Get On The Ball

Stability balls for fitness aren't just for kids.


The Stability Ball is often used by people who work in offices and are required to sit at a desk most of the day. By replacing their chair with the ball, the abdominal and back muscles are constantly engaged and active in order to maintain proper posture and balance. Sitting on the ball rather than a chair allows them to exercise while they’re working.

Once you become comfortable exercising with the Stability Ball, you can incorporate many of the exercises you normally do utilizing weights and a flat bench: presses, flyes, curls, etc. In addition to working the targeted body part, you continue to work your core and perfect your balance. It’s a win-win combination. And don’t forget, it is a ball, so when you’re not using it to exercise the kids have something else to play with. Get on it—today!
