This 9" inflatable, latex-free ball helps build core strength and improves muscle tone. It also enhances your pilates routine and increases flexibility.
Ball is very durable and as described. Would've been 5 stars had they included instructions on how to inflate the ball. The white plastic piece needs to be removed and a pump should be used.
I am a certified Pilates instructor and I recently ordered 12 Valeo balls. I have used Valeo products for years and always been happy with them, but it appears that the quality has changed. One of the balls arrived ruined, as the plug stem had pierced through the ball. THREE of the 12 balls have already developed pin hole sized holes and are no longer useable. These holes happened during absolutely normal class usage. Luckily, none of my students got injured. I know I need to deal with Amazon and try to get them replaced, but I'm so irritated about it that I'm trying to cool off first.
I bought this ball and filled it with air. Within an hour it had deflated. I repeated the process and it still does not retain the air.
When I read the reviews about being confused on how to blow up the ball with the straw, I thought, these people must be stupid. But the truth is, I too was confused at first. LOL The ball comes with the straw pushed into the hole stopper, sticking out. It looks as though you should be able to blow on it and the ball will inflate but that is not the case. The straw must be removed from the stopper and the stopper spike removed form the fill hole, then the straw and be inserted into the filler hole and blown up.
The surface is not smooth and slightly sticky. Great For barre like work out. The ball sticks to the skin with out too much effort. Highly recommend it
I've had this for years now. I've taken it around the world. I've misplaced the straw at times and blown it up without, and never had any problems with it. Even without the straw, it can be blown up without problem and it holds air well.
I seen a review claiming they sent it back because it was made with a material that causes cancer; not sure what they planned to do with it. It'd smaller than I thought it would be, but it serves its pourpose. My dog ended up chewing it, I don't plan on replacing it.
The ball was shipped without the plug to put into the ball once it is inflated. I am not sure that it was a new product. Without a plug, you cannot inflate and use the ball.
Justo lo que esperaba
Se me hizo algo pequeña !!!!!
