5.0 out of 5 stars love the colors, August 18, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Altus Athletic Altus 65 Cm Earth Ball with DVD (Sports)
First, the colors of this ball are very pretty--blue and green are my favorites, so it was prefect for me.

The sand in it makes it good for holding it in one place so that it doesn't roll all around. I use it in my living room so that I have better posture when sitting and watching TV. I leave it out all the time and hop on when I need to straighten up.

The foot pump is fine, but I found it faster and easier to use my hands to pump it up. Plus, it was a good workout for my arms. It warns you not to over inflate it, but make sure to inflate it enough...I didn't and promptly rolled right off the back of it when trying to sit--I landed flat on my back with my legs draped over the ball. It was actually pretty funny and I laughed myself silly.

I have not checked out the DVD, but didn't get the ball for the DVD.

Great ball. I use it everyday and put my full body weight on it and have had no problems with it. I'm actually thinking about getting another to use at work to force myself to sit up straighter all day.

I am looking for a ball to use exactly like you do - as a chair to make me sit up straighter. I am 5'8", about 155lbs. If you don't mind sharing, what is your approximate height and weight so I can better determine if the 65mm is the best size for me?
Thanks a ton!

I am 5'3" and was up to 210 lbs while pregnant and using the ball. I have a long torso and short legs, so my height might be a little misleading. My husband is 5'7" and around 155 and it was comfortable for him.
