Pro 11 Wellbeing Yoga Ball: A Good Choice For Smaller Users

[ad_1]

Robust and grippy, the diminutive Pro 11 Wellbeing Yoga Ball is an excellent travel option at an affordable price…

For its excellent price we can forgive Pro 11 Wellbeing – better known for its specialist insoles and supports than producing the best exercise balls – for not including a pump with its gym ball. But if you can get your hands on an electric or hand pump it takes about three minutes to get the ball from folded flat to fully inflated.

Men’s Fitness verdict

Robust and grippy, the diminutive Pro 11 Wellbeing Yoga Ball is an excellent travel option at an affordable price. It might be too small for larger users though.

Pros

  • Great value
  • Grippy surface
Cons

  • Needs guesswork to get firmness right
  • Only available in 55cm

How we test the best exercise balls

Our testers used each exercise ball as part of their day-to-day fitness routine for at least a month. They tested them during bodyweight workouts, resistance weight training and mobility work and judged them on their firmness, durability and comfort – taking price, maximum load, ease of inflation and colour/size options and accessories into account when awarding a final score.

Pro 11 Wellbeing Yoga Ball features

Once inflated, it’s easily secured with one of the two included plugs – we always like having a spare. With no instructions or tape measure to gauge the right size, though, it can take a few attempts to get the firmness right. Pump it up sufficiently and it feels firm and supportive, even when using with free weights, although it can deflate slightly over time – particularly in a cold gym. 

Unlike some exercise balls on test, the Pro 11 Wellbeing Yoga Ball comes in only one size – 55cm – which is a little small for our liking. Those with longer limbs will probably want to look elsewhere. However, this does make it light and easy to transport, so could be useful if swapping between home and office regularly.

The slip-resistant material and anti-slip rings help the ball grip nicely to the floor, so it’s a good choice if you intend to use it for any kind of dynamic exercise, where the ball could slide out from under you.
