We have a Stability Chair.!!
Ok, so what’s one of them then?
The chair is a small piece of apparatus. Designed to stretch and strengthen muscle groups not easily reached by more traditional techniques and equipment, it consists of a seat and a foot bar where springs are attached. You can sit, lie or stand on the chair or the floor and push the foot bar with their hands or feet.
There is a huge amount of different exercise that can be done on the chair to focus on core and leg strength, shoulder girdle stability, mobility and strength and functional movements such as standing, climbing, pushing and lifting.
The chair is considered to be the most challenging piece of Pilates equipment in terms of building strength in the legs and shoulders. Exercises on the chair are great for athletes.
In terms of an exercise, the chair is more athletic than a Reformer. Whereas the latter deals more with flexibility and coordination, the chair is more physically challenging and will get you sweating.
