Pilates Prop Review: The Triadball and Triadball Manual

Triadball from ZenirgyBy Nicole Rogers

Many studios use small balls for myriad reasons. So when I first saw a coworker using the TRIADBALL™ , I thought, “Oh, what a nice sturdy ball!” I had no idea how much I would come to love this little purple ball specifically. And now, its creators—Michael Fritzke and Ton Voogt, Pilates teachers who were trainers for Romana Kryzanowska for over a decade—have released a new 180-page Triadball Manual to help trainers incorporate it into their sessions.

While I had used the ball at work, I just recently received the new manual, which is precise, simple and thorough. There are over 250 exercises with variations, detailed with instructions and black-and-white photos. Though all kinds of fitness professionals use the Triadball, it was created with Pilates in mind, and knowledge of Pilates is necessary to fully understand how to instruct using this manual cover to cover. For a Pilates instructor, the manual is extremely clear...
