creativity. Almost every member will say they want a stronger core, but
engaging them—via creative training tools—is the key to success. Check

The AIrEX BeBalanced! product line maximizes efficient training for heart and circulation,
body posture, equilibrium, and mind and soul. The AIrEX Balance-pad Elite and the AIrEX
Balance-beam are foam cushions filled with millions of tiny air bubbles. The company adds
that the destabilizing characteristics of its slip-proof BeBalanced products activate the
brain’s control functions.
“When using balance products, such as the AIrEX Balance-pad Elite, therapeutic and
training goals can be achieved more quickly,” points out Harald Werz, sales and marketing
manager at Alcan Airex AG. “This includes the improvement of inter- and intramuscular
coordination ability, as well as the reduction of the risk for injuries or falls. Thanks to
improved balance, users will experience stability and well-being. In addition, AIrEX
offers effective BeBalanced! training programs developed by specialists.”
