Exercise Ball on Sale: The Best Places Online and
Looking for an exercise ball on sale?
Most gyms and fitness centers do not get their exercise
balls from a department store. They use reputable companies which
will be listed on this page.
Here are the top places that I have found to get
an exercise ball on sale. The top 3 websites I have found are listed
below. If you don't want to order online, you can always go to one
of the stores I list below and pick one up there.
Here are my favorite websites to get an exercise
ball. They offer a great variety and high quality products
This is my favorite website online for fitness equipment.
Not only do they sell high quality equipment, but they are the only
site which has tons of articles and input from some of the top experts
in each area of the field.
The exercise balls offered here are called Gymnic
Stability Balls. They offer two kinds, the Gymnic Stability Ball
Plus and the regular Gymnic Stability Ball. The Gymnic Stability
Ball Plus is made of burst resistant vinyl, which deflates very
slowly if the ball is punctured. The regular Gymnic Stability Ball
does not have the same burst resistant vinyl.
Both kinds are made of latex free vinyl.
The Gymnic Stability Ball Plus
starts at $22.95. The regular Gymnic Stability Ball ranges from
Also offered on this page is a unique piece of equipment
called a Physio-Ball. This is similar to a regular exercise ball,
but has a peanut shape instead of a spherical shape. This shape
only allows it to go forwards and backwards, but not side to side.
I also really enjoy some of the DVD's on this site.
The Essence of Stability Ball Training Volume 1 and 2 by JC Santana
are excellent. Both of them are very thorough in explaining the
theory of exercise ball training, as well as demonstrating hundreds
of different exercises for the most basic beginner to the elite
athlete. Volume 1 covers chest, shoulders, back, and balance training,
while Volume 2 covers legs, hips, and core. The price is a little
steep at $49.95 each, but you will not find higher quality information
anywhere else. It is a great place to get an exercise ball on sale!
Another great site is Power-Systems.com. They have
an exercise ball on sale which is called a Resist-A-Ball. They start
at $15.95, which is most certainly a very reasonable price.
There is a whole site dedicated to the Resist-A-Ball
at http://www.resistaball.com. They have all kinds of information
available, as well as localized workshops all over the country for
people who want to learn.
On top of having exercise balls for cheap, they
also sell pumps as well. As you saw in the How to Pump and Exercise
Ball page, the easiest way to do it is with a motorized pump. However,
a manual one such as the ones sold by Power-Systems will do just
They have a page which tells you what size exercise
ball you should have which is determined by your height. Along with
that, there is a very large selection of different sizes and colors.
There is also a large veriety of information products
related to exercise balls. They have books on how to use an exercise
ball in conjunction with yoga, free weights, Pilates, core training,
flexibility and more.
Just go to the homepage and click on the "stability
ball" link on the left hand side.
This website is cool because it offers free shipping!
It has a type of exercise ball on sale called a Fitball. It comes
in different sizes, and when purchased come with a pump and an exercise
The selection from this site are pretty cost efficient
as well, but my favorite thing is the variety of information and
products that are all geared towards having good posture and maintaining
a healthy back. If you have bad posture, it effects your body adversely
in many different ways.
Did you know that some people use an exercise ball
as a chair? It almost forces you have to good posture, because if
you slouch you will fall backward!
Go have a look around the site and see what you
Walmart, Target, Dick's, etc.
If you prefer not to order online or you are so
excited to get an exercise ball on sale (c'mon, I know you are),
then you can go to just about any department store and pick one
up. Walmart and Target both have exercise balls which are fairly
inexpensive though. At Target, each one comes with a pump. If you
go this route, I highly advise using something else! I once tried
pumping one up with the cheesy plastic pump they give you, and it
would have taken well over an hour of constant pumping just to get
it to take shape.
The quality at a place like this won't be quite
that of a health club or from the sites listed above, but will serve
the purpose just fine if pumped up and used properly.
