75cm ball - Better quality than expected!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 66Fit Gym Ball With Pump & Dvd (Sports)
I needed a ball on the advice of my physio, did a bit of looking but bought this mostly on customer reviews. It arrived within 48 hours, and I was pleasantly surprised at the product - the ball is a durable, weighty plastic and the components are fairly robust. I would say the "plastic-y smell" isn't half as bad as some people have been making out, it's typical of this material but not bad!
I expected problems with the double-action pump following some reviews, but had no issues with it whatsoever - from receiving the package to using the ball took about 10 minutes. I would advise pumping the ball up in one go - as it reaches about 70% inflation, the air will leak out through the pump if you stop pumping! Hard work, but gets the job done quickly and without problems.
I ordered the 75cm ball (I'm 5'10") as it was the size of the one I was using in the gym; I'm glad I did, as this one is just about the right height for sitting on with knees bent less than 90deg. Any smaller and I possibly would have had problems with over-flexing my knees.
Haven't watched the DVD as I had a prescribed set of exercises, but I might get bored later on....!
Very pleased with the purchase, and Amazon as a speedy and efficient vendor.
