Why does exercise equipment have to be so confusing?

I am personally frustrated by the volume of workout equipment that I don't know how to use. I want to workout, but I don't want to have to investigate machinery or work with a trainer to figure out how to do it. This motivated me to create workout equipment that you know how to use the first time you pick it up. This is why Coreculum exists. 

The Core Ball Complete is our first product. We took one of the most fundamental workout devices (a medicine ball), redesigned it, and put a workout guide on it.

Here's how the Core Ball works:

  1. Grab a 12-inch Core Ball at 8, 10, or 12 lbs. 
  2. Decide which body part you want to work or choose to work the entire body.
  3. Select from 16 exercises on the ball labeled by body part: arms, legs, back and core.  
  4. Do the workouts. Check the ball for good form and the appropriate reps and sets.

That's it!

A full body workout will take 30 to 40 minutes. This can be shortened if only a specific body part, such as the legs, are exercised. Also, the workouts don't need to be done all at once. You can break them into chunks. Do 8 exercises in the morning to get moving for the day and 8 in the afternoon to stay energized as you head into the evening.

I have a Core Ball Complete in my office and at my house. I usually start every morning with 8 or 9 exercises. This helps energize me for the day and get loosened up. Usually after a light lunch, I'll do the remaining 8 exercises. This is my daily routine. On the weekend, I do all 16 exercises at once in the morning. This is a more intense workout. Having a ball in my office and at home lets me stay in shape everyday of the week. 

My mission is to create affordable, easy-to-use and well-designed equipment that an athlete or beginner can pick up for the first time and get a great workout. That's what we do.

We'll be launching the Core Ball Complete on Kickstarter on July 22nd. For first access to the best price on the ball and to be a part of launching a completely new type of exercise equipment,  sign up here.
