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

"When I first signed up, I told myself that I'd just train for 6 months at most as a way to kick start my exercise routine. In April I will be celebrating my THREE YEAR anniversary training with Kate and team!! They are absolutely the personal best trainers in East London, and are also just really lovely people. I love training each week with Kate, she works me hard but always whilst having a great chat (well, only when I can breath properly. You can't chat whilst doing burpees!). I couldn't recommend them enough!" Fran
