Pros & Cons
The Gaiam Restore Strong Core & Back Care Kit w/DVD, is made from high quality PVC material with anti-burst technology, which targets back, and core muscles while exercising. The Gaiam Restore ball is very durable and safe to use. It can tolerate up to 300 lbs of weight capacity and is free from six most harmful phthalates. Its unique peanut-shaped ball offers full support to back during workouts and helps to alleviate pain/sore muscles. This design encourages the user to engage in core exercises more efficiently, and minor adjustments in the placement of ball will help in controlling the workout difficulty in return for a stronger, healthier back and firmer midsection.
This tiny little yoga ball helps to stretch and strengthen the spine while increasing the range of motion and improves the form and posture. Quick and easy to inflate, this back care kit includes - a cute green colored peanut shaped ball, air pump and a DVD with 2 workouts. The workouts are of 10 minutes duration and strengthen the core and tone the body from head to toe; and bring stability, flexibility and mobility to back while toning the core. This ball is also perfect as head and neck rest while stretching and exercising on the floor.
However, the only problem faced with the kit was its pump, as it could not inflate the ball fully. In addition, some balls leaked air out while inflating. Some users received the kit with a missing pump.
Overall, the Gaiam Restore Strong Core & Back Care Kit with DVD is highly recommended by users for its perfect size, shape, support and price. It is a bonus yoga tool for people with neck/back surgery background as it not only helps in resistance of the exercises but also protects and supports back to the maximum.
