Powerball Blue 250Hz product reviews

'Younger brother' of the 250Hz Pro model, this superlative gyro offers exactly the same high speed performance but ships without the digital speed meter which can be added at a later stage when required.

The same thorough workout on your arms and wrists therefore and at a very affordable price!

In line with the fitness kick that got started with the Elite Fitness Challenge I did a while back, I bought a cheap little gyroscopic resistance ball off an internet auction site. I was quite disappointed with the results I got, and wrote to the retailers who explained that it was indeed a basic unit and that they were put up for sale at a heavily discounted price in order to clear out stock.

In an effort to please the customer, me, they kindly agreed to send a more advanced unit and let us put it through it's paces and review it.

What a difference!!! After seeing the truely scary 43-second movie of 'Akis', possibly the world's most power user of powerballs (the ball is literally thrying to throw him around, it's exerting that much gyro force!) I was hoping this unit wasn't the top-line model... thankfully it's not. There are more advanced, powerful unit for the serious user.

I found that once I developed the right rhythm and cyclic rotational speed, the unit powered up to a solid whine of power and my arm was feeling the resistance generated by the gyroscopic inner core spinning. It wasn't long before my wrist was feeling the burn and I had to stop, but over time I have managed to stretch the limit out so that I get a good workout without pain.

The unit seems to be well constructed, solid and sealed so that it won't fly apart at extreme speeds, and with a good high-friction rubber gripping band. If used properly should provide the sensible user with an excellent workout. Cheaper than small weights, and with the advantage of being user-configurable to give a weak, moderate or strong workout.

Overall... not entirely my first choice of fitness equipment, but at this price, let's face it, it's worth a try. Considering what you're going to be paying for other equipment that could do the job for you, this is a great option to explore that could potentially save you a serious packet of hard-earned credit.
