My friend has the Chair and enjoys it. I just sit on the ball at my desk, I do have to have a conciouse effort to hold my core tight while sitting on it and keep my feet flat.
When I get lazy i prop it against my heels and slouch over with out realizing it sometimes. But ultimately I like having it to switch on and off between my regular work chair.

Did you notice any difference in your body? I know it helps posture and the core, but will I look any different? Just wondering if I splurge will I see results or only feel them?
Right now I am thinking that I need to buy the chair! But I am showing some restraint to think about it.

Then if you like it you can do the whole chair thing for full time.
It def helped to increase my core strength in my yoga postures. So I am sure it increased the muscle tone, I just have to much flub to see it. LOL.

Anyway, cool, i didn't know they wre the cheap! I think I will buy a ball and test it out. The chair was like $80, so $9 is a steal to see if I can do it.

My physio got me into using the fit ball for my chronic back prob. She said just sitting on the ball will help develop my core muscles to strengthen and support my back. The pain also moves into my hips and I have felt an improvement since starting my ball exercises. Some of the exercises are just sitting on it so im pretty sure that with prolonged use as a chair it will make a difference, not sure if its a difference you will see rather than just feel.
Maybe you could get the ball for now and use it for some extra exercises in your lunch break, im assuming you couldn't do this with the chair!
