Swiss Ball :: Fitness Ball :: Fitball
Swiss balls are vinyl air-filled balls used for fun, safe and effective exercise, improving strength, flexibility and balance.
Fitness balls were originally used for physical therapy to treat orthopedic and neurological disorders, but now these balls are quickly rolling their way into the world of the general public as an adaptable piece of exercise equipment.
Using Fitness Balls, the bad posture, poor body mechanics and inflexibility (which cause back pain) can be replaced with proper conditioning and balancing of trunk musculature.
Maintaining perfect posture with a ball is fun and effective.
The medicine ball is a great tool for a complete body workout, especially if it is combined with a Swiss ball.
The weight of a medicine ball can vary between 2 and 10 pounds.
It can be used to strengthen shoulders, back, arms and legs as well as improving core trunk strength and joint integrity. It also makes an exceptional abdominal exercise tool to create powerful and rock hard abs.
Unlike weight machines that are bolted to the floor and give a limited unnatural movement, medicine ball workouts provide weight-resistance through a full range of motion.
The medicine ball is a unique tool to learn and train sports specific and explosive motion exercises, therefore the medicine ball is used by many professional athletes, boxers, golf and tennis players and sports associations including the NBA.
Foam Roller :: Half Foam Roller
Used for a variety of applications such as rehab, sports training and improving balance, foam rollers provide a dynamic training surface no matter what your goals.
Foam rollers are cylindrical in varying lengths.
Half rollers provide the relatively most stable surface while the round roller provides the most dynamic.
Foam rollers are made of high quality, dense foam that allows them to "remember" their shape as well as provide consistent resistance.
