World's 1st Workout Device & Guide In One: Coreculum Ball

$42,515

Featured in...

Workout equipment is often expensive, hard to store, and confusing to use. The Coreculum Core Ball Complete is the solution to this problem. It is a revolutionized medicine ball transformed into a full-body workout device and workout guide that tells you exactly how to get a great workout in 30 mins or less.

  TONE + STRENGTHEN + BUILD LEAN MUSCLE + FIRM THE CORE

Dr. Jim Rickards, M.D. is the founder of the Core Ball Complete. He created the Core Ball in response to the need of combining an effective workout at home with one affordable, well-designed piece of equipment.

The Core Ball Complete

A competitive athlete or beginner can pick up the Core Ball for the first time and get a great workout without an expensive trainer, instructional classes or a smart phone in your hand.

Here's how the Core Ball works...

1. Grab a 12-inch ball at 6, 8, or 10 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 and get a full workout in 30 mins or less. 

That's it! The Core Ball is compact, easy to use, and affordable. It is a complete curriculum for the body in the convenience of your own home or workout space.

The Rewards

The Workouts

Dr. Rickards partnered with fitness and design industry experts to determine the ideal movements and infographics for a competitive athlete or beginner to work out effectively with the Core Ball. 

The Core Ball has 16 workout infographics on it with the goal of strengthening and toning to create lean muscle mass. Each infographic relates to a particular body part: arms, legs, back and core. 

On the final product, each infographic is grouped by color based on the body part it works. For example, the orange movements work the core as shown below.

Completing a full-body workout will take 30 to 40 minutes. This can be shortened if only a specific body part, such as the legs, is exercised. The workouts can also be broken up. 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.

 The Founder

I've spent the last 4 years designing the Core Ball to create the most effective, compact, and affordable exercise equipment. 

I've always wanted to help people live better, healthier, stronger lives. This was the main reason I became a physician and practice as a radiologist. Coreculum's mission is to help people see how easy fitness can be and how healthy they can become. 

Health and wellness are the keys to an incredible life. We’re all busy and our minds are more distracted than ever. Knowing how to workout should be easy. - Dr. Jim Rickards, M.D.

Production

The Core Ball Complete is nearly a finished product. The Core Balls shown on this page and in the videos were built on our production line. We’re currently ramping up at our factory and are ready to meet the estimated delivery times.

Here is the design of the final version of the Core Ball Complete reflecting the color coding of the grouped body part movements on the ball. 

The Core Ball Complete is our first product. In the future, we plan to offer yoga mats, balance balls and more that all have smart curriculum based workouts integrated into their design.

Pledge today to be a part of revolutionizing fitness equipment. It’s time for a smarter workout…with Coreculum!

Risks and challenges

We’ve done our very best to forecast demand and create a solid production plan. We’ve learned a lot from the past four years, but sometimes forecasts don’t always hit the mark. Should we miss projections, we’ll let you know why and make it right as quickly as possible.

Supply Chain Risk

We’ve built a very capable team who have worked for the past 4 years on our product. However, delays and unexpected shortages can occur. If this happens, we’ll be sure to keep you informed and work to quickly solve the problem.
