The Resistance Chair supplies me with an exercise option that I did not have before. I have extremely bad balance, and had to give away some of my other exercise equipment. This chair is very stable, provides exercise options for all body parts while you are mostly sitting, and it is possible to obtain a bicycle attachment that turns it into an exercise bike. It also requires NO assembly, no tools to change the pulleys or attach the bike, and folds up like a regular folding chair. I am disabled and this chair is a terrific addition to my battle against deterioration of muscles.
I purchased this product because I am a 44 year old lady that can not lift any heavy weights because I have 3 cervical herniations and 3 more in my thorasic area. My activities are normal except when it comes to working out. I walk on the treadmill about 45 minutes every other day and I do the Resistance Chair almost every day. It's a wonder machine to keep my muscles in movement/shape but not so much that I'm in so much pain that I have to take my pain killers. It's great, I highly recommend it for those who have injuries and want to keep movement in their lives. Remember, the more we sit around the weaker our muscles become. The Resistance Chair is exactly what everyone needs to get a decent work-out without over doing it.
as a stroke survivor, there aren't many exercise options open to a one armed , one legged voiceless person who wants to live to see her grandchildren grandchildren graduate from college.this is perfect! in my bedroom, i am free to struggle as much as i need to in order to get the job done. my friend who is able bodied but as old as i am, saw mine and wanted one too! she loves hers too. as they say in the ads---just do it!
I saw this exerciser on TV and did a search. Of course, found it less expensive on OverStock.Com. This is exactly what I needed and as I have various friends and family with many disabilities and variouos age groups, someone always finds something they can do. It helps to view the CD and place the poster in view of your workout. I highly recommend this product and OVERSTOCK.COM!
I have some medical problems, and can't stand for any length of time - as well as limiting a lot of my physical activity. While looking through the exercise equipment saw this chair; thought it might be something that I could use. The price was great. In fact, compared to other items I've looked at, it was a steal. Received it about two weeks ago.and It was really much more than I expected. Easy to set up - sturdy - comortable and after looking at the chart of excersies that comes with the chair, I realized that I picked a winner!
If you're concerned about storage, it folds up easily and can be put into any closet or behind a chars, etc without any difficulty. Put mine in the middle of the family room and use it many times during the day. Figured if it was in front of me all the time, I'd use it more often- it's working. Also, since I've been unable to do any forms of exercise for such a long time, I started with only a few minutes at a time but it gets baetter daily. I just love, love, love it !!!
If you need to get some exercise and like me can't stand or walk very well due to knee arthritis, this chair serves the purpose. The instructions, both written and on DVD are east to follow, and if you have the space, there's even a poster with the different reoutines diagramed. The chair itself only takes up as much room as a regular folding chair and is light enough to be moved around. You do need a little more space to maneuver when working out on it. This won't make you an olympic start but it will help with mobility and strength and give you something to do while watching TV.
I purchased a refurbished item and the seat IS NOT level. As you set on it the right side is lower than the left side. So you are always tilted to the right. But It meets my needs and not worth the cost to return.
One easy fix would be the resistance bands. When purchasing you should be given the choice of which bands to receive.
Instructional dvd missing from shipment; that was replaced. However, on first use of chair the chair back separated from the frame. Upon closer inspection discovered that the plastic knob that should be inserted into hollow frame had broken off and been pushed up into the seat back itself. Also a stabilization pin that helps hold the chair back to the frame was missing. I understand that this was a refurbished chair, but I didn't expect it to be a broken one.
LOVE this chair!! I have a badly injured shoulder and this is helping me get back the mobility. I told my Doctor that I had purchased it and he was very pleased. It is harder than I thought it would be to do the workouts, but I can do them at home without going into physical therapy all the time.
Does it come with the 2 DVD's, leisurely living & strong heart, strong body, that says it comes with on their website.

Hello saddleburns1, this includes an instructional DVD; however, it does not include those 2 specific DVD's. If you have any additional questions please feel free to let us know. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 29, 2014
Mine came with a CD showing the exercises. (No programs) It also came with a poster of the same exercises.
BTW... I've had my chair for 5 years this year with not a lot of use. The screws in the front of the seat are coming through. The chair will soon break so I can't use it at all.
The company... no support via email, they said they've changed the seat nothing they can do. Would check first before buying. Must be a reason for changing the seat...Maybe I'm not the only one? Not good if you are elderly and the chair breaks!falalalalalalalala on Jun 29, 2014
Does it come with the bands for your legs? And what about the wheel like thing to help you lose in your waist line?

Hello sfaughn, the Resistance Chair Exercise System (Refurbished) this comes only as show. Please let us know if you have any further question.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 17, 2013
I do not recall extra pieces. I use it for the arm strengthening to help my shoulders and have had it for a while. I do not re-call other pieces.cookiebaker2010 on Jan 7, 2014
Just what is shown in the picture. The step, the back support, cables, instructional CD and poster. The rest you buy separately including additional CD's - this one is instructions only.
BTW... Have had my chair 5 yrs this year. Screws under seat in front corners are coming through. Not good. Can no longer use the chair. Send email to company, no help. Said chair seat has been redesigned. Perhaps this is why.falalalalalalalala on Jun 29, 2014

The only warranty for this item is a 12-month replacement on hardware. Unfortunately we do not offer an additional warranty for this item. In regards to the item being refurbished, all this means is that the item has been previously returned. Majority of the time these items were returned for a buyer's remorse reason. Regardless of the initial return reason, all of our refurbished items go through a series of extensive testing to make sure the item can be resold without having any defects. The item will not show any signs of wear and tear either.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 25, 2012
