Happy Halloween! I’ve got a fun workout and review on the 10 lb Ugi Ball for you to bang out today before gathering up loads of candy! I was recently asked to write a review for the 10 lb Ugi Ball and I jumped at the chance. If you are not familiar with this 15” whimsical ball, its meaning U-G-I stands for U Got It. This fitness product has gained popularity since its appearance and its really no surprise. The 10 lb Ugi arrived and the first thing I noticed was its beautiful teal color. I’m a sucker for pretty things and this ball comes in an array of eye-catching colors. The Ugi comes in 6 different colors, which you can purchase in 6, 8, 10 or 12 lbs sizes.
You may expect the Ugi to be just like a medicine ball, but it is not. When you first touch an Ugi, you will notice unlike a medicine ball, it has a nice squish to it. This squish is the very thing I believe has made this a popular and functional fitness tool. You see, when you perform the huge array of exercises available to do on or with an Ugi, you are forced to engage your core because of this squish. Your stabilizers engage and the workout just got harder.
I’d like to rank these areas of most importance when choosing a workout product or tool. In reviewing this product I used the following criteria:
- Value / Price Point
The at-home system which costs $189 includes the following:
- Ugi Ball
- 5 total body workouts on DVD with instructions, tips, modification for varying fitness levels as well as 150 exercises
- An easy to follow workout guide booklet
- Free Ugi iPhone app with interval timer
- A basic food guide
I wanted to add, that you can in fact purchase a stand alone Ugi Ball without all the other add-ons for $129. Because I had done this with my 12lb ball, I didn’t receive the booklet and DVD which attributed to my love of this product even more. The free timer, 150 exercise guide and follow along DVD were definitely a great addition. I highly recommend the at home bundle is you are interested in purchasing. The series includes 5 days worth of 30 minute workout routines from which you can create endless combinations of exercises and workouts.
It’s touted as an all in one piece of equipment because while its not the most compact piece I own, it is still portable and not unbearable to manage. For $39.95, you can purchase a carrying bag for it if you plan to take it to the gym, but I train with mine at home most often.
It’s a great piece of equipment for warm-up,strength training, stability, core-training and endurance training. Overall, I give the Ugi Ball high ranks in all areas of review. Order your Ugi Ball at home system here!
