Rated 1 out of 5 by Dragonia Not for me & not for short people
I bought this chair to replace my Classic Balance Ball Chair that I had for 5 years. I can't say enough positive things about the original. But after the years the ball sprung a leak and the chairs plastic was cracking around the front metal support bar. Now about the new custom fit chair. I waited a few days to test the chair before I decided to write this review. First off, I am 5'4 and I also have a short inseam and I have the wheels adjusted all the way to the lowest setting and I still can not reach my feet to the floor properly. 2nd the wheels lock too easily and I find myself bumping them. 3rd I feel unstable when I sit on this ball chair. 4th this new ball is squeaky! My classic ball doesn't squeak at all. Now I'm stuck with a chair I really don't like and I do not want to pay more money to return it.

I love that the chair adjusts height but the wheel lock is a terrible design. I'm constantly locking them by accident.

I love the Gaiam Balance Ball Chairs. I have been using them for about 4 years now and was very excited to upgrade to the adjustable legs! My only qualm is that the new chair came with a smaller balance ball and for me it defeated the purpose (I needed the extra height for my non-adjustable desk). So , i just put the old Balance ball (that is much larger) from my previous Chair on my new chair, problem solved!

Rated 5 out of 5 by NakkySweet So glad I bought this!
I had back surgery in my teens, and lately the hardware has been giving me major problems. It's been difficult to sit at my desk and I was having severe lower back pain every day. The first week I had the chair it took some adjusting to, and I still had pain, but now a month in I never have pain while sitting at my desk-- and I work 10 hour days! It's so worth it. The adjustable legs help a lot and the base makes sure I'm not falling over at my desk. It's super lightweight so I can even carry it to our meeting rooms! Love it-- if you have back pain and you're reading this, just push the purchase button.

I am currently on hold with Gaiam right now to find a solution to what seems to be a slow leak from the ball. I need to fill it at least once a week, or the ball slips through the ring! Disappointing, and it seems that others have this issue, too.
