First impression out of the box is that this was quite heavy and well made. SKLZ has created quite an impressive product here. The handles screw on solidly, and the center board is one solid piece. The ball, once inflated, is also very solid. The one downside here was the inflating pump. I could have have received a dud, but the pump itself wasn't well suited to inflating the ball. I simply used a bike pump and was up and running in no time. So strike half a point for the pump.
Functionally it works great. The need to balance through the movement creates a unique experience that I have only ever found in the TRX system. It is very taxing on the shoulders, core, and wrists. This has the effect of training up the weak links that hold most of us back. I find this type of training to be very beneficial when worked in with more standard training methods.
My biggest complaint, or maybe more of a wish list for future iterations of this tool, would be to allow for variations in grip width. While the wider hand grips fit me just fine, I believe this May not be ideal/comfortable for shorter individuals. Otherwise this tool is reasonably portable and only requires the space needed to perform push-ups. While I still feel the TRX suspension trainer offers more flexibility in training your entire body, it does pose more difficulty where setup is concerned.
Overall 4 stars because you may need your own pump to properly inflate the ball, and because smaller users may find the hand spacing uncomfortable.
I just completed a 45 minute workout using my new SKLZ product for the first time & I can honestly say it was worth every bit of the $37.98. The fact that I have to balance myself, while doing the pushups is definitely more challenging than just using plain pushup bars. I am already doing incline pushups, with my feet elevated, using the SKLZ push-up board.
If you are already performing pushups, as part of your daily exercise routine, you should definitely consider this product.
Happy New Year!
For whatever reason, we didn't get our pump and needle. Was it a huge deal? No, because we have bikes at home. We just grabbed one we already had and the assembly was complete!
Him being the "tough guy" that he is, decided to inflate the ball completely and was surprised at how difficult it was to do a simple push up! He kept at it though and the next morning (even though he could hardly move) he was ready to get back at it.
The main places he said he feels his muscles working are forearms, shoulders, back and abs. Of course there are the usual biceps, triceps, and chest working as well, but those are the key muscles he's noticed he's using more due to stabilizing himself.
Something neat that SKLZ did, was put suggested workout pictures right there on the trainer. There isn't any, "What was that workout again? Let me go dig that instruction booklet out of the couch cushion." All he has to do is look down and it's right there!
The only complaint my husband has, is that one of the suggested workouts involves rolling the board side to side across the ball. It would be an awesome workout, if we could get the stupid thing to roll! We figured he wouldn't have much luck on the carpet, but the bathroom laminate, kitchen tile, and even the cement in the garage didn't cut it! Perhaps we should invest in a portable steel plate...
Thanks for your review. We've had several other customers reach out to us with the same problem that you're seeing. Have you checked the top of the hand pump? The needle is actually stuck in the top of the pump and held down by a small sticker. If you've checked there and are still unable to locate a needle, please give me a call at the number below and I'll send you a brand new pump and needle out.
Thanks and sorry for any inconvenience.
