gostanding about us

When it comes to our health, it’s often the little things that count the most.

Drink enough water, get your seven hours of shuteye, don’t spend too much time in front of the screen…it’s easier said than done. Luckily, Rome wasn’t built in a day, and you can completely transform your life for the better by taking baby steps today.

Our goal at Go Standing.org is to help you be happier and healthier. We believe that you can achieve better wellness by simply sitting less and using high-quality ergonomic products at home or at the office, or both.

Prolonged sitting is among the leading preventable causes of death in the US today. There is a direct link between a lack of physical activity and obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and a host of mental health issues. We don’t want you to fall into that trap.

That is why we produce step-by-step guides on how to minimize the negative effects of too much sitting. We do our research and review the top ergonomic products such as standing desks, chairs, and treadmills out there to help you feel better wherever you are.


Our reviews

Our team scouts the Internet and interviews real people on Facebook and Reddit to bring you detailed reviews of the best ergonomic products that will suit your particular lifestyle.

First, we analyze what manufacturers have to offer, and then we take into account your unique situation and needs. If you’re an ergo-geek who loves putting together hyper-modifiable furniture, we’ve got you.

Do you live in a unique apartment that has its own vibe? We make sure to recommend chic options to you. If you have a family and carefully consider each member’s needs, we take that into account as well.

All of the ergonomic products that we review need to meet the basic requirements of comfort, convenience, craftsmanship, ease of assembly, and versatility.

Then, we analyze the price and make our final judgment about the overall product.

We compare the numerous offers on the market and rate products in categories such as “best for home,” “best in price,” “best for small spaces,” and so on.

Our goal is to save you time and money by helping you make the best choice of ergonomic products straight away. Think of us as the ultimate information resource before making a purchase.

If you own and love an ergonomic product, get in touch! We’d love to interview you.
