Swiss Ball Training

Swiss Ball Training

Hands up if you’d like to train using a big bouncy ball? Hell yeah. Seriously though, the Swiss ball is super-effective – whether you’re doing wall squats, ab crunches, hamstring curls or simply sitting on it.

What is a Swiss ball?

It’s a large inflatable ball that comes in different sizes (between 35 and 85 centimetres in diameter). It’s sometimes called a gym ball, a stability ball or a balance ball.

Why do your personal trainers use it at KBPT?

The Swiss ball is a really versatile piece of personal training equipment that adds a little something to our clients’ sessions. We use it because:

  • It’s great for upper body, lower body and core training
  • It improves your balance – just sitting on a Swiss ball engages your key stabilisers and your abdominal and back muscles
  • The Swiss ball can be used at home, outside or in the KBPT studio
  • It’s brilliant for active sitting as it’s unstable and your body has to constantly correct itself (it’s all about the core)
  • It helps you to improve muscle tone, strength and endurance in all the major muscle groups
  • It’s useful for injury rehabilitation and can also be used during pregnancy
  • The Swiss ball lets you increase calorie burn during and after your workout 
  • It gets you more flexible and offers some lovely alternatives to traditional static stretching

"I've been training with KBPT for about six months now, and can honestly say it's been one of the best decisions I've made when it comes to my fitness. I was already exercising regularly, but had just become very bored and demotivated by what I was doing. I came to KBPT for help with taking my fitness to the next level, and just to do something different. Kate has been great from the beginning - she's so enthusiastic and supportive and really listens to what you want to get out of it. She helps to make the training fun, as well as motivating you to put in 100%. It's been great for my fitness to do different things every week, and I've never felt fitter. Would highly recommend!"
