by Chels088 Neat customizable chair
It took me about 15 minutes to put this thing together. The majority of the time was spent pumping up the ball and looking for a rubber mallet. The mallet was useful in getting the back bar all the way down before securing it with the hardware provided since it was a tight fit.
I'm 5' exactly, and I easily adjusted the wheels so that my feet actually touched the ground. Unlike the previous reviewer, I don't find it troublesome that my back doesn't rest against the support bar during normal sitting; perhaps that's only because I didn't expect it to in the first place.
The desktop guide is very useful for figuring out precisely how/where to sit on the ball. This is my first experience with any of these balance balls, and I was grateful that the info was right near the front. It also states that the support bar (backrest) is for stability during exercises ONLY.
There are some great stretches in the guide as well. I haven't used the workout DVD yet, but I'm very pleased overall with my purchase!

I really like my new chair, I have had it for one month now and while I don't necessarily feel my core get's a workout, the chair is a constant reminder to sit up straight and engage my core. The downside is that the way the 'brakes' are positioned on the 5 legs, through the cours of the day my feet must hit them and at some point my chair resists movement at which point I need to ensure all brake levers are flipped to the 'up position'.

I thought I was getting a desk chair. I am 5'7" and it is way too low for any normal adult sized desk. The ball often falls through to the floor when sitting down, even when it is fully inflated. Either the ball needs to be bigger, or the ring smaller. It would also be good it the legs were more adjustable in the higher direction. When I let go of the idea of using it at a desk and put it out on the patio, it is quite fun to sit on. Outside in the sun, the ball didn't fall through--until the weather cooled down. All in all I am disappointed.

I have had my custom fit balance ball chair for a few weeks now, and my back feels great! I bought this chair for my home office. It is very easy to put together. The legs of the chair have a few different notches for height adjustment. The ball is very comfortable, and I find I have less pain throughout the day. Thank you for making such a helpful product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jackie11 Great product - great price
Being a short individual - I researched a lot of options before purchasing the Custom Fit Balance Chair. I love my chair! I sit at the right height and the wheels allow me to move freely in my office. I really don't utilize the back, however, its still fairly new and I haven't had a long phone conference yet! I highly recommend this product.
