Our Other Medicine Balls

Our founders, Bruce Evans and Jim Cawley, created Dynamax in 1985 after unsuccessfully searching for a product that met their needs. They wanted a medicine ball that was durable enough for high-energy training, but soft enough to prevent injuries. All of our products fulfil that original brief, and a wide range of weights and ball sizes are now available.

From 2 - 10lb mini medicine balls to our standard medicine ball range and weighty Atlas models, we have products available that align perfectly with a vast array of fitness goals and workout preferences.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a medicine ball and a slam ball?

Our medicine balls, while extremely durable and designed to withstand impacts, are not intended for repeated heavy hits or ‘slams.’ Unlike a slam ball, they are not designed to be thrown hard at the ground from head height.

How heavy should my medicine ball be?

This depends on your fitness level and goals, but an 8lb weight is a good place to start if you already have a moderate level of fitness. If you’re just starting out on your training journey, we would recommend looking at one of our lighter mini medicine balls.

Are 8lb medicine balls heavy enough to be effective?

Yes, absolutely. Many professional athletes use these balls to improve their speed, agility and technique.
