I'm interested in balance training... its a curiosity. I see these balance boards, or wobble boards. One I'm looking at is 15", tilts at 15, 19, and 22 degrees - for about $60. Like everything there's lots of different models and price ranges.
Anyone trained on one of these and felt it worth the investment? I occassionally go rock climbing, but otherwise I'm not in any sport where I'm trying to tweak my performance. Just curious where or how you noticed any benefits - either in daily life or when playing sports, etc.. Any feedback on specific models/units/training approaches appreciated too. Not to play steriotypes but it seems a lil girly of an excercise, but I'm thinking the looks of it deceiving?
For perspective if it helps I'm 28, 5'9" 175lbs - relatively fit with some definition.
