This month, we are taking a closer look at the Zenergy Ball Chair by Safco. This certainly is not your average office chair, and I was happy to test it out to discover the many great things it has to offer and what type of people would enjoy using this chair on a day-to-day basis.
Firstly, it’s worth mentioning that there is some light assembly required for this chair. It didn’t take me too long to set it up, but I did need one person to help me hold the mesh covering as I inflated the ball seat. Overall, assembly was a painless process that you could easily accomplish at the office or at home.
The Zenergy ball chair also has an incredibly unique look. It’s has 4 chrome legs for stability and support and has a comfortable mesh cover that fits nicely over the exercise ball. The mesh is offered in three different colors; red, lime green and black. The chair is incredibly modern looking and has proven to be quite a conversation starter with people often remarking on its cool, one-of-a-kind look.
When I first sat on the Zenergy ball chair, I immediately noticed the freedom of movement. While I don’t feel restricted by my usual office chair, it is amazing how much more free you feel when sitting with one that does not have a back. My posture was, in fact, immediately better simply because it has to be with how the chair is designed. It doesn’t “encourage” good posture… it demands it, which is fantastic for someone like me who more often than not can be found slouching. It was also possible to slightly bounce while I worked, which was entertaining and provided a great way to move throughout the day, even if minimally, while keeping my core engaged.
I did, however, have to take my time when it came to transitioning to this Zenergy ball chair. I was simply not used to sitting in such a way. I was glad to have my other office chair on hand when I wanted to switch. It is important to note that the Zenergy Ball Chair is meant to be used for short periods of time. I recommend starting with just one hour a day and working your way up to more time. It’s also pretty convenient to switch chairs, as the Zenergy ball chair is not very large and can easily be tucked away under most desks.
All in all, the Zenergy Ball Chair is great for those who are looking to change up their sitting routine and want more movement throughout their day. It’s easy to stretch, turn or even bounce slightly while sitting on this chair, and it is a fun addition to supplement and change up how you work at the office.
