The Fitness Find That'll Make Crunches Less Miserable (and More Effective)

07/14/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

You know how those huge blowup stability balls always seem like a good idea when you buy one then you get it home and realize it’s impractical, annoying to use and doesn’t seem to do much for your core? So you retire it to the back of the closet and almost never use it again? We know that scenario all to well — which is why we were hesitant to get this mini peanut-shaped version. But as soon as we tested out the portable piece of equipment (and realized it does so much more than tone abs), we were won over. This is definitely not ending up in the back of the closet.

The ball comes with an instructional DVD that shares moves to get your core and lower body toned, as well as a travel-size pump to fill up the peanut. And as always, if you’re a first-time Joyus shopper, you get an extra 15% off your order (enter STYLE15 at checkout). Which would make the ball and DVD cost less than $13.

Order it by clicking on the product in the carousel below the video or by clicking here.

I have this little “bean” and I can confirm that it works well

It was highly recommended to me you need to be on a hard floor with a mat. Anything else is NOT recommended.
You most also stretch out before ALL work outs.

That doesn’t seem to look easier or comfortable to me, I won’t waste my money on it.
