j/fit’s 6″ Balance Pods are extremely versatile and can be used to improve your balance, core strength, agility, coordination and flexibility. Just lay these pods on the floor and walk from one to the next for a balance exercise, or stand on them pebble-side-up for some self myofascial release of your plantar fascia. These pods make a great addition to any fitness routine or as a daily wellness practice to help take care of your feet and work on your balance. They can be used in your home or outdoors, making use easy and convenient. Great for all ages, these pods are really a fun exercise for kids and adults — you won’t even realize you’ve been working out.
You can use them in two different ways: Put the flat side down to get the hang of it, and then flip it to pebble-side-down for an exercise in instability. The textured side is also used for rehabilitation and massage therapy of your plantar fascia. Ease your weight onto your foot and begin slowly rocking back and forth then side to side on either one or two feet. This will help to break up your plantar fasciitis — but start slow and work your way into it; don’t be too aggressive at first.
