J Rob "J Robinson" This is a great workout kit especially if you have back problems. The ball allows you to do a number of the pilate "type" moves with much more comfort for your back while strengthening your core which is imperative when you have back problems. I have seen dramatic results in my mid section! After 3 children I was getting discouraged that my stomach was doomed. Not so!



Determine the size of the ball needed by looking at the height ranges for each size. They offer Small, Medium & Large. Be sure to inflate the ball correctly as some have underinflated (including myself) and thought they bought the wrong size. The maximum diameter is on the GAIAM sticker on the ball. Getting it inflated correctly for your height is important. I measured on a wall, from the floor up, 55cm (my balls maximum) and made a mark on the wall. I then inflated the ball to about that height. I checked the height by putting the ball up against the wall and, using a ruler on top the ball, making sure that it is level, I checked to see if the ruler was close to the mark. I did not personally need to inflate it all the way as I am not at the top of the height range and found a slightly smaller diameter good for me.



This is a great buy and I highly recommend this kit which also comes with the stretchy band.

td9295 The smaller balance balls don't seem to work for me. The 30" balance ball and resistance band helps in all areas of what you want to get in shape. I like Tanya's Total Body Challenge: Balance Ball Workout that uses the ball and the band. It comes with the kit. They say it is three 20 minute workouts for the lower body, upper body and abs. But it takes about 68-75 minutes altogether if you include the warmups. All the workouts have great back-strengthening exercises included. The other DVD is for toning & strengthening which I don't use as much.

Lain I just got this one, as I am only 5 ft and this was the size recommended for my height. I had a great workout going through the first DVD and am amazed out how much of a workout I got. This kit truly is a complete gym and you can workout your entire body on it. It is definitely a keeper, easy to inflate, and the video is really easy to follow along with as she demonstrates the exercises very well. I can't wait to check out the bonus dvd that came with it. I normally workout on the treadmill and elliptical but wanted to add more variety. I am very satisfied with this kit.

Annie I like using my balance ball and the DVD's that came with it to exercise. I like that there are various levels of activities. It was a good purchase.

B.Reader "momathome" I first ordered the gaiam ball in medium...too small. According to my height that should have been perfect. I ordered the large next...STILL too small! There's really not a whole lot of difference between the medium and the large. It seems every dvd uses some jumbo size gray balls that I can't find anywhere. If you're looking for a ball like that...this isn't it! The gaiam sets do come with dvd and are in good condition and do blow up nicely if you don't pass out from arm pain first.

4beauty The ball was made for my heigh range, however I think there should be more variation in ball sizes because the tallest height suggested for the ball may seem they need something in between this small ball and the medium ball. Small-Medium would be a great size to have, other than that its a great price and lots of fun. The lady on the DVD is great, especially for beginners she adds comments on how you can adjust your activity.

briggzy Love this work out. The ball is great for crunches among other excerises and the resistance band is awesome for toning. You can't go wrong!

Sophsmom Why is the 75 cm ball (which is for people over 6 feet tall) $5.00 less than the 65 cm ball (which is for people 5'6"-5'11")? Both come with the pump, resistance band and 2 dvds. Another classic example of charging more for the women's version than for the men's version. Here's a lightbulb for your marketer's heads: Women are sick of being overcharged just because they're women - we're smart enough to shop around and compare prices. Thanks anyway. I'll buy elsewhere.
