Personal Training Session: How to Buy a Stability Ball

Taylor Ryan, head trainer for The Art of Weight Lifting and the Charleston, South Carolina-based Fat Blasting Boot Camps for Moms is The Stir's personal trainer, here each week to help us get in shape. And that includes buying exercise equipment that fits our bodies and produces results.

This week ... how to choose the right stability ball.


Taylor loves stability balls for total body training: Lean back over the ball while you're doing chest presses, squat on the ball with knees facing forward for bicep curls ... the possibilities are endless. They're also great for core workouts. Keep one behind your chair at home for the days you just can't get to the gym.

But squishy, firm, big, small, which one is right for your body type and weight? By now you've watched the video and found out. If not ... what are you waiting for? Click!

Taylor will be back next week with a new move, but meantime ...
