The most fun piece of core exercise equipment is hands down the Bongo Board which is comparable to a see-saw that the user usually stands on, with the left and right foot at opposite ends of the board.

You don"t have to be a professional athlete to benefit from the use of core exercise equipment. In fact a strong core muscle group is essential for everyone. For the non professional athlete having a stronger core muscle group can help us with day to day living. Just think of all the physical activities you do every day at home and at work. Your day is filled with bending, lifting, twisting, carrying and reaching overhead - all of these movements pass through the core muscles. When you get older, the lack of having a strong core really becomes a safety issue. The core muscles help you with everyday activities, which as you age become more and more difficult. Simple things we do as part of our independent living regiment grooming, dressing, sitting in a chair or simply standing still are just a few of the many daily actions that rely on your core. For senior citizens balance and stability does become a safety issue and not taking care of this important muscle group with even the most basic core exercise equipment can increase your risk of falling because these muscles have become weaker and balancing the body more difficult.
Here are two favorite pieces of core exercise equipment for the beginner. Core Stretch - This piece of exercise equipment is easy enough for the beginner, yet with a few twists can become very challenging. Not only does it strengthens your core muscle group, it also stretches them, which is very important when starting a workout routine. The Core Stretch helps keep your back, shoulders, hips, and legs muscles loose & flexible. CoreStretch is an innovative design to achieve better stretch in your legs, shoulders, and back. Proper use elongates the spine rather than forcing your back to curve - stretching your core. CoreStretch allows you to stretch yourself back into shape as it works your ligaments, muscles and tendons in your back, as well as ones in your legs and arms that work in accordance with your back.
