60uP Balance Board (FREE DVD)
I ought to know what I need
To start with, I am 85 years old and I should know by now what I need and don't need. Even though I have fallen 3 times this year I tried to convince my wife I didn't need the balance board. My son called me and said Dad if you don't buy it I'm going to buy it for you. So I went out and bought one and am I glad I did. I have been feeling so much better exercising on the balance board that I have not missed a day of exercise since August 4th. My walk is stronger and I can walk down the street without looking like a ***** man. I can even stand in the yard and look straight up at the sky without losing my balance. My footfalls are more sure. I feel so much better about myself and my well-being now that I have used the balance board. Maybe even at 85 I don't know everything I need, thanks son and thanks 60up!
Vertigo? Seems to be Going with 60 up
I lost most of my hearing about 9 years ago and with it, I got the gift of VERTIGO. Love the movie, Hate the feeling. I was unable to do YOGA, tripped on the street a lot, and had bouts of dizziness that are quite unpleasant. Sometimes I just go on the balance board for a few minutes before heading to the store. I found that I tripped less. One great thing I was taught from the video is to look up not down. I was always afraid of tripping, so my eyes were always on the ground, and I still tripped over my own feet. Keeping my eyes on the road ahead (metaphorically and physically) has really helped. I am tripping less but worrying about tripping a lot less. I am still at the beginner level though I enjoy some of the advanced exercises to shake things up.I think the best thing the balance board has given me is confidence.
1 Week and I Already see Improvement
I'm still only doing warm up and quick start exercises 10 minutes twice a day and already feel improvement in my balance. Also do tip and balance as suggested in news letter while I watch tv. Tomorrow I'm going to extend exercise time to 15 minutes using DVD Beginners Level.
WORKS and I’m 90!
Shortly after my 89th birthday in March of 2019, I had a talk with myself because I could see that my body was going from bad to worse. I was sitting most of the time and getting no exercise. My balance was terrible, I was falling a lot and I was having to reach out and hold onto whatever was available to support myself when walking. My back hurt to the extent that I could not walk very far without holding onto something. I finally said to myself, “either I start exercising or I won’t be around much longer.” I started walking every day and took my walker with me. My first walker was a cheap one that left me hunched over, resulting in me not being able to walk very far. So, I went out and bought an upright walker and seriously started walking one to two miles per day. This was good exercise but it, unfortunately, didn’t do anything for my balance. In December I saw an advertisement for the 60uP board and decided that maybe it would help. When I called, I asked the customer service representative if it would work for someone as old as I was, the woman said “yes” and I immediately bought one. After using the 60uP board for a couple of weeks, I became totally frustrated and set the board aside. We moved to Washington state in March of this year, in the process of it all the 60uP board ended up stashed under the bed. Shortly after my 90th birthday, a friend from Texas reached out and asked if he could buy my board. I considered selling the board to him but figured the freight from Washington to Texas would be more than he was willing to pay. For some reason I got the board out and assembled it in my office, I stepped onto it and strangely enough, the board began working for me. By using Bob Eubanks three week program, I am working on the board daily. I found that not only was I enjoying it but that amazingly I began to regain my balance. I have yet to fall since then and I am walking normally without having to look for some sort of support. My feet feel the ground and my brain automatically centers me in and finds my balance. I have tripped several times but unlike before, my brain and feet corrected the situation resulting in me not falling. It really amazes me how the 60uP board has improved my life so much to where I believe it will add some years onto my life, being that I am in good health otherwise. I am currently working with the intermediate exercises and have slowly worked my way into the advanced exercises. Throughout my life I have exercised to some extent, I gave up smoking in 1964 and started jogging. This went on for thirty years until I had my left knee replaced. The replacement was great being that I was able to ski and hike on it for twenty years in my retirement until my balance completely left me. I enjoy working on the 60uP board because it challenges me and I am gaining more and more benefits from it every day. Having a 90-year-old body, I know I will never be as good as the instructors, Cathy and Bob but working out on the board has sure improved my balance. I feel like Bob Eubanks when he says that the 60uP board has made a huge difference in his life because it’s done the same for me. I called back my friend who offered to buy my board and recommended he buy one for himself! Thank you for developing the 60uP board, there are tons of advertisements online promising to improve one’s balance but I seriously doubt that any will do what the 60uP board has done for me.
