Equipment

Students will need to provide their own exercise mat, fit ball and folder. Please check guidance below regarding sizing for fit balls.

Using your height to size up your ball

When you stand next to an exercise ball, it should be even or slightly above your knee level. The best way to size up your ball is by sitting on it. When you sit on the ball, your knees should be bent at a 90-degree angle and your thighs should be parallel or even with the floor. Find your height and see which ball size you should try first.

Height and recommended ball size

Under 4’8 – 45 cm ball
4’8” to 5’3” – 55 cm ball
5’4” to 5’10” – 65 cm ball
5’10 to 6’4 – 75cm ball
