  • I am afraid to use the stability ball due to the possibility of falling off or it popping because of my weight. Are they really strong enough not to pop? - 4/18/2014 1:03:04 PM
  • Thank you! I never wanted to use the ball at my gym because I didn't know which one to use or what to do with it. I'm now checking out the other videos. - 3/26/2014 1:22:36 PM
  • I learned something new everyday.
    Thanks for sharing, it helped me a lot - 3/26/2014 12:28:24 AM
  • I loved using my Swiss ball but it took up too much room (didn't help I lost all my exercises from the WCB when I went there) I used to take a class when I was hurt at work it was the best 30 minutes of the whole week. Of all the things I did there I missed that the most. - 3/12/2014 8:46:34 PM
  • So if my exercise ball is a little big, is it okay if it's a little underinflated? - 1/16/2014 1:34:43 PM
  • Thanks for the information I didn't know the size of the ball mattered , great now I know what size to get. - 1/13/2014 3:15:43 PM

  • Thanks for the reminder that I need to take my new one out of the box. Good know that I got the right size. I am looking forward to trying out the other videos with my ball. - 1/3/2014 1:45:58 AM
  • Most companies make three sizes, so you pick the one for your size

  • Great advise here but I have a question of concern here. Do all companies use the same yard stick for these ballsIt seems the one I purchased at (company #1 was smaller than the one I purchased @ company #2.
    Could it be one might use a different grade of whatever it is they're made of?
    Say you sit on a leather couch and along comes the salesman who explains that the one you sitting on has the top of the line leather,however,y
    he leather you've chosen is slightly lower (say #5 on the list) so therefore will be less comfortable)
    Just wonder if anyone might know the answer.
