SPRI Xercise Ball – Professional Plus
Go to any Phoenix Valley gym, fitness center or training facility and you’ll find stability balls. The SPRI Xercise Balls are safe, heavy-duty and slow-deflate quality are durable enough to withstand diverse training applications in any club environment. Professional Plus (slow-deflate up to 350 lbs.) Xercise Balls were designed for heavy use in all workout environments. The SPRI Xercise Balls can be used as easily at home as they are in a professional gym. The permutations of the types of exercises, drills and workout routines you can incorporate with the Xercise Balls is almost endless.
Each ball comes with a plug and a small plastic pump adapter. The threaded end piece is the pump adapter that can attach to your bike pump or many other types of pumps or air compressors.
You can inflate the ball with a bicycle pump, a service station air pump or an electric air compressor. Trigger-like pumps would not require an attachment; just hold the airflow right up to the hole in the ball.
Before beginning the inflation process, mark on a door or wall the desired height of the inflated ball. As you begin to inflate the ball, keep checking it against your mark. When the ball is equal to your mark the ball is properly inflated. It is recommended for easier inflation that you fill the ball approximately to 50%, let the ball sit overnight, then complete the inflation process. Insert the plug into the hole of the ball and make sure head of the plug is flush; otherwise the ball will leak air. Do not over inflate the ball; over-inflation could cause the ball to burst. Please note: It is normal for the ball to have folds in it when first inflated.
