As many of you already know, I’m always seeking out new ways to add to my fitness repertoire. I tend to get bored easily and I like things that mix it up and make it fun. The Garage Fit Soft Medicine Ball really brought me back to my days in gym class… it was one of my favorite things to use as a kid. Now I’m using it in different ways as an adult.
The first thing you’ll notice about the Garage Fit Soft Medicine Ball is the strong synthetic leather material that the wall ball is made with. This really does look and feel like leather and not like cheap vinyl. It gives it a great level of strength to handle just about anything you can throw at it… or throw it at! The material also gives you great grip when your hands get sweaty. The stitching is all even and strong including the embroidered logo. As I’ve said many times before, an attention to detail shows a company wants to put out the best product.
The ball I have is an eight-pound solid black. They also have red and blue options available and you can get them in sizes from 4 pounds on up to 30 pounds. The size you need is going to depend on how you intend to use the ball and your own strength level. I recommend researching the topic to find your own needs. You’ll probably find that you will want or need many.
I have been using my Garage Fit Soft Medicine Ball to increase resistance on many basic exercises. If you’re new to medicine balls and wall balls, I recommend searching YouTube for tutorial videos. One of my favorites is to combine a squat with a toss of the medicine ball. Squat down with the ball held close and then make a controlled jump up from the squat and toss the ball up. It’s amazing for arms, legs, and your bottom. 😉 I also like doing crunches and twists with the ball held between my hands.
Some of the exercises I do involves tossing the ball against the wall. There is enough give in the ball and the material is strong enough that both the ball and the wall do not show damage after lots of use and abuse. I did have a bit of paint transfer, but that’s the fault of a lousy paint job and it has not affected the look of our wall.
Overall, I am really impressed with the quality and versatility. The price might make you cringe a bit… especially if you want more than one… but I do believe you are getting a professional gym quality medicine ball. It’s worth it!
