Q: Why won’t my lighted walking weights turn on?

A: If you are unable to turn on the lights for the lighted walking weights using the button found at the top of the handle, please check to ensure the plastic pull-tab has been removed from the battery. You can find the pull-tab under the strap towards the top of your walking weight below the button used to turn the product on. If it has not been removed, you should be able to easily see the pull-tab.

Q: Can ankle/wrist weights be used for water aerobics?

A: No, they cannot. They contain steel bars and sand and a steel shot fill that will rust if submerged in water. Do not attempt to wash the product in a washing machine for this reason as well.

A: Yes, extenders are available as applicable via customer service.

A: Yes, please review the current assortment at

Q: Are you supposed to wear the waist trimmer under or over your clothes?

A: Either way is fine. However if you wear it over a T-shirt then the shirt will absorb the sweat and keep the waist trimmer belt a little cleaner.

Q: What is the weight limit for core balls?

A: Approximately 300lbs

Q: What does “burst resistant” mean?

A: Burst resistant means that if punctured, the ball will deflate instead of popping like a balloon. The speed of deflation depends on how severely the ball is punctured.

Q: When are core products inflated properly? (How do you know when it is inflated properly?)

A: Start by filling the ball to the proper size (55cm Core Ball=172.7cm Circumference. 65cm Core Ball= 204.1cm Circumference). When the user sits on the ball with feet flat on the floor, thighs should be parallel to the floor. If this is not the case, deflate if necessary, or purchase a larger core ball. Note that deflation will reduce the firmness of the ball.

Q: Do you have patches for your core products?

A: No. Never patch any of our inflated core products.

Q: Can toning and medicine balls be re-inflated?

A: Yes, they can. They require a bicycle style hand pump with a ball needle.

Q: What happens if the ball pops or has a leak?

A: Our balls should not “pop”, they should deflate because they are made of a special burst resistant material. If product has a leak upon initial inflation it should be exchanged at the store. Our balls are very durable but they should be kept away from any sharp objects, rocks and pets that could damage the surface of the ball and cause a leak. A ball damaged in this fashion should be thrown out and is not covered under our standard warranty.

Q: How do I inflate the ball?

A: Remove white plug from ball. Insert hand pump firmly into hole. Inflate ball until it is the proper size (55cm Core Ball=172.7cm Circumference. 65cm Core Ball= 204.1cm Circumference). Insert white plug back into hole until it is flush with the surface of the ball. To check height of ball: Sit on ball with feet flat on floor. Thighs should be parallel to the floor. If not, adjust ball with more or less air until proper thigh alignment attained. Do not over inflate.

Q: How do I use the hand pump?

A: Make sure both pieces are assembled together. Insert the ribbed nozzle into the hole (remove the white plug if still inserted). Grasp the cylinder section of the pump with the other hand. Move the cylinder section up and down to put air into the ball.

Q: How can I deflate the ball?

A: Remove plug from ball. Squeeze out air.

Q: How can I store the ball?

A: Most people keep the ball inflated so it is ready to use at all times. However it is possible to deflate the ball by removing the plug and squeezing the air out of the ball. Deflated ball should be stored in a room temperature environment.

Q: How do I assemble the hand pump?

A: Screw black top onto colored handle.

Q: What if the hand pump is hard to use or jammed?

A: Contact Customer Service for a replacement. Or you could use a bicycle pump if you have a pump with a nozzle that will fit the ball. If using a compressor it is best to only fill the ball part way and then finish filling it with a hand or bicycle pump to avoid damaging the ball from over inflation.

Q: Can anyone use this ball?

A: This product is for adult use only. Additionally, check package to determine ball most appropriate for your height. 55cm balls are intended for people up to 5ft 6in tall. 65cm balls are intended for people 5ft 6in and over.

A: Our core balls can be used on any flooring surfaces that are clean, dry and free of any debris or sharp objects.

Q: For the 3-in-1 Coreball Plus, can I use the ball without the stability ring?

A: Yes

Q: How does the ring help?

Q:Does the Ultimate Abs Ball come in different sizes?

A: No

Q: How does the “peanut” shape affect your workout?

Q: What is inside the medicine balls?

Q: Are the mats waterproof?

A: They are not waterproof and they should never be submerged in water which includes a washing machine. However they ARE resistant to sweat and can be easily cleaned with water or mild cleansers.

A:  In an effort to ensure environmental sustainability, several years ago the EPA regulated the furniture industry and mandated that they remove certain chemicals that had been previously added to their finishes. Once these regulations were passed, the final wood finishes were more susceptible to damage from plastics and other materials and products.  As a result, plastics may now harm wood finishes.  Direct contact with the ball is not harmful to people, only to wood finishes.“
