Pros:Excellent for building muscles, for Yoga and for Pilates

Cons:Takes up a lot of space

The Bottom Line: Great for Yoga, Pilates and back therapy.


Hubby recently threw his back out badly. He could barely walk. He went to his Orthopoedist and after a few visits was set up with physical therapy. One of the items recommended to ease his pain and strengthen his back muscles was the Fitness Quest 65 cm Flexaball.

We found this at Target on sale for $19.99. It's easy to transport home because it comes flattened you need to inflate it. We have scuba tanks so it was easy for us to inflate. You could always take yours to a a gas station and get it pumped up I suppose. It's large so it takes quite a bit of air. It measures almost 22" off the ground. This is a real issue for storage. We certainly don't want to have to inflate and deflate. So for now , it's rolling around a corner of hubby's office. Hardly decorative, it's bright blue with ridges.

If we don't keep it out within hubby's reach he won't use it. He's supposed to lean back on it and roll back by pushing with his feet until he is arched backwards over the ball. Then he does crunches from that position. The exercises along with therapy three times a week for 6 weeks really put him back on his feet. Unfortunately, now that he's feeling pretty good he really isn't sticking with his blue ball therapy. Isn't that always the case!

He hasn't put the ball away so I guess he's still somewhat committed to maintaining the program.

You can also purchase a Balance Ball Beginners Workout DVD. It will lead you through Yoga techniques which will give you core strength and ability to hold postures longer, you can also use thie Fitness Quest Flexaball for Pilates and traditional strength and flexibility training.

Sizes available: sm med large 55 ( 5 '0"-5'5" )65 cm (5'6"-5'11") 75 cm (6'0"-6'3")

The Fitness Quest Ball is very sturdy and weight tested. It can hold up to 300 pounds

Before inflating a ball, check for any damage. You will see slight creases (fold marks) when it is first inflated. If it has been punctured or gouged don't try to fix it yourself. Contact the manufacturer. Make sure that the ball is at room temperature before inflating.

A new ball will not be able completely inflate on the first go round. Wait a few hours then the ball will be more pliable and you can add more air .

The instructions tell you that before inflating you should use a yard stick or tape measure to mark the size of your ball in centimeters (55, 65 or 75) on a wall or on the floor. Then yo bein to inflate the ball as much as possible, without over inflating. The ball will stretch a bit once you begin to use it and you can add more air as you see fit. A warning:Never inflate the ball larger than the centimeters in diameter indicated on the box.

Before you use the ball check the area for sharp objects. If possible, use a carpeted surface or exercise mat when using the ball. The ball shouldn't be used outdoors because of the chance of puncturing it. The ball should be inspected for gouges and deep scratches before you begin to use it

Cleaning the ball is easy you can use soapy water. No use abrasive cleaners since they may scratch the ball. Don't let the ball come in contact with newspaper, photocopies or the ink will mark the ball permanently.

The ball is exellent if you use it, if not you have an awfully large less than decorative object to deal with.
