Anyone know if the Argos gym balls have to be pumped up.. or do you buy them pre-pumped? Only €6.99 so want to pick one up at lunch time

Hi, yes they do need pumping up, I bought one and had no pump for it. Had to buy one, its been a pain in the bum trying to get it pumped up!

I've had a pilates one for a while now and the pump was crappy....but I bought another one in Lifestyle Sports with a decent pump just after Xmas - think it was about €16 or so but worth it cause they are useless without a decent pump.

I bought mine in Argos yesterday, it came with a crappy looking pump. Luckily my hubbie has a compressor so he blew it up really firm in a flash!
