I recently purchased a stability / fitness ball for my Austin personal training studio. I love using fitness balls because they are an easy-to-use added feature to create new and challenging exercises for my clients. This is done by its strengthening and improving the balance and posture of the core muscles while performing any number of resistance training exercises. It is also highly effective with physical therapy patients. Actually, an entire workout can be performed on the ball limiting the space and equipment needed for a typical exercise session.
Although I don’t have heavy traffic in my studio, I wanted the strongest, most durable, longest lasting ball I could find. I found that in the Hammer Strength Stability Ball. Its burst resistant quality and thick rubber skin allows for a dependable and safe workout even with my heavier clients. After all, it is able to withstand 2,000 lbs. of weight. There is one caveat; it only comes in the 75cm size which limits its use to people with longer legs. 6’5 Austin basketball trainer Chris Corbett loves it but if you you fall into the shorter leg category look for a ball that is burst resistant and inflate it only as directed. Personally, I prefer the commercial use quality because it has been created to handle heavy workloads. You can pick one upe here:
