60uP Balance Board
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.
Using 60 up
I am 85 years old and I have a balance problem. I have been using the board for about 3 weeks and I am improving, but I have taken it slow.
Great video instructions, easy to follow. Nice to have FB and YOUTUBE links so I can do the program while watching TV. The caring follow-up from Dan and company is just beyond words. Thx much. I am still going slow, but sure!!
good start long way to go...awesome
Quick progress-- no electronics
I was able to quickly see improvement in my dynamic balance. I noticed it first as I climbed the 15 steps up to my 2nd story wood shop. Easy to use. Still on first 3-week program.
Wish I had gotten sooner!
I was in a motorcycle accident 8 years ago with several broken bones. After surgeries and long PT was still having trouble walking outdoors, falling, and a fractured vertabrae.. After using 60 up, I am less unsteady and can navigate stairs much easier and quicker. And only on the intermediate level!
Well built, good videos.
It arrived within a few days. I assembled it by the instructions in the video, and it was easy for me - a 60 year old woman, I consider myself pretty healthy walking daily, but this workout is great for the small balance muscles that don’t normally get worked. I searched for something less expensive, but this is worth the money. It’s the only one with poles to keep you stable,
So far, so good
I am trying to set up a regular workout program. But so far have been working with the beginners program for about 2 wks. I definitely see results. I love it!
60up Balance Board
Very easy going Almost instantaneous results.
Slow but steady wins the race.
Chemo induced neuropathy has taken away my balance. I am following the program VERY SLOWLY and CAREFULLY - now on step 3 - very shaky. I am determined to stick with it!
