Balance boards? Ok, they can be fun indoors if it’s raining. I suppose they actually do help your balance skills. Enter the iJoy, a motorized balance board. This decade’s mechanical bull or just plain old bull? The illustration of the “bad Idea” is from the product’s owner’s manual. Nice use of lowercase “i” to imply it’s somehow internet/iPod related.
Not much to say about this except at $450 you’d probably be better off with the old-timey version, or maybe, dare I say it, a Skateboard!?
No matter the season, no matter the board sport, the motorized iJoyÂ® Board balance trainer keeps your legs fresh, toned and ready to carve the slopes, grind a rail or catch a wave. Just hop on and press a button on the infrared wireless remote control and experience the simulated motion of a snowboard, skateboard or surfboard in action.
By maintaining your board stance on the unique non-slip platform, you increase your core balance and coordination skills, while sculpting the specific muscles you need to excel at any board sport. Test your skills by varying the speed of the iJoyÂ® Board – slow, medium or fast – or choose the 15-minute program that intermittently varies the board’s speed. Features an automatic shutoff after 15 minutes of activity.
