First impressions - Fitness-Mad Studio Pro 500Kg, 55cm,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fitness-Mad Studio Pro Swiss Ball (Misc.)
First up, don't be confused. The product is listed as a "Be-Active Studio Pro Swiss Ball" but has an image of the Fitness-Mad Studio Pro 500Kg Swiss Ball & Pump - Purple, 55cm . The latter is what I was invoiced for & received.
In the box:
- Swiss ball (obviously)
- Hand pump (very effective)
- 2 valve stops/bungs (nice to have a spare)
- Bung/stopper remover
- 55cm measuring band
Inflation took less than 5 minutes. In reviews for the larger sizes there are comments that some found it difficult to blow-up, I didn't have much of a problem; yes, it was tricky to make a good seal between valve and pump when the ball was completely deflated, but after the first half-dozen strokes there was no issue.
The ball feels as robust as you'd expect given the 500kg rating, the valve stopper appears to make a good seal & the surface of the ball is reassuringly grippy.
I'll update this review in a month or so, by which point the ball will have had some serious use.
