TRAINING GUIDE

TONING BALL

My name is Frida Hallqvist. I’m a former ballet dancer and founder of BODY by FRIDA: a healthy universe with online training, bootcamps, tasty nutritious recipes, and lifestyle and training advice.
I want to inspire you to live a healthier, stronger lifestyle and provide you with the newest workout trends. 

Based on my professional ballet background and experience I have created a workout program using the toning ball that you can easily do full body workouts at home or while traveling.

 

WHY SHOULD I USE A TONING BALL?

Such a small piece of equipment can actually create huge results. The ball will help your body to get stronger, leaner and more toned. But it will also improve your balance and mobility. The ball will make your muscles work harder by using small pulse movements and squeezes on the ball.

This guide provides the overview of exercises you can do using the Toning Ball to give you the results you’re after. It will show you how to complete some effective exercises for your entire body and how to actually use the toning ball for full body workouts.

The equipment needed is very basic, and it’s easy to train at home or while traveling. You can see the direct link to the toning ball and yoga mat below but really all our yoga mats works perfectly.

The exercises and programs have been designed to inspire and help you boost your training. They will guide the beginner to get started using a toning ball and the more advanced user to take their training to the next level. It will help to give you a more functional body, improve strength and therefore help you look and feel good.The exercises are divided in two blocks: 1.
