I am not a senior citizen but looked at this product because I knew that I was out of shape and needed a place to start. I am 30+ lbs overweight and havent done any exercise in years. I looked at many products, this one seemed to be the ticket. It works on many muscle groups and It has allowed me to exercise without being overly stressed. I feel better, not only physically but emotionally as well. The workouts are "just enough" . I know as I get stronger and more agile I can increase the workouts by changing the resistance cables. The pace of the workout is perfect for me. Dont get me wrong, you "feel" the workouts but the stretching and strength training is such that you know that you are helping yourself. I thought it was a little expensive but after seeing it and using it, it is worth the price.
