NO TIME TO EXERCISE? We have the solution for you! Instructor Kimberly Spreen has developed 5 distinctive, ultra-effective Fitness Ball workouts, each one specially designed to tighten and tone your body. And the real secret of the ball is that it works your midsection without you even knowing it. Just by maintaining balance on the ball, you constantly activate your core muscles—so all the workouts will help give you leaner, flatter abs. Voted Top Workout of 2006 by Natural Health Magazine, this DVD allows you to split these 10 minute sections into 5 separate workouts, or mix and match to hit your own unique problem areas … or do all of them together! BUTT & THIGH TONE-UP: You’ll get incredible results from this segment – the ball allows you to really target specific muscle groups so you can tone, tighten and shape your entire lower body. ARMS & SHOULDER SCULPTOR: This segment incorporates light hand weights and utilizes the fitness ball to help you achieve sexy, sleek, and toned shoulders and arms. FIRM, FLAT ABS: The fitness ball gets you up off the floor and helps you to isolate the deepest muscles of your entire abdominal area so you’ll get better results, faster. TOTAL BODY FAT BURNER: This surprisingly fun and unique segment is a whole different take on the fitness ball – you’ll bounce, toss and roll the ball while you burn fat and calories! ULTRA STRETCH: You can achieve the deepest, most satisfying and effective stretches by using the fitness ball. You’ll want to do this segment again and again.

By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 31, 2006
Format: DVD
Fitness Ball Workouts is a sequence of five short fitness routines, each of which use a stability ball. Because this DVD is part of the 10 Minute Solution series, each workout is only 10 minutes long, and the fully programmable feature allows you to mix and match up to six segments to create your own, completely customized routine--very nice! None of the segments have formal warm-ups or cool-downs, but most do prepare you with a few moves in the beginning and then add some quick stretches at the end. I've provided a brief overview for each of the five routines below:

1. Lower Body. Although this segment uses no weights, it was probably the most challenging of the five. Kimberly begins with simple squats and side-to-side lunges, but she eventually adds in bouncing the ball and raising it overhead; combined with the high number of repetitions, you'll be really working here. Next comes some glute work while lying face down on the ball, and finally, there is a tough hamstring portion performed lying with your feet on the ball.

2. Upper Body. This segment was probably the most disappointing, especially given that Kimberly uses such light weights (I believe she is using 3#). She begins by warming up the upper body with push-ups (an easier version with hands on the ball) and then moves into an upper body circuit. The circuit includes rows, tricep kickbacks, bicep curls, shoulder presses, side raises, and front raises; it is repeated three times, each time adding a few new moves such as flyes/rear flyes. Kimberly moves quickly, which makes it difficult to vary your weights as needed (I tried to switch between 5# and 8#).

3. Core. Kimberly does warm you up here with some spinal rolls and core twists holding the ball.

I have never used any of the 10 minute Solution videos before and purchased several at once. I have especially enjoyed this one. The 10 minute segments are great and you can pick and choose as many as you want to do at a time. The instructor is not annoying to listen to as in so many exercise videos. Her comments are minimal and funny. This DVD has been a nice switch for me since I usually do my fitness ball workouts from memory and not with a DVD to keep me paced.

Love it, love it, love it!

Following their other dvds, this also is five different 10 minute workouts. You can't say that you don't have even 10 minutes to spare. It's funny; you just go and do one workout, and before you know it, you have probably made it through a second or third. That's one of the things I really like about the 10 Minute Solution series.

In the different workouts there is lower body and upper body, cardio, core and one for increasing flexibility. The routines are all creative and interesting. You aren't just doing the usual crunches but different exercises to keep this fresh. The instructor Kimberly, is motivating and she makes it fun. I like the cardio section the best. She makes it easy to follow because she is another good cuer. You always know what's next so it's easy to keep up with. I really like this and while it's not the most challenging, it's enjoyable and mixes up my routine to keep me from getting bored.

I have a hard time sticking with an exercise program, I was using the 10 minute solutions pilates, but it seemed like an awful lot of work, I'm not in the best shape, so getting through an hour of that is a serious workout. So I got this, and it is definitely still a workout, but because you use the ball, it is gentler, and I find the ab workout to actually target my abs instead of hurting my lower back. She seems to work more at my level, which I like because then I'm not always falling behind.

I love this tape because you can do seperate segments that are only 10 minutes each. You can hit your abs while waiting for pasta water to boil or get a good stretch b4 bed. You can break it up and use it with other workouts to boost your metabolism. I love it

This video does everything it advertises. I use it for 10-20 minutes a day, 5 days a week and I'm getting results in just over a month. The ab routine is exceptional. The lower body and cardio workouts both get your heart pumping a bit (especially if you use big movements). The stretch section is thorough. I could really feel my arm muscles burn in the upper body portion with the right size weights for me.

I tried the 'as seen on tv' core stability ball workout and it was great, too, but I was never able to customize it to my needs and time constraints. Also, they would send a new video to me every other month, whether it would fit for me or not -- and if it did not fit for me, they would give me the option of sending it back -- on MY dime. This program never gets boring and I can certainly find 10-20 minutes in my day to do this workout on the weekdays, and I walk with my daughter on the weekends. When I do finally feel like it is too much of a routine, I'm going to try the 10 Minute Yoga Solution to mix and match with this one just to bring something different into the mix. It is definitely straight forward and efficient. Do remember, however, even if you only work out for 10 minutes, there is no cool down at the end of each section. Do some slow pacing around and slow, deep breathing stretches afterward for 5 minutes or so to get your heart rate back to an acceptable level.

A final thought...., if you don't care about anything else I've said, do know that out of the 22 exercise videos I've purchased (cardio, dance, Latin, bellydance, yoga, taichi, qigong -- I like trying new things), this is the fastest working fitness solution I have ever used!
