So far I've only sat on it and it's awesome (ordered a stand-up desk, yet to arrive). I can feel it strengthening my back and abdomen and it reminds me to sit up straight with my feet flat on the floor which I constantly fail to do. Also, it helps to improve my ergonomic set up, I am seated higher in my chair, which helps my arms reach my keyboard at the right angle and my feet can be placed flat on the floor. Pumping it up wasn't an issue...not sure why others are having a problem. Maybe you are trying to pump it up to an uneccessary amount? It's supposed to be slightly deflated.
Update- Standing is good too, but need to increase my core strength to stand for long periods. But it helps to remind me to stand up straight. Also, I received a workouf PDF from the seller, so be sure to check your Amazon messages for it.
I loved this! It comes exactly the way it is described, it inflates really well, the pump works very well too. I have worked while sitting on it and it dramatically improves my posture (although my desk chair doesn't go down enough so that I don't feel too tall), but it works very well. I have not done a full workout on it yet, but wow! You step on it and it immediately makes your whole body go into stabilization mode, which I love! Great product!
Just like the product my Physical Therapist Gym uses. Very happy with quality, color choices. I seem to remember that exercises were to be available. Was that on line or to be on paper with the product. In any case, would like to know what the supplier has to say. Thanks, Todd
a real quality piece, very substantial. I am pleasantly surprised that a good hand pump was provided with, not one, but two needles. And, they store in the pump! Someone was really thinking of the customer when they designed this product. Right now, I'm using it- partially deflated- as a cushion on my chair and it feels great.
Only getting 4 stars due to the pump. Yes it came with 2 needles but both were damaged. The 1st one wont thread into pump and 2nd one was bent. Sadly had to buy a pump. Other than that the cushion is nice and I forgot how hard it is to balance!. Love it except for the pump.
