Stay Put Exercise Ball: BOSO Ballast Ball

We all know and love traditional stability balls but do you find it really annoying that they never stay put? Balls are always rolling all over the place at my gym -- It's so frustrating!

The Ballast Ball ($59.95, includes foot pump and workout DVD) is a weighted stability ball that stays where you put it. This ball makes it possible to perform new exercises and allows for better execution of a wide variety of seated, lying, side-lying and traveling exercises involving dumbbells, kettlebells, cable pulley systems and medicine balls. What's even more? The ball stacks easily, which means no more chasing them around the gym. Other than using the ball as a chair or bench, you can also perform throwing, receiving, lifting and shifting drills in another manner than using just weighted medicine balls.

I love doing circuits with the stability ball but it's a real pain to have to go find the ball after using it, with the BOSO Ballast Ball, this is no longer an issue. Also, I don't know about you but exercise balls are not typically part of my decor at home (despite my love for fitness), so I get totally frustrated when my stability ball rolls itself all over my house. If you have a home gym, I highly recommend the ballast ball because it stays where you put it. Buy one from

I agree, it is a bit expensive. What's inside? Sand?

It does seem pretty expensive.

Freakin awesome! I wish it didn't cost so much though- about 3 times the cost of a regular one just for "weighted material." I wonder what's in it!
