If you don’t already have a Pilates Ball, it’s important to mention a few notes. First, a Pilates Ball is known by many names – Stability Ball, Swiss Ball, Exercise Ball, and more. There are “anti-burst” balls which tend to cost a little more, but they are made of a special material that will prevent the ball from “bursting”, but instead would deflate slowly if punctured. If you desire environmental balance in your fitness products, there are some balls that are phthalate-free. RollingSands Harmony carries a variety of Stability Balls to try and meet everyone’s needs. Please note that it is also important to buy the correct size. When you visit our pages for the various Pilates Balls, you’ll see the sizing instructions on each page so don’t worry – there’s no guessing involved.
