There is something about being a personal trainer. When I meet people and tell them what I do, I almost instantly get the reply "I should do more exercise", then the next one usually to come out of their mouth is "I just don't have time", "I have a full time job, kids at home, partner....just can't find the time"...
Somewhere along the line a message got put out there that women should train differently to men. That women should lift pink dumbbells, do step classes, chronic cardio and get a glow on. That women are suited more to the treadmill than the barbell...
Swiss balls are fantastic. These workouts are great for both Men and Women.
First of all you want to find a great quality Swiss ball. The ones I would recommend are the dura balls, which world leading Exercise kinesologist Paul Chek developed. The reason these are so fantastic is they are anti burst.
So when it comes to you lifting heavy weights and using your swiss ball, you want to trust that it won't burst on you. If these balls puncture they deflate slowly rather than burst.

I think one of the biggest mistakes people make is believing that in order to lose weight it is all about exercise and calories. Yes weight loss may happen but what damage are you doing on the way? How do I lose weight safely?
It always amazes me how people view exercise. I want to let you know one thing. Exercise is not about how many calories you can burn. If it was you would be fairly disappointed. The amount of calories that you burn slogging it out at the gym compared to sitting at your desk or grocery shopping is not really that big of a difference.
When it comes to losing fat, the key is to think about the diet and not about the calories you burn on that indoor bike or treadmill. There is more to exercise than this. Let me fill you up with knowledge so you understand why we need to exercise and how exercise can change your body.
