History of the Balance Ball and Bosu
The Bosu is a relatively new fitness tool yet very common and very popular tool introduced in 1999 by an innovator and visionary, David Weck. A self-proclaimed "physiology geek" who has poured his efforts into the study of physiology. David is "a voracious reader" who draws tremendous influence from the works of Moshe Feldenkrais, Ida Rolf, and F.M. Alexander, all of whom were pioneers in somatic (body) education. He continues to expands his knowledge in diverse areas including Traditional Chinese Medicine and Tai Chi Chuan.
Bosu is pronounced "Bo" like the boy's name and "Sue" like the girl's name. David Weck developed this unusual fitness tool which means "both sides up" or to actively engage both sides in training building upon his philosophy that balance or functional training is the foundation for all sports and exercise.
Elite athletes and their head trainers, strength and conditioning coaches know the efficiency and effectiveness of this tool to train balance, core stability and proprioception. Many feel the proprioception tools such as the Bosu Balance Trainers and the Swiss Ball have taken both sports and fitness into a new realm and was the beginning of functional training taking target toning and strength to a new level of agility and refinement.
"But on their own, Bosu products are just molded plastic, weighted rubber, and stability balls with secret filling. You have to engage them in order to bring them to life! So, beyond our products, we offer a system of mindful action, intentional movement and smart science that produces results."
Ambidexterity training is training of the hands and eyes to effectively switch and engage with no favoritism. David developed another training tool called theQuick Hands Bola Trainer.
David's Philosophy on His Personal Fitness
If Jack LaLane was the father of strength and body building, David Weck is the forerunner or founding father in the United States for functional training. To quote David:
"I don't lift heavy weights like I used to very often these days. But I perform exercises with ropes and sticks/bars that most "stronger guys" simply can't handle - because they don't train the way I do.
