Classic Balance Ball Chair reviewThe Classic Balance Ball Chair is an at-home or at-work fitness product from Gaiam. As the name suggests, it is a chair that features a balance ball as the seat. Many people who own this product use it instead of a standard desk/office chair. This product doubles as fitness equipment and an ergonomic desk chair that helps to prevent back and other problems that can develop from sitting for long periods of time.

The main goal of the Balance Ball Chair design is to provide ergonomic support for a healthier and stronger back and spinal alignment. In fact, Gaiam developed the product with the help of a chiropractor.

That said, the chair also comes with 15 beneficial exercises users can perform that can help them build strength in their core. The nearly two foot tall chair consists of a removable standard sized balance ball (approximately 52 cm or roughly 20 inches) and four rolling casters that can be locked when the user does not want the chair to move. The chair is also equipped with a support bar that can be adjusted to support an individual’s needs and is designed to stabilize the ball.

More specifically, at the time this review was written, the features of the Classic Balance Ball Chair include:

• A charcoal anti-burst, 52 cm Balance Ball
• Lightweight and stable base made from molded PVC
• Rolling and lockable caster wheels
• Simple one-tool assembly
• The chair dimensions are 22”W x 31”H x22”D
• It weighs 13 pounds

Although this product has received plenty of positive feedback from consumers, especially in regard to significant back improvements, one of the most common complaints is that the chair does not adjust easily to accommodate different sizes. However, the chair can be made taller with leg extenders that have been designed for the equipment. The chair was made for individuals who are between 5’ and 5’11 tall and who weigh up to 300 pounds.

Overall, even though this fitness product is only suitable for people within a limited height range, it is affordable and offers users both health and fitness benefits. It may be something you might consider owning if you sit for long hours and meet the specified requirements. At the time this review was written, the Classic Balance Ball Chair is available in different colors and can be purchased online at varying prices, typically starting from $64 and up.
