Technogym Wellness Ball – Active Sitting

If you know someone who spends a lot of their time sitting, Technogym’s Wellness Ball, Active Sitting, might be a welcome present. As the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle become better known, the fitness accessory encourages active sitting as your back performs a series of micro-movements, turning time spent at your desk or in front of the television into an opportunity to exercise.
