balance ball chair: your answer to fitness and exercise
Posted Mar 03 2009 2:01pm
I had another great Pilates fitness session again this morning. After six Pilates fitness sessions, I can confidently say that Pilates is a wonderful exercise workout that I can grow old with.
Lately, I have been getting some back discomforts from long hours of sitting in front of the computer. After searching around in some organic health and natural health sites, I came across a BalanceBall® Chair which answered my desperate call for a combination of fitness and comfort.
According to the product info, the balance ball chair combines exercise and fitness with comfort and ergonomic back support and what I love about it is, it is affordable! Developed by chiropractic pioneer Dr. Randy Weinzoff and Gaiam, this patented BalanceBall® Chair (with Pump) is an effective tool for strengthening core muscles and improving spinal alignment. If you have experienced Pilates fitness, you will enter how important it is to strengthen those core muscles. Check out the BalanceBall Chair for your posture health!
Let’s hear what some real Balanceball Chair users have to say about this product:
Very comfy! Date: January 24, 2009 Pros: great pool blue color
“Got this to help with my posture while sitting at the computer all day–love it!! Helps tilt your pelvis so your spine stacks over the pelvis instead of all slumpy. I feel more alert when sitting up straight, and can lift my collarbones and move shoulders back and feel even better!
I too had the wheel lock issue and we just put the locking wheels on the rear instead of right by where you tend to kick the front ones–try it!!”
when you are stuck sitting - this is the chair! Date: December 30, 2008 Pros: improves balance Cons: occassional wheel lock issues
“I have had a ball chair for the last 3 years at work and it is great! I am am outdoorsy person and hate to sit for hours on end but when I have to I will only use this chair. It forces you to sit up straight and really improves your balance.”
