I bought this gym ball after I started going to Pregnancy yoga classes, and my instructor recommended a "birthing" ball to help with posture, backache and general aches and pains experienced in pregnancy. I felt a bit stupid when I asked what a birthing ball was and she said it was basically a gym ball used in pregnancy! I opted for the cheapest I could find as I wasn't sure how much use I would get out of it. This Argos value one cost me £4.98, and I've had plenty of use out of it already. The ball is 55cm in diameter, which is the smallest sized ball you can get. They vary in size, with 55cm being the smallest, and the largest I've seen is ... Read the complete review

==Argos Value Gym Ball== I have rather vivid memories of me in the delivery suite at my local hospital bouncing up and down on one of these gym balls trying to encourage Jack into this world without much success to be fair but seeing as I am now over half way through my second pregnancy I thought I would get myself in shape and prepared a lot more than I was the first time round. Thus have had this gym ball since I knew I was pregnant in order to get used to using it and tone up some of the muscles I am going to need during labour. I have previously owned a few different gym balls but have either got rid of them of lent them out to ... Read the complete review

My back has been a bit dodgy of late. I injured it a good few years ago and it's never fully recovered. One of the things I need to do is increase my core strength, focusing on the muscles around the centre of the body, back, stomach and side muscles basically. There are a gazillion different exercises you can do to get this moving, but one of the most helpful items I have found is an exercise ball. If I tried to shout about how this ball is particularly different and better quality than any other ball then I'd clearly be lying. You'll find that the vast majority of exercise balls are pretty much the same, and that the difference will be in air retention and ... Read the complete review

The first gym ball I had was years ago, and it was brought to me by my physiotherapist who showed me a variety of exercises to do on it to assist me with balance issues and stability. Obviously when my course of physiotherapy ended she took the ball away and I had to buy my own. The ball I bought lasted me a few years, but eventually it got a puncture, and needed replacing, and it was this Argos version that I replaced it with. The initial thing I'm going to say about this is that in my experience there is very little difference between brands with an exercise ball because a ball is a ball is a ball generally speaking. Slight difference in the thickness of ... Read the complete review

You may have seen from some of my reviews that I have been healthy eating and trying to lose weight for several months now, if not more. I have lost a few stone (5 or 6) over the past year or two and I have got back in the swing of it recently in a bid to ensure that I do not put any of the weight back on. I have a gym membership now and I like to try and visit 3 times a week, however, sometimes I just don't have the motivation to leave my lovely home on my day off, other than to go to the park with my nieces and nephews, and so I have lots of items at home that I can use to exercise. This includes free weights, Xbox Kinect, a Wii, and a host of other small items that ... Read the complete review
