Just what I needed and can't beat the price. I liked how these came in a set. Every other dumbbells I was looking at you had to buy individually.

Whole body vibration therapy was something I first discovered in spas in Los Angeles. I later found that Access Hollywood, Extra, The Doctors and Tyra Banks all have segments on the topic that you can view on YouTube. I became intrigued with trying this kind of therapy after suffering from immediate and drastic and very painful digestion issues (SIBO or Small Intestinal Bacteria Overgrowth) after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis. That led to symptoms of malabsorption, causing extreme fatigue, muscle joint pain and weight gain. Already having seen an OBGYN, GI doc (for diagnosis and antibiotic treatment) and a ND (giving me strict diet and supplement plan), I was on the search for additional natural solutions to bring a solution, since I was still suffering a year after surgery. I knew exercise had to help, but I was in too much pain to move much at all, let alone get myself to a spa every day for a ten-minute treatment. (Getting ready for work or going to the grocery store or doing laundry or cooking was so difficult; I felt disabled.) I needed something in my home, that I could use daily. When researching affordable mini home machines, this was the most compact and the lowest price one I found (due to Overstock’s competitive pricing and wonderful $2.95 shipping fee for all items). I wanted something small that I could put by the couch (to lean on if I needed to) and TV when using and put away in a closet when company came. This machine is no joke. It is a wonderful quality machine. (I believe it is from Japan.) It is very sturdy and the electronic panel is divine. Just lean over to power it on, program it (I like the auto-program #2 the best), step on (bare feet with socks is best), and press start. Ten minutes a day is all that is recommended. I have also heard that 20 minutes a day is common, but no more. The first time I used it, I felt relaxed and jolted at the same time. The forced circulation from the vibrations makes you feel giddy or euphoric and energized. The plate that you stand on moves back and forth, left to right, right to left, kind of like a skateboarder would, but in tiny, tiny fast movements. (You cannot see the plate swaying.) It is a really amazing product. My energy, mood and digestion greatly improved in just a few days. My skin even looks newer and more toned. I am even losing weight (the most important reason I wanted this machine, because I am vain and was extremely unhappy with the post-surgery weight gain). My mobility (or my ability to walk with less rigid movement) and joint pain has vastly improved. I still have digestive issues, but if I feel uncomfortable after eating and get on the machine an hour or so after eating, it greatly reduces pain and bloating and lackluster energy from digestive problems. I have had this machine for half a month and it is improving my health and therefore my quality of life. I highly, highly, hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiighly recommend. Your health is your wealth and this machine will not disappoint. The Benefits of Whole Body Vibration Machine: (1) INCREASES CIRCULATION (for good health) (2) INCREASES LYMPHATIC CIRCULATION (for detox) (3) TONES ALL MUSCLE GROUPS (to burn fat) (4) INCREASES METABOLISM (to burn fat) (5) RAISES ENERGY levels (helps chronic fatigue) (6) REDUCES MUSCLE AND JOINT PAIN (helps arthritis and fibromyalgia) (7) INCREASES BONE DENSITY (helps osteoporosis) (8) IMPROVES NERVOUS SYSTEM functions (9) IMPROVES ENDOCRINE SYSTEM (increases serotonin, reduces cortisol, increases testosterone) (10) IMPROVES GI SYSTEM (helps digestion, colonic movement, IBS)

I ordered dumbells I received dumbells. Good thing about overstock is no matter what it is the shipping is under 3 dollars. So great deal for delivery of 20 pounds worth of weight.

I have wanted an inversion table for years and finally took the plunge. This is one of the best things I could have done. This table is sturdy, easy to put together and comfortable to use. It has increased my flexibility and I can't imagine my health without it.

I bought this to help me get rid of a chronic sinus infection. "Going batty" for 20 minutes a day has done the trick in just a few days. It is also a great way to stretch the spine and relax. I would recommend this product to anyone for health maintenance. One needs good comfortable shoes to keep the feet from losing circulation. I find it helps to just jiggle the feet once in a while.

This table was fairly easy to setup and feels safe when used. The price can't be beat, especially with shipping, you won't regret it if you need some de-stressing and pain relief. The back pains have been alleviated and once you get used to the table (about a week), the relaxing feeling is excellent. I would get some thick socks or shoes for upside down comfort. i would recommend it to anyone with some pain and someone who wants long term health benefits (decompression). A+ product. The price is the best anywhere on Overstock, they are the best. Thanks for this deal that has been so beneficial to my life. Definitely not regretted buying this table.

