In the 1990s, the focus shifted and trainers began to use the balls to condition athletes. Their use in fitness quickly spread to the general fitness community. Stability balls are great to use because they encourage proper alignment and balance and engage the core in every exercise. They improve muscle stability and endurance and also encourage safe instability by allowing all the muscles used in the exercise to work together. Stability balls encourage primary and secondary muscles to work together. They are good for stretching before and after the workout because they prevent the user from over stretching their muscles while also providing a light cardiovascular workout during the warm up. Use of a stability ball allows you to move out of various muscle positions quickly and offers benefits alone or in combination with additional equipment such as a medicine ball, free weights or other stability blocks such as a yoga block, foam roller or stepper.
