I was given the Simply Fit Board as seen on TV as a gift this weekend. My father has a habit of watching infomercials and sometimes I end up with the product. This has happened with the power pressure cooker. I had seen the Simply Fit Board on the television show, Shark Tank, when Lori Greiner put up funding to bring the product to market. It looked interesting, but didn’t seem like it would be an intense workout. I was pleased to get one to review. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the intensity of the workout!

Simply Fit Board, Product Overview
The Simply Fit Board is a plastic board that is shaped like a skateboard with a curve in the middle. The board creates a bit of instability during your workout. You can balance on the Simply Fit Board and use a unique twisting motion and pivoting action that will engage and tone the entire body. The Simply Fit Board helps to strengthen the abs, legs and core.
The Simply Fit Board is lightweight, portable and stores away easily. It measures 24.5x 18 x 3/4 inch. It weighs 3 pounds and supports up to 400 pounds.
The Simply Fit Board includes a user guide and DVD workout video. It comes in blue, green, magenta and orange.
The Good & the Bad
PRO #1: One of the great things about the Simply Fit Board is that it works your stabilizing muscles. It creates a bit of instability as you are performing exercises that trigger the stabilizing muscles to work. This increases the amount of work that your body is doing.
PRO #2: It is simple and fun. Twisting on the Simply Fit Board doesn’t feel like a workout at first. It just seems like fun. However, as you add in different exercises and change up your routine, you really start to feel your muscles working!
PRO #3: It is compact. I love this aspect of the Simply Fit Board. It is perfect for a small apartment or home gym. You can store it away in a closet or under a bed and whip it out when you need it.
CON #1: Some users have reported that it is cheaply made and breaks after a few months. Those who reported that also reported that they were able to receive a replacement. I’ve only had mine for 3 workouts, so I don’t know if it will break just yet, but I’ll keep you posted if I change my opinion on this product.
CON #2: It will mat the carpet down where you are using it. You can use a mat to protect your flooring.
Who is Simply Fit Board for?
This is for the individual who wants to make the most of her home gym. It is great for people who want to workout at home, but want to have some variety to their workouts. It is wonderful for people who are relying on light weights or body weight exercises to build their strength because they don’t have a lot of room for heavy weights in their home gym.
The Simply Fit Board can be fun for teenagers and kids who want to burn off some of their excess energy as they watch television. They will have fun trying to balance on it and enjoy twisting around.
The Simply Fit Board only supports up to 400 pounds, so it is not for the extremely obese individual. The Simply Fit Board can be used by average and overweight individuals safely. It is also safe for children over the age of 6.
Simply Fit Board Tools & Training
The Simply Fit Board comes with a workout DVD to instruct its users on how to safely use the Simply Fit Board and incorporate it into their workouts. While it is intuitive to step on the Simply Fit Board and do some twists, I found the DVD very helpful in providing exercises that I hadn’t thought about using with the Simpy Fit Board.

Simply Fit Board Price

My Final Opinion of the Simply Fit Board
First and foremost, I must admit that I love the workout with the Simply Fit Board. I can tell that this is going to strengthen my core and is improving my posture. I can feel the leg muscles talking to me after only 3 workouts. I felt the workouts were fun. I even did one in the morning and in the evening yesterday.
Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed to see how many reviewers on Amazon were saying that their boards cracked after a few months. I’m personally going to enjoy the workouts with mine as much as possible. If mine cracks, I probably will look for other home workouts and workout products instead of buying a new one. They will replace it if it breaks, so that is a plus. I’m not sure how long they continue to replace them though.
