Swiss balls offer you a fun, safe and highly effective way to exercise. Long-lasting and inexpensive compared to other exercise equipment. Used as early as the 1960s, originally by physical therapists and chiropractors in Switzerland to assist with rehabilitation. That is how it became known as the Swiss Ball.
Through seminars and classes the Swiss Ball was introduced into the USA in the early 1980’s. But, the Swiss Ball is far more versatile and valuable than simply for rehab use. In the late 1980’s coaches, athletic trainers and personal trainers realised the effectiveness of the Swiss Ball in developing balance and core strength. Since then they are reported as being the most effective method for core conditioning.
