At just 21" wide by 22" deep, the Office Fitness Exercise Ball Chair takes up no more space than a conventional desk chair, and yet it's more than just something to sit on, enabling you to enjoy micro-workouts throughout the day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product! 12 Aug 2011
By Becky
I ordered this after a month or so of using a normal pilates ball to sit on at my desk. It is comfortable and the wheels are robust & reliable; it is good to have the ability to move around. The height is just right for a standard office desk.
I would definitely recommend people switching to these from standard office chairs. It does take a bit of getting used to and you will need practice if your core strength isn't so good but stick with it, the end results are fab!
Great product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent desk chair. 19 Aug 2011
I was looking for a desk ball chair after using one at my doctor's office, and this one fit the bill.

Cheaper than most of the others I saw, it's a very good quality ball and base. It was also easy to assemble, as the chair came with instructions and an air pump. It also came with a list of exercises to do with the chair, which is a nice addition. It's great for active sitting and toning up core muscles while improving posture.

Plus, I've had a lot of fun bouncing up and down on it. :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Ball chair 13 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase
Wonderfully comfy 'office' chair, consisting of an exercise ball (which can be used as such) plus a stand designed to raise you to an appropriate height for working at a desk. The theory is that sitting still for long periods is very bad for your back, but sitting on an exercise ball is much healthier because you are constantly wiggling about and exercising the muscles which support your spine. It seems to work.

Visitors - after the first "what's THAT?" reaction - want to try it out, and in every case then decline my offer of a more conventional chair!

There are two wire brackets which can be fitted, presumably to hold the ball more firmly in place. I don't bother with these as I find the ball stays in place anyway. It also has castors which can be individually locked. I like the castors free, and I find it a bit irritating that every time I sit down I find them locked. I'm not sure whether someone is doing this deliberately or whether the locking catches just get kicked on very easily by accident, so I would prefer the castors NOT to be lockable.

That leads me to the main drawback of the chair, which is the difficulty of keeping the kids off it - it's such fun scooting around and bouncing on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great replacement for your office chair 31 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
I'm using one for more than a month and very happy with it. I sit on it for about 10 hours a day in the office most days.

It's nice to be able to bounce on it (lots of fun) and it also helps the muscle tone.

Keep in mind, just sitting on the ball doesn't do much for your abs, but adds constant pressure to the upper leg muscle, which is not such a good idea for prolonged periods of time unless you're very fit. So start with a few hours per day and see how it goes for you.

Although I spend most of my working day on this ball-chair, I make exceptions on the training days when I only spend a few hours on it.

4.0 out of 5 stars great for backaches 23 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
I brought this gym ball chair since I work from home alot and my normal office chair was causing me to have backaches all the time. I read that the gym ball chair is suppose to help and after reading the reviews, I thought I'd give it a go.
It's been a week since I've had the chair and the backaches seem to have reduced alot to nearly nothing. Since I've used the gym ball before I got used to using it as a chair pretty quick.

the product itself is easy to assemble and the ball is pretty quick to pump up as they provide a good quality pump. Just remember that you can pump it more as the ball will stretch. I made the mistake thinking the ball was too small for the chair frame but I hadn't pumped it enough. Office Furniture advise to pump it a bit more over the first few days to give the ball time to adjust. I had a few issues with the nut bolts for the metal frame but office furniture helped me solve this issue.
The feet of the chair comes with 4 wheels that can be set to move or be stable.

As for the customer service from office furniture, they provide a brilliant after service. They always replied to my messages within 1 day and helped to solve all the issues I had. I would highly recommend purchasing from office furniture. I brought a few other items from them and they even sent me pdf versions of the exercises you could do.

I would recommend getting a cover for the ball as its more comfortable to sit on especially in the hot summer. I like the different patterns you can get. I purchased the zebra one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for work! 7 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
I somehow managed to hurt my back so it was suggested that I try this Office Fitness Exercise Ball Chair. It wasn't cheap but it certainly helped with the discomfort on a day to day basis so it could be considered value for money. In addition, the delivery was extremely quick and customer services were excellent when I contacted them with a query.

No instructions are actually needed as the "build" (if it can even be called that) is so simple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Put the Tigger back in your life 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase
I bought this to use at a desk at home and just love it. Initially the ball does seem much too small, but it really does grow before your eyes to fit the chair perfectly. It's great for posture and the bouncing is fun too. Even my teenager daughter has emerged from her bedroom to sit at my desk - her A Level revision has been taken to a whole new level thanks to this chair!
