Lasted from August 19th-October 24th- updating my review to show the power in customer service. After finding out my yoga balls were not returnable, I was a bit bummed. I’m currently using these yoga balls in my 3rd grade classroom for flexible seating. After one ball started showing signs of leaking and constant pumping back up, I submitted my review to show the time frame of one of my flawed yoga balls. The company contacted me immediately, and to my surprise sent me two new balls to tryout with my students. They absolutely will be thrilled to see their favorite yoga ball back in the classroom!! Thank you- the power of customer service...
The ball itself works well and is very comfortable to sit on. Im currently 9 months pregnant and it really takes away my pelvic pain! I got the biggest ball they had which worked great for me because I'm a tall woman I'm 6ft1in. The only complaint I have is the ball itself came with some scuff marks on it which to me is tacky.Update!The seller sent me a new ball for no charge! It shows me that they care about the customers! The new ball I got was perfect!
Leaks air. Pump it up, use it....then pump it again. Cannot find a hole to patch or fix. It just... leaks air somehow. Maybe i got a dud.UPDATE: The company has replaced the ball. I did, indeed, have a dud. The replacement is exactly was i was hoping for. I filled it up the first time, used it for a week, then filled it the rest of the way (allows the material to finish stretching after being squished down to fit in the box). i am completely satisfied with this ball, and will recommend it for everyone needing one.The multiple sizes are great for a variety of activities. The box includes a pump so there is no need to go out and buy one. The material is non-slip, so the ball stays put on my wooden floors, and my bottom doesn't slide off.All in all? One of the best purchases i've ever made.
This exercise ball is made with high quality, durable material. It’s very bouncy, sturdy, non-sticky, and non-slippery. The lines on the ball make it easy to hold, squeeze, and bounce even if you’re a heavy sweater. I use the ball both for exercise and as an office chair. I followed the size chart to find the right size, and this worked perfectly for me. The ball is packaged with a small foot pump, and took about 5 minutes to inflate. Also enclosed are an air hose, two different sizes of nozzles for the air hose, three white plug pins, and a plug pull clip. The colours are vibrant and aesthetically pleasing, and I used nail polish to paint the heads of the plug pins the same color as my ball.Although the simple instructions for initial inflation and use are posted midway down the product page, the instructions enclosed in the package are not nearly as clear and comprehensive. Before using for the first time, 1) use the enclosed measuring tape or your own tape measure to make a note of your ball height (45cm, 55cm, 65cm, etc.) with a piece of tape or post-it note on the wall (do not use it to measure the diameter of the inflated ball), 2) pump the ball up to about 80% of that height and leave it for 24 hours without using, 3) after 24 hours, pump the ball to slightly more than the full height (you’ll lose a little air when you transfer in the plug after pumping) then leave it for another 24 hours before using.
After speaking with customer service they actually send me a replacement and I was able to get a working pump. The ball is nice, and seems sturdy but didn’t work for me. I can’t get it to inflate at the size I need it but it’s a good ball.First of all, I noticed the little parts coming of the ball and a very weird order. Had to get it cleaned up with wipes, also noticed marks like dents. The pump wasn’t working properly, so it took a long time and eventually had to use my air compressor. I noticed, that after the first sitting today it lost some air, will try to air up again. If issue persist will reach out for a return.
