Secrets of Success

Use A Stability Ball Instead Of A Chair



I replaced my office chair at home with a stability ball which forces me to sit "actively" and I also find that if music is playing I will bounce along with it so it may not burn many calories but it's better than sitting static in a chair.

More Information:

All you need is a stability ball which is usually under $20 (cheaper than office chairs).

    I did this about two weeks ago and have found that some days even my thighs are a bit sore because they're getting a workout as I'm bouncing on the ball! Works for me!!! - by WANDAC2013
  • I do this also. My back is less likely to hurt and it's fun! - by MYOWNHERO
