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 bought the Definity 20-lb workout bar about a week ago. I have used it several times. This is a high quality weighted exercise bar. The end caps are hard rubber and the bar is padded. My hands are a little arthritic and the padding is thick and really comfortable. The bar is about 51 1/2 feet long and the circumference of the bar is 5 1/2 inches. I picked this weighted bar so I could do different kinds of exercises and not just tone my arms. There are many You-Tube video's, but my favorite is called "The 8 Body Bar Exercises for women", being I'm a woman. Of course you don't have to be a man to use this bar or watch the video. The only con is you can't change the weight of the bar. Since the main reason I got this bar was for the padding it suits my needs perfectly. I will be buying more Definity exercise weighted bars in the future as my need for different weights change.
I purchased this Stamina X Hyper Bench a few weeks ago in order to build the muscles in the small of my back. I had been doing back extensions at the gym, but needed something at home. The Bench came nicely packed with very clear instructions and exactly the right amount of hardware, including wrenches to assemble it. I put this together in less than 20 minutes using my own tools. The bench is perfect for use at home. It takes up very little room and folds up nicely so you can put it away when not in use. It is sturdy and is rated at 250 lbs. One thing I must add: If you are very tall, this might be a bit small for you. Then again, if you are a very tall person, you are used to things not fitting! I highly recommend this bench. I use it daily for both back and side extensions. For the price, I don't believe you can do better.
The colors & the fact that the bells are weight labeled makes using the bells quite easy. I especially love the texture of the material covering the bells. The feel of the bells is a bit rough & allows for one to get a better grip while exercising. I don't really see a major problem with the plastic holder as long as one does not keep moving the bell holder with the total 20 pound dumbbells hanging from the holder. I feel the holder is basically used to keep the unit intact & not for mobility. I would recommend the purchase of this item.
