Swiss Exercise Balls

A primary benefit of exercising with a Sissel Swiss exercise ball as opposed to exercising directly on a hard flat surface is that the body responds to the instability of the ball to remain balanced, engaging many more muscles Those muscles become stronger over time to keep balance. Most frequently, the core body muscles — the abdominal muscles and back muscles — are the focus of exercise ball fitness programs.

We are often asked to reccomend a chair for sitting the answer is the least comfortable to ensure clients dont spend hours in one position. Sitting on an exercise ball instead of a chair will be beficial because the abdominal and back muscles are constantly engaged and active maintaing proper posture and balance on the ball. 

If you are interested in exercising with a ball please speak to us at Spinal Joint. We also run a Swiss ball based core stability class at Esporta/ Virgin Active over Sainsburys on Richmond road at 7.15pm on Monday nights, this is open to all our clients at a cost of £5.
