Gaiam Guys and Gals Bouncing Around in Cubicle Land

Everett on Balance Ball [1]Being the original Balance Ball [2] people, Gaiam employees tend to do a little more bouncing during the day than people at most companies. A picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s go on a quick walk around our department …

To the right is me, Everett. I make sure search engines like the one on my shirt bring you to Gaiam when you search for terms like Balance Ball or fitness ball or stability ball.

Nicole on Balance Ball [3]There’s Nicole! She works on Gaiam’s subscription websites like Gaiam Yoga Studio [4]. She likes zucchini and she’s a composting expert.

Norbert on Balance Ball [5]Norbert is one of our developers. He’s the guy I go to when I need some help with PHP or CSS.

Rick on Balance Ball [6]Rick is my SEO intern. As they’d say in Boston, he’s Wiked Smaht, which explains how he snagged our one novelty megaball. I wish I could hire him full time but I’d be scared he’d take my job in a few years. And he has good taste in music.

[7]Fernanda on Balance Ball [8]We’re not the only ones to use Balance Balls around the office – some of our international friends do too! Based in Mexico, Fernanda is helping develop our Gaiam brand down in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean……as you can see, she really enjoys sitting on her Balance Ball!


Do you sit on a Balance Ball [2]? If so, upload your pictures to a photo site like Flickr [10] and share them with us in the comments below! If not, what are you waiting for? Spending part of your day on a Balance Ball is good for your back if, like us, you do a lot of sitting. They’re also fun and, best of all, you’ll look super cool bouncing while you work. ;-)
