Argos Value Gym Ball
Advantages: You can feel your muscles working, helps with your posture
I have owned my gym ball for roughly a year now, it did live in a box for a while along with every other fad exercise item I have bought and regretted. This however is one of the few things that was not a complete waste of time or money. To start with it cost a little over £5 and I am still using it. I have misplaced the CD I bought with specific exercises on it, but thanks to the joy of the internet I have found more now than there were on the CD anyway.
My ball is a darker shade of grey than the ball in the picture plus it's not shiny. It comes flay which doesnt take up any space at all, deflating the ball doesnt take too long either but I tend to keep mine pumped up and sit on it rather than the sofa or dining chair. The idea of this ball is it works your CORE muscles while you use it, you can do everything with this ball from sit ups to press ups, just sitting on the ball helps with your posture while using your stomach muscles to retain your balance. You can actually feel the muscles you are using getting a work out which I do like. I still have balance issues with the ball but doing press ups while your feet are balancing on the ball has got to be a bit tricky for anyone. I have unfortunately broken the foot pump that came with my ball so need to find a replacement, although at £5 I can afford to buy a completely new ball. Well worth the effort of pumping the ball up.
Summary: Well worth £5
