Dive into the Details
Pump It Up
Zenergy’s called a “ball chair” because there’s literally an exercise-style ball in there – true story. To inflate it, just pop up and remove the base with a screwdriver, then use the included manual pump to add air. Snap the base back in place and start swiveling!
How Does Zenergy Measure Up?
Quick Note: When you sit down on Zenergy, the height will change and be lower since the ball will compress. Actual sitting height will vary.
Ever feel like you’re just going in circles? Well, with the Zenergy Swivel Ball Chair, the joke will be on the universe because that’s exactly what this thing is supposed to do. Just push left or right with your feet while seated and Zenergy will swivel around up to 360-degrees on its skid-resistant, rubber-molded base.
Active Seating for Educational Spaces
Zenergy Swivel also makes a great addition to classrooms, libraries and media centers where seating needs to be flexible to help accommodate the many different, wonderful ways in which people learn.

Unique way to work from homeI received this only a few days ago so I don’t have much experience with it to speak of but I will warn it had a strong chemical smell (the ball only) upon box opening, which has dissipated mostly now. Instructions are very clear and easy to assemble. It includes instructions for cleaning in case of a spill. As far as comfort, I did release some of the air out after the first filling, which made it more comfortable for sitting. I’m not sure how long it will last or I’ll want to use as my 8hr/day chair but my last office chair allowed me the worst posture and I don’t want that to continue. I did test this out earlier doing some crunches on it so that’s a nice bonus.
Great for ADHD teens and adultsWhile a little pricey, we are on our second one of these chairs at school. The first one only had to be replaced due to water damage in the school.It has perfect amount of wobble for kids whose bodies need to move for processing.My only recommendation is that if your kid is 5’2 or under, unscrew the legs and put the feet directly onto the bottom. There are holes for that. As is, with the legs it is almost too high. My son and I are only 5’2 and 5’3, so we kinda have to jump up onto it.
Absolutely Love My Chair!I absolutely love my chair! It makes working fun! It’s comfortable for long hours at the desk. And I love the swivel feature! So much better than my previous one that was just on legs. I highly recommend this chair!
Painful! Trying to get used to it!I really want this ball chair to work. It’s just the right size and looks nice at my desk. But the ball is stiff, tight, and uncomfortable. After sitting on it 4-5 hours a day for just one week, all I can say is: “This Hurts!” Hopefully, the surface will soften over time.

Very well made-great for adding core muscle work while working a sedentary job!I am a secretary and sit most of the day- this has made it possible to increase core work throughout day, as well as, strengthening legs with the bouncing part. The legs really make this “chair” so stable-the office floor is a vinyl floor and when sitting and standing you dont worry about it rolling out from under you. I cant say enough good things about it- would recommend AND would order again!
More comfy than a regular office chair and fun to sit onI purchased this ball stool for my home office as an alternative to a traditional office chair, and it’s a big improvement over my regular chair, if only because the bounciness of it reminds me to move more often. I do think it may engage core muscles more than a typical chair does, since the ball’s shape and give does force you to stabilize yourself a little, but I wouldn’t expect any miracles from sitting on it. I’m relatively athletic, though, and it may do more for someone with weaker core muscles to start with. I find myself getting uncomfortable less often using this chair compared to a typical chair, but I still have to stand up throughout the day to relieve the discomfort of sitting for long periods. It’s one of the more comfortable chairs I’ve used, though, and I’m not sure it’s possible to be fully comfortable sitting all day, even if you have a good chair.The chair’s very easy to assemble, and the hand pump that comes with the chair isn’t all that bad to use – it took me only a few minutes to inflate the ball fully. I didn’t have problems with small surface area/sweet spot like some others had, though I’m admittedly on the small side (5′ 3″), and it may be different for larger people. The chair seems to be a good height for a standard computer desk with a keyboard tray and allows your arms to be in an ergonomic position while typing and mousing. The lack of wheels seems like a smart choice, in case you lose your balance while sitting. The gliders on the feet move well over hardwood without being too slippery and haven’t scratched my floor. It’s true the mesh cover isn’t as taut and seamless on my chair as it is in the product photo, but it still looks sleek and modern.

Love itI wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about sitting on a ball all day, but after 5ish months of sitting at a desk on a folding chair, I really, really needed a change. But I didn’t want a plastic mat and it’s so hard to tell about desk chairs without sitting in them. But my kid loves his ball chair and I thought it was worth a try because it’s probably more healthy anyway. Turns out I like it quite a bit. It’s not as bouncy as a regular yoga ball, and it doesn’t roll around, but it does have a little bounce if you’re feeling restless (hello, 90-minute meetings, I’m talking about you). And yes, it feels much healthier. My back feels much better at the end of the day than it did sitting in a regular chair. My only complaint is that you’re supposed to be able to make it shorter by taking the extensions off the legs, but one of them is on so tight I’ve been unable to get it off. I’d have liked to try it shorter, because it feels just a bit too high to me. I wish there was an easy option to replace the legs with more sizes of legs.

Pretty good product. You might love it.I had been using exericise balls to sit on and I liked the way they would roll around. This does not of course. The reason I went to this chair is because my dogs would jump on the ball while I was sitting on it and eventually they poked a hole. The Zenergy chair has a mesh material to protect from that. The material is a bit on the coarse side so I have draped it with a towel like I used to do to the energy ball. The instructions give no clue on how much air to use to fill it up. I went too full at first and sitting on the chair became painful. I have been slowly draining the air trying to find the sweet spot. Have had it for a few weeks and still working towards that. The ball takes up only a little bit of space which is nice. The exercise balls had a much bigger footprint and will roll around. The chair is very solid and well made. I find that I don’t just sit in one spot like a chair but I do move around which is excellent for someone who sits all day for a living. All in all I am getting happier with it and I bought it from a friend who really likes it. I don’t think you will hate it and it is certainly much better than most if not all regular chairs.

It’s my new normalThe trick is to keep it inflated to an appropriate level (which usually requires a boost pump every 2-3 weeks – pump is included). When it’s fully inflated, you get more benefits and are more likely to sit up straight. When it gets flatter, you’re more likely to slump against your desk.At first, this chair required a mild effort from my hips and torso – now it doesn’t feel like I”m making an effort at all. I sit in it all day, and I forget that a chair back is normal.
No Slipcover, Not Removable, Otherwise AwesomeThis was extremely easy to assemble. It’s lower than I really, but positions my daughters legs at perfect 90 degrees (she’s 5’ 1”). I knocked a star off because for some bizarre reason you cannot remove the mesh cover to wash. Several spilled drinks and an accident later, it’s basically trash. I plan on reaching out to support. I can’t even find covers that can take the brunt of the spills.
