What exactly is a Pono Board? Do you surf on it? Fling it? Predict the future by letting ancient Hawaiian spirits telepathically move aqua-colored balls around on its sleek wooden surface until your destiny is revealed?
Nope, it's none of these things. A Pono Board is a kinder, gentler balance board that can be used to add a bit of instability to various exercises in a way that is mercifully unlikely to send you sprawling on your face in an ignominious heap of kluzitude.
According to The Pono People, it was designed to feel like a beach workout, actively engaging the core, but not too difficult.
But that's not why I eagerly agreed to acquire and review a springy thingy of my very own. (Disclaimer: I didn't pay for it). What was the reason?
The Pono Board is also designed to function as a stand-up desk accessory, yay!
Here's some more info and a verdict on how I like my Pono Board.
