Not surprisingly, we kick off the ball with the Bosu Ball. A premium category product. We are not entirely biased by the way and will mention the positives alongside it’s biggest flaw: price.

– This is what others have to say about the Bosu Ball:

“After using the Bosu Ball at the gym, I finally decided to treat myself to one at home. This one is even better than the one at the gym. It’s fast to inflate using the hand inflated that was included, but the inflater is kind of cheap. The blue hose kept disconnecting from the yellow pump. As far as a fitness product, there really are very few other pieces of fitness equipment that you can buy that are this versatile and effective. I highly recommend this to anyone looking to improve core strength and improve balance.” – L. Russo
