Known industry-wide for their commitment to creating innovative fitness training devices, it's no surprise that BOSU have come up with the BOSU Ballast Ball. An exercise ball with a twist, the Ballast Ball features a 2.5lb multi-dimensional load, meaning it never wanders during your workout and can be used to perform exercise progressions and dynamic drills that are not possible with a regular stability ball.
The BOSU Ballast Ball Mini has all the functionality of the regular ball, but in a reduced-size package, making it ideal for users of all ages. With a decreased 45cm diameter, the Ballast Ball Mini is easier to grapple for those with shorter arms, yet provides the same degree of resistance for dynamic, intense workouts.
Who Can Make Gains with the Ballast Ball Mini?
Unlike a regular exercise ball, the Ballast Ball Mini allows scope for more advanced functional and core training. This can really help increase stability, flexibility and strength in your core, leading to measurable performance improvements whether in the gym or on the playing field.
High Quality Design
The BOSU Ballast Ball Mini is constructed from high quality, burst-resistant material and has a special six-sided surface design to aid in proper alignment and positioning. Its multi-dimensional 2.5lb ballast load provides engaging audible, visual and kinaesthetic feedback during lifting, shifting and shaking exercises, making workouts both more fun and more demanding.
The BOSU Ballast Ball is supplied complete with a foot pump and 28-page owner's manual.
