About Good Natured Products, Inc.
Omniball® offers an unprecedented balance of both traditional and functional exercises which will carry you to an entirely new dimension of 360° movement. Resistance, range of motion, and difficulty will increase in relation to the user’s own ability.
Because Omniball® has no linear limitations and can be used on both hands and feet, its options for unique workouts, at all fitness levels, are endless. Omniball® enables any participant to progress at the appropriate pace for their skill level, even for those who may have limitations or are just starting to work out for the first time. On the other hand, for the elite athlete, Omniball® can provide the ultimate physical challenge. It offers the intensity needed to keep improving strength and flexibility with exercises that incorporate balance, core strength, stretching, and range of motion.
When my father was having problems with his shoulder and knees in the 1990s, I started thinking of a way to improve his physical therapy exercises and related equipment because they did not seem efficient or versatile enough. A friend constructed the first prototype using a pasta colander, a giant tennis ball and a bicycle pedal strap. It was inspiring, and the pedal strap even gave me the idea to use the ball on my feet, but it still lacked the ability to roll smoothly in every direction.
Shortly afterwards, while on my way to teach at a fitness conference, I saw a plane being loaded with huge cargo containers pushed over casters embedded in the floor and a lightbulb went on. Seven prototypes and almost two years of testing later, the Omniball® was born!
After the technology was patented for use in fitness, I began instructing Omniball® classes at the University of California, Irvine. Originally, I thought it would just be a great therapy tool and help with core strength training, but it soon proved to be much, much more. It is the most versatile product I have come across in my decades of fitness experience, working with all kinds of exercise equipment. Now, OmniWorks, LLC combines the wealth of experience of seasoned fitness manufacturing and marketing professionals with the inventor of the Omniball® to bring this great product to the masses.
