Giveaway – DynaPro Exercise Ball – Ends 02/16

This is a Guest Post Review written by Everything Home Life

DynaPro Exercise Ball Review FB Image

DISCLAIMER: I received this product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

As I’m entering my third trimester of my pregnancy journey, I can’t stress enough how important it is to stay healthy and to be physically active. This pregnancy, I’ve struggled since my first trimester with Symphysis Pubis Dysfunction (SPD). Most have never heard of this and some may experience it late in their third trimester. I’ve been going through extensive physical therapy as well as chiropractic treatment since I was 7 weeks pregnant to strengthen my core and pelvic muscles. Among the many exercises I do daily, having an exercise ball has helped a lot. In this review, I will outline the following points:

  • Choosing the right exercise ball and alternative uses
  • Product overview of the DynaPro Direct Exercise Ball
  • Advantages, disadvantages & my personal experience with this product

The right size exercise ball depends on your height. The shorter you are, the smaller the ball diameter size. Generally an exercise ball is the right fit for you if you can sit on the ball with your feet flat on the ground and have your pelvis, shoulders, and ears in a vertical line (not leaning in any direction). There are so many exercises and benefits to using an exercise ball while pregnant. These are fantastic for strengthening your core and pelvic muscles to get you ready for labor and delivery. Not only are these exercise balls great for prenatal daily use, but they’re also used in yoga, pilates, and home gyms as well as an aid in pregnancy labor and delivery.

DynaPro Direct Exercise Ball Product Overview

  • Made from durable, professional grade PVC Construction
  • Anti-Burst Capacity of up to 2000 lbs
  • Beginner to Expert skill levels
  • Perfect for Physical Therapy, Yoga, Pilates & more
  • Comes in two attractive colors: Pink & Silver
  • Comes with pump and two plugs

Advantages, Disadvantages & my personal experience with DynaPro Exercise Ball

When I got my DynaPro exercise ball I was initially disappointed with the packaging. The package itself was beat up and the contents were falling out. Obviously not the greatest first impression. However, once I put together everything and pumped up the exercise ball, I was very pleased.

DynaPro Exercise Ball Packaging Image

I love the way this ball feels grippy as its made with a durable, professional grade PVC so I’m not afraid of it slipping from underneath me whether I’m on hardwood flooring or carpet. I liked the fact that this ball came with its own pump and an extra plug making it convenient for me as I did not have a pump and would have to go purchase one. This exercise ball comes in one size, which means it was a little big for me as I’m barely 5’2. Although this didn’t stop me from being able to do all the exercises I needed, plus my husband could use it as well. This product comes with instructions on how to blow up the ball with the given pump but there are no other instructions or other information about this particular exercise ball. Overall, I had a great experience with the DynaPro exercise ball and would recommend it to anyone looking for a durable, professional, multi-use exercise ball.

40 Bags in 40 Days – Week 3 Complete (Finally) + Giveaway!

Screen shot 2014-12-29 at 8.40.50 PM

Well I’m 2 days late, but better late than never.  I knew it was going to be a challenge, but it’s getting really tough.  As the days go on I’m starting to lose my motivation, but I’ll do my best to stay on track.  Here’s what I got done for this week.

wpid-imag0052.jpgBag 15:  Things break and I tend to hold on to them thinking I might be able to salvage them.  Who am I kidding?  It was time to get rid of this microwave, we got a new one 3 months ago.  I love using electric skillets.  The teflon on the left one messed up and the one on the right just stopped working.  As for the pitcher, it broke some years ago, but I haven’t wanted to part with it because it’s so darn cute.  I guess it’s time.

wpid-imag0054.jpgBag 16:  I’ve been saving these containers in hopes of repurposing them using some sort of Pinterest.  I just can’t find the time to do anything along those lines.  The oatmeal containers and all lids went into the recycle bin and the Country Times went in the trash (with the lining they have inside I don’t think they’re recyclable).

wpid-imag0004.jpgBag 17:  My cabinet for storage containers was and still is an absolute mess!  I have a lot of mismatched things and had several lids that didn’t go with anything.  Into the recycle bin these went.

wpid-imag0059.jpg

Bag 18:  As a couponer I sometimes get things for free that I don’t need, like these adult diapers.  I’ll be donating these to a local program who helps out elderly patients with transportation and other things.  I’m hoping they’ll have a use for these.

Screen shot 2015-01-25 at 6.45.37 PM

Bag 19:  So this bathroom drawer somehow became a catch all for everything.  There was everything from pencils to a necktie, and a bunch of receipts!?!  So here’s the before and after, let’s hope it stays like this now.

Screen shot 2015-01-25 at 6.52.43 PMBag 20:  I really hate going through mail.  It seems like it’s everywhere in my house.  I tried to get organized with this cardboard file I picked up at Target for like $.30.  I ended up just filling it up in no time and still have mail everywhere.  After cleaning it out the 2 magazines on the left will go with me to work for donation and the stack on the right has been recycled.

Screen shot 2015-01-25 at 7.09.55 PM

Bag 21:  This is my gift closet.  It consists of things I get for cheap/free throughout the year. Whenever a birthday or special occasion comes up I shop from my gift closet first.  I’m enlisting your help to get it organized by giving away a little something just for fun.  I’ve got 3 Boys’ Toddler Valentine Tees up for grabs (2 size 2T and 1 size 4T), 3 winners will be chosen.  If you’re interested enter the giveaway below.  Ends 01/31 at 11:59pm EST.
