Fitness Balls

Who has one? I am shopping around and I see all types of brands and prices, the highest was over two hundred bucks for a ball. I just had to laugh at that one. I have seen a few like BOSU, is that worth the price?

Wow where did you see one for that price

Over here in the UK you can get fitness balls for under 10 either, not sure they would make any difference compared to others more expensive, more likely branded.

Holy cow! Was that ball made of gold or what? I picked one up for $20ish. There are several different balls out there. I think the key is sitting on one and seeing how it feels. I like the weighted ones, they don't roll as easy. I have not mastered my ball yet but I am trying. I have one at work and one at home. I sit on the one at work for a couple hours each day. I am working on balance and building my stomach muscles.

It was on some site called mansion something or something mansion if I remember right. I am happy to hear that I can get the cheaper ones and not sacrifice anything. Right now I have been working on push-ups and for some reason I was thinking these might help. Is that right?

They certainly make push ups more challenging it makes it more unstable, so works your core more!

That is what I was thinking. We have some errands to run this weekend so I am going to stop by a few stores to see what in store pricing looks like. If they are all bad I will just bundle the order with my next Amazon shopping trip.
