Happy New Year’s from the Gravity Ball™ team! As you enjoy your holidays and get ready to start the new year we wanted to share a couple of easy but powerful actions you can take to make 2019 the best year possible.
2018 has been a big year for Gravity Ball™. We’ve had some amazing opportunities to share the Gravity Ball™ vision with so many of you this year. From exhibiting at expos, through speaking at events, and from our online outlets, we’ve had the opportunity to get the Gravity Ball™ into the hands of those of you who can truly benefit from it the most.
With the colder, shorter days and an array of rich, tempting holiday foods always around, this can make maintaining a regular exercise schedule a bigger challenge during the holidays. Many of us become susceptible to gaining a few extra pounds due to all of the extra calories combined with lower activity levels. Maintaining a regular exercise schedule that includes daily resistance exercise will help to keep any holiday weight gain at a minimum, while also helping us to maintain good blood sugar levels, a very important and at times over looked topic.
An Amazon search for “exercise equipment” brings up over 60,000 search results! That’s a lot to choose from. At Gravity Ball Health Systems, we’re all about making good use of what we have. With this in mind, we made sure the Gravity Ball™ was able to transition from one exercise to the next easily while offering versatile features that can adapt as our needs change over time.
We’re excited to share our new video that demonstrates how to use the Gravity Ball’s strap system and attachment anchors. This video is for anyone who has just received a Gravity Ball™ and are not quite sure how to use it or maybe you’ve had a Gravity Ball™ for a while but use just one of the straps. This may give you some inspiration for using the other types of straps.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released their updated version of the guidelines for physical activity earlier this month. This is the first update since the earlier version of the guidelines published in 2008. The study reported many of the health benefits of regular exercise and released the activity recommendations for children and all adults.
Having bad posture or poor spinal alignment not only can make you appear less confident, but can cause real and lasting health effects.
Did you know that close to 1 in 5 Americans experience a mental illness? It’s true, 43.8 million adults experience mental illness in a given year. A sad fact is that many individuals, especially minorities aren’t receiving adequate services or treatment for their mental illness.
Why a strong core is so important
A strong core is one of the most important components of having a strong body. The core consists of muscles that wrap around and stabilize our spine, lower back and pelvis. Watch this simple explanation of core anatomy for a demonstration of the muscles involved.
