One easy way to measure the “size” of a ball is how far it is from side to side. Your tennis ball example is a good one: a typical tennis ball is about 2.5 inches form side to side. And one way to measure that size is to place the ball on a table in the sunlight when the sun is nearly overhead — close to noon.

What if my exercise ball is too big?

A ball that’s too small compromises the position of your hips and pelvis when you sit on it, whereas a ball that’s too large doesn’t allow your feet to touch the ground, making it unstable. Achieving a good balance between a ball that’s too large or a ball that’s too small provides you with the best workout.

The balls come with an installed plug and an adapter that attaches to most bike pumps.
