Consumer Review
The DVD alone is worth it.
I just love this little thing. It really targets back and ab muscles effectively. I have exercise balls of various shapes and sizes which give me good ab and back workouts, but this little peanut is deceptively challenging. I really like the DVD which comes with the kit too. The exercises are challenging and the video features some really nice balance moves as well. The instructor is good and gives encouragement without being loud or obnoxious. There are no other participants in the video (which I appreciate). The only problem I had with this product was the pump: it leaked air out as the ball inflated, and this made it impossible to fully inflate. The good thing is that the sturdy metal pin which comes with the kit could be used with another pump I own, so it wasn’t a problem. (The ball needs a pump that uses one of those tiny little pins, like that which is needed to inflate basketballs, footballs, etc.) But since the pump issue may have been a defect of my kit alone, I don’t want…

    what a workout!
    I use this several times a week, and the advanced exercises are super hard! Variations of the basir routine are enough to keep the abdominals tight. I have a six-pack at 50!
