The Swiss Ball is also known by a number of different names, including exercise ball, gym ball, pilates ball, sports ball, fit or fitness ball, stability ball, therapy ball, yoga ball, balance ball, physioball, or body ball. Based on the number of exercise books written about using a fitness ball at home, the gym folks better start buying them for the workout crowds. It is the perfect compliment to a walk or run exercise regime.

A primary benefit of exercising with a Fitness 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 the core muscles. Those with lower back pain benefit greatly from exercise on fitness balls and are commonly used in physical therapy. In addition to strengthening, exercise ball workouts teach and improve posture, balance, coordination, and flexibility. The gorwing populatiry of Pilates, a workout regime that makes use of exercise balls, is helping make the balls more popular. The benefits of the ball is that it keeps you active while sitting. But don't take a bat to these round balls since they are made of plastic and filled with air. The bounce is mild on the exercise balls because the ball shape gives slightly with weight pressure.

Office Stability Ball
Some people sit on a Stability Ball instead of a chair, because this position requires them to engage abdominal and back muscles and maintain proper posture to remain balanced on the ball. In European classrooms, the balls are often used instead of chairs. More schools are adopting stability balls as seats for students around the fourth grade.
Many offices across the country are replacing all of their office chairs for stability balls. When muscles are engaged employees stay more focused.

The stability balls can also be found with a rolling base. Check out our Office Ball Chairs for more options.

The Balance Balls are also widely used in Yoga and Pilates exercise routines. Follow these links for more Yoga Equipment and Pilates equipment.

Frequently Asked Questions:

1) What is the right size stability ball?
It mainly depends on your height. The common answer among fitness trainers is that you should select an exercise ball size where you can sit with knees bent at a 90 - degree angle:
  • Up to 5'4" tall use 45cm
  • 5'5" to 5'7" use 55cm
  • 5'8" to 6' use 65cm
  • Over 6' use 75cm

    If you were to only get one size I would recommend the size that allows a person to sit on the ball and keep a 90 degree bend at the knees and hips. However, many exercises require different size Stability Balls in order to provide the proper intensity, such as performing an abdominal stretch while lying on the ball: A larger ball provides a more gentle stretch than a smaller ball.

    2) Is a deflated gymnic ball more or less stable?
    Although a deflated ball has more surface area contact with the ground, it is less stable due to the slow reaction forces with the body surface (e.g. the hands). It can be difficult to maintain the center of mass under the body’s base of support with a deflated ball, thus making it hard to balance.

    3) Does one develop stability or balance when using the gym exercise ball?
    Experts have claimed that exercises requiring less force develop balance, while exercises requiring more force develop stability.
