Caball Exercises

Caball (Cable & Ball) Exercises were created from a desire to make exercising integrative, challenging, sensing, and dynamic.  It is easy to become complacent while exercising with the number of repetitions and a familiarity to a routine that develops quickly.  The self discipline is to stay alert, attentive, and fresh with each movement, so injuries are prevented, alignment is monitored, and connectivity from the core outwards is initiated.  From my past as a professional rider and serious ballroom dancer, I learned to move and focus on this inner awareness, but for a lot of people this is an unknown or a challenge of  “how to.”  The Caball exercises create an instant awareness, since they require balance and inner stability with all of the moving parts.

My hope was to develop exercises that created a whole body workout with body, mind, and spirit.  I wanted fitness to take-on an aliveness/fun factor instead of drudgery. The Caball exercises are considered advanced, but they can also be modified by first doing the exercises flat-footed and then moving to a half round.  Also, one should experiment with sitting and kneeling on the balance ball before taking on the Caball Exercises.

Integrative exercises involve lots of moving parts and how they must work together. I really like how they give you a whole body workout, coordination challenge, inner awareness, timing, fitness, flexibility, weight distribution, balance and presence. Making it all fun and functional. The cable allows for dynamic control of the core through the appendages from start to finish. The ball adds extra awareness, core engagement, and balance. All of it is alive!
Caball (cable and ball) exercises developed out of the desire to bring more movement, challenge, and balance to integrative exercises. As a dancer and athlete, I wanted to find a way to get fit and have fun. Caball requires a focus on inner core use and awareness with the added challenges of angles and rotational contact points that aren’t always stable. You are the stability and the rest is in controlled motion–just like dancing.

Integrative exercises require mind and body coordination, since there are multiple dynamics involved. Inner core engagement and control are the cornerstone to balance, stability, rhythm, weight distribution, and flexibility. The exercises are designed to be fun and engaging–the adult jungle gym while getting functionally fit!
