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

"Really love training with KBPT. We've been training with KBPT for around 6 months at this point and fully recommend them for injury-aware training. They have also been great at accommodating our travel. We train in a pair when we are both in town and have Skype sessions while travelling which has been really good for our fitness. We are both at different levels of fitness (and motivation) and the KBPT team have been able to accommodate that and keep us both on track. I personally wasn't into PT at the beginning and got dragged along by my partner, KBPT somehow managed to get me to the point of liking personal training. Fully recommend." Natasha
