Review Summary

This is the summary of consumer reviews for Gaiam Total Body Balance Ball Kit. The BoolPool rating for this product is Good, with 3.90 stars, and the price range is $19.99-$24.99.

The Gaiam Total Body Balance Ball Kit is designed to develop a Balance Ball workout with resistance training with maximum results. The ball helps in improving the body's core strength and natural balance while being trimmed and toned without hurting or straining back or joints. The kit includes a plastic hand air pump to inflate the ball and 2 DVD's designed by Tanja Djelevic, first one includes 3 part workout of 60 minutes targeting upper body, lower body and abs; plus second DVD targets the Balance Ball training for beginners. These balls are available in 3 sizes and each size is suitable for individuals within a certain height range.

However, the ball requires a bit of exertion to inflate, especially the first time. Some users received balls that leaked after inflation, or wrong sizes. At times, the ball did not match the size claimed by the manufacturer. 

Overall, the Gaiam Total Body Balance Ball Kit is highly recommended by users for simple exercises, quality, reliability and durability within the right price range. Now you can tone, sculpt and chisel your shoulders, arms, thighs and abs in the comfort of your home, office or gym.
