During the holiday season of 2016 many of us seen the Simply Fit Board appear in fitness stores, QVC and even Walmart. The device promises a slimmer waistline, as well as improving your balance. Does it do all it promises? Can a simple plastic balance board do all of this? Read the following review.
What is a Simply Fit Board?
Straight from ABC's Shark Tank the creators Linda Clark and Gloria Hoffmam choose Laurie Greiner as a partner and two years later it's a huge phenomenon. The board is simply a small curved piece of plastic. The creators explain it to be "a balance board with a twist". The fit board can be used easily anywhere: home, office, inside, outside or even while traveling. The Simply Fit Board can withstand up to 400 pounds without stress or cracking.
How Does the Simply Fit Board Work?
While the creators say the simply fit board is“a balance board with a twist” because you literally twist on the board. The use of a balance board usually means you stand in one spot and keep the board balanced on either side without it touching the floor. However, The Simply Fit Board is constructed to have a curve in the middle that lets you twist while working out.
Every muscle in your core is worked by simply twisting. You increase your heart rate, which burns unwanted fat in as little as 20 minutes a day.
Simply Fit Board comes with a sheet of 10 minute workouts and exercises you can perform. Some of the workouts include:
- A simple twist (you stand on the board and twist back and forth)
- Twisted bridges (tones your legs)
- Plank twists (place your two hands on the board while holding the plank)
You can also access 10 minute workouts online at www.simplyfitboard.com. Challenges are also frequently post there like the “squat and push up challenge” or the “six pack challenge” to keep your workouts varied.

It’s easy for me to use and I’m 60 and have limited movement range. Still getting used to the balancing, it’s difficult though I am getting better with each use. It’s an excellent workout and I highly recommend it to anyone. -Darlene
