Exclamation Gadget Flashback: Leslie's Weighted Balls (WATP)

I still do the old Walk Away The Pounds workouts regularly. I don't have the weighted balls anymore. I think mine were defective. One expanded and one shrunk. I don't think she even sells these any more. I did like them while they lasted!


Now I use Billy's balls or wrist weights.

ETA: I see that Amazon sells a "Gold's Gym 2 lb Toning Ball." One ball for $24? I don't think so!

I saw the picture, and had to check mine, cause they're green: mine are Karen Voight 3lb balls.

I think my Leslie version deflated years ago. I bought replacements at Ross years ago. I am actually going to give them and other Leslie gadgets to my sister. I do not use them anymore.

I have those also. I no longer have the workout, though.

i have something similar to Karen's voight's balls that i got from Walmart. they're green too. i had Karen's workout (streamline fitness) before i got into Leslie.

like Alta, over the years, mine have gotten flat. there's a hole for inflating that i never did re-inflate.

Are we talking about Leslie's balls or my boobs? No need to get personal!

I have 2 of these purchased a while ago from my local Walmart that cost MUCH less. My local stores seem to have scaled back that department, but you might want to check in store and/or Walmart online.
