It’s a versatile tool that can be used to improve endurance, stamina, flexibility, speed, power, agility, coordination, etc. Due to its soft shell, this ball can be caught and thrown at a high velocity. This provides much safer conditions than the most traditional medicine balls on the market.
The higher price point may be the only drawback, but you truly get what you pay for here. The difference is in the quality.
Good for all fitness levels and goals! These medicine balls come in a range of weights to match specific training levels and desired outcomes.

There’s no getting around it: conditioning sucks. These humbling, calorie-torching workouts push both the mind and body to new levels, while separating those who really want it from those who just say they do. Metabolic conditioning improves the efficiency of our energy systems by utilizing structured work and rest periods. These ratios are important in bringing about specific adaptations—aka getting you the results & body you desire.
Want to build strength or power to feel like a badass?
There’s a work-to-rest ratio for that.
Looking to get lean and build a pool ready body for summer?
There’s a work-to-rest ratio for that too.
One of the most versatile tools that you can plug into your conditioning workouts is the medicine ball. Said to have been a form of strength & conditioning for ancient gladiators, medicine balls are now a staple in the training programs of celebrities and pro athletes across the wellness space. Unlike most equipment, they allow you to build power, strength, and endurance in multiple planes of motion. Whether you are a beginner or a veteran athlete, they are a safe and fun way to bring about total body change. Though a game changing tool when used efficiently, all medicine balls are not created equal. The go-to medicine ball for me, my clients, and my athletes is the standard soft shelled Dynamax.
These med balls are designed for high intensity training that is both high speed and high impact. Whether you are a 350 lb Offensive Lineman or a 130 lb tech genius training for your first marathon, the Dynamax will power through your workout. These soft shelled, leather balls are versatile, highly durable and built to last. If you are looking for a medicine ball that wont break on you as you are powering through your work sets, then this one is it.
