Balance Balls & Exercise Ball Supplies
Exercise balls had humble beginnings in a Swiss physical therapy program. In the last 50 years, these puncture-resistant stability balls have become a staple of physical therapy and individual exercise programs. Gaiam has revolutionized these stability balls, offering multiple sizes and even a ball designed for the novice that helps to prevent embarrassing falls while exercising.
Balance balls can be used in a variety of exercises to provide resistance and to challenge core muscles to keep you balanced while working out. You can use these sturdy balls to balance during abdominal exercises, to engage additional muscles while weight training, or to add variety to your cardio workouts. With a simple valve stem, the air pressure in these balls can be adjusted to completely personalize your workout.
Whether you use your exercise ball as part of a bigger workout routine, to replace your uncomfortable chair at the office, or to target stubborn muscles, you will not regret adding this piece of equipment to your exercise arsenal. Anyone from a beginner to a professional can benefit from this easy-to-use ball.
In addition to being easy to use and inexpensive, a stability ball is also an exercise accessory that can grow with you as your regimen becomes more intense. Once you have mastered the basics of the balance ball, you can add free weights, resistance bands, or the Gaiam balance ball chair to elevate your core workouts.
The balance ball chair is a great accessory for the office, allowing you to keep your goals and healthy lifestyle at the front of your mind even if you're not able to make it to the gym.
Bring out the best in your body with the great collection of exercise balls available from Gaiam. Enjoy working out in your own home or wherever else you want with these versatile balls. Your body will thank you.
