HealthBeat® Balance Steps - Proper Use
Video features the proper use of the Health Beat outdoor exercise equipment Balance Steps system.
[video: Scene fades into a man dressed in a warm up track suit standing next to a boy dressed in workout clothes. They both stand next to the Balance Steps system. The system is made of an arch beam low to the ground with five padded circular steps along the beam. Chris Nelson a certified fitness trainer explains the proper use of the exercise equipment.]
Chris: The Health Beat Balance Steps. These are designed to take the focus off of muscle strength and endurance and focus more on flexibility, mobility, and balance. For beginners this can be used as a balance beam. So, the user is going to step on each step while holding onto the hand rail and again focusing on balance.
[video: the boy steps up onto the first circular step and grabs the hand rail. He takes his time stepping to each step. Camera switches to a side view as the guy walks across the steps. Camera pulls back for a full view of the system as the boy walks back to where he started.]
Chris: For more advanced users this can help promote muscle strength by stepping on each step individually and driving the body up and engaging the glutes and the quads.
[video: The boy stands on the side of the Balance Steps and sides steps up and then back down from each step. The camera switches to a front close-up of the boy’s shoes as he side steps up and down from each step.]
Chris: The varying levels will also engage different muscles.
