The Story of the Gravity Ball™

Find him on Instagram @thehealthmd

Dr. Mark Chavez, physician and life long fitness enthusiast invented the Gravity Ball™ during a point in his life when he had lost his own health. He had gained 60 lbs and spent long hours working in the emergency room. His bodybuilder father had recently undergone a devastating nerve surgery that caused him to loose his grip strength. Dr. Chavez was driven to find an all-in-one solution to resistance exercise that was effective, challenging, compact and versatile. Furthermore, he wanted to find a way for his father to be able to exercise again. The Gravity Ball was born! Today, Dr. Chavez helps others to gain access to the life changing benefits of consistent resistance exercise.
