The GoFit Stability Disk is an excellent way to add a new level of difficulty to any workout, including yoga or pilates, while exercising core muscles to increase balance and develop stability. The disk includes an instructional manual led by Fitness Trainer, Brook Benton, showing movements that can be incorporated into your fitness routine.
"The more technology and the digital era evolves, the more time we find ourselves glued to our chairs at our home, office, or desk. The nature of gravity pushes our seated bodies down into these hard chairs, resulting in what I call the "computer" posture that involves a forward head, slumped shoulders, tight hip flexors, and an overused lower back. Although I don't work in an office setting, I am in a seated position at home usually for about 10-15% of my work day."
"Unlike a majority of people who are seated for much longer than that, I couldn't help but still wonder how I could improve my posture during this tedious seated position. An active GoFit product user, I was incredibly excited when I came upon the Stability Disc that I use as a core cushion for my chair at home then use as a training tool with clients, as it can be used in a variety of settings. The unstable environment it creates activates all my core muscles as well as my upper back muscles--those tend to weaken when we slump forward."
"Sitting on my Stability Disc when I'm working at my desk puts me in a proprioceptively enriched environment that subconsciously forces me to use my internal balance and core stabilizers to sit upright as intended- back straight, chest open, shoulders back, abs engaged. Because of the durability, simplicity, availability, and affordability of GoFit products, the majority of my clients now work their core out not just when we're training but while simply sitting at work or home on their Stability Disc- who knew being on the computer could be a great work out too!"

The 13" GoFit Stability Disk is made of easy-to-clean, soft red vinyl. Very portable and easy to store, the Stability Disk helps you reach expandable fitness goals—increase the difficulty as your ability improves. The smooth side of the disk is less difficult, whereas the textured "reflexology" side has a higher degree of difficulty, offering a more challenging workout. "Reflexology" is the act of massaging, or pushing on parts of the feet, for a beneficial effect on other parts of the body, and improved general health.
Also adjustable is the firmness of the Stability Disk (Needle included. Air pump not included). For a less difficult, or entry level workout, use less air in the Stability Disk. As you increase your balance and strength, fill the Stability Disk with more air and move toward a higher level of difficulty in your core training.
