Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent I have seen this chair for quite some time but was hesitant about ordering this because if I did not like it.....it's just a pain to return things. While at the optometrist I noticed that their gal had one and she let me try it out and told me how much she liked it. So i thought I'd go ahead and order it. I am so happy I did. I use this chair at work. it helps me sit up straight which is great since i'm at the computer/desk 10 hours every day! I do various stretches throughout the day while at my desk and during lunch I take the ball off and do more exercises. I've noticed my lower back and overall core strength improve over the past couple of weeks. If you are hesitant like I was....don't be. this is a great investment for your overall well being. An added bonus: sometimes it makes you feel like kid again...when I get a little bored or tired of sitting....I bounce for a while. lol April 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what we all needed I saw the classic balance ball chair at my doctors office and the girl at the front desk said she loves it. So when we  opened our new real estate office we knew we would need chairs, I mentioned these chairs to the women who work with us and they loved the idea of keep your core working while working. It's been four weeks and we all love this chair, if you start to get tired just bounce around and that get the blood flowing too. I still cross my leg, I know, I know, but I think it works my core even more, the ball it self can be as hard or soft as you want, it took one day to get the right firmness and so easy to put together. Since then mortgage agents have come in and they loved the thought of these chairs and have gone on line to get them for them selves, and they are thanking me for introducing them to the chairs. If your thinking of getting this chair, what are you waiting for? It moves easy (so be careful not to kick it out when you go to sit down, and no I haven't done that yet)  and yes there are locks for the wheels, you can lean back on the back rest, the chair is comfortable, and fun!! Enjoy your new core if you buy this!!  March 3, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by make sure it's inflated - fits both 5'4" and 5'11" I have owned my ball chair for 3 years now and am going to be purchasing another in a few days. I purchased my first from GAIAM and will purchase my next from them as well. I was reading the reviews bc I saw the chair had lower ratings than I expected and just want to address the themes I see. 1. YOU MUST INFLATE THE BALL AS MUCH AS DIRECTED (and I'm 5'4" for ref). It is super heavy duty and when I first inflated mine, I remember thinking  that I thought it was too much stress on the ball to inflate it as much as they said, but I did it anyway and it worked really well. I have normal height desks and again, I'm 5'4" so seriously, I know this ball works for shorter peeps. My  hubby is 5'11" and it works fine for him too. For whatever reasons we both end up with a nice 90 degree to our legs. He's light and I'm light so maybe that's the deal but in terms of posture and ergonomics I can't see why, if the directions are truly followed, that you would get an ill fitting chair. 2. CASTORS: we haven't had any problems with the castors (I wheel about a bunch). They are cheaper than I would have preferred - but again, I wheel around a bunch. Next chair I'll probably add fancier castors for better rolling (they do however work fine). 3. ERGONOMICS: I have back problems (old injury of multiple vertebral fractures, a broken coccyx, and 2 bulging discs). I do still have to remind myself to sit up actively, but that's because I do slouch - and this chair makes it harder but not impossible . This chair, however, has seriously reduced my back pain. You can imagine that my injuries kinda suck and so I just want to say that while  the chair isn't perfect, it's darn close (and for the price, did you really think it'd be totally perfect! it's cheap! it's a great price, come on!) 4. SO THANK YOU! Thank you guys for making/ offering this chair!  December 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Office Chair I bought two chairs for the office. The office staff loves them, great for the back and the abs. November 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Exceeded my expectations I was desperately looking for a solution to the problem of having a numb rear end and upper thighs by the end of every work day.  On a whim, I convinced my boss to let me try out this chair...I was not expecting to like it.  But, surprise, I love it!  It's comfortable and the adjustment period just took about a day.  After the second day of using the chair, I went home feeling energized and refreshed and no more numbness from  being confined to an office chair all day.  Try it....you'll probably be surprised like I was.

I thought I read somewhere that you shouldn't sit on a ball chair all day every day, but rather you should swap it out with a regular chair every once in a while (for reference, I'd be sitting on it for about 8 hours/day, 5 days a week). Is this true?

Answer: 
There is no recommended time limit for the ball chair. It will vary for each person. Some people do prefer to switch back and forth, others prefer to use the ball all day. Whatever feels best to you!

I have the classic balance ball chair. I am only 5' 3" tall and this model is at least 4" too low as a desk chair. There is no way the ball is 27" off the floor. The ball is fully inflated too. Any suggestions?

Answer: 
This ball chair is designed to be used comfortably as an office chair. If you find that the seat is too low, there may not be enough air in the ball. Often times due to the strong PVC material of the ball, it will not be at full capacity with the first inflation. Continue to add air to your ball until the seat height feels comfortable.

Ball is deflating

I've had the chair for over a year and the ball is deflating. I have tried to fill it with air and it won't accept it. Do I need to purchase a new ball?

Answer: 
Balance balls will stretch overtime and will occasionally need to be re-inflated. If you find that your ball however is not holding air day to day, it may be time for a replacement. Please contact us at 800-254-8464 and we are happy to further assist!

My purple ball for my classic balance ball chair has started losing air regularly and needs to be replaced, but I do not see a purple color choice available and really love that color.

The only thing I don't like about this chair is how hard the backrest is.  Is there a cover available?
