How to safely inflate your Swiss ball
We recommend using a pump, which is sold separately
Before inflating your ball, leave it at room temperature (20°C) for 24 hours
Inflate the ball slowly so it does not get damaged
Inflate the ball to 2/3 of its max size, at a temperature of between 20°C and 25°C max, then wait 2-3 hours
Finish inflating it to the desired size but do not go over the maximum size
Leave the ball for 24 hours before using it and check the size and adjust it if necessary
Inflating your Swiss ball to the right size
Inflate your ball
Remove the pump's nozzle from the hole
Plug the hole with your finger, with the stopper in your other hand
Sit on the ball and adjust the size, then put the stopper in the hole
Pilates - when sitting on the ball, your knees should be bent at 90° and should be the same height as your hips or slightly higher
