Don’t let the blue ball with handles fool you.
Introducing the Kamagon. This ball of blue is full of water for a whole nutha level of resistance training. A water resistance workout without any splash! I like to think of it as kamikaze Kamagon and you’re going to want one!
This rubbery hard plastic and durable ball is a FITastic functional piece to add to into any FITnss repertoire!
Ever heard of Hydro Inertia? Me neither.
Hydro-Inertia™ is: The utilization of water to create an unstable resistance that increases core strength and stability during exercise. This is fancy terminology for balance or instability training with water. The majority of instability products currently on the market are primarily used as a base that you sit, stand or lay down on much like the BOSU!
By incorporating the Kamagon Ball into my workout routines, I’m mixing it up and creating instability throughout a full range of motion engaging the entire body! It’s all about the challenge y’all.
Here at Abercrombie and FITness I have to keep things fresh and new for my LIFErs (workout warriors for life). The Kamagon ball is a perfect FIT because it can be used to train and tone the entire body. It’s not the “answer” or the “only solution” but it’s a neat tool to add or use on a daily basis.

The Kamagon comes in two sizes, a 9 inch and 14 inch and a variety of fun colors. Pictured above is the 9 inch. To inflate, simple remove the nozzle and fill it up with desired amount of water. The side of the ball clearly shows markings to match 12 pounds of resistance or lower. What I like most about the Kamagon is its crazy versatility. If the ball is too heavy, I simply pour out water for a lighter level of resistance.
The Kamagon is awesome for static holds and light over head lunging and squatting. I chose the 9 inch because it’s not heavy enough to cause neck or back pain with over the head movements. It also works well with my other favorite pieces such as the BOSU ball
The Kamagon has endless functionality not to mention its travel worthy. Load it up for a road trip or keep it at the office! Take it outside or use it the house or gym.
