Happy with product; needed something low impact because of back and neck problems. Came with extra exercise cables. Needed something small because we live in a townhouse, not a long of extra room. Like that it folds up so it can be out of the way but easy to set back up to use.

Having tried almost every piece of exercise equipment available, i lucked upon this chair that seems made for me. Suffering from acute spinal stenosis, osteoarthritis, firbromylgia and polymylgia rheumatica, I was hard pressed to find something that I could use without winding up in more pain than when I began. Thank you to VQ Action Care for providing this life saving item. It sits in my living room so that my husband can use it also. He is 75..has Parkinsons Disease and has a heart problem. Getting him to do any exercise was impossible...UNTIL we received the Resistance Chair. He is now up to 5 minutes a couple of times a day. Miracles do happen. He can watch TV and still exercise. We have only had the chair for 5 days, what I cannot think of the words to express what a fantastic piece of equipment this is. I was thinking of joining the YMCA, but not now. Exercising in my own home, in private and not having to travel to the Y (gas saver and membership fee saver) makes this item perfect, at least for us. Thank you again to VQ.

I would have given this chair a 5 but the reason I gave it a 4 is the video. You aren't able to obtain any kind of videos to follow along with. For the elderly they sometimes need the guidance unless they can come up with things to do on their own. There is a general video but it goes through the exercises and then you can't remember them. There is also a chart but the writing is so tiny that to put it on the wall you can't read it. The chair is great though. It is a bit heavy if you plan on moving it around a lot, but very sturdy!

In later years I have ballooned to 350 pounds and my doctor told me to loose weight and exercise or face the consequences. I can't walk because of my weight and lung problems, so this has been a blessing. I like working along with the video that's included, and so far I have been keeping up with my exercise schedule. The price was $100 less than the manufacturer as well.
- How accurate was the sizing? Fits my 350 pound body

Received the resistance chair (re-conditioned) in good condition....only problem is the lack of resistance cables. If I had purchased a new chair and payed the full price I would have received higher and twice as many resistance cables. So now, I have to pay for additional cables at a price of $XX.00 per set bringing me up to the price of a "brand new chair". Hoodwinked again!
I purchased this exercise chair to help with shoulder pain. I chose it because of the resistance bands. I figured I would be less likely to injure myself than with free weights. I have used the chair almost daily and my shoulder pain is gone. The chair is very well made. I would have given 5 stars if the set included a few bands with higher resistance. They can be purchased separately, as can the over head attachment I purchased.
I am 73 and not able to walk as I would like, so I decided to try the Resistance Chair to get an over-all exercise regiment three times a week to start. This chair is remarkable, it is ready right out of the box. It performs just like advertised. It feels good to be able to get my joints moving without pain. I am very happy with my purchase. This Resistance Chair is refurbished, and it is just like new. I highly recommend this exercise system for seniors who have a lot or some limitations and can not go to a gym.
I bought this for my dad's birthday hoping he would use it on a daily basis. His job requires him to be mostly sedentary and he's already readying for retirement, so I knew I had to get him moving again soon. Once he became accustomed to its functionality, he hasn't stopped using it since! It's VERY EASY to use, takes up little space, and gets his arm, legs, and breathing in motion for a good workout. This was a great gift, probably my best :)
I've had a stroke and find the resistance chair extremely helpful in physical rehabilitation at home. The chair is easy to use and has different tension bands. I also purchased the shoulder stretcher and find it very effective for my frozen shoulder. I highly recommend this product.
Purchased the chair for use by my wife and myself. Product arrived on time specified. It can be used right out of the box with no set up required. We watched the instructional DVD and have been using the chair for about two weeks. So far, it's been a great tool for stretching and a little muscle toning. It has met all our expectations and we have recommended it to many of our friends. A real good buy.
I am a senior citizen and there are many exercises I am not able to do, due to knee, hip, and back problems. This chair is just right for me and helps loosen tight muscles and joints, plus providing a good cardio workout that is not too strenuous. Was a good price and shipped quickly.
I BOUGHT THIS BECAUSE I SAW IT ON TV AND THE DEMO LOOKED LIKE IT WOULD FIT MY CIRCUMSTANCE. I HAVE RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS AND EVEN THOUGH I DO TEACH WATER AEROBICS AT A SPA I DO NOT MOTIVATE MYSELF TO USE THE EQUIPMENT THERE?? I LIKE HAVING THIS RESISTANCE CHAIR IN MY OWN HOME TO DO WHEN I CAN WORK IT IN. THE EXERCISE RESISTANCE BANDS ON THE CHAIR MAKE IT THE PERFECT CHALLENGE FOR ANYONE...IT CAME IWTH A PROGRAM ON DVD AND I FOLLOW THAT BUT, HAVE STARTED INCREASING WHAT I DO...I AM GLAD THAT I PURCHASED THIS AS IT HAS HELPED ME TO MEET MY EXERCISE GOALS FOR MYSELF...AND THAT HELPS ME KEEP MOVING:-) BUY THIS--YOU WILL LOVE IT--FOLDS AND ROLLS TO STORE IN TWO SECONDS:-)
