You probably sit for your job. Most of us do— around 86% of us, in fact. And there’s even a disease being named after it–the oh-so-original “sitting disease.”
That’s because sitting has been linked to cardiovascular disease and weight gain. And everyone who works in an office 9-to-5 will agree, it zaps your energy.
Scott Bahneman felt the same way. After taking an office job, he gained weight and noticed his health diminishing. So he created a chair that acts as part desk accessory and part workout equipment.
The SitTight allows you to work on your fitness in the same hours you’re working in Word and Excel. And the concept is pretty simple: Sitting in the chair, you balance on your center of gravity, which keeps your muscles engaged. Bahneman even says your mind gets a flex from having to stay aware and be mindful of your body’s stability.
