Product Name: Gaiam Balance Ball Chair
Rating: 9

Description: This is a piece of office furniture that brings fitness and comfort together. It includes a removable balance bar, adjustable support bar, easy to move casters and even an air pump.

Review: I sit at my desk all day working on my computer. By the end of the day I can hardly move when it comes time to get out of my desk chair. After months of being stiff, hurting and having to take 5 minutes to get it together just to move I decided enough was enough. I went looking and found the perfect chair.

The Gaiam Balance Ball Chair is made so that you can have fitness and comfort all in one place and all day long.

The adjustable back support bar is my favorite part. Most of us have a tendency to slouch when sitting at a desk most of the day. This causes a lot of back problems. With the support bar I can easily adjust the chair to give my back support wherever the problem might be. I can move it up to support across my shoulder blades if I’ve been leaning over my desk. I can lower it to support my lower back if I have been slouching. It leaves me feeling comfortable and able to move even after a long day at the office.

The balance ball is great for exercising. I always hear about doing this exercise or that exercise while sitting at my desk. I have never tried any of them for various reasons. Because I work most of the time, I find very little time to exercise at all, so the balance ball is great! There’s even a desk guide that includes exercises you can do while sitting in your chair and working. No more feeling bad because there’s never enough time to exercise.

It also includes four casters. The great part about this is two of them are locking casters that attach to the back legs. If you have small children who will definitely want to climb on such a cool chair this aspect cannot be beat. I enjoy them because it keeps me from moving all over the room when I start to get antsy after a long afternoon.

This chair is easy to assemble and the air pump makes inflating the ball easy and fast. I love my balance ball chair and we do have a lot of fun showing it off to new people in the office. It is quite the conversation piece. Best of all I feel just as good when I leave my desk at the end of the day as I did when I first came to work. It’s the best investment I’ve made in a long time.

Criticism: The only downfall I see is the ball. When you first receive the chair you have to wait for the vinyl to warm up before you can inflate it. The bad part about this is the anticipation of getting it put together just you can try it out. After about 4 hours mine was ready to go and my patience held out to the end.
