So I ordered the TKO 65cm. It was cheaper and should help since it was a better size for me. After pumping it up and using it for a week, I've noticed it's started to a little air. I don't think it's really a leak, just daily strenuous use has made it a little deflated. I don't mind pumping a little more air into it each weekend. No big deal.
One thing i cannot seem to get over: THE SMELL. This thing stinks of.. sewer? a paper mill? a dirty diaper? vinegar? It's rancid when it comes out of the box and after a week of use, it's still there. I have to put a towel on it when my face is nearby because otherwise I'll gag.
I measured the ball height placing it against the wall and marking the wall at top of the ball using a ruler/level. Then I measured with a measuring tape....and the ball is exactly 55cm. Note: the instructions actually mention discrepancies in size, but relate them to inadequate inflation or not waiting the 24 hours for expansion. So they may have a known issue about the size discrepancy, but they want to sell all current inventory hoping not many customers read instructions or take the time to verify they received the correct . I have inflated the ball to a point where it is not possible to add any more air....actually too firm, so there is no way the ball is under-inflated.
The ball is a 55cm not 65cm as advertised, but still a good quality ball.
an exercise ball is an AWESOME way to soothe a baby!!! You can either bounce on it while holding your baby, or while your baby is in her carseat you can put the carseat on top of the ball and bouce it (obviously always holding onto the carseat).
Yes, you can rock/bounce a baby yourself but the ball is better because:
1) less fatigue --- even though doing 100 reps of squats holding my baby is good for my legs, it is tiring!
2) more fluid motion --- the ball provides a consitently smoother, more rhythmic bounce/jiggle for the baby then a person could
A tip when filling the ball up:
as per instructions, dont fill it up all the way the first time you fill it. Also do not fill it if the ball feels hot or cold (wait until it is at room temp).
then, after 24 hours, you can inflat the ball all the way. An easy way to tell if it is 55cm yet is to mark 55cm height on a wall or something, and then measure the ball against that.
I found the provided air pump to be quite sufficient and filled the ball in less than 5 minutes.
They provided 2 air plugs. I know some reviews said that plugs were not provided. They were in a small plastic bag stapled to the instructions.
One thing i wish i had known (my fault, i am a dummy when it comes to exercise balls) is that you can determine the correct size for yourself based on your height.
55cm = 4'8" - 5'5"
65cm = 5'6" - 6'0"
75cm = 6'1" - 6'5"
I am about 5'11" and I definitely feel that this ball is too short...it sometimes gets uncomfortable to sit for an extended period of time. I only use the ball to soothe my baby so its not too bad. I guess it kind of works out b/c my wife is much shorter than I am and the ball is a good size for her.
About the 75cm TKO Anti Burst Fitness Ball in particular though I've got to say that I'm really pleased with this exercise ball. Right out of the box, the ball inflates in minutes with the pump that is provided. The ball is made of a very durable material and while sitting on it, I really don't have any doubts about whether it'll hold my weight without bursting. The ball doesn't really pick up lint and dirt off of the floor so I'm not worried about where I sit on the ball. Lastly, I've had the ball for about two months and haven't lost any air yet. As for sizing, I'm 5'10" and this ball is a great height for me while sitting at the desk.
