Trainers Reveal Favorite Fitness Equipment and Reap Savings

June 01, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle News
Carpinteria, CA – June 1, 2006 – For the last several months, has been conducting online polls of fitness professionals as to their fitness equipment preferences. The latest in the series of biweekly surveys asked the following question: “What is your favorite tool to increase the functional aspect of training?” Although a holistic approach to fitness training is generally best, it is necessary to utilize functional or sport-specific training when focusing on the development of those attributes most needed by athletes in their respective fields. Nearly half (43%) of those fitness professionals sampled were inclined to utilize stability balls in their functional training – perhaps because there is almost no other training tool (besides free weights) that can be used for such a variety of functions. Most of the other trainers surveyed split their votes between medicine balls (29%) and rubber tubing (23%), with the remaining 1% opting for various pulley systems.
