Gym Exercise Ball

What is an Exercise Ball?

Available in various sizes, and used in gyms, on exercise-videos and in physical therapy centers, a fitness or exercise ball is a large rubber ball, typically 55cm in diameter, which is used to develop strength, flexibility and balance.

Exercising with an Exercise Ball

Many exercises can be adapted for use with an exercise ball, including specific exercise routines like Pilates and Yoga. As an additional fitness tool to conventional gym machines, like recumbent bikes and elliptical trainers, Swiss fitness therapists have been using the exercise ball (also called a Swiss ball) for decades in rehabilitation and fitness programs, to strengthen the abdomen, lower back and legs. Now, many athletes are using Swiss exercise balls to improve musclar strength and flexibility of the torso.

Fitness Ball Exercises

Exercise can be performed sitting/bouncing on the ball, or lying on the ball, or lying on the floor with your feet on the ball, and in many other ways.

Exercise Ball Price Guide

For a regular 55 centimeter exercise ball: $20.00 to $40.00.

Exercise Ball

Gym Exercise Balls improve health and fitness, build muscle tissue, and develop a leaner body shape. They also help to raise metabolism and may also help to develop a flat stomach. To lose fat tissue, and reduce weight, workouts using Gym Exercise Balls need to be combined with a calorie-controlled diet. Because unless you create a calorie deficit, you can't burn fat and therefore lose weight.
