Better than the bosu!!!!!!! :D,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: York Fitness Tone Dome (Sports)
As a personal trainer I specialize in core stability straining, I wanted a stability trainer for home and to work with clients. I have a lot of experience working with the Bosu. After reading the reviews I chose the famously fit dome and also due to the price difference. Delivery was very quick and it was easy to inflate!
the dome is excellent!! It is very well made and strong. The max weight is 120kg, my partner (a bodybuilder weighing 111kg) tried it for a number of exercises and also found it very efficient. When flipped over to stand on the flat side, the grip is great, a lot better than the bosu which has no grip and just a flat surface. I tried all exercises on it and it works brilliant, the grip is great for squats/superman etc.
When flipped onto the red dome side for crunches etc, due to the more round shape the dome is extremely efficient for crunches/ab work, it works the abs a lot better than the flatter bosu and really isolates the abdominals.
Overall this dome is excellent and very reasonable priced!! I was surprised to find it far better than the more expensive bosu. The rounder dome shape is better for core stability and also for all other exercises. I am very happy with my purchase and if i ever need another stability trainer i will definitely purchase the York fitness famously fit Done instead of the bosu. Also I personally feel the bright colours are great!!! :D
