I received the Forever Flex Exercise Ball for free to review via Tomoson.com. My views are my own and I do not recommend anything if I don’t believe in it.
I love lifting weights, but lifting doesn’t always love me. During the times when my bones and joints are particularly sensitive, Pilates and yoga are my jams. When I need to get off the floor for lifting or ab work, I get on a ball. Well, I used to until the dogs made a chew toy out of my last one. It’s my fault for leaving a partially deflated ball within their lines of sight. I loved that thing. I’d sit on it when working at my desk or reading in addition to using it in place of a weight bench. And it was purple, too! Sigh.
I was on the market for a new one when a review opportunity brought one to me. Live Infinitely’s Forever Flex Exercise Ball is perfect! It’s available in several sizes, two colors, affordably priced, strong, and comes with a pump, extra valve plug, plug remover, and training plan. Thanks to Amazon Prime, I had mine in my hands two days after placing the order. I went with the dark gray instead of purple this time. Hopefully the pups won’t mistake it for one of their toys.
Have you used an exercise ball? If not, you need to make sure you get the right size for your needs. Since I’m not the tallest person, I selected the 55 cm size (for those of us under 5′ 6″). Live Infinitely has them available for people in the 5′ 6″ to 5′ 11′ range (65 cm), 6′ to 6′ 4″ (75 cm) and taller than 6′ 4″ (85 cm). Using one that’s too small or large will throw you out of proper alignment.
Oops, looks like the man and boy will need their own since mine is too small for them.
Once I inflated this baby, I decided to get some ab work in. This industrial PVC ball is strong! It holds up to 2200 pounds (way over my weight) and anti-burst tested. I finished my workout and was beginning to regret but not regret how hard I went. I sat on the ball for a while before making a recovery drink.
The Forever Flex Exercise Ball is easy to clean and has non-slip ridges that came in handy on the hardwood floor. It also comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and fantastic customer service. Would I buy this? Yes, and I will buy a bigger one for the man and boy if they request it. I might make that one purple. You know, so we can tell them apart at a quick glance.
So, do you use an exercise ball? Tell me about it.
