    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?

    I have one and am going to use it more often. Especially since I have seen the demos. I have a little more confidence.

    I have been using my Gym Ball for so many years and found it really VERY helpful in easing aches and pains all over body, as it exercises all the muscles.
    One can do so many different types of movements with this ball with a little practice to balance at the start. I feel like getting a message at my back with this GYM BALL. Any one can use the gym ball at home at her own with peace and convenience.
  • Whenever I get on my ball, I love the stretch. I have fallen off a few times, but if you concentrate on what you are doing it is a great workout.

    I have a 19 cm balance ball and would like some exercises to do with it.
  • I had used my ball instead of a desk chair for the better part of a year now...I love it! I figure any movement rather than just sitting here for hours while I work is better than nothing yes?
