    Great for Delivery Exercises for Pregnant wife, sizing guide below, November 25, 2013

    Bought this ball for my pregnant wife. Our doctor strongly recommends these for anyone planning a vaginal birth (can I use that word on an Amazon review?!) to increase flexibility and reduce the chances of tearing. She loves it even though she says it makes her groin sore, but I think thats the whole point. This got delivered when I was away on a business trip, so I was happy to hear she got it assembled without issue and found the pump easy to operate.

    If you are trying to pick the size for your ball, common sizing recommendations are:
    4’11” to 5’4″ height: 55 cm ball
    5’4″ to 5’11” height: 65 cm ball
    5’11” to 6′ 7″ height: 75 cm ball

    My wife is 5’2″ and the 55cm height was spot on for proper exercise. If you are planning to use this as a chair, especially at your desk, you should get one size higher. I could also see older people that don’t want to exercise at a low squat would also need one size higher than the above sizing.

    Excellent ball; a word about “stretching”, September 8, 2013

    After browsing a bewildering assortment of balance/stability balls from different manufacturers and reading the amazon customer reviews, I settled on this Black Mountain Products ball. In a word, it’s fabulous.

    I am 5’7″, so I got the 65cm/26″ ball. My job has recently entailed being tied to my desk like never before. Getting up 2-3 times a day and taking a run down and up three flights of stairs, and walking at lunch, does not help the hips to stay in place. After months of increasing pain and squirming around, I decided to get a ball to sit on. Since I work at one of those modern cubicle-counter-tops-sitting-on-file-cabinets it is higher than a desk should be, and I was concerned about the height of the ball but so far, so good.

    Based on other amazon customers who had bought different brands, further selling points for me for this particular ball were: a smooth, non-sticky texture (one thing other-brand ball customers complained about) and no vinyl/rubber smell whatsoever beyond the faintest whiff for 2 seconds when removed from its bag. The 2000-lb burst rating was also a factor.

    All of the other reviews mention that any balance ball needs to stretch after being inflated. Here’s an additional word to anyone who has just gotten their ball and thinks they got the wrong ball size by mistake: So did I. Give it time – the ball quite LITERALLY needs to breathe, expand, stretch, and get bigger. It seems impossible. I inflated it to what I thought was nearly bursting point, and my husband and I measured it; the height was barely 22″ (which is the smaller sized ball) and the circumference when measured with a piece of string was 51″. There is no marker on the ball to indicate which size it actually is. I put the ball in a safe corner and decided I would contact the manufacturer on Monday morning. Had dinner and watched a movie, and 3 hours later checked on the ball. It looked bigger. I started pumping it up more. In two minutes, it looked enormous. Measured the circumference again with string, measured the string with a carpenter’s tape measure…and darned if it wasn’t at 80″ just where it was supposed to be for the 65cm/26″ ball!

    All in all, an excellent value for the price. (It would be nice if it came in a color other than black.)

    UPDATE
    ————–
    After a month or so, I no longer had to “top off” the ball any more. It holds the right amount of air all the time. I still use it frequently and am happy with this purchase. Bumping to 5 stars.

    ORIGINAL
    ————–
    This ball is well constructed and holds air fairly well. So far I’m pleased with it. I mostly use it for core exercises and to sit on while watching TV.

    I only give it 4 stars because I do seem to have to top it off with the foot pump about once a week. I think maybe the new rubber was stretching out because lately it has needed refilling less often. Hopefully that will stabilize completely. Even requiring a few pumps every week isn’t bothering me too much.

    I weigh close to 300 pounds and even when I bounce on this thing pretty hard, it holds up fine. It seems to be as strong as advertised.
