Will it actually make a difference?

If I already exercise, is it still useful?

Yes! The Sturdey is unique because it trains your brain and balance. Others forms of exercise do not train coordination and stability like the Sturdey does.

How much space do I need to use it?

I have designed countless drills for you and you don't need a big room or a basketball court to do them!

1. Fun — When I bring my Sturdeys to retirement homes, seniors tell me they're having fun!
