Lower Body Ball Specialist

I really loved this course and practicing all the moves. I feel much more confident to be able to explain the benefits, muscles used and what areas are being strengthened. I will use this in group fitness classes, personal training sessions and in my own fitness routines.  Mary S. Hoadley, AFPA Certified Professional 

Innovative exercise ball techniques. I am going to utilize the exercises within my training programs for firefighters.  Shannon Daniel Orndorff, ACE Certified Professional

Awareness of proper form and cues to use while training clients on the G Ball, depending on their level and ability. A refresher on specific muscle groups targeted on each exercise is always beneficial. I often incorporate the G Ball in the core segment of my routines. This course introduced me to some new conditioning exercises as well as some great stretches to use. I have gained knowledge on some alignment cues as well. I thought the course was easy to follow and very thorough. I would recommend it to any trainer looking for new safe and effective ways to work on core strength. The G Ball is a great piece of equipment to vary anyone’s stretching and strength routines.  Kasie Sullivan, ACE Certified Professional
