Has anyone got fat driving a OW ?



  • Yes. I walk almost zilch now. In the two years I've owned the OW I have gained weight because of a lack of exercise. I thought this exact thought the other day "Have I put on weight becasue of the board or because of being a couple years older?" Who knows... No big deal... I'll just start eating less. Small price to pay for the best toy ever!! FYI: I still go to the gym about three times a week for cardo.



  • Have gained a lot of muscle mass since starting to ride the onewheel. I lug it up and down at least 16 flights a day (fml... but I'm having fun) so that is probably my cardio. The way I ride is very aggressive and has me sweating profusely



  • I ride my Onewheel to the gym :)



  • Because of OW I'm getting more vitamin D than I used to. Just today I was at the Detroit Slow Roll, if it wasn't for the OW I would have never gotten sun burnt! 😀



  • Come to think of it I not only gained weight sense I bought my first OneWheel I lost my close up vision. I blame OneWheel. Or it could be my age. Nearly 50. LOL



  • I got mine to strengthen my legs after a long period of bed rest...
    Totally worked better than I hoped. So, I got more fit...



  • Try doing squats on the onewheel while going around 10ish mph it's way harder than normal... the most body transformation I've seen which I'm trying to reduce is how many Injurys I have, I do a lot of boardsports; wakesurf, wakeboard, snowboard, longboard, skateboard, and onewheeling. So it kinda sucks especially for wateraports that I have so many open wounds while I'm In the lake behind the boat or at the cable park. I am looking to get into some wakesurfing competitions so I don't really need tons of open wounds while I'm competing... so I'm getting elbow pads and wrist guards. But seriously try doing squats while cruising on the onewheel. Or go to a playground jump from the onewheel onto like a bar you can to pull-ups on it's pretty fun to do that.



  • @HansBoobie I ride mine to the gym too.



  • I ride mine to the pizza shop.

  • @sonny123 That fork and knife on your pizza slice is a confession to a crime.



  • @shattle

    lol.. Mind you, it's the first time I try caesar salad slice. Not bad.



  • Little carving on the +
    Guy on the bicycle at the end is waiting for his +, due end of June.
    Heck I'll have someone to ride with...

  • Haha I have thought about this too!! Does it make me lazy?!? Am I gaining more or less weight?
    Every time I use my OW, I feel like I am getting my calf raises in at the gym. It may be the way I ride but remember your first ride on the OW? When we were still learning, riding the OW for hours trying to get better. I felt like I was on the mountain snowboarding all day falling and getting back up. I am currently still active in sports (golf, lacrosse, basketball volleyball) and I feel like the OW helps strengthen my core and keeps me somewhat in shape. If you're looking for the 6 pack abs, I would say the OW can help as a warm up, but you need to put in the extra work at the gym. Be careful riding when you do Leg Day because the footpad sensors can be very sensitive when your legs are shaking. Overall, I think the OW does not make you shed the extra pounds you're looking for. Don't let that stop you from riding!



  • I have ridden to qdoba before and also I rode inside of Safeway, I needed bananas the floor was so slippery I was over rotating my 180's lol 😂



  • I ride mine to Mister Softee.
