Get in Gear: Massage Gym Ball

I always see the most interesting gym accessories and one of the most interesting finds that I've recently come across is a Massage Gym Ball ($8.99).

Basically it is just like any other stability/exercise ball, except that it’s covered in little nubs -- My guess is that some people use it to get a mini-massage while doing their exercises on the ball. While I am all for multitasking, I have yet to find the need for this in my own home gym, but I find them interesting to use at the gym. If getting a mini massage while working your core sounds like a great idea, then buy the ball from Amazon.com.

I'll stick with my smooth grey ball, because that just looks painful! Thanks, megan83!

I don't recommend these. Those little nubs are a lot spikier that you'd think! I ended up buying a new one.

I use this in my gym bc it is the best sized ball... but I never knew it was for a massage? It doesn't feel very different, so I'd save my money!

I wonder how effective it is? I just want it because it's pink. My ball is a boring gray color.
