Learn about the Benefits of Active Sitting & Standing.



Get stability to go.

Our inflatable Balance Discs are portable, fit almost any chair and give you just enough instability to engage your core and back muscles while you sit. Go ahead, give it a wobble.


Put power in your stance.

Standing can only get better by having these underfoot. If you do a lot of static standing, now you can activate it, relieving joint pressure, stimulating blood flow and energizing your muscles.


Make the most of your moves.

Work your core, stretch your back or just sit. Our Balance Balls support you in gaining strength, improving your balance and even upping your cardio endurance. Meet the most versatile ball around.


Find your perfect balance ball using the chart below. When you sit on the ball, your feet should be flat on the floor with your knees and hips at right angles.

Studies show that the average office employee sits at a desk for ten hours a day, wading through emails, scrolling through company reports, scheduling meetings and unfortunately, eating lunch while staring at a computer screen. These same studies also show that many of these office employees are going home after a long day at the office only to sit in front of the TV or their home computer.

All this sitting is not good for the human body. Medical research has long warned against the risks of prolonged sitting, including heart disease, obesity, and depression, just to name a few. Couple these risks with the increased amount of time we’re spending on our beloved electronic devices and the risks for prolonged sitting are increasing exponentially.

Luckily, here at Gaiam have been working hard to counteract this sedentary trend. With our Active Sitting products, like the active sitting balance ball chair, we’re encouraging movement and strength, even while you’re seated. Whether you roll a fitness ball into your office, take an exercise ball into the break room, or sit on a Pilates ball while you binge-watch your favorite series, you’re working toward a firmer core, a stronger back, and better posture, one muscle micro-movement at a time.

Redefine your office seat with our supportive active sitting balance ball chairs, work your core with a posture-improving Balance Disc, or enhance your Active Sitting selection with one of our accessories. In addition to our Active Sitting products, we offer easy-to-follow workout DVDs that incorporate the Balance Ball, taking your at-home fitness to the next level.

Wherever you’re seated or standing, we’ve got a solution to bring better posture, more movement, and increased strength into your day with our active sitting and standing equipment.
