottom line, the stand IS sturdy but none of the holes lined up in the stand to assemble it.

I have been kind of sick of my treadmill/free weight workouts so I decided to look for something new that was not expensive, quick and maybe even fun...ish!
So I found this Bosu trainer. I just finished the first workout and it was incredible...really good for working on balance, but you can hold on throughout! It works your core muscles without you having to do any crunches, situps or other ungodly manoever...I mean, I can feel my abs right now, but not in a bad way...just in a way that lets me know I exercised them. This thing does cardio, strength and you can also stretch on it...the DVD that's included shows you how. For $114, I think this gives a lot of bang for the buck...and it feels very sturdy. Although it comes with a cheap pump, I had a bicycle pump that I blew it up with. So, for what it's worth, I would highly recommend this.

We've looked at several of these models for awhile and finally settled on buying the Bosu 3D System Balance Trainer. Weighing in at 33lbs its more bulky then heavy. One thing for certain, its not going to be moved around a lot. After going through and deciphering the enclosed instruction manual, I felt a sigh of relief in knowing that my inventory of parts and hardware was complete. That said, I began the assembly process.

The first thing I noticed was that some of the screw holes located under the base were covered and could not be lined properly with the platform. I discovered that the rubber plates (used for vibration and weight distribution) were the culprit. No worries, I used a flathead screwdriver to pry the glue mounted plates and realigned them with the holes. I added just a dab of shop glue for extra measure. I did not run into any other problems with alignment. Total assembly time was about 20 minutes.

It goes without saying the included pump is worthless. I saved the valve head and tossed the rest of the unit. I used my portable compressor to inflate the ball. At 39" x 29" x 49" it does take up some real estate. We decided to place the Bosu Trainer in the corner of the garage in front of the tv/dvd player.

Once in place, the system works like a charm with no issues. Even the ball seems to hold up well and does not have to be filled as often. The ball is gym quality and should last a long time. The balance bar is steady and fully adjustable. The resistance trainer is mounted with comfortable hand grips and above average tubing.

For those new to Bosu, its not rocket science. Primarily it covers the basics for strengthening up and using targeted core muscle groups. The enclosed dvd offers a good basic workout program.

The Bosu Ball is a great training aid for developing balance and core strength. The addition of the base and support makes it much easier for someone without great balance to get started on the ball. I would happily have given it five stars if I hadn't had to drill and file out the holes on the support brackets to make it fit. If my wife had wanted to put this together herself she could not have done so and would have had to sent it back.

The problem is in the location of the welded brackets. I understand the difficulty of doing the weld precisely, but clearly the manufacturer needs to improve their procedure. Until they do, I would not recommend anyone who is not prepared to do some non-trivial hole enlarging to buy the item as it must be just a matter of luck whether you get one that fits or one that doesn't.

It's a great package. Assembly wasn't hard at all, and there are a lot of workout DVDs included. It's surprising how intense the workout is - I did the first cardio workout today and my heart was pounding after 15 minutes (in a good way). Perfect for anyone who wants to work out but isn't a fan of gyms, especially in the winter when it's no fun to jog or bike outside.

One drawback - it's not all that easy to store. I had hoped the 3D system would fold down or something similar to store away quickly, but that's not the case. You can take off the top handles easily, but you'd still need a relatively large space to store the entire thing in. So, you may end up just leaving it fully assembled wherever you put it together. It's not an eyesore exactly, but it'd be nice to have it disassemble a bit so it could fit under a bed or in a small space.

Overall, though, it's a very good product and I think I'll get more than my money's worth out of it in exercise.

This Bosu in itself was used by my physical therapist because I needed help in regaining balance control. My walking was off balance due to a fall I had as well as a birth defect. She introduced me to this aparatus whic at first I was not confident that I could get on it and make it work with me. My PT then showed me how with er assistance. Pretty soon,I was on there and balancing myself just standing and quickly learned to balance myself without the support and spotting from my PT! I decided it would be a great way to practice at home and have a way to get exercise, too! After a few nights of web searching, I found this awesome deal with Amazon. It was to great of a deal to pass up! You will not find a better deal anywhere than Amazon for the Bosu 3 D System!
