I Tried It: The Ugi Ball Workout
Meet your new fitness BFF. Her name is Ugi and she’s a ton of fun. Details on the most fun you can have working out with a ball …
I recently tested out the Ugi fitness system. I’m not certain how to pronounce “Ugi” or exactly how to describe it, but I can say that it’s a fresh way to work out at home, or well, anywhere. Turns out, this squishy, pleather-esq fitness ball is pretty fun.
Created by a celeb fitness trainer, the Ugi system offers a boatload of exercises and moves (think yoga meets pilates meets playing ball on the beach) that you can do in the comfort of your living room–even the smallest living room.
Last night I took my post-baby body through a 30-minute Ugi routine, and it was … fun! And, I’ll also add that I felt pretty sore the next morning. But, I did feel, oddly, stronger and stretched. Keep up with this a few times a week, and I might just get my old lean and svelte bod back (I’m working hard!).
Ugi isn’t cheap. $129 gets you the ball, and $189 for the entire fitness system (which comes with a CD, food guide and a book with all the moves), but if you’re feeling burned out on your current fitness routine, this may be just the thing to get you in gear again.
Sound like something you’d be into?
