Ergo Sit Giveaway! NOW CLOSED!

For approximately the last decade, I've had occasional back aches so I'm always looking for ways to help decrease those uncomfortable times. One of the things I've had on my wish list for quite a while now has been an Ergo Sit  from TheraGear for my chair. When I worked in an office that hadn't upgraded their chairs I brought in a stability ball to sit on. I wanted to first off be comfortable and secondly improve my posture/core muscles. I loved it. I used a ball at home too, but shortly after my daughter began to walk, she thought the big blue ball was just too much fun to leave alone. So I'm back to my chair.

The Ergo Sit is a small, ergonomical, inflated cushion that is simply placed on your chair. It works in the same way that a stability ball does. It will help you improve your posture and strengthen your back and abdominal muscles. I didn't know this before, but you can also use it on the floor to exercise your lower body. Another really great feature of the Ergo Sit is that it's rounded on one side and if you place the rounded side to the front of your chair it will help with active sitting. The opposite way is for stable sitting with thigh support. I originally had the round side to the back, but I didn't find that to be as comfortable to me as doing the active sitting. Of course I probably spend too much time sitting in my chair anyways.

I'm really enjoying my Ergo Sit and I feel like it is helping me. The Ergo Sit comes in 3 colors (blue, red, and silver) and is sold on TheraGear's website for $29.95. There's even a Kinder Ergo Sit for your kids. I decided on the blue Ergo Sit because it's my favorite color and I thought it might blend more in my black chair. My Ergo Sit arrived in a large box and was already fully inflated. A needle pump came with it for easy adjusting later.

The wonderful people at TheraGear generously agreed to give one Mommy 2 Monkeys reader their own blue ErgoSit! Go check out TheraGear and let me know what else interests you. I spent a little while perusing their site and they have a lot of great therapeutic and fitness products that I may be adding to my wish list. Even Monkey girl likes the Ergo Sit and yes, I know my chair is torn, but I can't bear to part with it just yet.
