The Halo, used alone or with a Stability Ball, is becoming a standard tool in strength and fitness training programs. Explore how an internally weighted version of the Halo Trainer adds another dimension in the creation of unique interval‑style workouts. Designed by the Merrithew™ programming team, discover how to identify efficient form, moving from complete stability to unidirectional instability to multidirectional instability with the Halo in a variety of configurations. Next, practice the suggested exercises in each interval, learning to progress or regress the exercises based on the client’s fitness level. Ideas are shared on how to incorporate both timed and repetition-based intervals with active recovery between sets in a full workout. The addition of the Resistance Loop will provide increased intensity and variety to the intervals.
