Love this machine. It makes targeting your abs easy and can be done anytime. The movement is smooth, no jerking or sticking. It glides and you can really feel the crunch at the top of the movement. It also does the counting for you.
The first day I used it I was not sure if it had any effect. I did feel a tingling in my hands and cheeks, but the next day I did my heavy housecleaning. Moving furniture washing floors stc. When I move my furniture to clean under it, my back and body really hurt at the end of the day. When I started to hurt, I used the swing machine, and it took away that pain. I also realized that I did not hurt while I was moving all that furniture. I am a senior citizen, and I am really thrilled. My husband is now using it. I bought this maching mostly to get better circulation in my legs. I am so thrilled to see that this maching is doing so much more than I thought it would.
I wanted a device that I could not only do ab work with...but also work on my lower back and sides. The Stamina Ab/Hyper Bench Pro totally fits the bill for me. I do think that someone is who is taller - 6'+ - might want to be careful purchasing it. I'm 5'7"...and while I can see someone taller than me still being able to work out with ease on it - I think the 6' range might start pushing its capabilities.
Other than than - if you're looking for a great apparatus to get an excellent ab/back/sides workout - I recommend this piece of equipment highly!
My husband and I haven['t had a chance to clean our back bedroom out and put it together yet;however, I cannot wait!!! I have been wanting one for quite some time and can't believe I was able to buy one sooo reasonably priced! I feel very blessed!
This is a great incline bench which I purchased for doing sit ups, etc. It arrived on time, and it took me about 20-30 minutes to assemble it. It is really sharp looking and it works great. The cushioning on it is a plus versus doing it on a mat/floor. Great product!
What can I say - it does what I want it to - mainly bought for crunches. Although I am only 5'2" - this is the size recommended for my height - my last one was bigger which I liked - so I would have liked a bigger size, but this will do.
This is a great product added to my daughters dance workout ! She uses this to strengthen her core and help with a strong balance. Our daughters ballet teacher recommended this and we are very satisfied with the results.
Report of 7 days so far on my new "vibration plate"
Before I ordered mine (***) (I'm a frugal guy)
I read about 300 reviews, looked at 40+ videos (99.76% positive)
Put in maybe 7 hours of research (I was impressed)
Most of the reviews & studies suggested 3 or 4 10 minute sessions a week,
That (supposedly) would equal 3 or 4 1 hour gym workouts a week
(I am a "nerd") I do 3 10 minute sessions a day.
!st session, standing & watching TV
2nd session sitting on it & watching TV
3rd session, "pushup position & no TV"
Cramps in my hands 90% gone
Cramps anywhere 90% gone
My neck is looser (I've had problems for years)
My left arm & shoulder pain (when driving for more than 30 minutes at a time) Gone.
Invited my friend Emma (recovering arthroscopy knee surgery)
To try it (she did, along with her daughter Errin)
After 2 sessions of 20 minutes each,(Friday & Saturday)
She reported to me on Sunday "no pain after working all day preparing a family picnic"
It's hard to believe *** investment could accomplish all that
We live & learn.
Try it once and you will be convinced.. great for people that have aching back and hips... you can set it and forget it at the speed you like it does the rest. I notice that my heart rate increases when I get on it and I am barely lifting a finger.. but then after 10 minutes on it I feel fantastic. Get one you wont regret it...
Great Exercise ball. I'm seeing a doctor at Airsotti and they suggested I use a ball for some of my therapy. Instead of asking what they had in stock I search on *** for a ball with good reviews and so far this is works well with my therapy. Funny thing is they stopped me doing the exercise I was doing to use this ball, but they did give me advise on other exercises to do with the ball. Look forward to more challenging therapy.
I ordered this chair on Monday 11/18 and received by noon on Wednesday 11/20. Shipping was very fast and arrived in perfect condition. The chair is very easy to assemble and adjust. I thought the process of blowing up the ball would be daunting but it was simple as well, even included a hand pump and additional plugs. Make sure to pay attention to the recommended adjustment time frame. It does take your body some time to get used to sitting in a chair such as this. Don't assume that you will put it together then spend the whole day sitting in it comfortably. This is quite a comfortable chair but you do have to allow for an adjustment period, especially if you have a bad back like I do. If you spend a good amount of time at a desk or in a chair on a daily basis I would highly recommend purchasing an exercise ball chair as it causes you to participate in active sitting where as you are contantly making small adjustments and engaging your muscles while improving your posture and core strength.
I have been using this chair for a couple of weeks now and I'm pretty happy with it. It's been very good on my back, my posture has been much better while sitting for long periods.
I really don't want to complain about this product, it's price is very good for how comfortable it is.
The only thing that I did need to change had to do with the wheel locks. The manufacturer put them on all four wheels, which is needed if you are going to use this chair for exercise, but I would randomly step on one of the brakes when sitting down. A few days ago I cut the plastic brake tabs off of the wheels and haven't had a problem since.
I will buy another one when this one wears out.
The color selection is great. The balance disc comes inflated but I would like to inflate it more. No directions come with it, but looks like it takes a standard sports ball inflation needle. Comes with a warranty.
i was soo upset about my shipment it came in the box that pictures the ball all over it a week and a half before christmas so naturally when my husband got the mail he already knew one of his gifts. very upsetting. but overall the ball is good. just have it shipped somewhere else if its a gift
This item is helping me because now I have a place to secure my feet while I crunch. The assembly was simple. I am injoying being 61 yrs old and overstock helps me afford the many quality items I need or want.
If I had anything negative to say it would be that it didn't come with a pump, but that was no big deal. I bought this as a therapy ball for my son with SPD and he loves it. The little nodules give him the input he needs and it is large enough to do several different exercises with him as well as stay with him as he grows.
I had been reading about UGI fitness exercise ball and the reviews were great but not the prices! After finding this on OVERSTOCK I couldn't believe the price! An exceptional value for a great exercise kit. The at home Ugi fitness bundle comes with everything you need for a full body workout without injuring joints or pulling muscles with the great dvd which shows you exactly how to do it. If you don't have a dvd player, the UGI fitness guide which is included in this package shows you exactly which exercise to do and the proper form along with modifications. This is by far the best at home kit I have ever gotten!
