HM. Worth it

Aeron. Worth it.

I went for a secretlab. Just as good as HM imo (had the aeron and the standard black office chair at my previous job), but for only ~$350 for the short person version

I’m debating between a HM aeron/embody or steelcase gesture/leap

Have a steel case gesture and it’s dope

Aeron & Eames, both 2000% worth it!!

Just got the HM. Zero back pain in the last month.

Aeron*

Steelcase. Also worth it. Definitely could find a cheaper ergo chair but it’s comfortable, love the aessthetic and I feel it will hold up well.

I had a Leap chair and it was amazing. I have a Body Bilt now and I despise it.

I have an Embody chair. Love love love it. Best investment. Had over 5 years and still going strong. I suggest trying out different chairs and figuring out what your preferred sitting position is.

Where does one go to try out different luxury office chairs

Worth it. I stopped traveling regularly about 6 years ago and bought the chair then and it’s held up great.

If you don't wanna spend an ungodly amount (<$300), I'd recommend Ikea Markus. Really sturdy, long-lasting, ergonomic, and comfortable. Not the prettiest but really the best value out there imo. Steer away from the Autonomous chair. Their reviews are fake and the material is quite cheap for the price your paying.

Sorry associate 1 you’re getting roasted

Looking for a treadmill for a standing desk. But also want one that I can run on. I would like walking distances to go up to 4-4.5 and running up to 8-9 mph. Would be great to have one of those that the rail and be moved and the treadmill placed under the desk for walking. Incline would be great. Any suggestions or is it technically not feasible to have all of this in one machine?
