The Best Balance Boards

Whether you’re doing yoga, cardio, or just at your standing desk, balance boards are a great addition to your daily routine because they improve your balance and burn calories. There are three kinds to pick from: rocker boards, wobble boards, and roller boards. The smaller your board is and the more it is able to tilt, the more intense your workout will be. Not sure where to start? Check out our take on popular balance boards below to find the perfect addition to your routine.

The Revolution 101 is a roller style board, which means it balances a skateboard-style board atop a roller. It’s 30 inches long, which will allow you to position yourself comfortably. It also allows wide angles, which will give you a more intense workout. Don’t worry if you’re a beginner, though - it has roller stops along its edges to prevent you from falling if you shift too far. This board is lightweight and portable, but it’s still heavy duty and can hold over 400 pounds. The grip is even softer than normal grip tape so it won’t scratch your feet. Ding: Because of its shape, it’s usable in a limited number of yoga positions. Get it here!

This board is available in four colors, and you can even choose to buy it with resistance bands for an additional fee. It’s also made of wood and super heavy-duty. The board can support up to 300 pounds. Ding: Because it’s made of wood, this board is heavier and not as portable as other picks. Buy here now!

This URBNFit wobble board has the most intense tilt of any wobble board on our list at 30 degrees. This tilt, along with its 15-inch diameter, will make for an intense workout.

It even comes with a free guide on different exercises you can use with the board. Ding: Because this board is more intense, we do not recommend using it for extended periods of time or for a standing desk. Get it here!
