The Best 5 Yoga Ball Chairs

1. The Gaiam Original Balance Chair

Gaiam Original

Another great product from Gaiam, the original balance chair was the first of its kind to add the rolling base, converting a simple piece of exercise equipment into a fully functioning ergonomic chair. This product is probably the best value you can find for your dollar.  The price is unbeatable. Developed in coordination with famous chiropractor Dr. R. Weinzoff, Gaiam got it right the first time. This product has been happily by more people than any other, and the testimonials show it.

With over 1000 reviews, it holds a 4.2 out of 5 stars on Amazon, which is pretty incredible compared to the average product rating there. The yoga ball comes in a variety of different colors, allowing you to customize according to your style. You’ll also find a handy fitness manual for some at-desk workout ideas for strenghening your core.  Pump is included.  Free shipping available.

marcyEarlier this year I had to take three weeks off work due to a automobile accident, which resulted in bulging discs between 4 of my vertebrae. My cousin, who is a yoga teacher, recommended I try out this product.  Very quickly I started noticing that I could sit for long periods of time without feeling fatigue in my core.  The doctors told me it would take months to get back to work… I was back in 4 weeks.  I highly recommend the Gaiam Custom Fit. – Marcy Kreuger, NY

2. The Isokinetics

The Isokinetics

If you’re looking for style, the Isokinetics is the product for you. Its sleek, brushed steel frame makes a welcome addition to an office setting. This product is a favorite for those that work in an office and want switch over to an exercise-ball chair, but want to keep their work area looking professional.

Built very similarly to the top rated Gaiam Custom Fit, you’ll find the adjustable lumbar support and height variable wheeled base accommodating for each person’s size.

3. The Gaiam Custom Fit

Gaiam Custom Fit

Gaiam is a well-known and respected producer of yoga products, including our favorite Gaiam Custom Fit.  This excellent product features everything you could ever ask for. The adjustable steel base can be raised or lowered so you can find your optimal height. The rolling caster wheels allow you to stay mobile at your desk, a key factor in spinal health. The Custom Fit also features a padded lumbar back support (a very nice feature) for a little extra stability and support.

An inflating pump is included.  It also comes with a fitness DvD with suggestions for exercises that you can perform with a removable yogaball. Both first time users, and experienced users, all love this product and its our favorite here at Modeets. It simply stands ahead of the rest.  Free shipping included.

4. Sivan Adjustable Back Balance Chair

 Sivan Adjustable

The Sivian is a favorite for new comers, as its the most similar to a traditional seating arrangement. You’ll notice that it has many of the same features as your typical seat.  The back rest is adopted directly from your everyday run-of-the-mill task chair and can be adjusted for both height and depth, letting you find the correct support for your core.

The four-wheeled base features two lockable wheels, helping you to stay in place when needed. Comes with a pump and free shipping is available.

5. The Cando Adjustable with Arm Rests

Cando Adjustable

Still attached to your arm rests?  Then check out the Cando Adjustable. It features your typical arm rests, which are highly recommended if you suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome.  In fact we recommend this product especially if your ergonomic and work-related issues are related to arm and wrist pain, rather than the typical backaches.

However, this product is very similar to a typical office seat, but in our opinion, maybe too similar if lower back pain is your focus. The back rest is slightly too high, so your body isn’t forced to develop its own posture, as with the rest of the products.  Nonetheless, you’ll still experience the comfort of the exercise ball seat and its a great introductory product.  Free shipping is no longer offered on this product.
