How to Use The Flexboard

The FlexBoard is an excellent exercise for everyday life.  Frequent and proper use will help keep you flexible and healthy.

To begin, make sure the Flexboard is on a flat surface.  With either bare feet or flat soled shoes, ‘get ready’ by placing both feet on the side platforms of the Flexboard.  As you do this, hold on to a stable fixture such as a wall, chair, doorframe, counter, or stair rail for stability and support.  

Once in place, tighten your stomach muscles to ‘set your core,’ and then proceed by placing one foot on the middle slant while keeping the other foot on the side platform.  Be sure to stand upright with your back straight.  And then hold for 30 seconds.  After 30 seconds, alternate feet and repeat three times for each leg.  The goal is 30 seconds 3 times alternating back and forth.  

 If your legs are feeling too tight, we suggest 10 seconds and then alternate.  If you need added stability, use a doorframe to hold on as you stretch.

The Flexboard is designed for all ages and is a safe and effective way to stretch your calf muscles - helping your feet, knees, hips and lower back stay flexible and strong.  The Flexboard can be used any time; anywhere and is designed for your convenience. Feel free to stretch in the kitchen while waiting for a pot to boil, at work during a stretch break, in the bathroom while brushing your teeth, or in the living room while watching TV.  

You can even use it on the field during outdoor activities.

Designed as a piece of furniture, the Flexboard can be easily left out in a convenient location for everyday use.  For effectiveness, the Flexboard should be used at least once a day, but feel free to stretch 3, 5, or even 10 times a day.  There are no limits.
