When it comes to fitness reviews I usually get Sarah to do them as she’s all bodybuilder and hardcore, but when she saw these she laughed too hard to use them. So I did. Now, let’s get something straight here. This Powerspin is unique and it is funny to watch and it will NOT work if you don’t combine exercise with a diet that cuts out processed foods and rubbish.
Actually, no exercise will work unless you do that, not just the Powerspin.
So, what exactly IS the Powerspin I hear you ask? It looks a lot like a steering wheel, in fact, my daughter has used it as a pretend steering wheel for the past week. Inside the circular exterior is a ball that you have to keep spinning as fast as you can. It may look easy in their instructional videos, but it isn’t.
I can go for a little bit with my right hand and with both hand gripping the outside for the abdominal workout, but my left hand is having none of it. That needs practise. It also offers viewers – such as your husband and child – plenty of entertainment. They were both screeching with laughter when I first started trying to get the hang of the Powerspin.
At the moment I’m busy following a brand new lifestyle diet plan (not a diet though, see what I mean?) and exercise routine so whenever I feel like burning off some energy or negative emotions I use the Powerspin. It’s perfect for doing something quick and active when you don’t have time to zip up for a run or a trip to the gym.
I can’t tell you it can replace weights or gym equipment, I don’t think it can. I also think using your bodyweight for home exercises is better than the Powerspin. However, it has found its niche here as a quick energy fix and I do like that.
The Powerspin costs £19.99 and the price makes me even more ambivalent if I am honest. That’s a month’s gym membership but it’s also going to last you a lot longer so it is entirely your call.
