My posture improved instantly. It was relatively easy to use, and by the end of the first week I was totally and completely in love. I sit at my computer 12 hrs. a day, 7 days a week. This thing makes me use my abs, legs, and back muscles all day long, but in a way I just don't notice. "Active exercise" is the term. I'm secretly hoping that my legs, butt, and abs will slowly but surely become tighter and more toned than ever. (Hey, a girl can dream.) And, as many others say here, I am much less tired at the end of the day. This ball is a great product. Buy Gaiam! Everything I've gotten from them has been the top of the line.
Bonus benefit: Weight loss. It's now 10 days, and I've lost a tiny bit of weight every day while on the ball. Makes sense--my back/thighs/abs are getting a real workout. At first, I was tired after a couple hrs. on it. Now I use it all day before I'm tired. Am confident that as I shape up, the tiredness will disappear. And the disappearing weight is FANTASTIC. I feel so light on my feet!
For reference (which I think is very important when taking all reviews into account, as far as this ball goes), I am:
33" inseam (crazy that this impacts the "fit," but it does)
I use this ball as a desk chair
I am lowering the system one star, only because it would be nice to be able to choose the color one wants, rather than color by size.Read more ›
The DVD is also a wonderful tool to have. The main workout dvd focuses on legs, arms and abs. WHOA does it target your muscles! I was amazed at the amount of muscle isolation and how this seemingly "easy" set of moves really targeted my muscles. It was a great workout- wonderfully shot, nicely explained and just fun to do. I can't wait to add it to my exercise regimen.
BALANCE BALL ITSELF:
PROS- sturdy, thick material, does not feel like it will pop. Retains air well. I've used it for several months now and feel comfortable exercising on it and have not had to refill its air level once.
CONS- As others have mentioned it's a LITTLE bit small to size. I still think it's the right size for me, but just barely. My knees are just level with my hips if I'm sitting on it barefoot and I'm 5'7". If you're questioning I would go a size up.
PROS- Good introduction to how to workout using the balance ball. 3 20 minute sections for upper body, lower body and abs. The ab workout was moderately difficult while the lower and upper body were fairly easy but still worthwhile. DVD also has "express" options with 10 minute segments of each. Instructor is fairly "normal"... not annoying, overly demanding or overly peppy/cute.
CONS- Biggest issue is that the instructor fails to switch her left/right directions when instructing. She says what she's doing instead of switching her cues to make it easier for us to follow. For example, she'll say to turn to the left and then she will turn to her left. But if we want to mirror what she's doing we have to actually turn to our right. You can still follow along fairly easily but it's annoying and takes some getting used to as you have to mentally switch each of her directional cues. Also, the two people who she's working out with don't always have the best form and sometimes they're off of her beat or miss a move.Read more ›
