Good value, but basic
on 30 July 2010
I've had these items a couple of weeks now, and the only thing I still regularly use are the dumbbells.
At 0.5kg each, the dumbbells are adequate for anyone who just wants a little light arm exercise/toning. If you want a little more, then it's quite easy to hold both in one hand, thereby boosting the load to 1kg.
I have trouble balancing on the gym ball. I don't know if it's just me or if it's a sign of the quality of the ball, but I'm disappointed.
The resistance bands - at over 9 feet - are far too long, and can't be cut shorter without ruining them. For me, they are totally useless.
It seemed a good value set compared to others out there, but in hindsight, I would have been better off spending a little more to get better quality, as overall, it's very basic.
