Pilates Prop Review: The Triadball and Triadball Manual
By 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.

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...
