Develop balance and flexibility. Anti-burst, thick-walled construction. Can also be used as a chair to improve posture and further engage the core.
If you think all exercise balls are the same, I'm here to tell you they're not. I have been using an SCP Pro Series Ball (65 CM) for years and have to say it is much better quality than the Fila ball. I have tried lots of exercise ball brands over the last 20 years, and SCP is still my favorite. I was using Gaiam yoga brand, but I like the SCP so much more.
Easy to inflate and holds air for a few weeks before needing a bump.
I expected to get an orange ball, but got blue. And after a month of use I need to blow it, but uncorking it is very inconvenient
Perfect size!!! I am using as a chair! I’m over 160 and this baby holds!
We like using these stability balls when we visit a gym, so it is great to have one at the house. The exercises you can do with this are not strenuous, but they do really aid in flexibility and promote the ability to balance better. For people our age (approaching 70), balance and flexibility are more concerning than strength and endurance. We use a really good rowing machine to get a good, total body workout, and this ball is a good fit with that. The medium is close enough that both my wife and I can use it. I'm an inch or two over and she is an inch or two under, so it works well for both of us. The pump that comes with it isn't super fast, but it does the job, and they give you a bunch of the removable plugs that you use to stop up the fill hole. The material seems thick enough to be plenty tough, and the 300 pound rated weight capacity gives us more than 100 pounds of leeway. We will use this two or three times a week.
This is an excellent item to add to your home exercise equipment I really like this particular stability ball set because it includes a pump ! I'm a procrastinator so having a pump to get started was perfect. The quality seems great. I've used it quite a bit over that last month and it feels solid (no burst issues) The box states it has thick walled construction reducing the possibility of bursting.
This is a typical stability ball sold a major chain stores. It's inexpensive and does an OK job. The ball come completely deflated in a box, and I had to let it air out in the garage for a few days to let the odor dissipate. You use the included cheap air pump to blow the ball up. It takes a bit of finaggling to get it started. In my case I had my husband start pumping while I held the deflated ball, until some air got in it and it could rest upright while you finished inflating it. The plastic (?) is thinner that my other stability ball and it has to be inflated every few weeks if you're an active user. I know this from our gym. My favorite stability ball is the duraball, it's over 12 years old, I bought it from a company called Fitter1 out of Canada. The ball is very thick, holds the air very well, came with a large easy to use air pump which actually pumps alot of air and looks brand new after a ton of use. I use it both as my desk chair and for exercise. I got the FILA for our vacation home and it's good enough for light use but if you're serious get a better ball. You'll pay more but it hey - my other one has lasted 12 years and will probably last another 10 years!
