I love this chair! It helps with my slouching and my leg-crossing, both of which I am always working to stop. The only downsides to this chair is that I have to re-inflate it every few months, and the breaks on the wheels are easily tapped, which is irritating, and one of them has already broken off (likely the fault of a student, but anyway). The final thing that I found problematic was that this particular chair was too short for my desk, and I had to purchase chair leg extenders from http://www.gaiam.com/product/classic-balance-ball-chair-leg-extenders/95-1561.html
Great product. If you have back pain and it hurts to do ab workouts (eg. Curls), this is really good for working your core. My stomach has gotten smaller and tighter. And when you aren't really in the mood for "a workout", this is a really easy way to workout. After you get used to the pain, it doesn't hurt the days after that and you really get a workout out of it without even realizing it. It alsoxandenwith a DVD where you can workout with the hula hoop with the instructor, which was nice since it didn't mention anything about having that DVD. I would definitely recommend this. When you assemble it correctly, it stays together. Just remember to alternate the colors
Balance board is great, packaging is awful. Box was squashed and partially open upon arrival, because of the tear in the box an edge of the balance board was scuffed up causing a small area on the edge to splinter. Sanded the edge and now it’s as it should have been on arrival.
This is my first balance ball chair and I love it! I admit, I was skeptical at first, but wanted to try it out anyway. Better than I expected. Makes me sit up straight with little effort and helps my core. Perfect height for my desk as well.
