Norwalk, CT, January 24, 2013 – Norwalk executive, entrepreneur, and triathlete, Ben Peck has created a new product that allows you shape up by sitting down.
Designed for anyone who is interested in finding new ways to improve their physical fitness, Peck's new product, called PilaSit, engages the body's core muscles by introducing instability while seated. "I developed severe back pain and eventually had surgery for a herniated disc. Working out, building core muscle strength and staying in shape was the only way to avoid more back problems in the future. I began working out and got involved in triathlon. I wanted a way to continue my active lifestyle while in the office. I needed an active ‘work-style’, so I designed PilaSit.” explains Peck.
PilaSit’s patent pending design is based on a custom-designed fitness ball with innovative features to help it become a seamless part of your day. A high quality and fashionable fabric cover makes it attractive for home or office use and a unique system keeps the ball from rolling away without the use of a frame or stand.
“Instead of relying on a traditional chair to provide support for the arms, back and legs,” Peck explains. "PilaSit engages the body’s core muscles to maintain balance. It helps you sit actively. Over time, core muscles strengthen and physical fitness improves. PilaSit makes it easy to lead an active work-style, encouraging a core muscle workout doing something you do every day."
“PilaSit was created because the right product didn't exist. The choices were an expensive chair/fitness ball combination, or a standard yoga ball that rolled away and looked odd in a corporate office setting.”
PilaSit is available in three height-based sizes in black, dark brown, navy blue, and red for $45 at www.pilasit.com. It includes a 90 day 100% satisfaction guarantee.
