The new ActivMotion Bar, available through OPTP, Minneapolis, is designed to help challenge and activate the core.

As explained on the OPTP website, the core exercises that can be performed using the 4-foot-long, 4.5-pound ActivMotion Bar are made possible by the weighted ball bearings in the bar that shift during movement, creating instability.

The bar is designed for corrective fitness, physical therapy, active aging exercise, Pilates and golf training, per the website.

The bar is also available in five additional weights: 6, 8, 10, 15, and 18 pounds.

In addition, online educational and training videos are available with purchase.