I recently ordered a Cresendo rebounder from OverStock.com. I recieved my order in three days from placing the order. The rebounder was everything the description said it would be. Extremely easy to assemble. Well made. Takes up a small space in my living room. Easy to put away, when I need the space. Wonderful to use. Would recommend this to anyone looking to better their health. Rebounders are also known as Lymphasizers. Light jumping along with deep breathing helps to get your lymphatic system moving, which helps clean your blood, and increases your energy. The rebounder offers low impact , jumping and running. Excellent cardio exercise.. Come on people, get up from the computer, TV, and couch and start moving, and feel better. Gotta love this product! Thank-you overstock.com for getting me up and going!

I write a lot of reports and sit A LOT. I wanted to make the time I spend seated more "active". This does the trick. Very easy to put together (minutes, because we used an air compressor that we had) and I have been using it ever since. I still have to think about my posture (I have learned to slump on this thing when I am distracted!). I have attempted the few exercises that came with the chair--nothing earth shattering but it does remind you to re-engage your core. The size was perfect for my home office. I have a nice set of shelves and desk and I was afraid that a round, rubber chair would look tacky but all you see when you come into the room is the tip of the black frame--perfect!

Functional weights. They do what they're supposed to do...which is to help me get into shape!

This is a great way to exercise your muscles without exhaustion. If you have lung problems or other health issues, this is your answer. You can feel the difference in muscle tone in two weeks. I would guess it is good for circulation as well. I have suggested the machine to several of my friends.

This is the best health purchase I have ever made. I have a first degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do. I also have two previously dislocated knees to show for it. I've tried drugs, vitamins, ointments for years with no luck. One month with this Inversion Table has me almost back to pre-knee-trouble form. Arthur C. Clarke in "2010: Odyssey Three" says, "Gravity is the bringer of old age." Short stints with the Inversion Table three times a day is the closest we can come on the Earth to reversing gravity and old age. Don't think. Just buy it and begin reversing the aging process. (By the way - I am 53 and look forward to still being in great shape when I'm 150.) P.S. - The Ironman label on this product made the purchasing decision for me. Best hardware for the price, and Overstock had it at my front door within 5 days.

I received this rebounder yesterday, and I was thrilled to know that all I had to do was pull it out of the box, remove the plastic protective caps from the leg screws, and simply screw on the legs. I've read other reviews of similar types of rebounders where it took several people to put together, and I knew those weren't for me. I tried it out this morning and it's exactly what I was looking for in terms of form and function, and the price is exceptional. I've done some research regarding the health benefits of rebounding and was very surprised to find out that this specific type of low-impact activity can make a tremendous positive change to one's health on many levels.

I have an inversion table at home. i used the boots with a pull up bar at my work site overseas. It turned out to be a bit of a challenge to get up and down on a straight bar but I eventually figured it out. bend your knees. the padding was good and the snaps worked well to get a good fit each time. It was hard to tell when i was ordering what size I was actually purchasing. Be careful and make sure you get the right size. I would recommend these boots for an experienced hanger or someone with mild or no health/back issues. Unlike an inversion table which offers angles of degrees, straight down is your only option with boots. an inversion table gives your spine, neck and joints time to adjust and expand as you slowly go further and further over. Hanging with boots is sudden and possibly painful if you have back problems, etc. I don't think you can really do damage to your body (but what do I know) but it might hurt first timers and shock them. Call your chiropractor or doctor !

I purchased this item about a month ago because of the product reviews and my health problems making it difficult for me to do many types of exercise. I have used it daily since I received it. I cannot say that I have noticed any difference to my body composition, but I do feel better after I spend 10 minutes on the machine so I continue to use it. Yesterday, the on/off button on the back of the machine stopped working (leaving it in the on position). I didn't expect something like this to happen so quickly, so I am very disappointed. Nonetheless, I can still use it so I will. The arms have never been very sturdy and shake when the machine is operating. I believe these have loosened over the last month as well. Overall, I believe it comes down to personal preference and your expectations of the machine. If I had to do it all over again, I don't know if I would purchase it but I will continue using it until it stops working completely.

i use this every day at work! my coworker already bought one as well. the only glitch is that it's rubber, so if you sit on it without getting up to walk around, it can get a little sweaty.

I have been using a lower model AeroPilates machine for past 10 years and it was finally showing some wear so I finally took the plunge and got my dream machine! I hesitated for the past year due to the price but I am so happy I got this machine. This machine is the "Cadillac" of pilates machines. It is a very sturdy machine and I absolutely love it! I am tall and wanted a longer machine and while this one is longer, I was still hitting the end of the machine with certain exercises so my husband moved the stops on the end and now it is perfect! Don't settle for a less sturdy machine with such an important part of your health. If a cheaper one lasted 10 years I should have this one a lifetime! I read a review about a worry about bands becoming weak but I can tell you that the bands last many years without a hint of weakness
