We all know how important it is to stay fit and healthy, but sometimes it’s just so hard to find the time to go to the gym or go for a run. That’s where fitness balls come in! They’re a great way to get a workout in without having to leave the house, and they’re also really fun to use. But before you can start using your fitness ball, you need to inflate it! Here’s a quick guide on how to do that.
What You’ll Need
To inflate your Embark fitness ball, you will need:
-A hand or foot pump
-An Embark fitness ball
Inflating Your Ball
It is super easy to inflate your Embark Fitness Ball, and only takes a few minutes! All you need is a pump (either a hand pump or an electric pump will do the trick) and you’re good to go.
To start, locate the small valve on the side of the ball. Make sure the valve is in the “open” position by unscrewing it clockwise. If the valve is in the “closed” position, screw it counterclockwise until it pops open.
Next, take your pump and place the nozzle over the opening of the valve. If you’re using a hand pump, start pumping until the ball is firm to the touch. If you’re using an electric pump, turn it on and hold it steady until the ball is fully inflated. Once the ball is firm, screw the valve shut clockwise to prevent air from escaping.
And that’s it! Inflating your Embark Fitness Ball is quick and easy, and now you’re ready to start working out!
Deflating Your Ball
To deflate your fitness ball, first remove the plug from the inflation valve. You may need a small tool, like a paperclip, to help you remove it. Once the plug is removed, press down on the ball to release the air. Once most of the air has been released, you can fold the ball up for storage.
Tips for Inflating/Deflating Your Ball
To inflate your Embark fitness ball, first remove the valve cap by unscrewing it counterclockwise. Next, insert the needle of your pump into the valve and pump until the ball reaches its full size. Once the ball is inflated, screw the valve cap back on clockwise to keep air from escaping.
To deflate your Embark fitness ball for storage, first remove the valve cap by unscrewing it counterclockwise. Next, insert the needle of your pump into the valve and press down firmly while you twist the pump handle clockwise. This will allow air to escape from the ball. Once the ball is deflated, screw the valve cap back on clockwise to keep air from re-entering.
Reasons Why Your Ball Might Not Inflate Properly
There are several reasons why your Embark fitness ball might not inflate properly. Here are some tips to help you get your ball inflated and ready to use:
-Check the valve to make sure it is open. The valve is located on the side of the ball, near the bottom.
-Make sure the pump is properly attached to the valve. The pump should have a black nozzle that fit snugly over the valve.
-If you are using an air compressor, check that the pressure is set to no more than 10 PSI. Overinflating the ball can cause it to burst.
-If you are still having trouble, contact customer service for assistance.
How to Store Your Ball
Before you can start using your Embark fitness ball, you need to inflate it. Here are a few tips on how to do that:
-To begin, cut off the top of the plastic bag that your ball came in.
-Next, find a needle or pin and insert it into the nozzle at the top of the ball.
-Now, blow into the nozzle until the ball is about three-quarters full.
-Once the ball is three-quarters full, remove the needle or pin from the nozzle and quickly place your mouth over the opening and blow to finish inflating the ball.
-Once your ball is fully inflated, replace the cap on the nozzle to prevent air from escaping.
How to Clean Your Ball
It’s important to keep your Embark fitness ball clean, both for health reasons and to keep it looking its best. Here’s how to clean your ball:
– First, deflate your ball.
– Next, using a soft cloth and mild soap, wipe down the surface of the ball.
– Once the ball is clean, dry it off with a second soft cloth.
– Finally, inflate your ball to the desired inflation level and enjoy!
If you are having trouble inflating your Embark Fitness Ball, here are a few things to check:
-Make sure the valve is open. The small black knob at the top of the valve should be in the open position (to the right of center).
-Check that the inflation needle is properly attached to the valve. The metal part of the needle should be inserted all the way into the valve.
-Tighten or loosen the black knob at the top of the valve to adjust the amount of air coming out. Turning the knob to the right will decrease the amount of air coming out, and turning it to the left will increase the amount of air coming out.
-Try inflating the ball with a different pump. If you’re using an electric pump, try a manual pump, and vice versa.
To conclude, it is evident that there are many benefits to using an inflatable fitness ball during your workout routine. By following the proper inflation instructions, you can customize the ball to fit your individual needs and ensure a safe and effective workout.
