Fitballs have taken the fitness and corporate industry by storm. Their popularity stems from their versatility. The Healthwise fitball promotes active stabilisation. This means it is difficult to slouch whilst sitting on the ball. The abdominal and lower back muscles must work to keep you balanced on the ball.

See the diagram below, to show you the difference it will have on your lower back and posture!
