Purchased this ball because it came with a workout DVD called "25cm Pilates Mini Ball Workout" HOWEVER, the woman on the DVD uses a MUCH SMALLER BALL in her workouts. I even tried leaving out air in the ball it comes with and it still is hard to use with the excercises due to it's size. I called the company directlyStamina Products, Inc. They took my name and number, checked into it after I asked if there was antheying they would do. They called back and said they checked the ball and the DVD and I was correct but there was nothing they could do for me and if I was not happy to return it to the store for my money back?!! Kinda defeats the purpose of getting the two together!!! Or selling the two in the same package!!!! They are nice products seperately, but thought I was getting a DVD to use with the ball in the box??!!
Yes, it isn't a high priced item, but this ball isn't designed right, IMHO. The trouble comes when inflating the ball. They give you this short, plastic 'straw' to insert into the opening to blow it up #I used a foot pump with a nozzle that I insert into the straw, but it kept coming out#. The straw doesn't fit tightly and I almost lost it inside the ball, because the hole is bigger and there isn't a 'stop' to keep the straw from going all the way in. When I got enough air in the ball, I pulled out the straw and had to put the plug back in, but the air came out before I could get the plug in. I tried several times, but never could get the ball to be fully inflated. One last thing - they don't even include a quick reference on exercises that you can do with the ball. I think that would be nice touch. This is a case of putting a name brand on cheap design. Gold's Gym should be ashamed of approving this product to represent them.
I used the "Mini" ball while doing physical therapy at home. I put it between my knees and gently squeezed the knees together.
I didn't ever know this mini ball to be around. It is a great tool
to get strength in your legs where there just has not been any due to
Arthritis. I would suggest to anyone that you try this size of ball to build
strength in the upper muscles of your legs. Good Luck!! beebusy
They are way too big for actual pilates balls and are an awkward shape. When they are blown up fully the are not a perfect circle and some of them had deep lines and wrinkles in them which made them look very unsightly. I am returning all of them, I can not use these for my pilates business.
I needed and excercise ball for my workouts. My workout room was already packed so I went searching for a smaller ball. Walmart carried the 25cm (about ten inches) Gold's Gym excercise ball and I dont have to worry about where to store it. Great purchase! Yay me!
Just as described, good size and a Great Price! Brought it to PT and told them the price I paid. Awesome purchase.
A lil disappointed in this ball. Main reason is the silly straw you're sent to blow it up. I can't get this ball blown up to my satisfaction. No matter what you do, just can't get enough air in it. If it can be blown up like a ball should, I would absolutely love this ball. No video came with it as advertised. I said I would not recommend but if these issues were corrected, then yes I would recommend. Hate I lost my receipt; I would return it
This is the second I bought. Product plus Ship to Store is great.
The ball is good, however, the online add stated that an instructional DVD was supposed to come with it. It did not.
I am a post polio person, and have a lot of problems with muscle tension, and aches. I lay on this ball, positioning it under aching muscles, or muscles that are over stretched, etc. and lightly roll back and forth. The results are amazing! The tension is released, and the muscles are no longer tight. i have purchased this product for friends, and family, and they are amazed also!
I bought this for a Christmas present and Walmart sent it without a box. They put the shipping label on one side and the invoice taped to the other side. It looks horrible to even try to wrap this and I can't return it as the box is distroyed when removing the labels that cover both sides are removed.
