One of Natural Fitness's founding principles is to tread lightly on the earth. They aim to offset the environmental impact that results from the manufacturing and distribution of their products. To achieve this, the company created their Zero Impact Program (ZIP). While Natural Fitness is always looking for new and creative ways to offset their eco-footprint, here¡¯s is what the company is currently doing:



  • Plant-A-Tree Initiative: For every product sold, Natural Fitness will fund the planting of a tree, which can remove up to 2,000 pounds of pollution from the atmosphere. Through various partner organizations, the company hopes to improve the lives of people around the world by implementing sustainable land-use programs utilizing the trees provided. Locations for planting trees vary; but past projects have been conducted throughout Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Each location and project is researched and developed to implement the most effective plan possible; one that is best for the people and eco-system involved.
  • Offsetting the eco-footprint of their employees and offices.
  • Offering the most environmentally-friendly products available.
  • Use a "green" web host company that utilizes solar panels to power its data center and office.
  • Partnering with like-minded companies to raise public awareness about the environmental problems created through use of fossil fuels and other non-sustainable practices.
  • Using recycled content paper in business cards, letterhead, envelopes, labels, checks, and printer/copier paper. All of the product packaging and inserts that Natural Fitness uses are made with recycled paper.
  • Using recycled packaging materials and boxes in the company's warehouse. They also pack with old newspapers and other recyclable paper products.
  • Helped create the Chicago Biodiesel Co-op, which educated, promotes, and produces locally-derived biofuels.
  • Greening the company's comprehensive recycling program and using natural light when possible.
  • Spearheaded an ambitious recycling program for the 500,000 square foot office building Natural Fitness occupies, along with 60 companies.

Customer Reviews:

  • Love this ball!
    I am pregnant and started experiencing back pain at 4 months, so I bought this ball to increase my core strength. My back isn't perfect, but the pain has lessened. I sit on it while using my laptop, reading the paper, watching tv... I plan to use it as a birthing ball in labor too. It is perfect for my height [4'11"], but my husband [5'6"} steals it when I'm not around. He says it's comfy. I just wish I didn't have to add extra air once a week. The pump is awful, but does the job. The measuring tape that comes with it is [...]. According to it, I still need to increase its circumference by 6cm, and that's not happening. All in all, a good buy. I paid extra for this one because other reviewers said it didn't attract dust and pet hair. I have two cats who shed everywhere, and I haven't had to clean the ball yet....more info
  • 45 cms ball
    The ball is good. The inflation pump is awful. you go 2 steps forward and one step back. finally I got it inflated with my car tire air compressor!...more info
  • Wonderful baby soother that fits our decor..
    I hate to say that I chose this exercise ball because it was an awesome color in the photo. And I gotta admit, in real life, it is an awesome color that goes well with our decor.

    I am 5'5" with a long torso/short legs and, unfortunately, this ball is too large for me to do most of the seated exercises. Currently, we have it partially deflated and use it to soothe our cranky newborn who will passes out after we hold him all swaddled up and bounce on it.

    As a former gym rat and physio therapy victim, the ball is great. Set up is easy, but it does take awhile for the plastic to soften enough that you can get it round and for the stink to go away. It does not have that cheap, slick GAIM feel that collects near vicinity dirt and hair. Its slightly textured surface has a better grip.

    I do like it a lot and would love to buy the same one but in a smaller size, but, alas, they do not manufacture it in the same color. So sad!...more info
  • Great Excercise Ball!
    I love my new ball! I had previously purchased a cheap one and was very disappointed. This ball is so much better than the lower quality ones. It is very thick and the texture is soft feeling. It also doesn't collect hair and dirt like the other one did which is very nice when you have pets. I love that it is a natural material. When I wanted to buy one I didn't think I would be able to meet that criteria, but this ball does! I couldn't get the ball to inflate using the hand pump that comes with it. I don't know if I was doing something wrong or what but I finally got out the foot pump from the cheap ball I bought and used that. It went much more quickly! I actually bought two of these (green for me and red for husband) and am very glad I did. The colors are great, too which is a big factor to me. I would definetly recommend the ball to anyone!...more info
  • The perfect stability ball!
    I love this thing!

    It doesn't smell, doesn't pick up every tiny bit of dog hair and gunk on my floors, is environmentally friendly, blows up easily and comes with a subscription to fitness magazine! And for every one purchased, they plant a tree!

    It's also good up to 600 pounds and feels nice and solid. I don't worry about bouncing all over the place on this thing, it's very sturdy and lightweight, too.

    I've found I enjoy bouncing on this instead of sitting on my couch while watching TV and makes me feel like I'm being somewhat productive. ;)...more info
  • Nice, but very firm
    I've had this ball for a few days now and use it at work to stretch and occasionally as a seat. At first I thought it would be impossible to inflate the ball to the specified 65 cm diameter, and indeed this was impossible with the included pump. Quite honestly, the pumps with these things are crap, but the ball itself seems to be of high quality. The box includes an adapter so you can use a bicycle pump, and this was MUCH easier than using the one that came with the ball. You may be surprised by how large the ball is when fully inflated, and it is extremely firm. I'm fairly light (for such a manly man) at 147 pounds, and the ball barely compresses under my weight. My expectation is that it will relax and soften a little bit with passing time. It is *relatively* odor free and doesn't seem to attract dirt. Or women....more info
  • Terrible pump, wrong size when full
    I got this pump to use at the end of my pregnancy and during labor. I chose 65cm for a reason, but this doesn't fill to that size, and the pump broke halfway through. I can't see it getting any fuller for at least 5-6cm more in diameter that is needed. I emailed the company and am awaiting a response, but I'm pretty disappointed being almost 9mo pregnant and not really having extra time to fiddle with a return and a replacement product....more info
