    Contrary to what was posted in the article, you do not FULLY inflate the ball. You leave a little air out so it slightly flattens out when you are sitting/laying on it. These balls are great for core, ab and chest work!
  • I have 2 neither one is in use right now :(. I used to like them but I got out of practice and I think there should be MORE resources for them on SP.
  • I do enjoy using the exercise ball, and hyave heard about the sizing, but nobody addresses what to do when a person is shorter than the "normal". I am not quite 5' tall...
  • I've seen one of colleagues sitting on the ball. I hope it's not against our company safety rule!
  • Yes - I too love the Swiss Ball and use DVD's as instruction. It is challenging but not beyond anyone's capabilities and well worth the effort. Also it is fun. So don't forget to enjoy it.

    Folks, don't be afraid of the fit ball but do take a class at a local rec center or fitness center where it is used. I teach some senior fit classes and we use the fit balls in each class successfully. I sometimes start people seated on balls with a chair on either side for support.
  • i JUST LOVE EXCERCISING WITH THE BALL. I´VE LEARNED FROM SPARKPEOPLE PAGE THE HUGE VARIETY OF EXCERCISES, THAT YOU WILL NEVER BE BOARED.
  • I just bought a ball today, and can't wait to get started!
  • Very cool. I had no idea you could do so many exercises with the ball!
  • I have been wanting to get a balance ball, but, how do you know what size to get? there are several different sizes. thank you for your time.

    I'm going to check with my physical therapist to see if I can do these exercises. Core strength is very important after back surgery.
  • I just got one the other night. Im trying to relax with it but im still terrified its going to pop or im going to crack my head off the floor. Its a great workout though for the few exercises I've done with it.

    I am a beginner and can do this.
  • does anyone know how to fix the ball so that it stays inflated---there is no hole; just slow leak around stem.
  • I find the work-out guidelines for using the ball good, but not once have I seen anything about work-outs on the mini-trampoline. So, what is the point of having this team?
