Why BOSU® over the knock-offs

Why BOSU® over the knock-offs

A word from the inventor of the BOSU® Balance Trainer, David Weck


2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the BOSU® Balance Trainer.  

 The motivation behind the BOSU® Balance Trainer has always been an unyielding passion and commitment to providing the greatest value possible to fitness professionals and the people they train.  

 I have fond memories of “the launch” back in 1999.... the 100’s of hand-made prototypes I sold to the US Ski Team, Major League Baseball, the NFL, NBA, NHL, physical and occupational therapists and more.

It was those hand-made prototypes that took 6 hours to build and held together with staples, duct tape, and glue that got the ball rolling - pun intended.

I can’t tell you the excitement I felt when I finally designed and built the factory produced BOSU® Balance Trainer you (and millions of people across the globe) have now.  

I chose to manufacture the BOSU® Balance Trainer in the USA (before it was fashionable) and went the extra yard to build the highest quality product with the elegant simplicity that defines a BOSU® Balance Trainer.  

Today you can buy a knock-off, but it will never be as good as the Original. The attention to detail to get the elastic quality of the dome just right for example is something the copycats don’t know, let alone care about. Even though it costs more to make the quality standard we insist upon - it is certainly worth it. 

Today I am even more excited than I was 20 years ago. The experience and training knowledge we’ve gleaned from 20 years of training people of all ages and abilities gave us the insight to design the new dome on our NexGen™ BOSU® Balance Trainer.

You see, in addition to providing the highest quality product on the market — what sets BOSU® apart from the copycats is the education. No one knows how to get more from the BOSU® Balance Trainer than we do.

 In looking ahead, I want to thank everyone who’s been a part of this incredible story thus far.... because together we have, and continue to, make the world a better place through health, fitness, and function.
