If you want to get fit, I cant recommend this enough! Its excellent. I got this for my daughter, who wants to lose weight and tone up for her school prom in June, & im well impressed!! We'ed looked at loads of gym balls not really knowing what was what! So we decided on Gyrobix Fitness Set including the Aerobic Step, 65cm Gym Ball, Pump, Resistance Bands & 1kg Dumbbell because it has absolutly everything you could want, or need, to lose weight and tone up. The steps sturdy and you dont feel like its going to break the first time you stand on it. Just as well if your gona be jumping up and down on it. The resistance bands look 'puney' but theyre surprizingly strong. We were abit gentle with them at first but once the husb had tugged on them, and they didnt break, we were'nt as gentle. You can also use the band with the Wii Fit games. The dumbbells are ok if your just starting to use weights. You can always get heavier ones when youve got used to them. Only down side is pumping the ball up. It kills your arms!! Mind you, like i said to my daughter, its good exercise for the arms!! I really dont think theres anything bad i can say about this set. Its cheap, well made and does everything you'd expect it to do. And, to top it off, its a 'wicked' colour. Well worth every penny!!!
