It is great for workout and I would highly recommend it to anyone!
Whiteboy
It has a great texture (like a basketball), making it easy to hold onto (even with sweaty hands.)

This is a good medicine ball and a great alternative to the similar but higher priced brands.

Color Name: 8 Lbs. Verified Purchase
I'm very happy with this medicine ball. It seems well made, and its deeply textured surface and medium/small size (8.5" in diameter) make it very easy to handle. When I bought this Valeo 8-pound ball, I also ordered a TKO 12-pound ball, which has some distinct differences. The TKO turned out to be much larger: at 11" in diameter, it's even bigger than a basketball, and the texturing on the TKO is not as deep.

All in all, I'm glad I ended up with the combination of one smaller, lighter medicine ball and one bulkier, heavier medicine ball. The larger size of the TKO makes it harder to handle - which is a good thing, because it makes it more of a workout to manipulate it. For exercises like the squat press or medicine-ball curl, I prefer the larger size of the TKO ball, while for exercises more focused on range-of-motion, the smaller Valeo ball is a great tool. If you're considering a pair of these, this might be an option to explore. They both seem equally well made, despite their differences.

But if you're just looking for a mid-weight, easy-to-handle ball, definitely get yourself the Valeo.

Color Name: 10 Lbs. Verified Purchase
This is my first medicine ball purchase. Thanks to the other positive reviewers, I decided to purchase it. I am picky when it comes to adding exercise equipment to my collection since a lot of exercise equipment out there is either poorly made or ends up not being used thus taking up space in the home. Because of this I seek quality and simplicity in my exercise equipment yet having the versatility for various exercises. I found this medicine ball to be a good fit. In the past, I have used different medicine balls in the gym occasionally as a supplement to my workout. However, these days I am training to become quicker by doing more explosive exercises. A few resources out there recommended a medicine ball for this kind of training so I bought it.

Surface Material:
The grip is superb due to its sticky rubber construction but I will need to see how quickly the surface fades over time. At less than $30, I think this is worth the cost if it lasts me at least 5 years. The textured surface and grooves also increases the grip and I did notice some soreness on my skin and finger tips after using it as one reviewer mentioned. As soon as you take it out of the box, you will notice that the ball has a strong rubber smell and after you use the ball you will notice a somewhat sticky/slick feeling on your hands which can be washed away with soap. If you plan to bounce it off a wall, make sure the wall surface is hard such as brick material and not drywall material. Also, the ball may leave scuff marks on certain surfaces. I like the black and blue color and it looks just like the picture featured on Amazon.

I made the mistake of buying a "soft" medicine ball before I startred P90X2 and realized immediately that I needed a solid one. This ball is perfect for the workouts by P90X2. You'll need to do pushups on it so you'll need something rigid - this ball is perfect.

After tiring of nearly breaking my wrists using basketballs, I purchased a pair of the 8 lb. balls for my first round of P90X2. I'm extremely satisfied with the product. I'm 6'3" and was around 230 lbs. at the time; the balls worked perfectly and supported me without issue. While they lost a barely-noticeable amount of air by the time I completed the round, they are inflatable and a needle is included.

As for the smell...they're made of rubber, so I'm not sure what people expect. Besides, I can't imagine I'm the only one that doesn't smell like roses when I'm working out!

I'd recommend these medicine balls to anyone doing P90X2.

UPDATE: Recently purchased a pair of the 12 lb. balls for another round of P90X2 (now I'm all set up for 4-med-ball pushups). They are equally as good for the workouts as the 8-pounders. (Note that they are slightly larger than the 8 lb. balls, as one would expect.)

Color Name: 12 Lbs.
I've never purchased or used a medicine ball before, but in my winding and inconsistent quest to get in shape, I bought this. It operates as its own workout at this weight without being too big or bulky. It has good elasticity too, in case you're bouncing it off of something (hopefully something sturdy, due to its mass). The paint peels very easily, which is more of a nuisance than anything else. There's at least one extra layer of paint beneath it, but finding the little yellow pieces all over the place isn't all that great. It's a good product on the whole, though.

Color Name: 6 Lbs. Verified Purchase
Great product, almost identical to the ones I have used at various gyms. I wasn't sure of the size when I ordered. This is a little smaller then ones I have used at commercial gyms.

However, it is great, well made and very easy to grip and handle during a variety of exercises using this weighted ball. It is especially useful doing situps/crunches whether on a bench, the floor or even using one of the large exercise balls to sit on and do the situps, twists and so on. You have a wide range of activities to use this for.

They also provide a poster that shows you various exercises you can do with this ball as well as incorporate into other exercises you do and may not have thought about using a medicine ball.

I recommend it and they have smaller/lighter weight and larger ones as well.
