io-Ball: The elliptical Fitness-Sensation

io-Ball | Fitness-Sensation | ioBall The most modern training methods ask for conditions, which are specially adjusted for a certain action. For the most effective use in fitness, sport or rehabilitation the usual form of a ball had to be replaced by something new. The result is the io-Ball® with his unique elliptic form.

The award winning io-Ball is the new fitness equipment for your body and soul. Even at reasonable price and its being compact, it offers a highly effective training which is unique in its effect and can be used by everybody. It is a completely new concept which can be realized optimally with the io-Ball. Why it is like that we will explain on those next pages. Please have a look at our io-Ball videos, to fully understand the practical use.

With our muscles and our own body weight power is forced onto the io-Ball and passed back to your body again. The reactive surface of our io-Ball forces the muscles to a permanent counter-reaction, to keep either a certain position or to be able to make movements save and efficient. The counter-reaction is done by our muscle system automatically. In an instinctive and natural way an optimal ensemble acting of the muscles takes place.

The io-Ball increases your stamina, coordination, strength, rapidity and flexibility. Known trainings – for example Pilates or isometric training – reach a new quality and intensity by using the io-Ball. In addition to it the explosive and rapidity can be increased. This happens through stretching, bending, stopping and rotating movements. This variety helps that the io-Ball is a special part of the new cardio-core training-concept.

Andrea Burkhardt: Inventor of the io-Ball

Andrea Burkhardt's io-BallOur upright walk is a masterpiece of evolution. It is not for granted to maintain this achievement and asks for an optimal solution. I see it as my task to develop it.

Modern life has a negative influence on our body. Sitting activity mould our daily life and a lot of us suffer of lack of motion. Today we have to compensate mal-postures as well as lost motion intelligence by specific training. My io-Ball was developed specially to remove those problems. The training has to be learned easily, effective, simple, applicable everywhere and for every grade of fitness and age.

When developing the io-Ball all was perfectly coordinated. The elliptic form has proved as optimal in our tests because due to the resonance results of this form it is specially challenging. Due to different alignments one can reach maximum variation-possibilities from sport to medical rehabilitation. The training intensity can vary from soft to sweaty. The possibilities are boundless and offer a big freedom for your own creativity.

Our website should answer you many basic questions and give you a good overview of the application possibilities. If you have additional questions or suggestions please don’t hesitate to contact me. We really like to help you and am sure we can turn your ideas into reality. I am looking forward to your feedback and I wish you lots of fun with the io-Ball - your Andrea Burkhardt.
