How do I inflate my Halo stability ball?
If you ordered either the 65 cm anti-burst stability ball or the Halo Trainer Pro Kit, you will need to inflate the stability ball before use.
1. Remove stability ball from the box and check for any damage. It is normal for inflatable balls to have mild creases or fold marks when first inflated.
2. Allow the stability ball to reach room temperature before inflating.
3. Attach pump inflator tip to end of pump hose. Place the other end of the pump hose into the blue port at the base of the pump. Insert the inflator tip into hole in stability ball. Inflate ball to the desired height and firmness. DO NOT OVERINFLATE. As a guide, the Halo Trainer should fit snuggly around the upper third of the stability ball when inflated properly.
4. Remove inflator tip from ball and immediately replace with the white plug so that it is flush with the ball when fully inserted.
5. After inflation, it may take a few days for the ball to expand as the fold marks work their way out.

What is core training and how can it help?
Although it may surprise you, the fitness industry is still fairly new and constantly evolving. One of the things that has improved recently is the concept of inter-segmental dependency. Basically this means that during movement we depend on each link along a chain to work in concert, to produce safe and efficient motion. The old way of strengthening was to isolate muscles during resistance training such as crunches.
The current research is challenging those misconceptions and pointing to core strengthening vs. abdominal strengthening. Our bodies must create a stable foundation in our spine in order for the arms and legs to lift, reach, bend, twist, etc. Core training is the art of strengthening the spinal muscles so that we not only protect the spine but also create more coordinated and faster arm and leg motion for activities like running or golf. Core training will help you keep a healthy back and make you a better athlete.
When will a fitness center near me have the Halo available to use?
