Over 50 More Exercise Demos, Including Medicine Ball and Foam Roller Ideas

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, October 21, 2009



Hi everyone!

We wanted to let you know that we've added more than 50 new demos to our expansive exercise library! Most of these feature a classic medicine ball and the newly popular foam roller. For those of you who don't know how to use these pieces of equipment, these demos will give you plenty of ideas for home or the gym!

We hope you like what you see—including more demos of our new male "model," Tim, a long-time SparkPeople employee!

To easily browse through all of the medicine ball exercises, click here for a list. To see all foam roller exercises, click here. You can also conduct a search on the site for "medicine ball exercise" for example to find all exercises for that particular piece of equipment.

We've also added a few new fitness videos to the site, three of which go into more detail about using a foam roller and two about using yoga props. Go to the fitness video section and see "what's new" at the top to view these videos.

Coming soon, our experts are going to create full workouts using these new exercise demos. We hope you enjoy these new workout resources!

    Thank-you so much, as a health professional I can see that the exercises are scientifically based and up to date. Maybe some one can do an article on Mckenzie extension exercises for people with back pain - if you want me to I will be glad to contribute. This website has been so helpful to me!

  The videos are great. I love Coach Nicole. She explains everything so well. I also love how she constantly stresses to take it at your own pace. I bought a stability ball about a week ago and I am so sore from using all sorts of different workouts - thanks SP! emoticon

    Thanks for taking the time to add these exercises. I purchased the air balance board from SP, which was given to me as a gift from one of my team leaders. I love using it for so many different exercises. Right after I received it, you posted exercises /w/ it. How great was this for me & fortunate. Since then I purchased "Balance Pods" from Amazon. I am having a good time /w/ these. I found some exercises /w/pods from Self magazine videos.

    Thank you so much for the foam roller exercises! I'd seen people do those before, but I had no idea why. I've been sore on the underside of my legs from doing high kicks and a lot of jumps during my dance performance on Saturday. I saw one of Coach Nicole's demos on the side of the page Monday and after work I went out and bought a foam roller. It's heaven! I'm still sore, but at least I can do something about it now and roll all of those knots out of me.

Thank you so much!