It really works!
When I first got on, it wobbled so much I thought this will never work. After three days though I finally was able to balance and I could tell the difference walking upstairs without a handrail. I am very impressed with this piece of equipment. I know it is a little on the expensive side but it was worth every penny.
I bought this for my 81 year old mother who has a broken hip and has become extremely weak and has poor balance. We have just started with the first 3-4 simple exercises and the board is so safe and stable yet gives her the perfect workout at her level. I am grateful to you for developing something like this that I can work with my mom at home - maybe I will be able to keep her around longer!
This 60uP IS amazing!!!
The 60uP board IS AMAZING just like Bob Eubanks says! I am using it every day (if possible) and my balance has greatly improved. I noticed after a week or so of using the beginner's routine that when I was standing in one place, my feet felt like they were rooted in the ground like tree roots and my legs felt like they were sturdy tree trunks. My body weight was so balanced! It happened gradually, too, without any pain in my muscles. I am now switching between the intermediate and advanced routines so my upper body will get strengthened as well as my legs and am looking forward to seeing more videos on YouTube. The only thing I don't like about the board is having to switch the poles in order to use the bands. Sometimes I have difficulty in putting the pins in and through the holes. I have trouble with my lower back, so I can't lean over like Dan shows in the video, so I have to squat down on the floor to move the poles. I wish they were easier to move. However, I still am giving the 60uP board a five star rating because if you are consistent with using the board every day, you WILL see results and will see them fairly quickly. It IS amazing and I am very glad that I invested in the 60uP board for my health and my husband's health.
Your Biggest Cheerleader!
I saw the board advertised on TV & was intrigued. I do not have any medical issues that impact my balance; however, I have been a klutz all of my life & felt the 60Up might be beneficial as it seemed my balance was getting worse as I aged. As soon as the board arrived, I was hooked! I LOVE using it! It’s a quality piece & the support that comes with it in terms of the Facebook/YouTube video instructions is fantastic! I am such a cheerleader for the 60Up that my friends are convinced I’m getting a commission. So far, I have “sold” 5 units; in fact I recently visited family & friends in N Carolina & I took the board with me so that a friend who has some neurological issues could try it. Not only has he since ordered his own but my brother’s 90 year old mother-in-law was so encouraged that I left my board with her & now have to buy another for myself...which I am happy to do! I am really impressed with how invested the 60Up team is in everyone’s success & how hard they work to help all of us reach our goals. I am not usually so effusive when it comes to reviewing a product, but this one deserves all the accolades!
Who was this for?
This was for me, but the wife loves it too. We use it about 5 times a week, doing beginning and intermediate exercises mostly, with some improvisations to make it more interesting.
did not meet expectations
i was expecting to have a chart or something OTHER THAN YOUTUBE instructions to follow. Not so, I detest youtube so really have not used the board. VERY IRRITATING.
Hi Susan, The Balance Board should have also had a DVD included. If it did not, please let us know and it will be sent to you. Additionally, the videos are also available on the website as is a written manual and Calendar Guide for the 3-week workout in our "videos" section. https://60up.com/pages/balance-exercises If you are on Facebook, there is also a 60uP Members group that provides support to each other and is a wonderfully positive and supportive community. Would encourage you to join if interested! Please reach out with any questions or concerns that you might have. We are here to help. ~ CustomerSuccess@60up.com
The balance board system is very good, but the process of doing the exercises takes time. I am 90 yrs. young and had 6 surgeries in and out of the hospital for a year so I am slow and need a lot of rest, but if God gives me the strength, I will succeed in regaining my balance. Thank you Harold
It is truly amazing how quickly the body responds to this simple, yet effective, exercise technique. Really is possible to "teach old dog new tricks." However, it does require consistency; so I've started over a couple of times. Will be keeping at it until I progress past the first 3 weeks of warmup movements. Am looking forward to the next phase in reconnecting brain-to-muscle function. Thank You, 60up!!!!!
Great balance aid

Love it. Just what I needed
