First of all you need to select a personal trainer for you. Pick a male of female trainer and this person will be your motivator and the onscreen coach that will be pushing you hard each work out.
To get going and get your heart rate up and you moving you should be doing cardiovascular exercises. This will be for you fat burners out there. Use the balance board for step aerobics, hula hood, or boxing to get your heart rate up and the calories burning. You need to be doing at least 30mins of this daily to be making progress.
Choose strength training to get a proper work out. To start choose upper body, lower body and core for an all over body work out. You need to sand comfortably on the balance board and in the correct alignment for the lower body work out with exercises such as squats and lunges. For the upper body you will be doing a variety of push up exercises on the board. Yoga poses are very good for strength and balance and you will be going through a great deal with the program and getting that core solid.
You need to be doing strength training every other day as a day of muscle rest will help you grow as they repair the selves.

Standing on the balance board and performing balance training exercises such as skateboarding and juggling with increase you body stability (your core) this in turn helps you train harder with other exercise.
Any areas in your body you find stiff or in pain stretching will help. Chest exercises will get your posture sorted as you aim to keep proper alignment on the board with the programs. You should perform stretching on a daily basis as well to help your muscles recover from exercise.
