Why Use a Stability Ball Instead of an Office Chair?
The Balance Ball Chair was designed for people who want to improve their posture, relieve back pain and build a stronger core – all while sitting down. I think of it as very efficient multi-tasking.
This chair (designed around a fitness ball concept) is not only healthy, but it is comfortable as well. Just as you’d expect, it has a springy, yet firm feel that never loses its cushioning.
In addition, you can remove the ball from the chair frame and use it for workout routines and strength-building exercises. This multi-functional chair solves a lot of problems, and it is very affordable. Not to mention, it lasts a long time, which ends up saving you more money.
You can even customize the look of your chair by choosing from a
variety of different colors.
The following video explains the different features of the Gaiam Balance Ball Chair and how to use it. It also demonstrates a few different exercises and stretches you can do either sitting at your desk or without the chair.

Note: Fitness balls typically take a few days to stretch out and reach their optimal size. Therefore, you want to check the inflation during the first several days of use. While it may feel like the ball has lost air, it more likely that it has stretched out and needs more air to reach its ideal inflation point.
