If you are a runner or cyclist and have not done much in the way of improving your lower body balance, this Bongo Board will make a huge difference! I had to stop running marathons 5 years ago due to an imbalance in my hip muscles. (If I had known about this board 5 years ago, I would have saved myself many trips to physical therapy and my massage therapist!)

Yes, I have (and use) an exercise ball and balancing pillows, but this Bongo Board really works the adductors, abductors, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, etc. Using the board, makes the muscles start working together. It is a real good workout, just trying to balance on the board! After a couple of days, my hip pain has disappeared! My hip feels great! I can't wait to start training for my next marathon.

Pros: If you want to improve your lower body balance, coordination and strength, try the Bongo Board. It worked for me!

Cons: Be patient, it takes a couple of days to actually be able to balance on the board. Make sure that you start with something to hold onto, like a wall or back of a couch.

My mom bought this for me as a birthday gift and I enjoy it very much.
For me, I did not think it was too hard to balance on as long as you get some practice.
Its fun to play with and is exciting if you are good at balancing, but you still have to be careful if you fall.
I found it hard to put the blue wheel on, but that's probably not too hard for adults.
It is best if you begin using the bongo board on the carpet since it is easier to use and is slower that way.
Once you are used to using the bongo board on the carpet and you want a challenge, try using it on a harder surface.
I hope this review was helpful.:)

I've had the Bongo board for a few days now and am very happy so far. Very solid construction! One great feature is that the axis of the roller stays connected to the board by a stretchy cord that runs along the length of the bottom of the board. This prevents the roller from dangerously flying off across the room if you lose your balance. (I have seen other balance boards where the roller is not connected and this could be very dangerous, since it could fly off and break something inside your home.) The roller is stopped on either end of the board by two trucks so it won't roll completely out from under you.

It is very difficult to do at first! Beginners definitely need some chairs or something to hang onto, or a spotter. My friend who is a long time skateboarder tried it and thought it was also pretty tricky to balance - it is a different feeling from skateboarding.

It comes with a booklet describing the right 'form' and suggested ways to use the board and some tricks to learn once you get advanced.

I was gifted this by a friend, a friend who clearly wants me dead.

My obituary will note that this this product is incredibly challenging, core toning, and my direct cause-of-death.

Seriously though, this is a challenge level many, many, levels of difficulty beyond any other balance/wobble board/pad/circle I have ever used. For reasons beyond my ken, I can't just drop the nose to the ground when I lose my balance. Oh, no. Instead, I flail around until I fall off onto the nearest hard surface.

Not a novice device, and potentially dangerous as hell. Then again, most any athletic endeavor has some degree of risk.

PS. Don't be a moron. Put on your helmet. :)

When in my teens and twenties, I was a very active skateboarder and surfer, so I am familiar with boards with similar design and construction. I am now in my mid-fifties, and purchased this board 8 months ago to use in physical therapy for my back.

I used the board probably 7 times altogether, and the glued laminate, which makes up the body of the board, began separating and seriously cracking, causing a fissure in the center of the wood.

The board is now unsafe to use, after only 7 uses! I contacted the company and sent photographs which clearly illustrated the cracks in the wood.
I told them that I simply wanted a replacement, because it is clear from the photos that the board is unsafe.

Rather than stand behind the product, the service person told me that the separation and cracks do not affect the structural integrity of the board.

For being a company which markets products used for physical therapy, they do not seem concerned with their customers health and well being!

Hands down the most fun piece of exercise equipment I've ever bought. I play/exercise with it whenever I am watching television. Even better, it's actually working!! I've lost a good inch off of my waist, my posture is much better, and I swear I think faster on my feet. I don't really know why. Strangely, I also find it helps me when I get writer's block.
