In general, if you are on the borderline of any size recommendation it's better to select the smaller size since exercising on the smaller diameter ball will enhance your overall balance and stability while working out on the ball.

Inflation Instructions and Care
Please read the Safety, Care And Use Instructions from Fitball that accompanies each ball.
Please do not open your package with a sharp object.
Remove the ball from the packaging and inspect for any damage that may
have occurred during shipping. It's normal for the ball to have slight
creases (fold marks) when first inflated. Make sure the ball is at room
temperature before proceeding.
Remove the plug from the ball. Do not use a sharp object to remove the
plug. A coin (quarter) can be used to raise the plug enough to pull it
out. The manufacturer includes a packet containing an extra plug. Bicycle pumps are designed to inflate low volume to a high pressure. Exercise balls have a large volume and
a low pressure. Pumps designed to inflate large items (like air mattresses)work best on
exercise balls. A free dual action hand pump is included with each order.
The balls are inflated according to size, not pressure. Never inflate the ball larger than the recommended diameter.
Each ball has the maximum diameter (width) printed on it in centimeters
and inches. To insure proper inflation, place the un-inflated ball
between two flat, upright surfaces, such as a wall and a box. Make sure
the box is the same distance from the wall as the ball's diameter.
Inflate the ball until it just touches the 2 surfaces.
- Check the area and clothing for sharp objects that may puncture the ball
- Do not use the ball outdoors
- Do not use the ball with heavy weights
- Do not stand on the ball
- Always inspect the ball for gouges and deep scratches before each use
- Replace the ball immediately if any wear, gouges or scratches are noticed
- Clean with a soft cloth and warm soapy water. Do not use harsh, abrasive chemicals
- Contact with any ink such as that found on newspapers and photocopies will permanently mark the ball
- Read the complete safety, care and use instructions accompanying each Fitball
The exercise ball is an unstable surface so inspect the area you're working out in for any possible objects that may cause injury if you should suddenly fall off the ball. If you're new to exercise or have not exercised in a while then start your program with a visit to your doctor for clearance. We always recommend taking advantage of working with a certified instructor or trainer with A.C.E. and/or ACSM certification.
