Customer reviewsGood product. Needs better set up instructions.
I got this exercise ball to use as a chair at my desk at work. Once I figured out how to get it properly inflated, it was great. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because the instructions on how to properly inflate it weren t explanatory enough. You really need to make sure to inflate it 80 then let it sit for 24 hours. Then you deflate it 50 and then re-inflate. To know if it s filled enough try this trick I found on YouTube the ball is supposed to be 65cm in diameter which is 25.6 inches. Take a tape measure and measure from a wall out 25.6 inches and then place the box it came in at the 25.6 inch mark from the wall. When you inflate the ball fully after letting it sit 80 inflated for 24 hours, when the ball is fully inflated it will touch both the wall and the box so you know it s fully inflated. There is an example of this in the pics with this review.
