I've absolutely hated training with workout gloves in the past because they tend to be more heavy and masculine. I'm a big fan of the GoFit Pearl Tac Gloves - they actually breathe and have lightweight durability.

Door Anchor

(Instructions)

My Core Stability Disk will not inflate.

Inflating the Core Disk

If the disk does not have a hole in it and it does not seem to inflate, the valve may be blocked on the inside by a thin layer of vinyl. Insert the inflation needle while pulling the top of the stability disk toward you . Push the needle with significant force to break through the inner lining. You may not feel an immediate release when it breaks as the vinyl will still stick to the needle and limit its movement. Try inflation again. If you still have issues, contact GoFit Customer Service for further assistance.
