Fitness Ball Recall!

According to this recent article in NeverSayDiet.com there's been a recall of fitness balls. Do you have one of these? Have you ever had one pop on you?

Now here's something you haven't heard: a recall—not on food—but on a fitness ball.


Picture this. You walk into your gym, grab a trusty (or apparently not-so-trusty) fitness ball to do some hardcore crunches, and next thing you know you're on the floor with a pounding headache—looking at the popped and deflated fitness ball lying next to you.

I have too! I see many of the men working with really heavy weights on the ball and I can imagine there could be some really serious injuries if one were to pop.

That could be painful. I've seen people use balls w/ really heavy weights, instead of a lifting bench.
