December 6, 2016

The following exercise ball workout is a part of the My Best Body program by Polar Ambassador Abbie Sterling. This is what she had to say about her 3-week trial run that she’s offering to anyone who’s interested in creating their best body:

“I created these three original gym-based weeks of workouts as a major THANK YOU to all who have supported me, cheered me on and believed in my program and me. I wanted to give you something extra special in return for all of the encouragement you have given me as I put together my 13-week strength-training program, My Best Body.”
