SparkPeople has started requiring us to listen to these obnoxious ads--not even the option to skip after 5 seconds like many other thoughtful and courteous sites. I like coach Nicole, but I watch her videos much less now, because of the ads. I find many useful videos without ads on you tube and on other fitness sites.
SparkPeople is slowly grinding this once good site into the ground with all of the obnoxious advertising.
If you use the search engine at the top of the Sparkspeople page you can look up stability ball. Coach Nicole has an intro video tell you what size ball according to height. Normally the stability ball packaging also states what size ball is appropriate for people. Hope that helps.

i would like to know what size ball would be helpful and if this would work with someone having kyphosis at T5/6. Thank you.

Your ads show up, but seems like all of your videos give me a "server is not available" message! Too bad for they look like excellent videos that I would follow!

This was a great beginning exercise video using the ball!
Coach Nicole never seems to age and so is her advice. I just bought a 55 cc ball from Weight Watchers because of having physical therapy. These are just a few of the exercises that can be done. Try not to let this ball gather dust now. It help me to accomplish exercises easier I think.

This was good for me. I'm over 60 and very out of shape, but it felt great!

I was glad to see the reference to vertigo. I tend to have vertigo seasonally. This workout did trigger it slightly. So seeing someone else comment to that was reassuring. I usually allow time for the vertigo to abate before changing motion--or trying to get up. Sudden positional change is definitely OUT when I'm experiencing vertigo!
