We have got balls! To train with of course ... Because we have so many different types of balls, we would like to explain you which ball is perfect for what training purpose. Saves you time to figure that out yourself ;)
Want to add a new dimension to your training in the form of instability? Then the gymball is a good choice. A gymball is sort of like a bouncing ball, but without handles and is used for all kinds of training. You can use it, for example, for push ups, planking exercises and rehabilitation exercises. Many users find it comfortable to lie on their back on the ball (belly button towards the ceiling) for stretching and relaxing the spine.
When you train with the gymball the muscles of your core have to work hard in order to balance the ball. Exercises with the gymball improve your balance, coordination, flexibility and core stability.
The gymball is available in three sizes: 55, 65 and 75 cm. Choose the right size ball for your training by using the table below:
length: height ball:
1.52 to 1.75 55 cm
1.76 to 1.90 65 cm
1.91 - 2.10 75 cm
The peanutball owes its name to the, you probably guessed it .. peanut shape! With the peanut ball you can do most of the stabilization and fitness exercises that you would normally do with a gymball. But the peanutball makes the exercise easier, because the ball can only moves in two directions. As a result, the stabilizing element is not as intense as with a ball which can roll in all directions.
Exercises with the peanutball contribute to increased strength, balance, flexibility and better posture. The big advantage for the physical therapist or trainer is that he/she can easily sit on the ball to keep it still, so that the training can be supported every step of the way.
The peanutball is also a suitable tool for children. To help them improve their posture, the peanut ball can be used as a chair when doing daily activities like homework. Children can safely use the peanutball because it is not unstable enough to form a risk.
